Reviews:

''Junior'' is the third studio album by the Norwegian electronic duo Röyksopp. It was made available for listening on their website on 13 March 2009, before being officially released on 23 March 2009. The album has been described as a mix between the styles of the two previous studio albums, ''Melody A.M.'' and ''The Understanding'', and features vocals from female singers Robyn, Lykke Li, Karin Dreijer Andersson and Anneli Drecker.

Röyksopp premiered the first track from the album, "Happy Up Here", on 9 January 2009 on BBC Radio 1. The second single was "The Girl and the Robot", a song featuring Swedish singer Robyn. "This Must Be It", featuring Dreijer Andersson, was released as the album's third single on 26 October 2009.

"It's What I Want" was included as a part of the official soundtrack to the Electronic Arts video game ''FIFA 10''. "Röyksopp Forever" was also used in the background of the Flashforward Channel 5 promos during September 2009 and used as backing music on ''The X Factor'' 2009 in live shows. - Wikipedia


JUNIOR is Royksopp's most accomplished release yet, an inspired and ambitious musical confection fusing pure pop hooks with "technoperatic" dancefloor slammers. Featuring a team of top female vocalists/collaborators including Swedish superstar Robyn, Lykke Li, Karim Dreijer (The Knife) as well as fellow Norwegian Annell Drecker (who appeared on Royksopp's debut Melody A.M.).
