The difference between the two isnít that spectacular as you can see. The Island version (which was internationally released version) hasnít got Let Go, but has got Great American Nude and Right as Rain, which were also on the zea single. Why the hell include these two tracks, but not include Zea is a mystery to me though. (Although [wwwcs3] mentions a version of WCS with zea on it, but Iíve never seen a copy of that) Why exactly Let go was dropped is equally strange.

Thereís no other way to put it, but this album solely put Belgium back on the map of the musical landscape. As an album, itís wonderful, inspired, thrilling. As a debut album, itís pure genius. Suds & soda should have sky-rocketed dEUS into international success, but the true commercial breakthrough didnít take place. Via and Hotellounge should have done the same, but strangely, they didnít either. Eitherway- if youíre reading this you probably already have a copy of WCS lying around, and donít need to be convinced. If you havenít- what are you waiting for? It doesnít get any better than this.
I prefer the version with let go on it, but the other oneís excellent too of course- and it has one track more.
