Virtue is the second studio album by American band the Voidz, released on March 30, 2018 through Cult and RCA. It is the band's first album after shortening their name from "Julian Casablancas + The Voidz".
Virtue’ is an easier listen – slightly. Not so much so that The Voidz lose their eccentric inventor touch, but just enough that there are a handful of pop-leaning moments present among the boundary-pushing ones. The frontman told Billboard recently they’d made the album more people-friendly because they want to be able to afford to keep doing – but if there was even the tiniest hint of cynicism at the root of the record, it doesn’t show. Opener ‘Leave It In My Dreams’ is the brightest, most straightforward song here.

Unfortunately the first vinyl of my copy was very wavy and sounded like streched tape. I've never experienced such thing.

Virtue (The Voidz album). Virtue is the second studio album by American band The Voidz – the first under their new name, after previously being known as Julian Casablacas+The Voidz. It is intended to be released on March 30, 2018 by Cult Records, via RCA Records. The album's first single, "Leave It In My Dreams", was released on January 23, 2018, followed by its second, "Qyurryus", the following da. .
Virtue is an instant classic bursting with diverse, new ideas that display all the creativity Julian's been trying record since First Impressions of Earth perfectly blended with the gorgeous melodies and brilliant solos that characterize his more popular work. The album cover accurately illustrates the sound they were going for here: distorted and colorful, yet dark, geometrical, yet amorphous. They manage to pull it off, given all of the different genres, and the flow of the album is great, with the exception of Think Before You Drink.
What’s most impressive about all this paint is that it never feels purposeless. The Voidz use these colors to create songs that are downright addictive; tunes that, even after having this album on almost constantly for the last week, I still feel as though there are things left to unpack here. This album never gets bogged down in its experimentation, but it never ceases to be forward-thinking or boundary-pushing. Virtue is a vibrant, eclectic album that straddles the lines between many a genre, while also being remarkably consistent on a song-to-song basis.
