Massive Attack Video – “Splitting The Atom”

Following the Gorillaz-infested “Saturday Come Slow,” this chilly, claustrophobic Edouard Salier-directed video for the long-traveled “Splitting The Atom” clearly fits the track’s slinky atmosphere and up-close How The Grinch Stole Chrimas vocals. The mostly black and gray ballistics tour of a Sci Fi-torn city has some pretty moments, but isn’t as compelling as the The Devil In Miss Jones confessional created by Georgina Spelvin in “Paradise Circus.” That’s the difference between real blood and a 3-D videogame.
