Glad to see that your music continues to improve
It seems that every song you write has an extra little bit of complexity to it. That shows that you're learning and retaining.
I'm digging the pad intro! It's a great way to ease the listener into the key, especially with ambient songs. The percussion intro was a very nice effort, but it doesn't quite work for me because the static pad seems to clash with the pads you've set up. It's a nit-picky thing, but I think you've hit the stage where we can pick nits.
The drop at 1:08 comes at a nice time and really supports the melody changeup right after. Starting at 1:27, I think it starts to get a little too busy. There are a lot of similar-sounding moving instruments in similar-sounding octaves. It's a simple suggestion, but maybe try to move one of those leads down an octave or two and see how it sounds. Occam's Razor, right?
You're already aware that the glitch section is quite a mess, so I won't address that. I do find myself wondering how effective it would be if it lined up properly. It's very sudden and hard-hitting, which is a really sharp contrast to the mood thus far. I'm not saying scrap the glitch effects altogether, but maybe limit the effect to just the percs or another few instruments? It's easy to get excited with glitch effects (I went WAY overboard with it in my first iteration of Ghosts in the Machine).
Lol Zelda OOT.
For the remainder of the song, my only real criticism is the over-abundance of hi- and mid-range instruments. The only bass I'm really getting to balance things out is that (those?) pad(s?), and they're a little too weak to counterbalance the rest of the sound.
The outro's great. Nice and simple, easing the listener out as easily as you brought them in.
Overall, I think this is another step forward for you. For your next songs, I would work on achieving a balance among your hi-, mid-, and lo-range sounds. That's a helluva lot harder than it sounds. For an example of how not to do it, check out my song, Sunset. For an example of how to kind of sort of somewhat do it, check out Glass Galaxies.
Always a pleasure hearing your music. 4/5 8/10
