Not too bad. Melody does feel a little forced, bassline is cool. Energy feels a bit off.

Actually remembered how it sounds like after a couple of days. Here's the full (official) extended mix (also edited the OP).

Armin is putting out classic trance lately. Nice to see! Melodic wise it's indeed not his/their best.

Overall I quite like the track, sounds more or less like I would expect from a Rank 1 track. I find that the melody goes on a bit too long, especially as it's constantly changing and some sections don't seem to be in the right octave and kind of ruin the flow. Gotta say though, especially the second crescendo is really made done and I love that section probably the most. The more orchestral elements in the intro of the break are not quite fitting in I would say, but then again Armin has been experimenting with that sort of sounds for years now.
