The eeriness and the atmosphere of the video leave a lot of unanswered questions, which is a good thing. We’re so used to having a short story all tied up neatly within 3 minutes, but not everything has to be so resolved. Think of the song as a soundtrack rather than a literal depiction of the lyrics. I love it.
It gets better and better with each listen. There’s so much nuance and texture, it’s pure auditory pleasure.
i think of each album as a birth- the gestation period, waiting, wondering, hoping… this is going to be one helluva a beautiful baby.
