It's alternately really cheesy and totally neat-o seeing said address incorporated into the song's brooding bombast, though, if, like me, you grew up somewhere pretty small-town-ish, you might get the message that there's not enough data to create the experience from your technical childhood address and you have to go with something more recent. (There's even a feature that asks you to speak to that childhood directly, and I could fool around with the tree-branch procedural drawing tool all day.) Still, it was just as amusing seeing my current locale spun 'round in dramatic complicity with the anti-sprawl. (More info on how it's done here.) Again, it's a bit cheesy — when watching the video someone remarked that 14-year-olds would eat it up — but it reinvigorates the medium, to be sure. Worth the time-waste.
