    The result is some of the loosest, most facinating music of their career. [Apr 2008, p.92]
  2. Do It is simply a case of Clinic once again doing what they do best; but with a new-found vigour that rediscovers the confident swagger of earlier releases while building upon realms explored on later excursions.
  3. Do It! finds Clinic getting curiouser and curiouser, but that's the direction that suits them best.
  4. If you pardon our French, Clinic’s fifth album is pretty fucked up--and yet it's also their best effort to date.
  5. 60
    On their fifth album, they crack the window, slow the motor (except on 'Shopping Bag,' a jazz-punk binge and purge) and take side trips into primeval glades where runic rites are conducted on acoustic guitars.
  6. Do It! is a mediocre album, and further cements Clinic’s status as a retro novelty band.
  7. Do It! is the first Clinic record that seems assembled from bits of old Clinic records, its personality the result of combined ideas rather than new ones.

    It's already my favorite album of the year! The best since Walking With Thee!
