“Build a Rocket Boys!” is a deeply evocative album, and it works off the concept that the power of lyrics lies not in their meaning but in their relationship with backing music and the vague images and emotions they conjure. This is haunting music that, while indirect in meaning, is potent in effect.
“Super” is not a movie about a hero; it is rather about the impossibility of one. It illustrates what a superhero would really be like in the modern world and the harm to society that would result from someone stepping into such a role.
