For your first trance...
...Well, wow, it's really good! This song sounds like it's been done by a guy who's been doing trance all his life XD. Good job, man :). By the way, I didn't HELP you with the name... I INVENTED it for you :P. You may want to fix that :P.
So, onto the melodies. They're quite unique. I liked the intro melody very much, it had a nice hook it. 0:41 was a very good piano solo (heh, reminds me of Blackhole12's alternate melody in his song Aurora Theory), and the part at 1:41 was really well done. The part at 2:41 was a nice addition, but I'd suggest that the notes continue going up in pitch for those few seconds, giving a better climax, since you made the notes go up, then down, and then up, when I think it'd be better if those bars had notes getting higher and higher, until finally the effect plays and the climax ends. One thing that I didn't like with the melodies though was that they were VERY generic. That chord progression (heard most clearly at 1:08) is really overused, especially here on NG, and it's a bit of a bummer hearing it in a song as awesome as this. Also, the part at 2:37 was pretty generic too. Just find a chord progression that's nice but isn't overused ;). By the way, something that's bothering me a little is the tempo. Maybe +5 or so BPM would be a little better :).
As for the instruments, they're nothing too special, but you told me that you downloaded WAV files for the instruments, and, well, you'd have better quality instruments by getting a VST such as Nexus, Vanguard (lol, overused XD), maybe z3ta+ too. Still, instrument choice was OK; I liked your warp synth, and the piano sample was fine, although I think those saw waves don't sound too good. The song needs more bass too (or if there was bass, then definitely turn it up, like, a LOT), but background depth wasn't bad.
Also, a little issue I'm having with the instruments. For some really weird reason (could be my poor excuses for speakers) I'm hearing a lot of the instruments having some sort of static/distortion. Not too sure why. I can hear it mostly in the piano solo at 1:42, so what I'm saying is, if you have a flanger on that piano sample, I'd really suggest that you take it away. Anyway, whatever. Good use of effects, especially that effect at 1:26, and I really liked the cheering at the beginning. Nice use of the reverse cymbal as well, and I'd like to compliment your panning, but since I'm deaf from one ear I have no sense of panning :(.
I can't complain about the transitions - they were all done very well. The effects like the reverse cymbals made some nice transitions too. I just think that 2:44 was a little anti-climatic. I mean, after hearing that effect and the embellishment before it, I expected the drums and all of the synths and piano to play together in a grand finale, so maybe you could try and fix that. I liked the buildup at the beginning, and new instruments were introduced very well.
The song is very well structured which made the song even more enjoyable. You introduced quite a few new melodies but never made the song sound random, so great job! Variety was nice too; I just think that maybe some melodies were dragged out a little too long, especially the second piano solo, but other than that, nice job! Intro was really, really good, loved the cymbals and kicks in the background, plus the cheering and the buildup just made it even better. Ending was abrupt and weird though, it's like that ending melody came out of nowhere. End the song with the chorus along with all the instruments playing together - maybe that'd sound better :).
I can't comment much on the drums since I'm running out of space... Anyway, just saying that the drums were good, if not slightly repetitive and they could've been louder at times too, but the beats and samples were great!
For a first trance song it's excellent, which is why I gave you a 10/10. Just fix the problems mentioned above and it'd be perfect! Sorry for the sudden ending; they should really increase the review character limit.
