I'm not so sure about this, to be honest.
I can see where you're coming from, but that might just be the problem - I feel you're making it too obvious that you're working against the "clarity rules", so to speak. It's mainly the distortion on the hi-hat that I feel is too much in-your-face-lo-fi. The drums are very loud in the mix too, and the combination for me goes just a little beyond acceptable experimentalism, tending toward insulting the listener, and I'm not exactly one to turn down some good old noise.
I do like the whole goofy synth idiom, and the melodies are very good. It would be awesome if you take some time to fugue-ishly build up some weird harmonies using several themes, once in a while resorting to chaotic atonality. Ideas like these are best executed with lots of virtuosity, which I know you're perfectly capable of.
Just my $0.02, of course. And I'll even fifify to counter the zero-voting it already seems to have endured. There's how much I love ya.
Oh and e-mail me about the CD swapping. My e-mail is now in my profile too.
thanks for your honesty, and for the review; I haven't exactly put much effort into this, and I guess it shows... I just kinda started out with the idea to use four different bass drums... *shrugs*
