It's pretty rough, but it's my first attempt.

Quite an 80's sounding track, reminds me of Havalox if you've heard of them.

Suggest you work on the drums, up the tempo (?) and get some variation. Also, maybe add a pad at least. It's got some potential to be quite a decent song overall.

Hey, thats really good for a first song. I agree with JMP, drums need variation plus you should also consider throwing some hats in there as well, and yeah, you need a pad or strings to fill the rest of the song in.

I see that you'd like to meet Vince Clarke, that explains the Depeche Mode influence(I like Depeche Mode as well :D )

Keep working at it, your already on the right track, lol! no pun intended.

I like all the sounds (exept the FM arpeggio, which I can't understand in a Yazoo-style song), bass and percussion create a good groove. I think that this song needs more sounds, is too much "silent".

The vocal part is nice, but it is the only melody, I'd like to hear more melodies.
Bass sequence is quite good and makes its job.
The arpeggio is lifeless and so abused! I really don't like it.

I also suggest some variations to make listening more interesting.

Yes, a nice first work.
