  1. As improbable as it sounds, imagine if Goldfrapp teamed up with Jamiroquai and you have a sense of what DOS sounds like -- seductive, ebullient, unabashedly retro, infectiously uptempo and wrapped up in the kind of maneater theatrics most pop music has shied away from since Shirley Bassey's "Goldfinger" heyday.
  2. 80
    As good at home as in the clubs, the Beings don't compromise integrity for catchiness, managing to offer healthy helpings of both. [Sep 2002, p.76]
  3. Divine Operating System has something for everyone (unless, of course, you have a rabid hatred of disco... then you might not dig it too much).
  4. 60
    Predominately shimmering and languid, at its raciest Divine Operating System achieves a poppy, disco canter that trades ass-slapping soul for sleek sensuality. [Sep 2002, p.104]
  5. 40
    You've heard it all before--at least twice. [#10, p.128]
