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.
