Adding further credence to the belief that Norway are fast becoming an important source for new ideas, Röyksopp serve up a fine debut which combines dance and chill-out. Using Bacharach/David samples has been done previously - most successfully in fact by Alpha - but 'So Easy's' use of 'Blue On Blue' is just as sublime as any ever heard. The electronic duo of Svein Berge and Torbjørn Brundtland deploy local boy and one half of Kings Of Convenience Erlend Øye who adds the right touch of nonchalance to the hypnotic 'Poor Leno' and 'Remind Me'. Yet even without outside assistance the tracks are subtle and relaxing but still able to rise above coffee bar atmosphere status, save perhaps the unwelcome funk diversion on 'Röyksopp's Night Out'. Comparable to the more chilled-out moments of the recently released King Of Woolworths long player, 'Melody A.M.' is another fine late night/early morning listen.
