Really really good.
Id almost say it was perfect, if not for the section in the middle which sounded a bit fake. Lets start off from the intro. Brilliant, nothing more i can say, and the fact that it provided such a great climax into the main section, only helped to serve its cause. Melodies, superb throughout, even if there was a part in the middle that really didnt seem to fit in with the rest of the song. Instruments are also very high quality, with a really good use of all samples. Drums are really good and gave the music a directional flow. Then that fakish section came in, and i can honestly say that it put me off. Even if it was over quickly, that section ruined that bit for me. Still, you moved on to a great outro, which was also really original in itself with a nice use of pads and such. Overall, great job on almost everything. Nice work!

Note: This is your review from the NGADM Round 2 and as always im posting it here for your convenience.
One part bothered me, but it was still good!
Composition: The piano at the beginning is very nice, good melody you have going on there, then all of a sudden it built up into something of crazy awesome proportions. Sounds like you kept the same melody in that part as at the beginning. The parts after 1:30 the composition was fairly well done, despite the downsides to it (see below), then you hit the dubstep part, here I could tell that there was wobble in there, but I think that since you set that to a higher octave than the normal dubstep wobble pitch, it was kinda hard to tell it was there. Yeah there's not a single thing I can pinpoint that's out of place for the composition, well done!
Instrumentation: Can't complain, everything complemented everything else just fine... Up until the one part from 1:30 - 2:30 where the main seems kinda compressed and unsuiting for the part. Other than that, it's just really good.
Mastering: For a while during the first part, everything remained consistant, then around 1:52 it blared up, something about it just seemed very loud compared to the part before and past the 2:30 mark where you went dubstep style. Past that, it's fiarly consistant and suiting, just that one part that seems off from the rest.
There are parts that are really cool - really good. But the 'song' is all over the place. You have to make sure there is a consistent direction the music is going.
