Hans-Peter Lindstrom's latest work, Where You Go I Go Too, is one of this year's best records, and, for me, it's a perfect record. See, two days a week, I work out of town, and the drive takes 55 minutes, if not longer. I can play Where You Go I Go Too, and the record will get me psyched for the day, and by the time "The Long Way Home" fades out, I'm at work and ready to face the day. Lindstrom has a knack of making a beat that's minimalist without being monotonous. These three songs are long, deep dance numbers, but they ebb and flow in a way that is always compelling. At times modern-sounding, at times reminiscent of Giorgio Moroder's work with Donna Summer-- heck, at times I think of ABBA—these songs sink nicely into a groove that gets your adrenaline going without tiring you out. From what I've read, Lindstrom wanted to do that with these songs, and he's succeeded. A wonderful mood record, this.
