SINGLE REVIEW: Depression by Jade Massentoff

Jade Massentoff’s “Depression” is the work of a star in the making if there ever was one, as she shines like no other on this amazing adult contemporary pop ballad with a vocal prowess that contends with the great singers of the past, while it surpasses most current voices on the pop music scene. It takes more than a pop singer to do that, which Jade definitely-qualifies without any argument on the subject-of that and her talent level in general. And from where she comes, I have no idea but I’m glad I heard this song because like anyone else I connect with the graphic lyrics.

As a new artist, Jade could very well make a lot of noise with this immensely powerful single, either that or I’m behind the times because it’s a thing of sheer beauty no matter which way you slice it. The track itself sounds very improvised and loose for a radio-friendly number, but it’s not that simple. There’s something more elusive to it that only the singer can understand, but once you hear it you get the exact same feeling she gets across. The emotional content is lever lacking as she lets it all hang out for a change in the usual mainstream heard on contemporary stations around the world.

Apart from what any opinion can provide, Jade makes this song so real because of how she relates to it herself as both an artist and a person, which can be explained in her own life story involving a lost family member. The subject matter hits home so hard you can’t help but see yourself within the main frame of the lyrics, which essentially relate to the human condition. You can also drop the analyzing and just let a great song do its healing without knowing what the words are even about, as the mellow backing track tends to soothe in its own-right and comes recommended for that as well.

The acoustic guitar and piano begin to weave at the outset for the first 18 seconds or so before Jade’s huge voice comes in, which is perfectly paced for radio-airplay but that is only the beginning of what grows into a monster of a song within the next 20 seconds. What’s to be heard from there is a matter of jubilance for a song about depression, so it’s as uplifting as it is tear jerking and that is how Jade almost defies her own musical logic. It serves as a vehicle for her voice as much as a song of hope, so it also has a dual purpose that way.

If she keeps recording songs this good, the bonus will be on the public at the fair price of admission, as this sets the standard very high and most artists reach their goals when they never stop aiming. It’s literally impossible to hear “Depression” and not be compelled to give it top marks, it’s much too superior to ignore once you hear it and the artist herself. It’s very well produced and mixed with quality and integrity, which shouldn’t be dismissed as part of the final product, but Jade gets all the in-coming credit and glory she deserves.
