I love the drums and the piano part. I think both should be mixed together to make an epic piece. But that's just my preference.

Hey! Don't wanna be harsh, the mid part was great, the piano saved you. But the rest doesn't sound that good at all. Why did you put that echo on drums? It really breaks the feeling. Also- your instruments are cut at the end, like it was some weird staccato (I'm not 100% sure what instrument is it around 1:00, it could be silent trumpets, horns, something another, but it is clearly poorly cut.).
I think you should stick to the piano, cuz even so you have so many paid (and pricey) proffessional addons, it sounds like you lack basic knowledge, which is a pity. Test and play around for a bit, definitely check other people's work (and I mean a lot of other songs) and you should be fine.

Forgive the sloppiness of the track, I will admit I pumped this out in a spur of inspiration and got burnt quickly.
I really appreciate the feedback also, I'm really trying to figure out and understand the mechanics through trial and error and I'll take any criticism where I can get it.

Wow this sounds amazing. Well done! Keep it up.
