Review : In a bar, under the sea.
Original in dutch
dEUS makes the kind of records that you immediately think of 'But listen and judge for yourself' as final sentence of your review. Personnally I can make as much positive as negative remarks with each track from the second album of the Antwerp rock-pride. They don't care for the unwritten rules, they implant annoying bits in their songs, they recut lyrics and compositions in a deconstructive way : an se it deserves all credit. The only thing I miss is the carrying-away, penetrating magic that made Sonic Youth one of the Big Experimentals in the eighties. Just like the dEUS-debut Worst Case Scenario, this record hangs loose with good findings, exciting moments and catchy atmospheres, while you search in vain for real catchy tunes ; But … listen and judge for yourself.
