5.0 out of 5 stars For an IMPORT, it's all that is good with Belgium, 24 Sept. 2005
This review is from: Pocket Revolution (Audio CD)
Being a dEUS fan in the US is difficult. The distribution of music is scarce. releases do not linger long past their release date. and having discovered this band just a year before this review, finding music from this band was a chore. A single copy of Pocket Revolution was found in a "megastore" and was rushed to a CD player.
It is everything dEUS was in the past, yet more refined than ever. The energy is saved for certain songs and it shines through like sunlight breaking through storm clouds. The instrumentation is solid, though it would have been interesting to hear more of Janzoons' violin on certain songs. This only leads the listener craving more, wondering how live performances would sound. The addition of auxilary musicians for every song on the album brings out a more lush sound than the quintet playing alone. extra percussion, wurlitzer, extra strings, backing vocals and spoken word "parlando" versus add so much to the music. Tom Wouters' vibraphone on Nothing Really Ends is pure bliss.
Lyrically, it's beautiful prose by Barman. Highlights included the title song, Bad Timing, Sun Ra and Nothing Really Ends. While it certainly feels different from previous albums, for what it's worth it's nothing short of brilliant. If going into the music you expect nothing, you receive everything.
one day I hope to see this band play. i'm counting on that.
