Bangin' kick. I like the touch of verb on the very first synth, sounds like it might be default bit it's a really nice sound. I'm a trance fan. A progressive trance fan. So I might be biased in your track.

Fairly nice mixing, I feel it bleeds a tiny bit, like it could be tightened up a tiny tiny touch. But honestly, pretty good.

The composition and progression is nice, you don't miss any hits or transitions. I feel like part of what could be tighter is the shape of your synths and instruments, you could refine some of them, refine the volume envelopes to get really tight rythms, use some gates, use some note-length variety is what I'm saying here.

It adds that extra energy to a track.

But arrangementwise, you hit all the spots, you have a bridge, you have a progression, etc.

That up down pluck synth around 3:20 that goes on for a while is a bit stand out in the mix for being plain, since it's your main lead for quite a while I'd consider changing the instrument or dressing it up a bit. Even something as simple as a delay might rescue it from standing out as too plain to be a lead.

I like your lead up that happens after this, I can tell you really understand the arrangement of trance songs. The beat that follows the lead up is spot on around 4:45, it is definitely classic trance at that point.

So summary:

Anyways, overall good track very well arranged, that's your strongest point, the chord synth could be less bleeding, that one synth I pointed out as plain should be fixed, and maybe refine some of the shapes of your envelopes but honestly, very well done track in every respect.
