Mouth, eyes, head, and lipsynch well done, the hands and arm movements also great. I'm seeing a problem in the lower chest area, some weird folding and squashing. It seems unnatural to me. Also I notice his feet never move. Maybe just a slight tapping of the foot on a couple occaisons would help?

At first glance I'd say it's too pose to pose, staccato. But, there's something fascinating about the animation style. It's almost too stylized,in my opinion, to even comment on, other than model and deformation critiques like the above poster.
It does read, though, very well. Lipsynch looks good and the energy is there to match the audio.
I saw the other animations on your site and think they're equally enthralling.
my 2 cents,..
