High energy positive driving music!
Many of the tracks here are in the borderland between melodic rock, funk and dance. "Palm Freak" and "The Hustler" send a nod to the classic "Outrun" music, "Trippin' High" stays firmly in Drum'n Bass land and tracks like "Turbo Grid" is just all-out rock with no stops pulled and features the awesome Marc Pattison on guest guitar. Then there is "Play Dirty" which is a butt twisting 70's style funk rock track.
Reviews for "Accelerator":
Wow, after a long (much too long) time (when was the release of 'Revive'?) again a new CD in my beloved (no, I'm not paid for that) Dr.Awesome-style. Yeah, this music really rocks! Easy listening with the special hi-energy-feeling, never boring, and the more you listen, the more you understand...More, Bjorn, please more!!! - Volker Buckow, Germany
Well, being a prog-rock fanatic when I read the description above I didn't think this CD could have interested me. How wrong I was - this album is fantastic, fast, full of energy... Don't think of it as a simple, "commercial-sounding" production. If you are a more "cerebral" listener like me, you'll be happy to know that there's an inner complexity in these tracks that you'll notice only if you listen carefully: under the "easy" dress there's always that "progressive" feeling typical of that great computer music of the 90's, lots of different themes continuously developing and changing... Bjorn is a master! And while you listen you can really *feel* the sheer fun and passion Bjorn had while putting the album together. Honestly I can't think of a better recommendation. - Bruno Del Frate, Italy
It's crazy but it's true - a person could listen to nothing but Bjorn's music and still be considered to have unusually broad tastes! This album of fast, dancey, hard-driving barnstormers has almost nothing in common with most of the music released under Bjorn Lynne's 'real' name - except for the obvious fact that it's brilliant, original stuff that just grows and grows and grows on you. If you had to define where the sound of this album fits in the Lynne discography, you could say it's "Divinorum goes on his Summer Holidays with his favourite driving music". The energy in these tracks is something else, but it never comes at the expense of great chords, melodies or atmosphere. 'Palm Freak' and 'The Hustler' in particular have killer riffs that Jimmy Page would give his eye teeth for, while 'Trippin' HIgh' sounds like Future Sound of London after many cups of strong coffee. If you're a 'standard' lynnemusic fan it may take you a while to get into these tracks - but get into them you will, and you will NEVER ESCAPE! Bwa ha ha ha ha ha.... - Nick Green, UK
