Chicago-based Deas Vail have waited a while for this album to see the light of day, but now it is here it is well worth the wait. With classically trained vocals, multiple synth lines, a grungy guitar and a rock solid rhythm section the band pump out complex but very listenable rock. While the lyrics are not always overtly spiritual - they are sometimes just plain cryptic - they are intelligent and delivered with some beautiful melodies. The songs are all well crafted and produced and they never grate or try to hard. All in all an excellent debut album and a sign of a great things to come.
