    I liked the building up of the drums in the beginning. I like the hook starting to come out at :55. I'm feeling the riser should maybe be a lower pitch, but that's just my personal nitpick. The drop at 1:40 was good. By 2:26 it's progressing nicely. Really like the sub. Breakdown at 3:08ish... very nice echos of the mellow start. I kinda feel the 2nd drop should hit harder than it does, but I could just be misinterpreting the genre. The strings are nice. I didn't seem to notice them earlier; they have very nice progressions. I do feel the outro could have more going on than just a simple fade out.

    The whole thing is very well-polished; maybe some more veteran posters can find more things to fix. I myself enjoyed it.

    Thanks for the response. I see what you mean about the second drop, maybe if i filter the pads out just before for a split second of silence and hit with a cymbal on the one or something it might impact a bit better

    You lack in the sub bass region and your mid bass clashes with some of your bleeps on top. The track is nice all around and I do like it. It is very pretty.

    A high pass sweep on the bass from say 3.02 to 3.08 would work well rather than simply cutting the bass. Also some kinda lead-in to the reintroduction of the beat at 3.50 would be good, i.e. a reverse crash a little drum roll or something like that.
