Once upon a time, R.E.M. was a band known for making some visually arresting and thought-provoking videos — and their new video for the song "Hollow Man" shows that Michael Stipe and co. still know what they're doing.
The song, from their new album Accelerate, is a downtempo melody that surges into a toe-tapper pretty quickly. The video's images are chopped and spliced together, and it looks like a mix between an old video game and a broken TV set. The bright color scheme is something I'd bet Kanye West would envy. It's a little dizzying, but I think I'm digging it.
