How broadly beyond Racket would you say these complaints apply?

I don't feel the sexy' anymore.

That made me smile lol. 

So many languages and all tailored towards the original writers’ needs/ requirements.  I tend to stick with what’s quickest and easiest for me; which is obviously down to my experience and time invested learning the language and it’s foibles.

I envy your ability to sample each language and I enjoy your ‘reviews’; I just wouldn't’ have the patience lol. 

Is coding language exploring a hobby or are you looking for the ‘holy grail’ of languages?

:)
It thunk... therefore it is!

The parens thing is about s-expressions, and the mutability thing is about functional languages. But here I'm just talking about Racket, because there are other ways to use s-expressions, and other ways to handle immutability. Let's be fair: it's about Racket only.

Yeah, it's a real passion. I love esolangs for instance. I love creating syntaxes and semantics, usually with PEGjs and node/browser for fast prototyping. I'm not sure there's a holy-grail language. Who knows!

So, the syntax tree, in Racket, is abstract?

I mean to ask whether the Racket programming language is an AST (Abstract Syntax Tree)?

The Racket programming language is a programming language. Its syntax can be represented by an AST. Does it answer your question?
