I like it. A solid track.
Although I had a chuckle at "criticise me hard." I did no such thing. I pointed out that you should be you, instead of what others want you to be. That's not a hard criticism, that's just a good life lesson in general. Look at me and my stuff, as an example. What would I be doing if I tried to do what others wanted me to be doing? The short answer is: not making anything at all :D .
My dark little corner of the music world isn't very popular and I'm ok with that. I make stuff I want to hear. If I find someone else that likes it and wants to hear it too, I'll be glad to share. If I don't, then I keep doing it anyway. My identity isn't defined by what other people have to say. Yours shouldn't be either. That's all.
You do you, whatever you is. If you ventured out into new things, and found it wasn't what you really wanted and you returned to something more comfortable and familiar? Cool. I think everyone experiments. Few people want to do the same thing all the time. It's normal.
If you're happy with what you're doing then that's what matters most. If so, you've got me beat. I keep listening to my stuff and thinking "I should have done this instead." or "I should revisit this." I find myself often unsatisfied. We all have our own fights.
I shy away from the word 'authentic' because it's been overused at times, but if it's your sound then embrace it. I like it when I can listen to something and it just has that 'authentic ______' sound. My stuff has a particular sound to it, so does Grinder's, and Phono's, and Lich's, and SlaughterClub's, etc. Develop yours.
I'll stop rambling now.
