Works very well...enjoyed listening.

One thing I personally wanted was for a few sounds to be a little more upfront in the soundstage...everything sounded quite distant which made it very slightly 'flat' mix-wise.

Something different for a Sunday afternoon. Nice ambient drone but maybe a touch too much reverb, but either way track works well.

This distant sound is fully intentional, I think it engages more listener's attention.

Thanks for a comment. I used such amount of reverb to get this "distant sound" effect. First I tried using EQ only, but every time sound became "shallow". Then I tried various reverbs on all layers and most of the time one of the layers "stood up" in front, and I didn't want that. Finally i found combinations of reverbs which satisfied me, but resulted with somewhat "flat" sound, as ChamMusic pointed out.

but using too much of certain types of reverb sounds "fake" shoot for a more natural sound.

no, it sounds fake.
i found your reverb overcooked and narrow sounding, lacking the width of a more natural sounding open space.

If it was the sound you wanted, then that's absolutely 100% OK with me - it's your music! :0)

Just note though:

A number of listeners will find that 'flat everything is distant and awash with reverb' approach a little bit dull throughout a whole piece...it certainly didn't help to engage my attention at all...I really enjoyed the piece, but it was the excessive use of reverb that put me off it a little bit!
