Can't wait. Melody A.M is still one of my most played albums, and there seems to be a real deficit of good electronic bands at the moment.

From allmusic.com:

Nordic duo Röyksopp compensated for the cold climes of their native Tromsø by making some of the warmest, most inviting downbeat electronica of the new millennium, exemplified by early singles like "Eple" and "Poor Leno." The pair, Torbjørn Brundtland and Svein Berge, both grew up in Tromsø and began recording in the early '90s. Local-made-good Geir Jenssen (aka Biosphere) provided tutelage and almost convinced the duo to record for R&S sublabel Apollo. After a few years apart, Brundtland and Berge met back up in Bergen and re-formed Röyksopp in 1998. The group released a few singles on Tellé, then signed up to the big beat label Wall of Sound. The Röyksopp debut was 2001's "Eple" single; both "Eple" and another track ("Poor Leno") earned a slot on over a dozen chill-out compilations that year or the next. The first full-length, Melody A.M., appeared in late 2001.

Agreed! I'm really, really looking forward to this hunk of plastic. I think that Royksopp can possibly do no ill.. I mean have you heard all their wickedawesome remixes??

also peeps who like royksopp.. look into Drum Island's self-titled disc taht came out in i think 98 (if you can find it).. there's some stuff there that royksopp kinda borrowed for melody am. and all around it's a pretty cool record if you like royksopp probly up your alley.

So this is being released next week (July 12). I'm sure some of you have heard it (seeing as I "received" a copy of the single from a member of this board), what do you think?

All I've heard is the single, 'Only This Moment'. I quite like it

Here's the first review I've seen:
http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/record...standing.shtml

The best part is that this album has Röyksopp being a lot more Röyksopp than the last one. If bits of Melody A.M. had them sounding all masterful and immaculate but not entirely league-of-their-own, this one does a lot to correct that. Meaning this is the one that puts them firmly and officially up there in the top tier of the dance-music crossover-album crowd, up with the Daft Punks and, umm, Basement Jaxxes. Really: Good for them.





Sounds good. Am I the only person hyped about this?!
