Using Clips of Songs in Album Reviews

Hi guys.

I've got a little question.

I recently started a new SoundCloud account, and I want to use it for posting album reviews.
I recently uploaded a track with a short clip of a song from an album I was reviewing. The clip was only about 15 seconds. But, afterwards, it was taken down for "copyright infringement".
It was only a clip of the song. Isn't that fair use?
If it is fair use, what can I do to get the track back on my profile?
Sec 107 of the Copyright Act allows for the reproduction and/or alteration of a copyrighted work for the purpose of criticism (including parody), education, journalism or research.
