DAMN. This really should have been the first single if for no other reason than the fact that this feels like a progression from the Got Me Goin video. I think that it also would have drummed up some interesting in their album (not that they deserve it, Forever In A Day is so pedestrian and such a trend-jockin piece of shit).
It almost makes me like the song. Almost.
That said, it’s nice to see Day26 recover some of that swag, man. The video concept is minimalist and edited extremely well and definitely elevates the song to the level it needs to (given its melodrama).
Though Brian, despite being easily the most charismatic video performer in the group, is inconsistent as hell. He is so watchable on his verse, but from that point on he looks like he gonna pop a blood vessel hard as he singin.
It’s also interesting to see that though Mike and Robert are easily the best singers in the group, they are terrible to watch in videos (Robert – do you even play guitar, homie. Give the kids back their hairstyle dude, it’s not working). They sound amazing though, if too good for a song that is built around production wizardry, not the melody (which, come on, is barely there).
Que and Will — so pretty — are so devoid of personality that they literally blend into the background. They look like digital creations. Fellas, emote. Come on, it makes you cool. Ironically, they are prettier than the
needless, pointless, obligatory window-dressing girls, which should NEVER happen if you’re a boy band. Probably would have been smarter to not have had any women in the video since they don’t do anything and aren’t Melyssa Ford-fine enough to grab the attention from Will’s cheekbones.
Lastly, are they all groovin on a different beat?
