Wow, you definitely have the heavenly part down!
I still feel the intro took a little bit too long (maybe by about 30 seconds), but once it got going it appeared to song pretty great. But you can already hear the problem with the mastering/EQing. Instruments get clouded so bad with others, the drums are meshed together with everything else, you can hardly hear seperation from the bass (as it gets meshed with the side-chain type instrument).
And the crashes sound really weird. Once the snares kick in, you can barely hear the hats, etc etc. I think you know what I mean. I think if you really took care of your song and spent time on the EQing, balancing the sounds and giving everything it's own place, you would have placed top 3 easily.
Aside from the negative things, this song has a lot of heart! Filled with tons of variation and additions throughout, I really love that about this song. Also the parts where things are minimal (04:35) you can tell how awesome this song could have been if every facet of the song were crafted carefully with the proper EQ and balance. :)
I'll say it again, you really captured the heart of the contest (the heavenly part, at least). Really good job. :)
