5.0 out of 5 stars dEUS who? (they should be) the soundtrack to your life, 5 Jun. 2003
This review is from: The Ideal Crash (Audio CD)
Put it this way - this could be the best c.d you ever buy.
Deus are (to my knowledge) largely ignored/unkown outside of europe (the british music press found out they weren't from here or america and that was the end of it) and its an amazing shame. to me their music isn't so far off the popular mainstream rock, just much better. the difference is that this belgium band are brave enough to experiment and to try new things, and on this album, to refine their sound. the melody has always been there on all the albums, and if you like weirder music then your better off starting with in a bar under the sea or my sister = my clock.
This album is deus do pop, and they do it brilliantly. its the most straightforward album they've done, beautifully bitter and literate lyrics and haunting tunes throughout. this album seems like a more deliberate attempt to get closer to commmercial viability and it does exactly that, taking their odd noises and eccentricities and moulding them into perfect accesible songs like 'instant street' and 'the magic hour'. there's even deus do dance on 'everybody's weird'.
This is my favourite album i've ever heard for what its worth and with a few listens it should come pretty high up on your list. To those who like this, their talent stretches to other great bands like zita swoon, magnus, moondog jr and kiss my jazz.
