Watchable but.....the timing of the cuts looked and felt totally wrong, they didn't flow with the rhythm of the song, the back shots looked out of focus, ie: not intentionally made to look soft focus just not in focus, a bit too much time spent on the TV effects between 3.20 and 3.52 - with a 'live performance it's the band we want to see, with a 'music video' the effects would have be fine, personally for the sections without words I'd have gone more for close ups of hands, faces, drum hits etc - just my opinion, I'm sure there'll be others!

given that it's a ballad, the hand held stuff is too wobbly. You'd get away with it if the number was more up tempo.
 
Using a tripod more is obvious, or a glider if you want movement. or tracks.
 
I knocked up a dolly system using a bit of ply, a £15 set of second hand roller blades and some alli plus some plastic pipe. You can do it for £50

or have a look at one of these :  http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B000KHRCCC/?tag=hydra0b-21&hvadid=10393439949&ref=asc_df_B000KHRCCC  inexpensive but they are lightweight which can be a disadvantage on some surfaces.              robo
