There's an interesting mixture of (at first listen) apparently incompatible elements on here. There is the reference to industrial, some lounge-like e-piano, the Gabriel-esque drum rhythm, and the funky guitar. It all seems to hang together. I think the mix sounds a little bolder and more in-your-face than some of your earlier tracks. That works well too.

Good work :)

Cool track. It's not at all what I was expecting from the "industrial" label. Maybe more of a chill-out sub-genre of industrial. And like seismic1 already said, there's a bunch of other elements in there, too. But it all works together well for me. I also like the vaguely dissonant pad sound at the end - I almost feel like it could have emphasized a bit more in the outro.

thanks for the feedback Gents. Very meaningful to me to hear your comments.
Both of you mention the difficulty I had putting a "label" on this piece (or any of my pieces for that matter). If anyone has a better description of my work, I'm all ears. 8)
David, I made an adjustment to that outro pad per your recco. Nice
