About this album

The Ideal Crash is the third studio album by the Belgian rock band dEUS, released in March 1999. The album was recorded in Spain and it includes the single Instant Street, which became an underground hit in Europe. The album cover art is the first dEUS CD cover that does not feature a painting by ex-guitar player Rudy Trouvé.

The Ideal Crash was the first dEUS album to be directly released through a Major label (Island Records) but it’s also the only dEUS album that didn’t get a US release.

    dEUS, one of the best things ever happened to Belgium. The Ideal Crash, one of the best things ever happened to the music.

    The best dEUS album, in my opinion. While it doesn't have the uncontrolled energy of the previous albums anymore, it is not as smooth and dull as the later ones. Great sound, not one bad track. 'The Ideal Crash' is dEUS' magnum opus - it deserves a lot more attention.

    I weep for the unborn music that could have been made had 'this' band stayed together..........
