Like the guy before me, reviewing as i listen...
Great slow intro, would go great to pump up the bass on an equilizer, the synth strings sound above average too. I really like the solo instrument and its melody, whatever it is. Ah-ha, I now here the techno in it. Boy, you are right, this is a long song. :P
Besides a little much repetition, I love the intro. Just heard the bass beat now, sounds great and solid, the drums sound...live?! Very cool indeed. It would be neat if a second, counter-melody would co.......oh, there it is. :)
Oooooo...i love the mellow strings you brought in, with the wavy sound. Good job with changing the melody, with a different instrument and slightly different notes. Also a nice soft ending.
Okay...now that it's over, it's time to get down to "business".
Melody= Great, but a little repetitive (i know i know, repetition is my pet peeve)
Beats= Awesome, drums sounded live
Background (melody)= nice and mellow, good sound
Variation= needs work, the melody did repeat itself throughout the whole song.
Other than that, great work! I'm glad to hear another song from you!

Reviewing as we go
Quite a long intro. I like the effects and sounds in the background. Great ambiance.
That synth changes the mood a little, I kind of like the melody.
Everything seems to be building up to something powerful very slowly.
Kind of died down into a subtle kick beat.
I'm sorry, but I'm not diggin the beat at 3:12. Seems too rock-ish/late 80's electropop.
The song doesn't seem to be really moving anywhere. The same repetitive synth melodies.
At the 5:00 mark now. It's slowing down to some pads. Very peaceful.
It's really long with the same thing going on through out the whole song.
It has a feeling of building up to something only to go to a slow calm.
I can tell you put forth a lot of effort into it. It sounds very well made, just a little boring for my tastes. I could picture this being played in a lounge bar or something.
Don't stop making music.
I thank you for the constructive criticism. The beat I do wish to improve upon and add some more complexity to, and if possible, find some new samples for. As they stand, they suit the song well enough I guess. I just didn't want to stick to the electronic kicks and snares, I like to have real percussion in my music.
I prefer making the slower, minimal, and repetitive lounge-to synths and accommodate them with powerful drums and such to give it a slight punch, but I also like to broaden my style a bit so my music appeals to more people. I'll definitely take into consideration what you have said and see what I can cook up next. Thanks again for the response.
