As supportive as Hans-Peter Lindstrøm's fans have been of his random acts of creative fitfulness, one wouldn't blame them for feeling a bit tested by his most recent string of output. In a scene where an elongated 12-minute remix is par for the course, that's still hard going. Real Life Is No Cool isn't just.

Real Life Is No Cool is a 2010 album by Norwegian musician Hans-Peter Lindstrøm and Norwegian-Mauritian singer Christabelle. The Lindstrøm-produced album was released January 18, 2010 in the UK and in the United States the following day, on the Oslo-based Smalltown Supersound label.

Lindstrøm & Christabelle. Album Real Life Is No Cool. Do you gonna be there?

Lindstrøm releases all of his music on his own record label, "Feedelity". Lindstrøm has over the years produced and released a number of EPs, albums and remixes. He often collaborates with other artists, such as collaborations with fellow producer Prins Thomas and singer Christabelle. Lindstrøm also works on remixes, having remixed artists including LCD Soundsystem, Roxy Music, Franz Ferdinand, Glasser and Best Coast. He went on to receive the award for Where You Go I Go Too in 2008 and in 2010 he won the award with singer Christabelle for the album Real Life Is No Cool. In March 2012 Lindstrøm released his fourth solo album titled Six Cups of Rebel, which for the first time in his career contains his own vocals. On 5 November 2012 Lindstrøm released his third solo studio album, Smalhans.

The rest of the album can be is rather hit-or-miss. Lindstrøm and Christabelle never broach the precipice of Baby Don’t Stop. The cocaine thrust of the blaring faux-brass and piano break of Lovesick is close behind, as are the sleek strut of Music (In My Mind) and the uniquely synergetic tribal percussion and Cupid and Psyche 85 lite FM on Keep It Up, but there’s an overall failure to keep the energy tuned to a fever pitch.

Real Life Is No Cool. The Norwegian maestro of disco, Hans-Peter Lindstrøm, teams up again with Christabelle (also known as Solale), and together they craft a masterful 10-song pop album. 91. The result is an album that squeezes a lot of air and atmosphere into songs that take no more time to make their point than Nu Shooz’ I Can’t Wait. The Moroder-indebted tunes on Real Life are more pop-friendly, but the chopped-up vocal samples on opener "Looking for What" are guaranteed to meld minds, while airy centerpiece "Keep It Up" defies gravity via handclaps and delicately chiming bells.

Described by Lindstrøm as a collaboration sparked by a kind of "structured chaos," Christabelle improvised lyrics during their jam sessions. For a producer who high-watermarked with a three song, 55 minute slab of proggy Jarre/Göpired Autobahnisms, Real Life is notable for the precision of its appeals: ten tracks, most of them shorter than five minutes
