Pretty cool!

I like how you took simple phrases that each instrument plays and combined them in a way that is interesting and flows from one section to another.

In terms of composition, the song wants to go somewhere, but kind of stays still. There's a long buildup without an epic conclusion. With music, we're pretty much always telling some kind of story. So, keep in mind that you'll want to hook the listener, and then take them somewhere. Tell them the story you want to tell!

I really like your B section at 0:55, it has a subtle, yet hum-able melody. This is the piece I gravitate towards because it has a melody I can relate to. The first section is just setting the scene. Because the B section has the juicy bit, I would recommend trying to get to that section as fast as possible. My suggestion: 4 measures of drums, then bring all the other instruments in on measure 5 and have them play until measure 8, then jump right to that sweet B section at measure 9. (or measure 10 if measure 9 is a rest) After that, go wherever you want with it, as long as you take the listener somewhere new and interesting. Maybe you do the A section again and use it to build up into an even bigger B section that has the melody playing in two octaves with a bit of harmony for an epic conclusion. Or, perhaps you introduce a C section that has an entirely new tone, like you're trying to tell the listener something impactful. The canvas is yours!

All in all, its catchy, but feels unfinished. Keep plugging away at it! Try something. Don't be afraid to experiment. Be brave! You have talent!
Its not garbage, its a start! :) Let me know when you flesh out the idea! I'd love to hear it!

Thanks for the feedback... condescending as it was.
