One of These Days Mr. Troll

This is very lovely, mellow ride. Everything very easy and restrained - the perfect tune for winding down at the end of a long day, maybe on your porch, watching the sun going down over the wide open fields, holding a cold one.
Getting analytical here, there are a couple things that could improved upon. The drum fills could be less tripletted snare - one fill in particular seemed about 2x too long.
I do like the vocal blend of female voices with the old guy, but there are some places where they could've held a chord through his lyrics instead following his phrasing with too much sitting on a particular note.
Overall, the feel and effect of this thing is A-1.
