as a <Bring the Drone> guy i liked the cut altho i think there IS too much 
goin on for it to be considered real Drone w/ a capital D.
in the words of James Plotkin, one great guitar/loop guy:
"a drone is a static sonic occurence, meaning a constant, unchanging event 
of sound. once  a sound shifts in tone, timbre,frequency, etc. it ceases 
to be a drone by definition."
he done said a mouthful, and if you can maintain those parameters true 
Drone can happen and transcend.(or bore you to death, whichever comes 
first :-)
