I'm liking it. :)

Though Dave at 1:35 - 1:38 made me laugh in the wrong way. Slow motion from the middle of a held note = fail.

mmm... i've mixed feelings about it.

i like it aesthetically. simple and vivid. At the same time, i find the idea quite close to what that lad did with the 4mn mile video. showing precisely on video what the lyrics say. Plus, having such an explicit video, i find it makes it too simple. there's an element of "just in case some might not understand the lyrics". A bit documentary-ish. anyway. always good to have a new bellx1 video to share on fb. :)

Which brings this to my mind.

I dislike it... again. So much more they could have done. Especially with that song. Oh well.

Hmm, would agree with that alright. I thought it started well but then some of the imagery gets a bit too literal. Also the third screen of the quote at the end goes by too fast. :o

The video is all shot very nice and cleanly, it looks well. But I kinda wish it had showed them performing in real-time, seeing slow motion shots out of time with the music always jars a little.

I still like it though.
