Jun 12, 2014As inspired, awful, and awesome as their debut, the only bummer about Donker Mag is that H.P. Lovecraft, H.R. Geiger, and H.R. Pufnstuf didn't live long enough to hear it.
Jun 12, 2014Their music is about 40 per cent less exciting shorn from the lurid splatter of their videos, but music in 2014 is a more interesting place for their presence.
Jun 12, 2014Despite the occasional dud, [Donker Mag] is filled with provocative, compelling, out-there productions and boasts a real confidence in its creative vision.
Jun 12, 2014Donker Mag is unashamedly synthetic in its make-up--a carefully constructed affectation of hooks, melodies and outlandish braggadocio.
Sep 17, 2014As refreshing and legitimately good as the second half of Donker Mag is, it’s still not a great album overall. It’s peppered with weak lines, horrid skits, and moments of misogyny so objectionable that you can’t hit skip fast enough.
Jul 17, 2014Without new tricks, Die Antwoord risk coming across as no more than a panoply of gimmicky voices.
Jun 13, 2014Die Antwoord’s bombastic concerts and larger than life stage personas are not to be missed. However, this wild energy and devil may care attitude yield weaker dividends after being bottled and pasteurized in a studio that appears staffed by a cadre of rejected Saturday Night Live sketch writers.

Love their tracks, love their vids, love this style. Yo-landi is a bomb. Die Antwoord has fresh vibes and its great to hear something new form hi-tek after listening to copy paste **** uninspired "PRO" djs like Calvin Harris, David Guetta or Tiesto. Theyre something like PRODIGY in their prime days. I didnt had this much fun when listening to music for a way to long time...… Expand

They made some other good songs yes, but they just don't seem capable of making a good album.
The second half of the album is quite good, but quite good is still far from great, and the first half... well, 15min after listening for the second time I already forgot the songs and tunes so...
All-in-all yet another album with some catchy songs accompanied by stuff just there to fill the album,
mind you, combine the best hits of all three albums into one and you've got something nice.… Expand
Nov 9, 2014Die Antwoord do have a tendency to break up the flow of their albums with stupid skits and annoying sections even within songs, and that isDie Antwoord do have a tendency to break up the flow of their albums with stupid skits and annoying sections even within songs, and that is increasingly apparent here. The only real highlight is a heavily reworked cover of Pitbull Terrier by Emir Kustirica. Other tracks increasingly fall flat; I Don't Dwank has a good second half, but a poor first half and therefore is still fairly unlistenable. Songs like Sex are just plain dull, which is one thing I never thought I'd say about Die Antwoord, regardless of whether I like the track or not. There are still a few tracks keeping this album afloat, but with over 50% of the tracks being either poor or pointless skits, one feels they might have been better off just releasing the better tracks as an EP… Expand

When it comes to music Die Antwoord's lyrics are inexpressible also the music videos that they do is unwholesome, they expressed their "South Africa" culture in a wrong prospective. All they do is get attention and get reactions from others, they have no respect for the industry. Their album "Donker Mag" is not enjoy able to hear.… Expand
