Honestly, I think it's one of the most incredible things I've ever seen. The song's fucking awesome too.
That's strange. When I clicked on that, I didn't see Meshuggah playing air instruments to one of their own songs.
Are you sure you posted the correct link?
in my dad's voice
Body swapped again, huh?
We've been waiting a long time for the sequel but I'm glad it's finally here.
gave that 3/10
can u believe that!
It's fucking awesome.
come on man!
the video to 'Garbage' 'I think Im paranoid is the best video ever'
'No way no way' by Vanilla.
dont get fresh with me...
Too bored to keep watching.
and told them they had to change it.
the whole look of it was pretty interesting, but i really didnt like the song, and the video stopped seeming to go anywhere
I see what they've tried to and kind of admire the attempt ut it doesn't really work and gets dull long before the song starts.
It's commendable to try and do somethign original and innovative but, it's being different by just ignoring what it's supposed to be in the first place.
The best analogy I can think of is if two footballers tried to score a goal that had never been scored before and then Footballer A finds some incredible way to put the ball into a standard net in an entirely innovative manner while Footballer B gets a set of oddly-shaped goal posts taylor made so that when he scores in a part of the goal that never previously existed, he can say he was the first one to do it. I think it's fair to say Footballer A, who did something imaginative within an existing framework, had the harder job and has made the more admirable achievement.
I realise the above probably soudns like bullshit but I do know what I'm trying to say and that's that in trying to make an innovatie music video, they've actually failed to make a music video at all and made a (not especially good) short film with a song stuck in the middle.
The look and direction are pretty interesting. But there don't seem to be any ideas there to back it up.
That's the worst analogy...
Why not just say the song is shit and the video pretentious and just have done with it?
although I didnt' really make it as far as the song.
and im expecting this birthday party-y type band (just from the impression ive got about them) and im thinking its going to be a bit like Black Hole SUn, with the juxtaposition of creepy smily perfectness and dark-ish music, but when that horn synth comes in, its just horrid and turns into something like Country HOuse, but worse.
some of badly drawn boy's videos are really good....and others that spring to mind are the avalanches - since i met you, madonna - what it feels like for a girl (the best thing guy ritchies probably ever done), audiobullys - we dont care.....and I do like that mark ronson stop me video too...oh and anything by spike jonze
they sound like a party version of The Fall. The vocals are a straight MES rip off.
They aren't a bad band though, I quite enjoy them.
