Review: ‘Riding Away’ is a 4 minute long non-interactive 360┬░music video about getting out of your room and getting away. While it is far from the best VR music video I have ever seen the soft glowing red visuals help you feel relaxed and engrossed in both the music and visuals. I will pick holes in the terrible transition at about the 3-minute mark, it goes into a train tunnel, then fades to somewhere else when all the rest of the video is smooth flowing. It was as if the visual team ran out of ideas then. But I digress, it is rather peaceful, 100% free and well worth a look. As with all the other VR music videos from this developer, you will need your VR legs as the camera does swing and move about quite a bit.
