  1. There’s no question that Where You Go I Go Too is one of the year’s most coherent, craftily executed albums.
  2. Where You Go I Go Too takes the meaning of the term "full-length" quite literally, stretching his already epic electronic disco into works of effortless symphonic grandeur.
  3. Lindstrøm manages to achieve a palatable yet ambitious record without ever resorting to indulgence, not forgetting in his view of large forms to look closer and focus on the minutiae.
  4. Where You Go To I Go Too is one of the finest pieces of music I have heard in years.
  5. Easy review: three tracks, each between 10 and 29 minutes, every moment electric.
  6. Lindstrom knows all the right moves to give his own brand of spacey disco an air of transcendence, but the result feels so effortless that his facsimile and the "real thing" become indistinguishable--a fake so real it's beyond fake.
  7. Spaced-out and seriously hypnotic, Where You Go I Go Too is one of those releases that is custom-made for late summer evenings. It's not too loud, but at the same time has enough of a pulse to be a guide for steady movement.
  8. 80
    On his debut album, he shoots for the stratosphere and lavishly scores.
  9. You Go I Go Too is a triumph of sound design, as impeccably crafted as a Starck chair--and as geared to comfort, too.
  10. While Where You Go may not be his masterpiece, as a distillation of the space-disco aesthetic, it's unparalleled.
  11. When you consider that the first song is only a minute shy of half an hour long, this collection of epic ambient disco revisionism definitely counts as a full-fledged artistic statement.

    This cosmic suite evokes a steamy union between Vangelis and Santana, and is Lindstrom's strongest work by far. [Oct 2008, p.96]
  13. I can attest that despite initial misgivings, this does grow on you. [Sep 2008, p.64]
  14. Luckily, for most of its duration, Where You Go I Go Too manages to assimilate the more enjoyable elements of both of these alternate possibilities into a seamless and engaging whole, with only a few moments of awkward uncertainty.
  15. This album is a textbook grower, not just because it demands repeated listens, but also because the pieces all start similarly and take their sweet time to reveal the individually entrancing things they are.
  16. Underneath the optimistic veil of synths, though, it turns out Lindstrom’s got a cheeky, irreverent sense of humor.
  17. 70
    This one’s not as immediately accessible as "Affair," but still maintains Lindstrom’s position at the top of the electronic scene.
  18. Lindstrom has said that this is an album to listen to while traveling or taking long trips, and he ain't lying. [Fall 2008, p.89]
  19. For some, this and the album's unabashed opulence may prove too much to stomach. For others though, Lindstrom has created a sophisticated and lovingly crafted album that despite its dance driven pulse will resonate with music lovers of all persuasions.
  20. For all the promise held out by the idea of Lindstrom staring down long tracks with thematic aims, the range on display is surprisingly narrow. None of the narrowness is exactly bad, but the widescreen potential was so high.
