Формируйте собственную коллекцию записей Röyksopp. THE UNDERSTANDING, Röyksopp’s second album, might not be as immediate as their first, but its charms slowly reveal themselves upon repeated listens. The delicacy of Triumphant doesn’t have the strengths of, say, She’s So, but has a ghostly quality of its own. For those who prefer Röyksopp’s more danceable tracks, Only This Moment is a delicious pop confection.
When the Norwegian production duo Röyksopp dropped their first album, Melody . it sounded as though they were on a stopover from another planet. Otherworldly samples and a crisp production sense combined to make the singles "Eple" and "Sparks" perfect examples of the downbeat form and near-ubiquitous inclusions on chillout compilations.
The vocal-free tracks scattered through here are as much of a change from the sun on the last album: It's "Röyksopp's Night Out" stuff, sometimes even deeper and lost-in-spacier than the vocal spots. Alpha Male" kicks a few of this year's rock moves, but it can't help making them rush instead of stomp. A couple of slow-funk touches give you a foothold on the earth (see "Someone Like Me"), but the vibe can still come close to the Marianna Trench pumped full of meringue. Don't worry too much if the first headphone listen puts you to sleep:.
Röyksopp : The Understanding. But it seems like they need to choose a direction before they start veering in so many at once. The Understanding has some hit potential, but it works better as a singles collection than as a cohesive whole. In a way, I see Röyksopp going in the same direction as Air. One impressive debut, a disjointed follow-up, and the next thing you know, they’re off creating something entirely new and beautiful. We’ll be waiting for that third part in the meantime.
