Listening to this on my tower speakers, so a bit of a different listening experience for me, but beginning seems interesting. Canned thunder threw me off, but the piano is interesting. I'd have liked if the piano was a bit less synthy, maybe more modulation and velocity would fix that. Chord structure in those strings is clashing a bit with the piano -- perfect fifth movements, sounds like; in that case, I'd recommend some brief study of music theory, chord resolutions. Also, we end up stopping right in the middle of a build to go back to a (catchy) arp once things finally seem to get going -- a beginning leading to a beginning. That threw me off.
I think what really gets me here is the melody is pretty good, but the chord progressions behind it aren't really all that pleasing. The drums and strings almost seem canned. Just not a lot going on there.
I'll give you a good solid 3.5 for a good idea, but the overly synth strings and some careless implementation of that really keeps me from going any higher, especially the arrangement and progression.
