Tracking and Leading

I found this online at a site called, which features magazines. This magazine immediately caught my eye as the type was set so tight. The tracking and leading are both uncomfortably tight. It is extremely distracting to me, especially in the second to last shot of circuits. The i and s which overlap seem to have a white outline. I think it would work in second and third example, as it flows a little better, almost as a connecting element, but still is a little hard for the eye to see. While I think the intentions were good to try something new and different, it is not my style of type design.
