Hi Patrick.
In the spirit of bad press is better than no press, here's my feedback:
I put the song on and after a while felt an urge to sing. Given my less
than stellar reputation as singer I'm not sure whether it's a good sign.
Then I went grocery shopping, came back, and it felt like I hadn't
missed anything.

In other, more blunt and direct words, even highly repetitive is a
misnomer. To my ears it's just boring, unmusical and annoying.

Who am I to criticize? Anything I've done is hardly any better, but I
know that the music I am able to and like to create is not the kind of
music people would want to listen to, myself included. This is not
supposed to discourage you, it's just another point of view.
