Let's see you put that on the same album as some of your rock stuff!
You seem to have dropped into the IDM bag pretty easily and seem to have a pretty sure grip on the controls. It's easy to get things 'wrong' jumping genre tracks, and leave yourself looking like a stylistic platypus, so this can be appreciated for all the stuff it gets right and perhaps not taken to task for being a step or two back from the fashion-forward edge. And how would you rather go down in History... trendy or timeless?
Taken along with the lyrics, I think you've managed to get something that works together nicely. There's very much the feel of one of those goggle-eyed pop star paeans to the guru of the moment that were the rage back when I was in college. [cue sitar gliss]
But I think it can rise above that interpretation, as well, to work on a level where the irony might get a little more rareified and the yearning for transcendence less easy to laugh off...
