Well good gawd, what Epileptic seizure inducing director put that together.

Dude, anything compared to THAT is going to look good. Yes, the Zep editing is not nearly as quick as the Kiss, but IMO, it is still way to fast to get invested in. And what I mean is that you lose connection with the performance and the musicians. I think for some reason, these folks are equating quick edit visual with the beat of the song, or the energy on the stage. But who watches a concert like that? Movies quick edit to tell a story. A concert is one continuous flow with the spot light on individuals at any one time. My eyes are not dancing around the stage every second.

Take a look at this recent concert footage of Chris Rea. Notice the flow. Notice how the camera holds onto Rea and the musicians and you get a sense of connection... of being there. This is an example of what I expect when watching a concert.
