    As a DP obsessee I have to review it and say, basically it's Swing Lo Magellen but it deserves a 100% because it was still everything you could have asked for in a DP release. Okay!

    The arresting gorgeous title tune here destroys everything else, of course. But the rest have a loose, jammy feel that wouldn't have been tolerable in any phase of the DP's career other than the pop one. [No. 94, p.53]

    There's a tender simplicity to the group's work in the last year that's in stark contrast to earlier records such as Bitte Orca.

    About to Die offers a tight, effective encore for Magellan.
