Oh... my.... GOD
This is by far the best LEGO music film I ever saw!
The camerawork and lighting in this is really interesting and creative, I'm impressed. The animation also works very well, especially in the places where the characters and instruments float, which is sometimes tough to pull off. The flow from shot to shot was really well-done.
My main crit would be that the digital face animation mostly looked out of place.
Fantastic work NXT! Full marks across the board! I'd have to agree though that the only major flaw would be the face animation. That is however more than forgiven with the breathtaking animation and cinematography. Keep it up!
I have admire the amazing level of creativity that went into this, and how well you were able to execute it. I'm happy that you didn't attempt a "story" with this film as you sort of did with Viva La Vida, because, enjoyable as that film was, was definitely the weakest part of it. After all, music videos aren't bound by the same conventions of having a narrative through-line like other films, so you should be able to be more visually creative and daring.
The animation and camerawork are fantastic, I was particularly impressed with the smoothness of the minifigs and instruments during the zero-gravity sequences. I also have to echo Smeagol in saying that the flow of the film was very nice. If I had any gripes, apart from the digital face tending to stick out (in the future, I recommend playing with the blending mode and giving it a bit of a blur), and the frenetic camera movements sometimes made the light effects a bit difficult to watch.
But all of that to say, this is a pretty incredible achievement, and you should be very proud of this. You may have just solidified yourself as the best animator I currently know on YouTube.

It's one of the most impressive videos I've seen. The animation is fantastic, camera movements are incredibly well done, lighting is great. I agree the face looks a bit odd sometimes (and I've seen it going over a trumpet in a part of the film), however I would be too nitpicky if I said that it bothered me.
I've seen it five times and it still amazes me every time.
So many great special effects!
Really incredible! This is pure awesomeness...
Really all I can say is WOW. This is the most impressive technical display I've ever seen in brickfilming. I'm not even really sure what to say about it, other than I think the lack of story only allowed you to further show off you're animating skills, since that's the entire focus. I didn't even here the lyrics to the song because I was so astounded by the animation. The animation, lighting, camera movement, and sound sync on on a fully professional level; I honestly don't think the animators at Laika could animate a LEGO Minifigure better than this. It's just amazing, really.

Cried from Awesomeness
Never seen a better animated Brickfilm Ever... EVER.
I think I preferred this about a 100 times more then your last music video, Viva La Vida!
I'm amazed. Thank-you for making such a great Brickfilm to watch.
Not a fan of the song, but the animation was very well done, especially the part with
the people floating in the air.
Although the mouth animation didn't look very good. Overall, wonderful job.

Stunning video. The lighting, the animation, the editing, everything. The smoothness of the shots when the people are floating is wonderful. I ended up going back and looking closely at those shots and realized you used cleverly placed technic/bionicle arms in places. Great idea, I'll have to remember that.
4.9/5 - and it goes straight into my favorite's list.
That was seriously mindblowing.
I was drooling through the entire thing.
