Happy one years old, Ruin of the Beast. You've done well.
You landed the Zune job, you were accepted into the Society of Illustrators, and you were featured on various websites.
On this day, one year ago, you were the sixty-seventh most linked to video on all of YouTube.
Seventh most linked to in music.
In other words:
The enigmatic intro pulses beautifully with the music drawing the viewer into, not only the scene, but the sense of tangible wonderment that the song creates. The journey then proceeds with a well-balanced mix of demonstration of the lyrics, conceptual imagery, static-but-striking screen shots, and innovative motion. This is animation taken to a new sophisticated primitivism that miraculously manages to escape the common sentence of "pretentiously unpretentious."
