    He doesn't ever disappear too far up his backside, instead keeping an attentive ear on what his devotees might still want to hear.

    Six Cups is a busy, urgent and joyous trip that sidesteps categorization, a feat unto itself in field where new micro-genres are described every few months.

    You can practically hear Lindstrom reaching for his wizard hat and robes at times, but equally Six Hats is right on time, digging into similar disposable digitalisms to James Ferraro's Far Side Virtual, all without bursting that disco bubble. [Feb 2012, p.61]

    The outright space exploration of Lindstrøm's previous musical outings is sometimes lost here. His dancefloor is fun, but its been grounded this year.

    More color than meaning, but seductive enough to lure you in and keep you there.

    Points for trying something new, but it's hard to disagree with Lindstrøm's own assessment of the record as something of an experimental misfire.

    [A] superficial lack of organization and purpose.

    Hans-Peter Lindstrom widely known as simply Lindstrom has just released his second studio album. "Six Cups of Rebel" is seven-track, more than hour journey into the world of electronic sounds reminding old computers and various machines for playing like a "one-armed bandit." The whole shell has taken an experimental cosmic overtones, and that's a pity that in the album could hardly be distinguished only one song - "Hina" - and that, also with a certain reluctance. Expand
