Robyn – Body Talk
This is the pop record that everyone is still trying to make. Period. This is as good as it gets. So powerful and muscular and tender all at once. I live for this album. I don't know – everyone's been trying to do this record since then. The economy of it is just so amazing, but still so powerful. There are some really intensely emotional songs, that are on the edge of being like children's songs. They're so pop and then lyrically they're so good. The production's so simple, but so banging. Just somehow, it's a paradigm.
