Lindstrom has outdone himself.. An awesome nod to the 80’s music that is so ever-present in this decade 30 years removed from the original source. As a producer he obviously pays attention to other producers’ work. From Malcolm McLaren (RIP) and Quincy Jones to Jimmy Jam/Terry Lewis and Trevor Horn (and even some Vince Clarke/Gareth Jones type stuff too), Lindstrom lets his 80s flag fly and lets Christabelle (who goes by Solale on a previous collab with the L-man) pick up the female vocal end of things. She has no problem evoking many of the hot chanteuse-y performances of some of the 80s greatest lead ladies. Subtle in its reverence (it never gets cheesy or pretentious and remains its own monster throughout), “Real Life Is No Cool” is so cool. Doesn’t matter how many times you say “Is not!”. - Corby
