Why has this track been rejected?

I am new here. Could some people be so kind to tell me, why this track has been rejected as not meeting the quality standards? Is it more the composition or the mix?

Many thanks to all!

Totally the mix is not good. Also some playing of velocities and quantization, feels lost and can not hear clearly, like some staccato strings. But most of all the drums do not have punch, they don’t have a bassdrum! Try working on it, its a nice song if you take care of it
