Very nice and soothing, I could fall asleep listening to this!
Why didn't you even get 1 top 5 from all of the about 80 of your submissions. I don't even see how 0-bombers have the heart to 0-bomb songs as amazing as these.
Melodies, as stated in the other reviews, are just beautiful, but I don't even know why I even say that in every review I leave on your songs. It should be obvious now, lol XD. The piano melody was very nice, and so was the flute melody. Instruments are just amazing, except the piano which needs a bit more fullness to it (like some reverb or maybe a less abrupt piano sample), and the piano, which had a bit too much of a pitch bend to it. Other than that, the instruments sound so great together. I absolutely loved 2:17 as well, it made a nice climax to the song, and felt just so epic. Brilliant strings too, and the choir voices were cool as well.
The transitions were made perfectly, as usual. Good job on the reverse cymbal, and the buildups were gradual, professionally done and out of this world. Extraordinary structure, with no chorus but no randomness or repetitiveness to it. I honestly can't make a song sound random without a chorus repeated every 16 or so bars, but you made the song sound so fun-to-hear, varied, and great. The intro was great too, and if I had to go through it, I wouldn't change a thing, but unfortunately, the ending didn't impress me much. Piano endings are quite hard to make without sounding like a sudden stop, so I think you should remove the quiet piano at the end and added a final long-ish note with the flute at the end.
Drums, like Darklight said, are slightly too quiet, and there was a kick which was reverbed quite a lot, and didn't fit much with the song. Other than that, from what I can hear, the drums are quite well varied, although nothing really too special.
I rarely give out less than 10/10 in your songs, and this is just another review with that score =.= . The only things which bothered me a little were mainly the drums and ending, because other than that, this song has no right to not be in the top 30. Even your old songs impress the heck out of me. It takes a lot of talent to write a song as amazing as this, and you're full of it. Keep up the amazing work, can't wait to hear more masterpieces from you.

Most of the problems you mentioned are simply because its an old song, but I don't want to change it for fear of ruining what I consider to be one of my best songs.
Great stuff, love listening to your music man. Loved the flute although there were a few certain places were the pitch wasn't that great. Also, like SBB said, the piano was a bit plain but the guitar mixed in perfectly.
The kicks had a bit too much reverb and the rest of the drums were a little quite. The strings i loved and the rest was purely great.
All in all, i only gave u a nine cause of the few negatives i mentioned. Keep up the great stuff man.
this is like lord of the rings turned kick ass! XD keep up the good work!
It's a nice song that will help u take ur mind off things...
