    Drums are the weakest i've heard yet today, Incredibly weak drums, they have no oompf / depth at all , Layer the kick with something that has more low end. This actually sounds like a bad case of compression to me, on the kick, that has made it so clicky, but i could be wrong. Might be a horrible sample as well.

    Same goes with snare, give it more body, right now it's weak as well, mayb a short reverb tail could help. Try it...

    The main synth line is okay to me except.. that it lacks movement.
    The way you've built the track is good... and that's pretty much it

    I gotta agree with Nacon, those drums are really poor! No offence meant by that, but they really let the track down

    You got good structure to the track, but need to work on your EQ and mixdown techniques

    There's no atmosphere in the track. Get some moody synths/pads going. The arpeggiated synth is OK... a little annoying though. Put a subtle delay on it or something? Just widen it up a bit.

    The drums work well until it drops when you expect something a little more. You know? Beefier. They seem to work well as percussion but it just seems like the track has no actual kick or snare.
