"30 Seconds to Mars now sails more in the alternative rock sphere with some pompous and/or experimental elements at the whim of futuristic notes."

Founded in 1998, 30 Seconds to Mars is best known as the band of actor Jared Leto. And for the year of its 15th birthday - the ungrateful age as we usually say - the Californian trio is releasing its fourth album.

After the introductory anecdotic "Birth", here comes the second single of the album "Conquistador" which perfectly fulfils its purpose. An alternative rock track that lets us predict the best for the future. And it is indeed not far from the best that this suite has in store for us. Like "Conquistador", "Up The Air" despite its "obvious" choirs, is a real addictive alternative rock anthem!

Unfortunately, as the title of the album seems to indicate, after the love felt at the beginning, comes lust, faith and dream... If for the moment, 30 Seconds to Mars is very good to sell us dreams, to keep the faith, he is especially excellent from a marketing point of view. To let you know, the single was sent from Cape Canaveral to astronaut Tom Marshburn located in his International Space Station.

"LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS" is cruelly lacking inspiration in the image of the choirs on the same theme, so numerous and so "easy" that they end up becoming horrifying or even hilarious depending on the mood. Coming out of the two singles and Muse's "The Race", the tracks follow one another without anything really happening.

30 Seconds to Mars now sails more in the alternative rock sphere with some pompous and/or experimental elements at the whim of futuristic notes... A formation that is now more like a calibrated marketing product (as evidenced by the band's entry in 2011 in the Guinness Book of Records for the "This Is War" tour with the largest number of dates) than a musical approach of an inspired rock band as its promising debut suggested. A return to Earth becomes imperative!

Pour les influences citées par Corto1809, c'est une évidence mais cela devient dérangeant si l'on s'imagine que tout est orchestré-programmé dès le départ pour plaire aux tendances actuelles et là je rejoins la chronique initiale qui nous invective sur le manque cruel de spontanéité, sur tout le côté commercial qui me fait penser qu'au delà de certains titres accrocheurs, cette musique ne traversera pas les années et rejoindra le lot de morceaux "consommables" et périssables.
