David Knight - 6th July 2011

Its Call Of The Wild, as Michael Ragen captures the rather excellent Portugal. The Man's John Gourley on a Alaskan adventure, driving through the wilderness on a sled driven by huskies.

Gourley knows what he's doing. Like most of the band, he originally hails from Alaska - celebrated in spectacular panoramas in Michael Ragen's beautiful aerial shots (it was actually shot last December).

But then natural beauty give way to something much darker in a video spanning two songs - Sleep Forever and Got It All - and 13 minutes. A mighty video in every sense.
