Should be used as placed on hold music for a brothel. Garbage.

This was my favourite album in college. It is like a time travel machine, immediately bringing me back to that time, the people and memories. Some bands and albums have lasted the test of time and I have listened to my whole life, and some serve a purpose for a time, and this was the latter. Listening back again though, its a great album, great melodies and 00s synthy beats, maybe even a hint of norwegian disco. I think it got overplayed and used too much in ads, but after a break, it still holds up.

There aren't enough words in the English language to truly express how I feel about this album, all the different emotions it elicits in me, how Sparks still makes me cry without fail. It's such a work of art, no track without reason, everything just beautifully in place. I adore this album and every single memory I have associated with it and its tracks. Just superb.

AppleMusic says this album is dance music. I disagree. I think it’s electronic music to somewhat turn your brain off and enjoy the mood. This album is Brian Eno (the airport one) to me, but actually interesting. I listened several times, partly because I couldn’t get through the whole thing at once. I thoroughly enjoyed it more each time. A good find.

This is a surprisingly good electronic album. I know it's basic to compare electronic bands to Moby but this album really reminds me of peak Moby. It's got a great down-tempo vibe, killer trip-hop groves, the vocals are sparse and textural, and the whole thing just oozes sophistication. You can tell these guys care deeply about making sure that everything is perfect and balanced. The attention to detail is astounding. This album is a whole feeling and I'm here for it.

Royksopp are Norwegian according to wiki. Norway is fucking cold. So its fucking remarkable that they manage to create quite such a summery vibe here! Chilled out Dance music with soul. not my Genre but a very pleasant listen. Press play and hear the snow begin to melt. 4/5

Experience being on hold with a modernist Scandanavian cell phone company, or watching a low energy Dr. Who chase scene, or perhaps a languid dialogue-free hand job video from a dubious "educational" VHS ordered from the back of a magazine... Is this where all these electronica tropes got invented? A fair bit of variety, but then a fair bit of monotony within individual songs.

Boring beep boop music. I'm never going to think about listening to this album again. I wish the entire album sounded like the first two songs - they generally get more and more boring as time goes on. I don't know if that's just my ears going numb or actually the music's fault but I don't give enough crap to go and listen again to make sure.

Awesome, loads of memories around this one. First saw the video to Remind Me early in the morning at Rachel’s flat down in London. Sparks was part of my chill out AV set for Shinobi at Welly. And the album as a whole takes me back to Jodie’s house down Morpeth st. The album stands up well, maybe tails off a little at the end?

This album was hyped a lot around its release date. Great album overall but perhaps a bit too loungy for me and some of the vocal tracks are so so.. and perhaps not everyone will agree but: just listen to the Mandy remix of "Sparks" how much the album could have been further improved if they had upped the electro bits.

Remember when this hit in the pre streaming days and so was a bit harder to just give a listen without buying it. Listening to a few tracks in the CD shop didn't do it justice as I feel it needs a few solid sessions before it becomes ingrained. I didn't 'get it' back then but it has become a stable that I return to quite often nowadays. sits somewhere between a 3 and 4 for me listened to is on a plane just last week

I liked Eple when I first heard it. It’s one of my favourite songs to whistle. Fifty years ago, in an era when catchy instrumentals (like Hot Buttered Popcorn or Outta-Space) could become pop hits, I’m sure Eple would have made the charts. “So Easy” is interesting but they wear out the Burt Baccarat sample, though they elected to sample a version by a Swedish 60s pop-band, which probably saved them $$$. There are a number of well written tracks on the album and a couple are more forgettable rhythm or ambience based, typical of a lot of 90s downtempo. To quote one reviewer: “<Royksopp> combines the haunted atmospheres of Boards of Canada with the more traditional "song writing" sensibility of downbeat specialists like Groove Armada or Koop". With any musical genre, to me, it’s all about the song writing in the end. Boards of Canada got thumbs down from me due to a dearth of song writing, while I like the CDs I have by Groove Armada and Koop – and Royksopp.

I tend to find Röyksopp‘a music a bit of a hit or miss affair (including their very latest 2022 release). However, this one is definitely a hit, and Eple is one of those hits that transcend time.

This album has a pretty eclectic mix of sounds and styles. There’s some experimental stuff and also some more pop-friendly (even clubby) jams (like “Poor Leno”). Some are in between like “Eple,” which has those weird little off-key notes in its hook. There’s also some chill, blippy-bloopy electronica (like “Remind Me,” “A Higher Place,” and the spacey “In Space”) and even some jazzy numbers (“She’s So”). This is an album worth listening to closely but it can also slip into the background for hangouts, smoking, studying, or writing. There’s a newer electronic artist I like called Caribou that a lot of these songs remind me of. No question Caribou counts Röyksopp as an influence. Cool to hear that connection! Also “Sparks” sounds like Portishead! Highlights: “So Easy,” “Eple,” “Poor Leno”

A brilliant opening 1-2, both of which take me back to the 'chillout' trend of the early noughties, as the whole album does. It drops off significantly after that - not bad (with the exception of Poor Leno, which sounded dumb at the time, and now sounds dated and dumb) but not GOAT standard by any stretch. Nice enough, and with a clear love of Philly Soul and such.

This is such a fine exemple of trip-hop and chill-out electronic music, and it leaves no doubt that Röyksopp is one of the major artists in those genre. The experimentations make this album unique, but it also feels that there are so much space for then to grow (and they did). "Eple" is so catchy and stays in your head for days.

This one puzzles me. On the one hand...it's nice. Nice. On the other.... I'm not sure I'd ever want to actively listen to this...? It's great background music. Is that worthy of a top-1001? It's all subjective of course but I can't ever see myself having enough interest in something that's manufactured like this (not necessarily a critique) to voluntarily think "I need this album and nothing else for the next 45 minutes." Atmospheric, uber-mellow, again: it's nice and truthfully after a few songs I was really liking it but afterwards it suffers a ton from just being itself. Repeated loops and beats that have a nice melody and effect still just don't hold up over and over. I have a hard time rating it and will give it a nice 3; would listen again, wouldn't necessarily remember anything from it other than the mood. Maybe that's the point... 5/10 3 stars.

I often complain about Burt Baccarat songs but the first song will be an exception. I guess I just don't dig the songs that are played the way he intended them to be played. The album has its highlights but lacks consistency.  Both times I played it I really like the songs that the Spotify algo played after this album finished. This album is really good for segue purposes but that's a backhanded compliment rather than a reason for +1.

Began strongly with the first two songs, it feels unfair to say it went downhill from this point as the rest of the album isn't bad - but peaking this early meant the remaining songs felt jarringly average. It's good at what it does. Certainly atmospheric, and definitely of it's time. 3/5 is maybe harsh, but there's a lot of albums on this list.

Ahhh damn it. Another repeat. Can't remember if I gave it a three or a four... It got a three. Don't actually mind this today - new The Smile (Radiohead) and Kendrick albums to be getting on with! Here's a copy-paste of what I said; A brilliant opening 1-2, both of which take me back to the 'chillout' trend of the early noughties, as the whole album does. It drops off significantly after that - not bad (with the exception of Poor Leno, which sounded dumb at the time, and now sounds dated and dumb) but not GOAT standard by any stretch.

Some cool lofi type hip hop type of music. I dig it. This came out in 2001- was this some early inspiration to the lofi hip hop beat youtube genre? I dig it. There should probably be a lofi hip hop sort of album on this list and this one is pretty dynamic. It has some upbeat tracks (Poor Leno), some vocals (Remind Me), some that sound like videogame music (In Space), and overall it was a nice listen!

The first two tracks established a lovely, trippy, lounge feel, but the remainder faded into obscurity for me. I’ll give it an upvote of a star as they did ‘Alpha Male’ a few years ago, and that track KICKS.

I sometimes like this style of music -- ambient, video-game background music (no, they didn't make this album for video games; just my description) -- and this has some nice tracks on it. I have a feeling when it came out 20 years ago, it was a bit more of a standout. These days, this kind of music is, I think, fairly widespread? Probably. Anyway, overall, I liked this album.

I wanted this to be chill background music. And there were definitely hints of really good chill electronica. But there was too much... I'm just gonna say "weirdness." Just when they find a nice groove, there's a radical shift or a new jarring sound mixed in. Ah, finally got to "Remind Me" after 8+ minutes of "Royksopp's Night Out" - I recognize this one! And it totally sticks out on the album. It's good, not great, but the vocals are different from anything else on "Melody A.M." This is nowhere close to reaching the trip-hop heights of Portishead or Massive Attack. Those songs flow, whereas Royksopp just feels disjointed.

Czesto gesto elektronike wylewa z listy, tym razem w jakze ambitnym gatunku trip hopowym, wiec lajtowe bity raczej downtempo oparte na brzmieniu synthow sprytnie wykorzystanych do tworzenia muzyki bedacej woda na mlyny tworcow reklam z wczesnych lat 2k, melody a.m jest debiutanckim krazkiem norweskiego duetu röyksopp, na 46 minutach eksperymentow mozna doszukac sie dwoch glownych nurtow, muzyki reklamowo windowej jak eple, przypadek ze song zostal wykorzstany przez apple podczas instalki macowego OSa, in space, czy otwierajacego so easy, ta strona plyty jest jeszcze calkiem sluchalna, bo przypomina mi troche lofikowe beaty przez takie drumowanie i eksperymenty z synthami, miejscami przypominajca troche to co slyszalem juz na plycie of boards of canada wczesniej na liscie, no ale jest i druga czesc, o wiele bardziej popowo wokalna, kawalki o niczym, spiewane przez nijaki wokal pana Øye na trakach poor leno i remind me, kolejnym glosem juz troche bardziej pasujacym do atmosfery plyty jest pani Drecker, ktora ma swoja partie na sparks, ale albumow slucha sie jako calosci i tak tez ocenia, a tutaj momenty w ktorych czlowiek musi otworzyc oczy, bo cos nie brzmi dobrze pojawiaja sie wraz z wokalnymi kawalkami, moze tez nie o same wokale chodzi, bo na meskich spiewanych trakach beaty sa zdecydowanie szybsze, na pleje dodam sparks, ktory jak dla mnie najlepiej reprezentuje style zawarte na tym krazku

Доброе утро! Прослушивание 1: 1 Тут будет текст, нет? Но ритм мне понравился 2 Вау, неплохо, какие звуки классные. Я так понял мы имеем дело с альбомом без солиста. Мне такое не очень нравится, но ради интереса послушаю. 3 Лол, это отличная песня для лифта. 4 А это позоже на музыку будильника. 5 Ого! они умеют петь?! А....(матерное слово). Песня мне нравится, прикольно. Добавил. 6 Неееееет, они разучились долго петь, теперь они поют только 2 слова :( 7 УРА! УРА! ТРЕК НА 8 МИНУТ, УРА! 8 Это мне на динамик что-то попало, или это норм звук?) И они снова научились петь, а....(матерное слово). 9 Очень страный трек, не понятно какую эмоцию испытывать. 10 Идеальная музыка для игры 3 в ряд хехехе))). Ладно, только первая часть подходит. Вообще пенси отличный саундрек для чего либо, я бы позвал их в свой фильм работать над мелодиями. Шутки шутками, а на самом деле альбом интересный. Поставлю его чуть позже на фон, и посмотрю как оно. Прослушивание2: блин, отличная музыка для фона. сказать больше нечего. Сидишь такой, а потом тиу тиу, пиупиу, тиу тиу хахахахахаха Выводы, итоги: Такое музло- не моё. Оно меня повеселило, подняло настроение, но оценку я поставлю ниже среднего- 2/5

Same review as all albums in this genre, it’s not bad but for me it’s just background music..

Not very catchy or easy to pick up initially. Electronic isn't my favorite genre but I'm always willing to give it a chance. Not a fan of this album.

Röyksopp are like a commercial version of Boards of Canada, who I dislike so they don’t have too much going for them. Mindless, cold, detached and incredibly boring electronica.

Melody A.M. by Röyksopp (2001) If you want to hear an old Burt Bacharach/Hal David song (made famous by Paul Anka) covered by a Swedish vocal ensemble and sampled into a synth dance track by this Norwegian electronic music duo, then listen to the opening cut on Melody A.M. Then you should seriously lower your expectations. This record is primarily suited for video game and/or advertisement soundtrack, manufactured on expensive electronic toys. It’s a lot better than some other music in the genre, such as american dream by LCD Soundsystem (2017), but that’s not saying much. Lead vocal by guest artist Anneli Drecker on “Sparks” is quite listenable, however her lyrics, which hover around feelings of being “wounded, sulky, and alone”, don’t make for a concordant musical mood. There are some dreamy sonic settings, and intriguing jazz harmonic and percussive inventions, but several tracks are spoiled by much too much gimmickry, with artificial noise in the highs, excessive phase shifting and channel-to-channel wobbling. And most of these compositions are heading nowhere. It seems as though the majority of the tracks just give up on any notion of development, and simply stop. Listen to this in the background while you work, but don’t hope for an increase in productivity. 2/5

This album sounds like it belongs in a Jon Bois video - and not in a good way. Outside of a few moments, this album really wasn’t fun or exciting.

Not spectacular, but not offensive. Yeah, I think not offensive is the best I can offer.

This is the music you'd hear at a department store or something. Great if you suffer from insomnia. 4/10.

Me caga esta banda, me caga su sonido. Desde que salieron. Más de 20 años de odio. Muzak glorificada. Es música inofensiva though. Para poner de fondo en un restaurant.
