The editing is a mess. Always on the wrong thing at the wrong time and too many cuts!

Yeah what a shame. WAY TOO MANY CUTS!!! MTV is to blame for this type of editing. A missed opportunity.

I hope the whole concert isn't edited like that, but it probably is. What a waste of great sound and footage.

Probably won't buy the DVD now that I've seen this mess. What a waste.

There is no way that an actual editor worked on this.
They're just putting what they broadcast live onto a DVD.

The music intensity that was captured that night is matched by a full throttle performance. Some of the footage shots are interesting however to many times the main camera angle or focus of attention fails to give the viewer a great view and wide shot capturing the whole band playing together. As said before, to many "old school" MTV music video quick shot changes end up taking away from a visually interesting performance.

the editing makes it almost entirely unwatchable. sad.

That blows. I mean, why just dump what they broadcast onto a DVD and call it anything new? These are the same edits as the YouTube boot version, which means no one has even touched this at all. I mean, I might be a little saddened if it was a bad edit by SOMEONE IN 2009 - but it's not even touched since 1992, it's just straight to transfer from the source mix. All of the potential innovations they could have done are out the window - like providing footage from all camera angles and allowing viewers to edit it themselves (make it more interactive, like Eno & Byrne's My Life In the Bush Of Ghosts), or even just tweaking the crazy editing - NOTHING. No brain was used in this project at all, just BIG BUCKS on the horizon. That figures. See kids, let me explain something to you: THIS IS PRECISELY WHAT KURT HATED ABOUT THE INDUSTRY, and here it is, in charge of him still. This isn't a shame, or sad, or a mess... it's just TYPICAL.

Don't usually comment on this kind of stuff, but I almost had a seizure watching this, and I don't even have epilepsy. Over A HUNDRED cuts in a two-and-a-half minute video? Really? The first 20 seconds, and the 15 or 20 in the middle where they're not switching shots and camera angles, are teasingly awesome, and the rest is just a freaking mess.
