    In plain but very powerful terms, it's one of the smartest albums ever released. [No. 111, p.61]

    On Why Do the Heathen Rage?, Daniel has managed to bring the intellectual and the primal together for one big dance party.

    Rage is, by turns, ridiculous, overly-serious, and self-satisfying. It’s also one helluva EDM record and an intelligent send-up of an otherwise difficult-to-work-with (and work in) music genre.

    The striking concept alone is enough to make this album worth a listen. That it turned out to be so inspiring is a happy byproduct of the whole experiment.

    The most radical makeovers highlight how great some of these songs are.

    Initial listens may suggest contrived incongruity. Further spins reveal the affectionate smarts behind these acts of desecration. [Jul 2014, p.87]
