0:00-1:18 :: Beautiful intro; really sets the scene.
1:18-2:12 :: Teasing us with snippets of the melody, interesting way to build it up.
2:12-3:55 :: There's the melody we know and love.

6:03-6:25 :: Again, feels like a new section.
6:25-7:17 :: Again, there's that melody again.
Nice buildup too..
7:17-8:09 :: Was kind of expecting a more dramatic breakdown to happen here, to be honest the previous bit was building up and building up and then.... nothing. :-/
8:09-9:01 :: There's the breakdown I was looking for. I like the way the purcussion fades out at the end of this bit.
9:01-9:23 :: Nice way to end the tra-HEY WHERE'S THE REST OF THE MUSIC, SONG. D: Yeah, it kind of cuts off suddenly mid-loop, might want to sort that out.
Overall, pretty damn good. A couple minor flaws towards the end, but nothing too detrimental. Should totally consider submitting this for OCReMix.
Personally, I would've put a bit of compression over the song, just to bring the levels up, but that's just me; I like my tracks dead on 0.0dB most of the way.
