Favorite non UK/US Album
dEUS- in a bar under the sea.(1996) 2013 and 2016 pic repress.
I had to choose Belgian band here, because we (as a Nation) have made some very interesting music, and dEUS had even had some international succes!
This is their best album I think. dEUS was a clash of 5 people good enough to lead a band. After this album some ‘personel’ left the band and made their own career. But here they all work and fight together to make something glorious and ambitious and beautifull and .. one of the best Belgian Albums ever made in my opinion!! Really worth a listen if you don’t know them! Art rock, such a shitty name, but it does fit the bill here..:-) #deus#inabarunderthesea#decembervinylchallenge#vinyl#vinylart#vinylcollector#vinylcollection#vinylporn#vinyljunkie
