Hmmm . . .
First off, the SONG! Aish, that truly lives up to the title. It's absolutely incredible. It moves, it builds, it plays with rhythm and counterpoint and harmonic relationships, it flows over a solid and complicated beat. The synths all interact beautifully and Quincy's feature fits in nicely. It's a beautiful song, fantastic to rock out to and it will always leave you breathless . . .
But the MV . . . I'm not a fan. The styling is weird in a way I'm not fond of. Xiah can pull off anything, he's really so gorgeous that it's unfair to try to judge how he looks because even dressed like some sort of soccer-player from an 80's cartoon he looks fabulous. But I'm not too keen on the others in the video, they just feel . . . off to me. And the choreography just feels so . . . American. That's the closest I can come to describing it. The moves play with the words, but aren't really connected, the lines are all sexy but not really intriguing or unique. Honestly I think it's most comparable to something like an old exercise video. The whole MV was too . . . flashy, I suppose you could call it. The over-abundance of cuts wasn't made thematically excusable, there was no real reason for most of them, and there was no real pattern to them. It was all just "look here, look there" with no spark to make us want to look where we were being told to . . .
The song itself rocks. I LOVE it. I'd give that a 9 easy, but since this is an MV review . . . the song only counts for a small portion of the results, and as it is . . . the MV just isn't doing it for me.
