What's up with bands getting all in to making old timey videos again? Didn't Marilyn Manson do that back in the day? Tori Amos? Whatever. Someone gothy was all about it. Either way, pretending you are in a silent movie is not a substitute for a concept, even in these straight-to-Youtube days. The Ruby Suns get a pass on the strength of the Science of Sleep-style closing sequence of a rickety airplane flying through the clouds, which perfectly captures the band's youthful joy.
