MaybeThis has to be one of my favorite songs from one of my favorite artists. The song just has such a beautiful flow to it with such a sense of dreaminess. It is well written and well recorded. The vocals remind me of that classic rock sound. I bought it and you should too. Show support for the great independent artists!!!
Him again!First of all , I love your chord progressions. Secondly, I swear you sound like Scott Walker, go check him out. This is very original and unique.I pray that things work out for this man, I'm rarely impressed.
MaybeMark, like the sound and your vocal on this song and kind of spacy musical background. Especially like the lead guitar solo did you do it - Excellent sound wish you well with it! Hope you continue to write you can see you have had a lot of experience in songwriting and arranging. All top drawer... love it!
UniqueI really like the song it is very unique and creative song well composed and well put together I like the lyrics and the track and thank you for sharing your craft with the world keep on making great music at anytime I would like to hear more of your music and you have a blessed day and may God continue to bless you in all that you go to create.
MaybeI love this moody track, it has all the undertones of darkness and mystery yet has bright, intelligent lyrics of hope about a relationship hopefully restarting. There is no doubt over the power of Marks voice and classic rock vibe but there is gentle touch to this track that draws my ear. It's something with the extra gliss of bells and percussion that makes it for me. Hope to hear more soon !
Sympathetic LovesongAgain a great composition of the multi-instrumentalist M.A.Carrol. His distinctiv vocal making this wonderful composition complete. He also wrote the music and playing obviously all guitars. I just can say, this sounds really like a very good love song. The lyrics comes from the heart and touches the soul. The refrain is lovely and makes the meaning of the song engaging for me. The melody is an extra factor and brings additionally beauty into the music. Wonderful played acoustic guitars carry this perfect composition and the rough e-guitar in the backround brings some more interest into the music. Overall a very creative arrangement from the composer. This is a nice lovesong and it could be a radio hit. Listen to the music and I´m sure, you will like to add it. Let others know your recommendation.
"Maybe" is a definite keeper!Mark Alexander Carroll has a vocal and instrumental style that is easy on the ears, and lyrics that flow "gentle on the mind." He sings of feelings we've all had and can relate to in relationship. His manner of delivery recreates the state of being he describes, which makes the whole performance totally fitting. Nice work, man! Looking forward to hearing more.
I don't have the words!First offf, thank you for the privilege of listing to your work. I'm a child of the 70's and when listen to you sing, and this is a big compliment, I heard Gordon Lightfoot! Arrangement, instruments were A1 brother, I'd love to do a co-write with you as well!
MaybeI am in my sixth week as a member of N1M. The name Mark Alexander Carroll has appeared a number of times and I have listened to many of his songs. Personally, I remember back to my teens where rock and perhaps harder rock was a larger part of what I listened to. I have a good and positive view of this genre and it is nice that it still exists. If it was up to me, I would have spent a little more time in the studio in the downmix and main mastering, but the artist himself is probably fully aware of this. The bass is sometimes very prominent and the vocal has too high signals that make the vocalist become more cautious / careful around the quiet sections. We hear this disappear in parties where there is more energy and where the vocalist may take a step away from the microphone and then it all smooths and balances more pleasantly. So maybe there could be an idea to turn down the signals a bit on the signals ( so the vocalist gets more space to work ) in the verses or to simply use different vocal tracks for the quieter and more powerful parties. These are minor adjustments. I like the songs very well and I am a big fan of multi harmony on vocals. Super cool with double catching guitar solos as well. I will continue to follow you. Good work. I wish you good luck on your solo career. ( Hope I did not offend anyone because that was not my intention at all. I am very positive to this band and have shared their songs many times on my private social media ). Best wishes from Norway.

Maybe is for LoversGreat start and feel of this love song kicks in from the start of the track. Well balanced vocal and instruments provide a great sounding Pop song that has very catchy melody that I would listen to again. I don't often rate above 4 stars but this gets above 4 because it's a well crafted song well recorded Great work like this a lot Mark
Mellow love song..Maybe...probably Yes!I enjoyed your composition and performance very much. This song to be very pleasant with a mood that went well with your theme and your mellow voice works very well with the style, genre and mood as well. I would like to extend some constructive criticism that may help you to take the song even further, although it was definitely well done. Watch out that your voice is not competing against an instrument that has similar timbre. (for example, around this phrase ‘I realize your hesitation..’) This happens early in your song and the accompaniment should support and blend with the voice not overshadow it. Your voice is delightful, I found myself wanting to hear it more. Once in a while the sound is a little pushed…perhaps relaxing your jaw and just trusting your sound. .. This is the usual cause (along with neck tension or head posture) but you may take some time and try to notice where the tension is coming from. Using a variety of vocal dynamics and variations in tone especially with the chorus or repetitive phrases can be very effective to create more emotion with your vocals. There were some spotty moments were the listener hears breaks in the flow of sound. This may be due to recording technology issues. I like the positive message about someone willing to keep trying in the relationship; not giving up. The overall form of your composition was balanced. Your song had a very nice guitar solo with an excellent placement in the arrangement to make it interesting. Rests and changes in arrangements are as important and melody and harmony, the effective creation of tension to release of tension, whether in lyrics, voice or accompaniment. Nicely done!
A nice surprise.I am listening to this track on a very basic computer, with no headphones on.. but the sound of it all is far from bad ! The mix is ok, the arrangements sound intricate, the vocals have got suitable harmonies.. I love the verses, and the whole melody. It is a very good piece of what we called 'Fm Rock' in France, back in the nineties. The only weakness for me would be the structure of the song : perhaps it needs more sophistication (especially at the end), or the choruses would benefit from a different treatment, to make them stand out more. But I don't care : congrats for this song !
Mark Alexander Carrol My Review!Hi first of all the music for this song is very pretty and well produced but what I noticed more than anything the vocals of the lead singer you have a very different voice range and style of singing so my thought's are to be very selective as far as the songs that you sing which is not a bad thing what matters is how it is used and used in the right way which also means being selective as far as the producers you may use in the creations of your songs. You have a different vocal range working with the right producers could either make you have a million dollar voice or one that can become a complete failure as far as your music career so you would need to be creative as far as type of songs to fit your voice that you have as a producer my voice is different kind of voice so I had to do the same thing with songs as a R&b,Soul,Funk,Singer keep in mind you have something special when it come to vocals use it well my friend I do hope ive said something to you that will help you further your music career from James Milligan/President CEO,New Experience Rec Rick Ross Music Group/UMG 30 years experience in the music business.
MaybeDieser Track weiß zu gefallen durch die sehr gute und druckvolle Voice der Mix ist sehr gut so das sich die Instrumente von einander sehr gut in Ihren Facetten abheben. Das Gitarrenriff ist sehr gefällig und sauber gespielt Deswegen von mir 4 stars Greats from Germany G.W.Scott
nice song.Hi Mark Alexander. It's me again. Hey man. Nice song. You've got a great voice. Musically well done. There's nice harmony in the singing. If your songs are for personal listening only, then there must be certainly A LOT of persons that may like your music... I'm from Belgium and the music scene is not so well elaborated and organized as in the States, but hey, I want to go for more than just personal listening with my music... Keep up with the good work. I'm curious for more of yours. Can you tell me where in the US Missouri is situated ? Your song makes me truly dream away... Greetings. Love. Pieter from Ghent, Belgium N1M search: spiceypete
