Flow doesn't work.

The piano is fine, but after a while I realized it will be the same repetitive arpeggios. And the drums are really weird as far as keeping a beat for the song. The guitar overpowers the other sounds and is also in a different scale of the song, so it clashes on the ears. I think if you had instead kept the guitar but added a more upbeat bass and piano in the same scale, and have a light mellow but with beat drum, it would work well. 3 looks harsh, but it's my opinion personally. Constructive ciritisism, not so attack your music.

First of all, as I normally say, thanks for the low score. Not offended.

Now to address the the things you've said -
The piano was a bit repetitive, I'll admit, but besides the 24 hour limit on this, it kind of hard for me to practice on FL since I only have the demo version. Trying to find Cubase, but to no avail.

The drums are on a reggae beat, which is a bit weird for people who don't normally listen to reggae, like me. But I've tried to make them interesting and unique, not just 1-2-3-4. It's not sitting exactly on the bars or beats, but if you listen carefully (also to some reggae), you'll see how it fits. For me it works, at least :P The piano doesn't have a special rhythm, it's just 1-and, 2-and... So i've decided to give it the offbeat reggae sound as well.

The guitar overpowering everything - It's because I'm an egotistical bastard who likes to show off that I can play the guitar. Can't help it. But the guitar is in the exact scales - trust me on that. It's just that there's a scale change, to B Dorian > Bb Dorian > B Dorian > D Dorian (F Lydian, which is that diminished scale for the chord played). To me it sound great, but most people find it annoying, I've discovered.
