Tout le monde (et un peu n'importe qui) reprend Bob Dylan

par Jeff, le 25 novembre 2011

Tout le monde aimerait bien reprendre un jour un titre de Bob Dylan, et qui plus est pour la bonne cause. C'est certainement ce que ce sont dit les gens de chez Amnesty International au moment de mettre sur pied leur projet Chimes of Freedom. Et le tracklisting final comptant pas moins de 75 morceaux répartis sur quatre disques, on se dit aussi qu'ils n'ont pas dû avoir des masses de réponses négatives. Par contre, demander à des artistes couvrant un spectre musical aussi large que possible d'y aller de leur petite reprise, ce n'était peut-être pas leur meilleure idée. Parce qu'à l'arrivée, si on se réjouit de retrouver des gens comme My Morning Jacket, Band of Skulls, Raphael Saadiq, les Queens of the Stone Age ou Steve Earle, on se méfie comme de la peste des prestations annoncées de Ke$ha, Myley Cyrus, My Chemical Romance ou Maroon 5. On essayera bien de nous amadouer en avançant que les bénéfices seront reversés à Amnesty International, mais on vraiment dû mal à se dire que ce quadruple disque vaudra vraiment l'investissement. Verdict le 24 janvier.
