    dEUS manage to exhume an unbridled level of consistency throughout the nine pieces that comprise Keep You Close.

    Essentially, it's post rock without the waiting around - all the songs here are straight arrowed and straight-forward, but never predictable. [Oct 2011, p. 125]

    More cinematic, melodic, and mellow than their usual experimental indie pop output.
