CRITIC REVIEWS

100
DIY

So, ultimately, what is this collection of five tracks at just over 34 minutes long? Quite frankly, it’s a towering edifice of electronic brilliance.

91
Pretty Much Amazing

Do It Again remains impressive, if not extraordinary, from beginning to end. Röyksopp and Robyn for once sound like bandmates, rather than guest stars on one another’s solo work. 

90
Exclaim!

Röyksopp and Robyn have not only traversed new territory, they've made it their own.

85
The Line of Best Fit

Ultimately, they bolster each other on Do It Again. For the two artists, it’s not groundbreaking – it is a nice dollop of sideways expansion, revealing new areas that neither can quite achieve separately

83
Consequence of Sound

It’s a solid collection of five disparate songs, but don’t be surprised if you find yourself returning to “Do It Again” with the fervor of a dumped lover.

80
AllMusic

Fortunately, Do It Again is a much happier reunion of collaborators with perfectly matched strengths.

77
Pitchfork

Though technically an EP, the 35-minute Do It Again has the epic sweep of a proper album, with contemplative instrumental passages helping frame the more conventional songwriting.

musicOMH

Do It Again isn’t as downright amazing as it could have been, but there are far more pros than cons. 

70
Drowned in Sound

Do It Again is eccentric and ends too quickly, but those considerations pale next to the fact that within less than half an hour, Robyn and Röyksopp go from eyeing each other with genuine suspicion to sounding as if they’ve never been apart.

70
Spin

Joyously addictive mutual self-destruction is what "Do It Again" is all about. Just try to only play it once.

☆☆½ ~ I think this is a good/enjoyable album overall, but at the same time many passages are kinda irregular or simply boring.
