DEATH IN JUNE/Douglas P. in his most experimental phase. Operation Hummingbird" is by far the most powerful recording of DEATH IN JUNE. And the collaboration with Albin Julius added a vast classical element. In comparison, "Take Care and Control" seems only to be the warm-up for "Operation Hummingbird". While most DIJ-albums are fine and silent recordings for quiet moments, this needs to be played LOUD. It was clear that this would not.

Operation Hummingbird is a great album that is so divergent from Death in June's normal style. The musical score is richer and the synth/sample fusion that Albin Julius whipped up makes these tracks seem like club tunes rather than DIJ. While the lyrics are far more simple and less contemplative or introverted than normal DIJ albums, it does not detract from its greatness. Two years prior to the release of this album at a DIJ show I witnessed Douglass Pierce stop a scuffle in the bathroom at Man Ray in Boston and he exclaimed "I just want to make groovy music man!".

For Operation Hummingbird, Death in June frontman Douglas P. programmed seven dense, dirge-like tracks with heavily orchestrated samples and only occasional concessions to a beat. Led by chanting vocals, "The Snows of the Enemy (Little Black Baby)" and "Let a Wind Catch a Rainbow on Fire" are eerily reminiscent of Britain's pre-Christian past.
