Sorry, I'm really going to have to disagree with the other reviews here (the 1st appears professionally written).
I'd bought Lindstrom's 1st album based on reviews, like the other reviewer states too few ideas stretched over 55m - would have made a great 3 track EP at about 1/2 the length. Caught Lindstrom DJing at the Big Chill a couple of years ago and was impressed. Decided to give him a 2nd chance, really wished I hadn't bothered though.
I can just about remember 1 'song' after 1/2 a dozen listens. Some songs start with random bits of vocals cut up re-pitched and generally messed with - if you like the idea of listening to somebody sounding like they're just trying out Ableton Live it's great. Even the more conventional songs are pretty forgettable, too often descending into aimless riffing. According to the initial review they worked independently, certainly sounds like it, often seems little connection between vocals and the rest.
Certainly has an 80's vibe but most of this has been done before, and better. Maybe I've just really left the 80's behind, hence my major dislike. Definitely the worst £11 I've spent this year.
