What dya think?…
Well, instead of me answering this question (for now, anyway) why don’t all of you answer it? What dya all think of Escaping Gravity? Good, bad, different? Best album from Nell, worst album?
Here is the album and the “Ocean of Light” MV to help form your opinion.

As for “Ocean of Light”‘s MV, I like the aesthetics; it plays off the vibrancy of the song. But in context of how ridiculously wonderful their MV for “The Day Before” was, it’s kind of a let down. “The Day Before” is one of the best MVs I’ve ever seen. Period. The synergy between the music and visuals was spot on, and the meticulous attention to detail unparalleled. You can find so many articles that hold a magnifying glass to the MV, pulling apart each reference, each message, that’s sown in. Here are just a few:
As great as these opinions are, why don’t you try forming one for yourself as well? It’s well worth it. Trust me.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=km4D0wkmaPM]
As always, comment, and let me know what you think of Escaping Gravity, your opinions on “Ocean of Light” and “The Day Before” MVs, and if you like the direction that Nell is going.
