I give this a ten! Very good work with the chimes and tambourines, added to the song very well.
I wonder what this would sound like with a gong in place of the bass drum?
And something else that I liked was the choir! It returns to your songs! Nothing gives a more dark feel to your songs than those angelic voices mixing in with the dark moody atmosphere of the rest of the song.
Speaking of the dark moody atmosphere, the horns you used in the end of the song could have really enhanced the beginning with a low mournful sounds to go with the violin.
The synths that you used for the start, maybe you could replace them for the trumpet? I think it would make an interesting sound, but then again, you used them to do the hopeful part of the song later on...
But these are your songs Not mine! And mentioning that, what are you using to make these? Could you link me to the site? Because I'm thinking about trying to it just for the hell of it.

P.S. Let me know if I'm getting annoying with my questions, my curious nature is unleashed in my reviews...
Not at all, your questions are not annoying, and I really like your engaging reviews, they represent the constructive observations any artist needs to improve. You have a point about the trumpet, but unfortunately I don't have trumpet synths that sound really good for a solo. I use FL Studio 5. I think the most recent version is 8, but honestly I never bothered to upgrade because I still haven't figured it all out yet and for my experience level it's just fine (plus I'm pretty nostalgic about this version since my high school beginnings in music). The orchestral instruments are mostly soundfonts which you can google for free downloads. Thank you for listening and reviewing.
Very airy, reminds me of a movie sound track. You are one dark bastard. That synth violin is super nice is that Korg? Good job. Is that sound that bounces around in the track phased or panned?
Thank you. No it's not Korg, it was some generic violin synth, but it worked well in short rounds. Now that you asked I can't rememer if I panned that sound or just enhanced the stereo. The mixer settings were from the older Walking in Shadows track.
