    Simon Reynolds commence par une numration des symptômes de la rtromania trs russie muses sur le rock organisations de festivals aux line ups ultra rtro reprise de styles anciens par des groupes actuels etc Qu'il tend l'histoire de la musique il montre alors que la rtromania a galement exist dans le pass l'histoire du rock est seme de rptitions par exemple Puis il s'attache donner quelques volutions possibles de cette rtromania dans le futurC'est convaincant mais un peu dcevant car Reynolds a du mal dpasser le descriptif Les raisons profondes de la rtromania ne sont abordes qu'au fil des numrations de symptômes Quant l'analyse en elle même elle me paraît un peu pessimiste
