Biography

It doesn’t take a smart band to know that music is at its best when it connects with someone. It does however take a very smart band to be able to maintain that connection over the space of 20 years. Even a group like dEUS- with all their amassed musical intelligence, astuteness and ingenuity- can lose their grasp on that elementary principle. As he looks back at their last album ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! One of the best Albums of 2011. 15 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD
The career of dEUS can be split into two. The first being the experiment 90's with constantly changing line ups which led to three of the greatest albums of that decade (Worst Case Scenario, In a Bar under the Sea, and The Ideal Crash) . The second part of their career being in the 2000's after a 6 year break. Since their comeback album the line up has remained the same. Gone is the experimentation of their youth. However, they have produced two very good albums (Pocket Revolution and Vantage Point).

This latest release is their best since 'The Ideal Crash'. It is instantly likable, yet also a 'grower'. My favourite songs so far are 'Keep You Close', 'Dark Sets In', 'Ghosts', and 'Constant Now'. Rocky, catchy, inspiring and uplifting. I suspect dEUS will never quite reach the heights of their early work (Who could? The early albums are masterpieces). However, this is almost at that level and is definitely up there as one of the best albums of 2011. Great album. Buy it, you'll love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost as good as their best 4 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD
To my ears this isn't as good as their early dEUS, not quite as good but it is very close. To be honest the first couple of dEUS albums will always be favourites and it would be difficult for something new to knock them off that top spot.

It starts with the beautifully orchestrated title track which is as good as anything they've done. dEUS + Orchestra = shivers down spine levels of goodness! Through the single 'Constant now' and to the last track 'Easy' most of songs have a big sound which is in keeping with recent output - but probably better than Vantage point (and I like Vantage point alot!) Tom Barman's voice is as good as ever and just seems to get richer with time. There are a couple of tracks which start badly but in classic dEUS style recover to leave you happy - it wouldn't be a dEUS album if there weren't

Fact is if more people listened to dEUS, more poeple would love them. Buy it, listen to it, you'll love it - trust me.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK...just OK. 20 Nov 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After The Ideal Crash, dEUS seem to have been gradually in decline, which is such a shame, as they were once very inventive and different to other bands out there. Keep You Close seems to be continuing this trend - Tom Barman's voice is still sounding as great as ever, but the sparkle in the lyrics has gone and the music doesn't sound like dEUS (well, my idea of dEUS, who I have followed since the very beginning) any more.

Having said that, a lot of the new songs sound really good live, and dEUS are still the best live experience I've ever had, so perhaps some of the issues I have with the music are down to the production.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very mature record 4 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD
There are those who think their previous two albums 'Vantage point' and 'Pocket revolution' were not up to dEUS' high standards.
I am not one of them.
They were a logical evolution in the band's history.
And so is 'Keep you close'.
dEUS are always moving up a level and what if they've moved away from their arty-farty beginnings and have become a true classic? I say good for them!

This band definitely is a fine export product and deserve to be big.
Buy with confidence.
