Robyn - Indestructible


"I'm gonna love you like I've never been hurt before"

Hmmm... what do we think about this? When Robyn unveiled the radio version of the previously acoustic Hang With Me earlier this summer, I was completely enchanted. It became the definitive version of the song, and one of her best singles to date. I'm not as sure about this one. In its "original" form, Indestructible was an achingly gorgeous, string-laden ballad of the highest order. This new version, while certainly an interesting choice of sound, hasn't immediately hit me as strong as I hoped it would. The spare, house-influenced beat seems to strip some of the grandeur that existed in the original. But I really hate to cement my opinion in stone this early, because I feel I may like this better with subsequent listens. Mostly, I'm curious what Robyn fans think.

It really sounds like it was meant to be up tempo from the start. I like it better than "Hang With Me", but it's not quite "Dancing On My Own".
