New song - Hiss'story

I really, really like this one. The production and the vocals in
particular are great, there are hints of Bowie in there at times. I love
the spacious mix, and the way the percussion uses the stereo field. No
frequency or distortion/saturation issues at all,I think you've nailed the
mix perfectly.

Criticisms, if I have to... the fade-out is to early and too fast. I'd like
to hear at least a couple of bars of the outro before the fade, which eats
into the last chorus at the moment. There's a lovely swoopy sound at 2:09
that's really great, but is a little buried. More like that over a longer
outro might be a good recipe?

The two-note xylophone-ish sound all the way through did start to annoy me
a little on about my 3rd consecutive listen, not a big issue, but maybe try
dropping out out for the choruses so it lifts the verses?

I like Jay's idea of a middle 8, that would being it up to normal pop song
length. A good place for a guitar solo maybe, or have the xylophone-ish
sound break it's 2 note pattern for a bit?
