That's going to be the first thing I point out, it's far too quiet and you really should check your levels. If you got any issues with peaking or interference with a higher volume, you need to look into getting that fixed, re-master the piece, because when it is as quite as this, it kind of ruins the feel of the track.
Not a bad track. It all does seem a bit random, I don't really know what "1990" has to do with the actual track itself. It could do with a bit more variation, as right now, it's mainly this one main synth running throughout the entire track. There is variation in the rehythmics and backing synths, and the ending is real cool, but with so few changes to the main melody synth, it feels a bit dull after a while.
It could also do with being... bigger, simply. Adding a few more layers, more ambience or more backing tracks in general.
Right, I'll look into that especially the levels thing. Thanks for the advice very helpful and i'll take it into consideration for other tracks and this one if I come back to it. I appreciate the review and all the help!
I think this piece sounds too quiet to make a massive impact, in all honesty. Yes, the form is good and it sounds great, but this is only if you turn it up quite a bit more than you have, as standard.
I feel that there is a good balance here, though I'm struggling to see what it has to do with the year 1990, as that year didn't sound like this to my ears, but then, it may have a specific connection with you - if there is, tell us about it in the notes.
The piece suffers a little from a lack of variation. For a three minute track, there needs to be something more, to distract from a basically monotonous beat. Even a solo, where the beat changes up a notch would be better than this. Experiment with tempo and the like, to see what comes back for you best and take the track in a new direction.

Wow, thanks for the review! Possibly one the most helpful ones I've gotten. I had to turn the volume down so it wouldn't peak and distort. 1990 is the year me and my friend were both born in so I figured a fitting title. Thanks again for the review, very helpful I'll take it all into consideration for the next track.
