    The lyrics are thoughtful and reminiscent. The vocals are both beautiful and at times intense. The guitar playing is exemplary. The video matches the song perfectly with stunning imagery and content.

    Can we all agree this is not one of the best songs/video's ever?
    (no Youtube video available)

    Wait, are we all agreeing it is not one of the best, or is the OP suggesting that we should all be able to agree that it is one of the best?

    I'm not a King's X fan, so I agree with the OP.

    I agree with your main original British-laced question, but dispute your premises.

    I'm agreeing to disagree that this is not one of the best songs and videos ever, in light of the fact that it both is and is not. It is and isn't great. Yes and no. Left, right. Up, down.

    I will say most completely undoubtably yes.





    (What I'm trying to say it is one of my favorite tunes of all time.)

    I'm a complete stranger to Kings X, but I didn't like the phrasing of the singer. Seems like a well made song otherwise.

    Great song, awful video. Then again, all music videos IMO are terrible. Always so forced and awkward.
