I think you are playing this too fast for your technical abilities. The scale in the middle part lost it's tension and sounded, well, hilarious. the whole piece was too fast, sacrificing legato on the melody and proper phrasing and "singing" of the lines. It was a great effort though, maybe next time play something that suites your technique level.
Just my opinion. I don't think it's right that when one forum member says bravo, everybody else follows.
I agree that empty platitudes don't achieve much (and may even be morally suspect). However, this criticism of yours is very typical of those who hear music on the classical guitar (and there are many who suffer in this way) as a kind of gymnastics in which only the physical and technical aspects are of any importance.
Cyrloud's performance here has what is known as emotion, soul, feeling, passion...
In any case, technically I think he is very well able to cope with this piece. The scale passage you're talking about might not sound like Paco de Lucia but it is pretty good. If we're just talking technique here, what about his tremolo...
