Horrible video editing makes it a long Music Video instead o

"I bought this after a friend sent me a clip of the Corrs performing somewhere. I loved the clip, and hoped to "get to know" the band better by getting this full-concert DVD.
Alas, the editing of the DVD video is the tired, way-overused format used for "music videos" on MTV. There were at least 5 or 6 cameras, and in the edited final product, no particular shot holds for more than about 3 or 4 seconds. As a result, this isn't a "concert", it's a long, long Music Video.
You're whiplashed back and forth between the back of the audience, super close-ups of various of the beautiful performers, close-ups of instruments, etc., with no chance at all to get any sense of intimacy or "presence". They also stir in a mess of extra video tricks such as shifting from color to black&white even during the same 3-second shot, going to slow-motion partway through a 4-second shot, and on and on.
The performers are beautiful, the musicianship is wonderful, the musical arrangements are upper-middle-of-the-road for the most part, the audio is great... but the video editing belongs to what some video editors call the "Look at me!! I'm Editing" school of MTV-influenced triteness."
