Praise for “The Lotus Eaters” Video:

“My Old Kentucky Blog is abnormally proud to premiere the absolutely stunning video for “The Lotus Eaters,” one of several haunting numbers from Penelope that taunts me for merely saying that it defies description.”

“Clocking in at over seven minutes, Sarah Kirkland Snider ‘s “The Lotus Eaters” isn’t so much a music video as it is an epic undertaking… magnificent.”

“It’s an excellent visual account of the album itself, recreating the feelings of loss and dysphoria as Worden works her way through wind-whipped fields, ivy-covered ruins, and a makeshift infirmary under a vast expanse of sunless sky.”

“This is just the kind of thing we like to see at Synesthesia: a serious musician–in this case a composer–collaborating with fellow artists to achieve an intriguing interdisciplinary result. In my mind, this is reminiscent of the giant strides The Metropolitan Opera is making with its “Live in HD” series–essentially, making serious music more accessible to the masses by utilizing the modern mediums of video and the internet.”
