Hrmpf. Well, I see where you're coming from. For a club track, I would 
definitely have to at least reduce the lead. But without, it doesn't 
have the feel I wanted. While working on it, I often asked myself if 
there's a nice kind of tension or if it just bites, though.

I'm not willing to remove the lead. But I added an archive with all 
Om patches, the MusE and JAMin files and a MIDI export, so anyone 
can work with it (all cc-by-sa). Requires recent Om CVS, though.
It's all open source, baby! ;)
