Album Review

Madi Diaz is like the Wade Boggs of pop/rock; her songs never swing for the fences, but they always seem to connect. Last time she released a full album, Diaz was an alt-country newcomer doubling as a young college student. This time around, she's a mid-twentysomething road warrior with years of practice under her belt, and Plastic Moon feels tighter, tauter, more cohesive than most sophomore records. Diaz's voice is the best thing here — it sighs over the melodies one minute and holds long glory notes the next — but her songwriting keeps the album afloat, running the gamut from lush country balladry ("Love You Now") to heartland rock ("Gimme a Kiss") to slaphappy indie pop ("To Be Alone"). And then there's "Johnny," a modern-day interpretation of the mid-century "teenage tragedy" musical craze that spawned "Leader of the Pack" and "Teen Angel." In Diaz's update, the male character heads off to a street race in the rain, ignoring his lover's pleas to stay at home. The story never gets resolved, but that hardly matters; we've forgotten about Johnny by the time Diaz sings the first chorus in that siren-like voice of hers. This is radio-minded music shot through with enough quirks to keep it unpredictable and constantly interesting, and while Diaz definitely gets some help along the way — Kyle Ryan deserves special kudos for his songwriting help and sharp, economical guitar riffs — Plastic Moon still serves as a showcase for her considerable talents.

Customer Reviews

killer songwriter

I've been a Madi fan since May of 2007 when she performed with Ryan Hurlbut at Acoustic Long Island. If you can wear out an MP3 file, I think I wore that one out. She's a great songwriter and singer, and has surrounded herself with other young musicians just as talented as her, who really know how to back someone up and be a great band. She gives me hope for the future of great pop/folk songwriting and performing. Buy this album.

Amazing.

Madi's what you want out of today's musicians. An incredible voice, backed up by wonderful lyrics. She's stayed true to her music and it's rewarded us listeners with joyful melodies that shall play on and on into the night. Thanks Madi!

Love it

Great voice, great songs, real artist. This album is amazing.
