Jason Masi: Power Of A Woman
Jason Masi comes from the Singer/Songwriter category and offers up his perspective on love in his latest release The Power Of A Woman. The album is a ten track offering that, aside from the opening track “How To Be Rich”, is all about being in love, being out of love, mending it and breaking it, and simply just letting it amicably go. 
If you’ve been following me all these years you already know that, to me, an entire album of songs that drone on about very central emotion tends to get too repetitive and stale, even after just the first go. Masi and his backing band at least offer up from diversity in the albums songs by crafting some nice tunes together, even if they simply blanket the mundane. 
Masi has an interesting voice. I wouldn’t put it up there as one of the greats, but it’s so everyman in the way that it doesn’t throw theatrics at you to make the lyrics sound genuine, they just are. Masi manages to capture heartbreak, flirtation, and even wisdom in keeping his delivery melodic and straight forward. 
Musically I’m picking up a lot of comparison to singers like  Brandon Boyd, Eagle Eye Cherry, and even in some small way Adam Duritz. The overall sound reminds me of Scott Fisher and the A.M. Approach or even a more toned down Jason Mraz. 
In the end the album, lyrically, doesn’t say to me that it’s going to stand the test of time. Songs about love in all its many facets are a dime a dozen these days. Musically the album is enjoyable and if I ever see myself throwing it on again it will likely be for comforting background noise. In the end though you’re the final judge of weather not this album is for you so check it out and see what you think. Enjoy.
