I thought this was a great song! It's mostly because it has this really hopeful mood to it. Then again, the description you gave of it was anything but. Oh well, either way, it's a great song. It seems like you were trying to create the impression of things sparkling. It just sounded very ambitious to me. You don't often come across songs this long and one that is so long usually turns out to be really good.
You may have also been trying to imitate some game taking place in a castle like "Castlevania". It had sort of a medieval atmosphere, now that I think about it. There are a lot of good, contrasting styles going here. It's just a very enjoyable song that has a lot of atmosphere. It does it better than most songs.
