I stood there with my mouth wide open as I was consumed by this epic depiction of apocalyptic destruction when the world nears its end. Meteor showers peppers buildings and scorch streets as families and friends are caught in a maelstrom of destructive carnage. Taylor is among many seeking refuge in a church which itself is on the brink of destruction. Amidst all of the chaos, people still find solace in each other’s company. Props go out to director Nayip Ramos for flawlessly mirroring the imagery to the music.
Taylor’s commanding voice is perfect as she hits notes in a variety of vocal ranges. Her velvet like sound is Soulful; featuring a Country drawl with an edgy Rock feel. The poignant lyrics are as descriptive and explosive as the accompanying visuals. The instrumentation is impeccable. Strings and percussion interact seamlessly as Taylor’s voice coats the rhythm like fresh candy paint on a vintage Oldsmobile. This Country/Rock mash-up is worthy of all of the accolades and attention that it draws.
Simply put, Judgment Day is a fantastic video to watch. You won’t be able to take your eyes away from the captivating images as they flash before your screen. So take a moment to experience the magic of this high-powered video. Press play and enjoy!
