j’ai pré-order TYRANNY digital et reçu le premier « Human sadness ce matin. J’ai beaucoup aimé. Au début c’est surprenant avec une musique superbe puis de temps en temps un son bizarre, une voix aiguê puis qui crie et enfin « trainarde » mais c’est au final que du bonheur. ça ne plaira pas à tout le monde mais à ceux qui aiment la musique originale et vrai. Merci Julian Casablancas et les Voidz. Du coup, j’ai aussi pré-order le CD en prévision du vinyl car de toute façon c’est toujours superbe les compos de casablancas et les musiciens (Alex, Jeff, Amir, Jake et Jeramy me donnent une bonne impression au travers des concerts que j’ai écouté sur YOUTUBE
