    'Fell of the floor, man' meets 'Fool for love' by Das Pop.

    Not all too convinced, but then, I think WWTA was one of PR's less interesting moments, and they made that a single, so... a sign of good things to come, certainly ;-)

    dEUSness aspects aside, it is a cool song. Ridiculously catchy, the kind of synth melody that goes straight to your head and won't leave... I can see myself whistling that one absent-mindedly.

    What the f*ck!

    If this is supposed to be the new dEUS-sound, the old one definitely died...

    anonymous: PR had "new" sound like Nightshopping & WWTA, but also "old" dEUS sounds like Sun Ra, Bad Timing, 7 days 7 weeks... wait & see, this is just one song out of a dozen.

    If you wanna hear the whole song: http://internetradio.vrt.be/radiospeler/v2_prod/wmp.html?qsbrand=41&qsODfile=/internetradio_master/productiesysteem2/programma_od/41_41gros.xml

    ...and skip to 1:41!

    it's great! it's Tom's Gorillaz tune!

    ... at least, we can't say it reminds us of some older tunes...

    I honestly don't know what to think of it yet... Sounded to me like a Prince-LCD Soundsystem duet produced by Soulwax... Or was it a Soulwax cover by Prince remixed by LCD?... I'm lost. But it's not necessarily a bad feeling ...

    I like the start and the fucking guitar and the perfection and tom's distorted parlando and I really dig the bridge (but I frown my eyebrows at the "a brand"-like yelling by the band)

    Is there really no please else to listen the song? The player won't work properly on my mac. And the quality isn't that good either. (based on the snippet)

    the snippet is available on http://deuspodcast.blogspot.com too

    must say that killer riff reminds me more of TC Matic than of A Brand's mediocrity ..

    the demo version of the architect had a break which sounded like The Rapture (the 'people don't dance no more' part in Whoo Allright Yeah Uh Uh). too bad it didn't make the album version.

  19. it's a cool song. it made me clean my windows! (this is something I do every five years or so)

  20. Jyves says:

    To Anonymous (the one with the demo version): sounds great - what about uploading that somewhere? :-)

    To Bart: "it's a great song" or "what a terrible song" ??? As someone once said: "You're either with us or against us" ...

    Not MY dEUS anymore... :( They sound like a catchy English pop band now, they should change their name to "The dEUSes"
