Long Night - Final mix

I figured this one deserved more of a listen than just on lappy speakers, so I just did that...and wow, it's even better than I thought it was. Bass tone is fab. Love that. Guitars not too shabby either. I also boosted the vox some and that sounds better to me, but you'll have to enlighten me on the first two words because I'm still struggling to make them out however much I boost the vox.

Detailed crits: (I know you said it's the final mix, but FWIW....)

I would bring down the cymbal crashes at 3:39 and 3:44 a smidge - as everything else fades away they seem to stay at the same volume which kind of makes them sound like they are even louder. Maybe that's the idea, but they stand out a bit too much for me.

There's a noise at 4:12 that sounds like it's not meant to be there - sounds a bit like an edit or the mic picking up some keyboard sound. Nit-picking now, but I'd have to get rid of that if it were mine.

A fine piece of work overall though. 

Thanks! Good catches, I appreciate the critical feedback!  I think that sound is my wife watching TV. I don't have a studio, just a dinky untreated bedroom right next to the living room. I thought I got it all but must have left a sliver of it in there. 

I'm posting the lyrics on the site, but the first words of the song are, "Another long day boy, another long night." I know, I often sound like I have marbles in my mouth. That's actually something I'm working on. Thank you!
