Essentially, with every album Die Antwoord become more Die Antwoord. Whether that's a good thing or not is up to the individual listener. Donker Mag turns up everything present in Ten$ion even further: the beats are fatter and more self-assured, Ninja is even more brutally narcissistic, violent and sexual; Yo-Landi, with the odd exception, is even more creepily childlike and, frankly, used even more as some kind of super-sexualised decoration. Mercifully, the focus this time is less on their occasionally cringe-inducing euro-rave and more on thumping hip-hop beats. Oddly, one of the few exceptions, the frankly uninspired and predictable "Pitbull Terrier", effectively serves as the album's lead single given the almost year-long wait for the album after "Cookie Thumper!".

Highlights include "Happy Go Sucky F***y", which removes Yo-Landi from her increasingly standard naked alien anime character role and places her in far more pleasingly aggressive territory, "Raging Zef Boner", a bouncy bassfest made for car stereos with a chorus taken straight from Eminem's playbook, and "Rat Trap 666", a searingly bitter blast featuring a welcome turn from Cypress Hill's DJ Muggs.

There are a couple of unexpected, and pleasant, surprises: "Strunk" is a fascinatingly emotionally complex and gentle ballad surrounded in a haze of gentle guitars and mandolin without a single rapped line. Similarly, "Moon Love" features a shockingly tender conversation between Ninja and daughter Sixteen segueing into glitchy big beat, before the album gently bids goodbye with the organ-lead title track.

Not for everyone - but for those who appreciate the gloriously id-driven and trashy territory that Die Antwoord increasingly stake out for their own, Donker Mag will be no disappointment.

The whole album is fun and feels a bit more like their previous projects to Die Antwoord. It is also a much smoother album compared to the first two (better recording studios, they are learning fast etc.).
My favorite tracks are: Ugly Boy, Zars, Girl I want 2 Eat U, Pitbull Terrier, Strunk, Rat Trap 666 (this track is out of control good), I Dont Dwank, Sex and Donker Mag. Moon Love is a remixed version of an older track (super sweet).
I highly recommend this album. Addictive.

I found Die Antwoord while watching Youtube, but I was watching Black Metal videos, not a rap/rave band from South Africa. Somehow in the German metal bands I was checking out, Die Antwoord was in the list and I just happened to check it out thinking it was something new for me. I couldn't have been any more right and wrong at all the same time. The only thing was I was totally blown away, seeing one of the sickest videos ever and hearing a song-Ugly Boy-that made me want to hear another. Read any of my reviews and see that I always preach "good music is good music" regardless of the style, genre, era or what ever. Die Antwoord are a clear example of a group that has an imagination and creativity that will take anyone from obscurity to the top of the world. Rap is just about the least of my favorite music, let alone rave but Die Antwoord have something that surpasses a simple label to something that will have you wanting to hear another song, another album and see another sick killer video. Ninja is great with a deranged sense of humor and Yo-landi Vi$$er is Killer Queen with a voice that is pure addiction. Their dj, DJ Hi-Tek has all the hooks and loops that success needs. You can't go wrong with Donker Mag or previous albums Ten$ion and $0$. There are just too many great songs on this album to list them, just listen and find your own. Anyone who knows me and hears me listening to Die Antwoord will probably wonder what the hell happened to me, but I will just call it luck!

If you like your novelty rave rap group to be freakish and humorous then you have come to the right place. I fell in love with The Answer when Tension came out and bought $0$ as well. With the new insane video for PitBull Terrior out I was thinking this would be reflective of that song. It is not at all. Production budget is bigger and it isnt a bad thing like some bands that sounded better lofi then hifi. This is a ninja heavy record so if you want more Yolandi and less Ninja get Tension as well as this one. Strunk is a really interesting song for them and is actually melodic and funny as usual. I am headed out tonight in Charlotte NC to see them live tonight. I am really excited to see the craziness in person and experience the zefness. If i rated the three records I would have to say Tension and Donker Mag are neck in neck at the line for me. I suggest buying all three and also trying to dress like them the best you can. I do love some Die Antwoord it is entertaining and danceable which is the lighthearted rediculousness I need in my mix. BTW Yolandi looks twelve sometimes but is 30 throwing that out there in case you feel strange.

I am a huge fan of Die Antwoord and this CD Slams....OMG!! I love it. I love all the songs but if I was to choose one favorite probably be Pitbull Terrier. All in all this is a awesome CD and totally recommend it!
