This video is intensely beautiful. It uses the sounds of Dayvan Cowboy to enhance the emotional impact of the video in exactly the right ways. For example, the bit just after the protagonist is finished falling through the clouds, we see the vast, open, free sky with the perfect musical accompaniment of the guitar notes. After that, the cymbal rush during the protagonist's fun/free surfing gives me shivers I have never gotten from any other video. It's sort of hard to describe what I mean here directly with words, considering emotion is not equal to English. The best way to find out what I mean would be to try watching the video for yourself.

Although this track is one of BoC best I don't think the video is all that great. It's just a mix up and edit of other videos, including the record setting sky dive done by NASA. Not sure exactly what BoC was trying to do with this video because I know they could have done better. This is pretty much for BoC collectors I'd say since it's just a short DVD. For the hardcore fan only.
