This is by no means a perfect album. It has a lot of tracks that, quite frankly, aren't up to the caliber of the First, or even the Second Annual Report. Tracks tend to meander, going more or less nowhere. "Hometime" in particular seems to be kept in place more by the daisy-chained tape recordings than by Cosey's improvisation, and "Dead On Arrival" sees the band trying to make the best out of playing themselves into a corner. Of particular note is "Hit By A Rock;" everything but the rock-n-roll guitar comes off as ornamental, which makes the sitar-like drones and wailing vocals all the more grating.
However, the album has its high points, and boy, what high points they are! "I.B.M." kicks the album off perfectly, taking, of all things, an old data cassette and spinning an unsettling atmosphere from it. "Weeping" sees Genesis take his trademark violin playing slightly further from the edge of insanity, making his singsong voice and depressing lyrics all the more poignant. "Hamburger Lady" masterfully blends cold, mechanical electronics, detached, almost disembodied vocals, and unrelentingly gruesome lyrics to a bone-chilling effect. But by far, the crown jewel is "AB/7A," in which Chris Carter demonstrates not only his influences and how much he owes to them, but how far he's come and how far the band's come because of him. It's a downright marvelous track, with beauty at every turn.
Now on to the bonus tracks. "Five Knuckle Shuffle" is a decent, straightforward piece, building itself around a steady rhythm and lyrics dealing in such themes as teenage rebellion and drug abuse. "We Hate You (Little Girls)," however, is completely obnoxious. On the one hand, it's here one can see the link between Throbbing Gristle and bands like Whitehouse. On the other hand, the song is devoid of structure, rhyme or reason, with its two-minute length safe to consider an act of mercy.
When recommending albums to friends who want to get into the band, this one's pretty low on the list. That doesn't mean I don't make a point out of recommending it. True, it's nowheres near the best album the band's put out, but it certainly has some of the band's best tracks.

A mistake must be corrected sooner or later."D.O.A" is definitely a MASTERPIECE of industrial music.It mixes violence,romantism,love & desperation through unforgettable songs like "weeping" & "hamburger lady".This record becomes with time a partner through your whole life.Once you heard it,the words & music just can't be forgotten....I said it once & I say it again : a masterpiece

This album is the weakest of all TG-albums on Industrial. Sometimes even quite uninspired, only "Hit by a Rock", "Weeping" and especially "Hamburger Lady" are fully convincing. So, get the other three first.
