ONE OF THE BEST I'VE EVER HEARD!
Great melody, great music, thanks.
Holy crap almighty! There are few tunes that have a truly professional polish to them, especially in the trance section, but you have succeeded where few have! While some of the other reviews complain about the length of the into, I think that what you really need to do is slap on a couple minutes of build up and a couple of breakdown, and release this as a full-blown uplifting anthem, man. Just absolutely wonderful listening, I would love a full version!

Awesome song. The mix is flawless and crystal clear. Chord progression is very uplifting and satisfying. The climax is good, but it felt like there was a lack of effort in the transition to your climax. One more thing, I would like to hear a bit more variation in your melody or perhaps you should add a counter melody. That's only a suggestion, you don't need to follow through it.
Good stuff though.
what can I say - this is probably my most favourite submission - I have listened to it over and over and over again at this point. For me personally it fulfilled all the criteria wonderfully..wonderful blissful pads.. a good strong feel.. the only thing that could go against you is the intro took up half your song - you really coulda reined that in a lot more.However the progressive noises and just the overwhelming heavenly dance feel is just wonderful. I do wish the main part of your song had been longer and more diverse. The piano in the bg was a very nice touch! Still I love it to death.. nice fade out too - so perfect score for you!
I loved the way the song started, with the strings hitting the right notes for the uplifting genre, but it dragged on for far too long considering the length of the song (4 minutes, 2 minute intro).
I kept waiting for that driving beat, which didn't come in until well into the halfway point of the song! :( After that nothing much changes, the same notes being repeated with fadein/out.
Quality is very nice, but the arrangement could have had a lot more variation to keep it fresh and exciting. However, you hit the nail on the head as far as requirements for the contest, more so than most, which was the point to begin with!
