Thanks for the input everyone!
Since this version, I've taken the bass and some of the drum elements from the ending and added them to the intro. This will hopefully add some low end in the beginning and make the intro a bit more cohesive.

What I heard was a lack of deep end. I would fatten the bottom with some EQ or even double what there already is with some xtra subbass.
Thanks for the tip. I do have a subbass track mimicking the bass line, but I had it fairly low in the mix. As I mentioned before, my monitors don't have the best bass representation, but I have a sub hooked up. The only issue with this, is that the sub is on a separate volume control, and therefore tricky to balance levels between my monitors.
I'll definitely bring the sub up in the mix a bit. I should have the finished product in the next week or two (with the rest of my album). I'll make sure to post it somewhere in the forum!
Thanks again everyone! Keep being awesome
