    Good morning fembots, welcome to The Robyn Rate. Here we will rate all of her studio albums, collaborative mini-albums and a selection of rarities (the songs that weren't chosen will be highlighted throughout the submission period).

    Robyn is arguably one of the most influential pop singers of the past twenty five years. There’s ripples of her music in Britney Spears' debut album to Taylor Swift's latest album. Robyn is truly a one of a kind artist, who understands how to navigate the pop landscape, trailblazing alone where it goes next. This excerpt from her excellent Guardian profile sums it up best for me:

    "There was a point after Robyn’s mid-2000s reappearance, says her friend and collaborator Joseph Mount of the British band Metronomy, where you started hearing “more than one Robyn-style track on every pop person’s record”. That is her influence in the ricocheting intensity of Rihanna’s We Found Love and Ariana Grande’s Love Me Harder; in the sledgehammer synths of Taylor Swift’s Welcome to New York. Robyn’s trademark – songs that make you want to dance through tears – runs through Emotion, the acclaimed album by Call Me Maybe singer Carly Rae Jepsen, and Lorde’s Melodrama. When Lorde and her co-producer Jack Antonoff performed on Saturday Night Live last year, they placed a framed photograph of Robyn on the piano. “Robyn has definitely been part of paving the way for pop stars who fall a little to the left of the Top 40 norm,” says British star Charli XCX, who has followed Robyn in pushing pop beyond mainstream norms."

    Without further ado, here is what we will be rating:

  5. PLEASE make sure I do this, because if Robyn (the album) doesn't get it's dues I'm going to lose it.

  6. I can smell blood already.

  7. Here to support my faves and delve deeper into her earlier discography.

    The EPs that came between Body Talk and Honey better not get done wrong.
     
  8. Y’all are gonna do Beach2K20 dirty. I just know it

    This is going to be a bloodbath, and frankly, I'm perched for the fights.
     
  10. Let's not tank two career highlights only because they happened pre-Robyn mmmkay?




    Good.
     
  11. No 'The Girl and the Robot'?
     
  12. aux

    Shit! I don't know why it isn't on there, as I do have it on the list. Let me quickly edit.
     
  13. Wait, I didn't even notice. If we're including Mr Flopfat, then we need Girl & The Robot!
     
    Remorque and Sprockrooster like this.
  14. Ooh never realised there was a Robyn song in the best Melodifestivalen interval ever <3

    The Girl and The Robot is part of the rate, and I've added two extra rarities so there's not a massive jump from 1999 to 2014 in there x
     
    evilsin, soratami, Remorque and 6 others like this.
  16. The idea of people not rating some of the songs 10 (or 11) is already making me anxious.

    Also there must be at least 10 songs worth an 11, if not 20.

    This is fantastic.

  17. I'm BEYOND excited for this. I know Self Titled, Body Talk and Honey pretty well but I'm excited to dive into her earlier albums (Don't Stop The Music from what I've heard is pretty solid) and the EPs.
     
    evilsin, Remorque, nooniebao and 4 others like this.
  18. Oh I forgot Ceasar. A bangah
     
  19. Reading the tracklist for Body Talk.

    I mean there are plenty of girls out there who wouldn’t have a Greatest Hits that strong.

    I am kind of scared I am also physically and mentally unable to rate anything form Honey with less than a nine.

    Don't Stop The Music is phenomenal, has many career highlights. I think people will really like the rarities section, as I'm sure there's a couple in there that people have never heard.
