FILM: Flashing Lights Music Video

So today i saw the new Kanye vid for the song 'Flashing Lights'. I been anticipating this video since I heard he was doing it, along with that he got Spike Jonze to direct it. But then I watched it....

Creatively I see where Kanye is trying to take the art of music videos. But as a fan I hated this vid. It could've been so much more. Where's the flickering lights? the neon lights? the glow in the dark performance shot? All the things I wanted and waited to see. I searched all over to see if there was an alternate cut, but nothing. This video just raised the bar for me as a director.

LIBERATION: ...Tell'em Save the Youth

I checked this video out on video static, I admit I like the way its shot with the fish-eye lense but is this what kids are really listening to?
