Ms. John Soda are Stefanie Böhm (Couch) and Micha Acher (The Notwist, Tied & Tickled Trio). While Talking is both the study and result of constant exchange between human beings and it deals with communication in numerous ways: conversations that work and sometimes don't, contradictions, misunderstandings and the incapacity to make oneself understood as well as to fully understand someone else. The opener presents itself almost defiantly. Compared to the debut, the song's calm sections appear more epic, whereas the expressive elements seem to be even more "in your face." The spectrum of Stefanie Böhm's and Micha Acher's musical influences is more varied than before. They use anything ranging from distorted punk bass to psychedelic twang sounds. "If Someone Would Know," for example, is reminiscent of cruising through a desert by night just like in a David Lynch film. "I Think It Could Work, Marilyn" reanimates Marilyn Monroe and Elvis taking a walk up in the mountains. Although Ms. John Soda's expression has become more varied, Stefanie Böhm's charismatic and beguiling voice remains the central element in all the songs. Their ability to transform the entire range of human emotions into musical expression is breathtaking.
