Reviews for "Notice Me!"

Sweet! Totally hardcore; I love it! It kind of reminds me of Linkin Park in a way. I love the heavy guitars. You rock! ;)
Hey, did you use the old recording instead of the new one I put up here? I think the new one would better match the speed of the song, since I was totally off on the first one. But, maybe the new version didn’t fit as well? Just curious. Still awesome, though!
So, you’ve heared that! You’re right.
After some testing and comparing I felt 100 BPM too “hasty” and the first version cooler (esp. the chorus). Ok, my personal taste…
And, you mentioned it, the tapper lacked through. So I decided to go with the original material as far as I could.
To reach a higher level proposal would be to do a recording with the playback. But I don’t know if you would want to go as far as that and it’s also a matter of equipment. (And experience and patience and …)
Anyway, was fun to do that!

I can’t explain it but even though the vocals are at times off and hissy, I like it. Very cool idea.

Great beat and a bass sound beginning, and I like the way you’ve set the vocals in the mix.
I like the melody, although it could be a bit more raucous and be consistent with the vocal. I’m glad, though, that you haven’t gone the full-scale noise route.
Some backing electronics, perhaps some cool freesound snippets, to give the piece a mildly industrial feel, would fit very well.
I’d like to hear some atmospherics to go with the longing and spirit of the vocal.
I like the way you vary things around 3—it really leavens up the song nicely.
This song needs a guitar solo in an instrumental break—something really adventurous, with runs and glissandi.
I like the return to riffs at 3:58 or so. The way the riffs just cut out at the end is not as much fun as if you’d had them fade and let her voice perhaps make its last “notice me!” cry a capella.
A very solid, good listen.

What a lucky case, I found another pearl on the bottom of the great ccmixter sea. Love the dark guitars, combined with this innocent vocals.
