I was just wondering what are the final checks you go through to check that your music is up to standard or "polished"?

As far as composition goes, I'm never "done" with a piece. There's always going to be something I wish I could tweak, or improve, or change, or whatever. Same thing goes for any FX I design. But my rule of thumb is that once I'm content, and the client is happy with it, it's time to move on. If I have time later I can maybe go back and tweak something, but once those two criteria are satisfied it's usually time to leave it alone and shift my focus to something else. Throughout the process though, I always like to check my final mixes against tracks that myself and the client have set aside as references. I do some comparisons for volume between the reference tunes and the finished track just to see if they come in close volume-wise. That usually makes the client happy with the volume, and gives me a little leg to stand on if they do come back with the inevitable "can you make it louder?".
