I agree with your appreciation for that repetitive sound that provides the rhythm. I didn't even notice it until you mentioned it; but *sometimes* to me when you don't notice particular parts in a song, it means it's doing its job. ;) The only thing that bothered me was a really loud ringing frequency that occurred at the start and end of the song, I think it just needs to be turned down, it might just be me. I enjoyed this composition; nice and simple but subversive, and certainly evokes a feeling of a dark aimless time. Even though the instrument quality isn't super realistic, the songs *mood* really gives this realistic, gritty impression upon me.
