The video is the result of Muse’s on-going creative collaborations with Japanese director Tekken, who previously delivered eye-catching, flipbook-style animated videos for the band’s tracks “Follow Me” and “Exogenesis: Symphony Part 3 (Redemption)”.

If you haven't watched anything by animation director Tekken, you're missing out on some very interesting work, and watching one of his pieces will take only about as much time as reading this review. He's known for making distinct looking shorts set to music that convey strong emotion, and Aftermath is no exception.

In five minutes, Tekken tells the story of a solider missing home and dealing with the complex political climate of the unnamed war he's in.

Just personal scratch.
Advised, possible spoilers.
Opinion & Informal

Art: 5/10 Minimal. More like doodles some student could draw in class while they were bored. Seki from My Neighbor Seki could totally have done this.

Animation: 5/10 Choppy. Didn't fit into the storytelling like Follow Me did.

Plot: 5/10 Not really much of a plot. More of an inspirational piece. Didn't inspire me personally though.

Music: 6/10 Didn't like this song from MUSE as much as I did from Follow Me.

Overall: 5/10. It read more

This music video is not bad. It's pretty unique with the black and white style. For the gist of this short, it features people during a war, and then at the end, they all join together. The story is good for its short length, as I pretty much just explained the story, I won't bother explaining it again. The art isn't bad, black and white cartoony style. The song isn't bad either, not my cup of tea, but not bad. Very little character development in this short, though. It's one of the things this lacks the most. I actually did enjoy it a bit, overall, read more
