dEUS 'Vantage Point' is the sixth album of what may be the best known and acclaimed band Belgium ever produced. dEUS released the successor of the less convincing 'Pocket Revolution' this month and made it probably one of their best albums. The band makes songs Dylan could have written if he was younger, Nick Cave if he was less dark or Amanda Palmer if she was more intelligent, and still is the only Belgian band that plays in the Champions League of international music. 'When She Comes Down' and 'Oh Your God', the first two tracks of the album, immediately set the tone, and although not every song reaches the same etherical height, the album as a whole is one of the best that will be released this year. Listen to 'Favourite Game' and 'Smokers Reflect', visit their website (www.deus.be) and one of their concerts, and don't forget that Belgium produces more than chocolate and beer. // Nick Delafontaine
