Harsh. And a little bit political.

Anyway, un-wooed by the demo, I didn't pick this one up so I'm glad you took a big swing at it; I had heard it was somewhat unambitious.

I feel like Mayes does much better when she's not doing a straight song review of a game. The big conceptual stuff like the "Beautiful" song and the oddly poignant Yahtzee psychoanalysis are where she really stands out as an artist. In a way, the format of a game comment or review seems too constrained for her considerable talents.

Glad to see your videos again, I was really starting to miss them. This one also doesn't disappoint. I am already looking forward to the next one.

This was a fun little song! I could see many of the common complaints against Crackdown 2 in reflected in the lyrics and video of this song...
I'm also impressed Rebecca does so much in her videos! Must take quite some work to piece up all that.

Where have you been miss Mayes? We missed you and your segment here. My week feels less complete if i don't listen to a musical reveiw of something.

Anyway i liked the video (and the jacket) kinda sounded like the backing track to a tom waits song, you know without the paint-sripping but awesome vocals over the top. Very home made jazz.

Nice to have you back. The long wait is over, now we're up for an equally long wait.

Glad to see you returned to your old style though. Costumes, performing, lyrics and music were great but at the moment i'm feeling like listening to something more fun, i'll come back later to watch it again.

It was more of a gaming market offer-demand critic than a Crackdown 2 review.

Is it just me or you look very sad? I hope it is just for the song theme and not the negative people from the previous videos.

Still waiting for your personal statment about the new schedule.

This was actually amazing... I do usually like the songs, but alot of them have the same repetive-feeling chorus. I felt this one in particular was more creative and just generally better :)

I see what you did there, with the red-and-blue outfit. Also, the meatball dance at the end was awesome.

This review has a two on the end of the title !
Therefore it must be awesome !
Or is that what I'm supposed to think ?
Anyway, it's nice to hear more muses.
