Hi there. :3

The Good:
-So I've been listening to your music recently and I've noticed that you have this really distinctive "shiny metal" style. It's all very obviously synthesized and kinda metallic. Maybe it's the synths you use, maybe the way you use them, probably a mix of both. Either way, it's really obvious when something is your music, and I like that. I like your style.
-I'm liking the syncopation caused in part by the delay at the beginning along with the bass, it sounds pretty cool and interesting.
-The sliding instrument at the beginning is also pretty nice, the release of tension at 0:24 is very satisfying.
-Your drums are really nice, I'm always surprised at how good you manage to make DSK drums sound.
-Nice release and change at 1:38.
-There are some really nice details, such as the little drum fills at 1:49-2:01. The little off-beat chord stabs after that work really well too.
-Transitions and overall composition are both excellent. You've made MAJOR progress here, I really like it. Even the ending sounds decent, which has been one of your biggest issues in the past!

The Not-So-Good:
-There's still a lot of repetition, particularly in the drums. It's obvious that you're using patterns that repeat for almost all of the instruments.
-The drums seem like they come in off-beat at 2:37. Similar thing happens at about 3:00.
-At about 2:40, I noticed that the end of your kick has a bit of an awkward release, you might want to use a better sample.
-The volume chopping at about 3:20 and towards the end of the piece gets a bit overly powerful.
-Ending could still use some work though. Try using a resolved final note instead of the end of a pattern.

Overall: Man, you really impressed me here. The flaws are extremely minor and very few (unless you want me to start getting VERY nitpicky like I did on Step's piece Encapsulation), so you're getting a 5/5 from me. Excellent work. :)
