CRITIC REVIEWS

76
Pitchfork

Smalhans is a reliably generous gesture from an artist that takes pleasure in indulging himself and his audience.

75
Beats Per Minute

Lindstrøm is a master at what he does and Smalhans is a rousing, straight-faced reminder of that.

70
Consequence of Sound

Smallhans is an electronic purist’s dream and reestablishes Lindstrøm as an innovative producer who is capable of powerful work.

70
FACT Magazine

Put simply, it’s possibly the straightest album Lindstrom has yet put his name to – a fact which works overwhelmingly in its favour.

70
No Ripcord

Smalhans won’t be the most memorable record of the year, but that’s partly because its great strength is its subtlety, which makes it constantly refreshing. 

60
PopMatters

This record has elements of disco, sincere emotion, lush synth atmospheres, and nods along from beginning to end without stopping for a breath. 

60
NME

Each of these six songs is named after a traditional Norwegian dish, and together they cook up a satisfying if unadventurous snack.

musicOMH

Smalhans is simply another disappointing album from a producer who once seemed poised to become one of the more significant of his generation.
