ARE YOU SERIOUS? Shadow of the Day is a boring as hell video. Let's just have Chester croon for 4 and a half minutes. Great idea. LOATR is boring as well. Floating in space, pushing knobs, playing space chess, laughing. Crap. I don't get the hate for the ATS videos. MTM was shit. Numb was shit. /end rant Actually, no. hahaa. Let's end the myth here. LP's old videos weren't that great. One Step Closer: Green haze, floating ninjas, upside down Chester "shut up when I'm talking to you" Enough said about that. No story, no real concept. Crawling: Cool CGI for the time but a cliche story. In The End: No story, floating whale, CGI, cool band shots, hard to see a real concept here. POA: Live compilation, boring. Papercut: What's with the couch? No Rob drumming even. This one acts on the paranoia theme and is maybe the best of the HT videos because of it. SIB: Dream world of Chester's while he floats onto his bed in his postmodern le chic bedroom (the fuck?). Elephants. People with hoods letting Mike preach to them about being hollow and alone and the fault is surely his own. No story really. Faint: Cool visuals, simple, you can't even see the band in the video! (Back in 2003, fans hated this video because you couldn't "c t3h b4nd!" Trust me, I was there. This video has always been a great one. Joseph Hahn did not direct this one. Mark Romanek did. See "Can't Stop" by RHCP. Numb: Crawling with no CGI. Boring. From The Inside: the first time they did a riot sequence, it was cool. Prague: Thumbs up. Hardly could be called a "story." But what is with the boy with the milk? BTH: Cool concept, cliche story lines for people who hate on LP to leach onto. A lot of people hated this when it was released. WID: Stock footage. Been done before. No story line. Boring band performance. Chester trying to be Bono. BIO: Bar fight? Really? No story. Given Up: Live compilation. Always a snoozer. See POA. SOTD: Let's do another riot sequence but show less of the actual riot and show more Chester! Because this is a one man show for MTM! Hardly a story, blech. It was hard to not throw up in my mouth when I saw this one. The one time I made it through the whole thing. LOATR: See what I wrote above. This video is pointless. New Divide: Transformers is an instant fail. So it's no surprise the video is as well. What exactly are people wanting to see a return to the "glory days" of LP music videos for? LP's music videos have never been about a story. Sure, they've had some minimal "stories" I suppose, but it has always been about visuals.
