I didn't have time nor the energy to do any proper mixing for this song so every frequency range is way too stuffed...

Overstuffed? Seems fine to me. In fact I have only one criticism.

It's too short :)
It wasn't me! (well, actually, it probably was)

I think you definitely have the right idea. The song has structure and seems to me to have a clear beginning, middle, and end which means it seems to build properly. Any mix could be better probably, but yours doesn't seem too far off to me (as heard on my lame speakers). My only criticism would be that melody seems rather simple, and in many cases dead on the beat. This sounds like a piece with some emotion, and this takes away from that. Also the patches you used are not out of the ordinary for this type of song. This combined with the simple melody makes it loose a little interest by the end. Your could experiment with the patch selection and also vary the melody here and there.

Good feedback :) Thanks!

I'll consider all these while writing my next tune.

Wow, I really like this!
It's quite emotional, structured and not overstuffed at all.

Nice feel to this piece.

The shortness might work in it's favour depending on what tracks are either side of it. The only thing I was not sure of is the synth string instrument sound you used for the main melody - it lacks a bit of depth and sounds 80's ish. Apart from that - Lovely Piece.
