The procedure is not unusual: A label change shortly after the release of the last album (in this case it was on 11.11.11) almost inevitably leads to a re-release including bonus material. And so was "Dic. Nii.Lan.Daft.Erd.Ark", the eleventh album of the humorous Danes D-A-D, put into a new Digipak folding cover and upgraded with a second CD with a total of 16 bonus songs. Musically D-A-D presented themselves as vital as ever on this album, whose cryptic title turns out to be a wink in the direction of Disney, three years after "Monster Philosophy". "Last Time In Neverland", "I Want What Sheʼs Got" and "Drag Me To The Curb" turned out to be first class live rockers, but with "Breaking Them Heart By Heart", "We All Fall Down" and "Your Lips Are Sealed" thoughtful material was also put to the start. The bonus CD mentioned above contains not only acoustic tracks ("The Campfire Favorites") personally selected by the band, but also a live recording ("Home Alive"), which omits the great classics.
