The intro sounds like ambient.
It really does, it doesn't have much in it. There's a bit of popping, which I'm assuming are drums. But they come in so slowly, and softly, popping, that it seems ambient. When the chording synths came in, it seemed really sudden, and I couldn't hear the little bit that goes in at the beginning very well anymore, which disappointed me tremendously. The repetitiveness of it kind of works, but by the time I got to 1:50, I was bored. It doesn't change much, just adds on more constantly. Once it got to the tune, starting at 2:03, I was honestly wondering if there was going to be a tune at all. Please open it up a little faster, it's kind of dull as it is. Unfortunately, after this, it gets REALLY repetitive, and is the same thing for another 40 seconds, before getting more chording. There's not a melody at this point, until the same melody that was there before came back in. Even if something is repetitive, it needs something to change constantly for people not to get bored, unless this is just background music or ambience. I enjoyed the sound effects that come in after 3 minutes. They enrich the track at that point. Unfortunately, from 2:44 to 5:01, you can skip anywhere, and it will /probably/ sound like you didn't change it at all. The outro works, taking out individual bits slowly. It's still a bit sudden though...
What I would do is bring things in a bit faster, and have it be in different keys. Maybe have a few different kinds of synths, some breakdowns, some openings... As it is, there is Intro->Rise->Top->End. No real changes at all, just the same thing. While it's interesting the first time, about 60% through, after that, it's pretty boring. We've heard it all before.
