Electronic Pop is not really my cup of tea, so I was a bit skeptical about listening to the third album of duo “My Name Is Music”. True to my expectations the first sounds of “Super Acceleration” are way too electronic for my taste and somehow remind me of the 80ies. But what is this? With “My Favourite Drug” the album suddenly starts rocking and I like the lyrics right away. They sing about real life that is not a computer game (“Computer Game”), about how perception can change everything (“This Is Your Life”) and about the dishonesty in the media (“Judas”).

The instrumentation turns out much more interesting than it appeared to be at first sight or rather first listen and overall the music offers a lot of variety, taking bits and pieces from all types of electro and pop music. Since Phoebe Hall and Niki Altmann both sing, it does not get boring. I personally like the ballad “Three Steps Behind” best, but all the other tracks are worth listening to as well. An album full of surprises.
