  • Summary: The Swedish garage rockers return with a sophomore LP.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 7 out of 9
  2. Negative: 0 out of 9
  1. This is going to be on a lot of year-end lists.
  2. DOLL may lack style, but it makes it up with substance.
  3. The songs emit an anxious energy with killer danceability. [14 May 2004, p.70]
  4. A progressive work with plenty to offer the open-minded. [Jun 2004, p.106]
  5. By combining American punk, British art-rock, and Swedish smarts to beef up their already muscular sound, they've not only developed a distinctive sonic personality on Das Not Compute, but they've developed a pose into a stance.
  6. Having eschewed the garage rock roots of their debut, DOLL have morphed into a temper-explodin', strop-throwin' antithese to their Swedish peers. [3 Jul 2004, p.65]
  7. Post-industrial punk with little to smile about. [Aug 2004, p.110]

    Though not up to the standard set on Black City, Das Not Compute is still an album not too be missed. DOLL is an incredibly consistent band, and it is hard to skip any of their songs. Expand

    Although I'd hoped prior to the release of this album for something even more feral than Black City, after hearing the album I enjoy it immensely. It is more ominous and less outright aggressive than previous DOLL albums - and obviously more polished - but the intent to draw blood is still there. I also think the album is the most even of their releases; there isn't a track on the disk that I skip through. Expand
