Album Notes
Review of previous releases:


With Wyscan

"These guys lay down a solid foundation on which DEAN MADONIA, trained as a visual artist, can create his passionate and colorful vocals." - Brian Eckert - Verge Magazine (Miami) (Sep 11, 1993)

"Madonia's strong vocals, have a sonic passion" - Sandra Carol Schulman - Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel (May 20, 1994)

"Most high-energy bands are fronted by upper-register shriekers, but Madonia's influences are more akin to Elton John and Billy Joel. His range is considerable, his delivery relaxed…" - Bill Meredith - XS Magazine Sept 21 - 27 1994

"This quintet is an accomplished progressive metal act that ascends a few steps beyond the heavy posturing of better-known groups like "Dream Theatre" by withholding their technical virtuosity until the right moment."
Richard Pomplesch - Jam Magazine May 10, 1995

"Madonia lends his expansive vocals to the sometimes intricate, sometimes ballsy configurations of the other four to fashion a sound that reflects elements of the kind of Seventies "progressive art rock" purveyed by Yes, early Rush, and early Genesis."
Greg Baker - New Times" (Tuesday, August 16, 1994)

Deep Sky (solo)

"Dean Madonia have done this years so far best indiependent release… contains some great lyrics and gets me to think of guys like Kevin Gilbert, David Sylvian and Bryan Ferry." - Par Winberg - Midwestern Skies (Swedish e-zine at melodic.net)

"His voice is a cross between the late SHANNON HOON of BLIND MELON and PEARL JAM'S EDDIE VEDDER." - Maxine Hinds - MTV local

"a great musical work, with good hooks, instrumentation, vocal displays, and messages." - Deborah Toby - Jam Magazine Issue # 251, June 19 - July 2 1998

"Dean Madonia is following his own muse rather than chasing trends." - Bob Pomeroy - FOCUS 17

"Madonia pulls it all together with spirit and imagination. It is rare to find someone so meticulous and yet so soulful. The album is reminescent of Todd Rundgren's best solo work" - Fran Snyder - CEO "Concerts In Your Home"

"an excellent collection of lyrics and music" - Kurt Channing - Ink 19

The Light Of Reason (solo)

"A well performed and produced album, which gives a good insight into Dean's talent. It is good to come across an Adult Alternative album that lives up to its musical genre." - Tony Bates - Highlands 100.7FM (from radiodirectx.com) (Jun 18, 2006)

"Dean Madonia… is one of the hidden talents here in Nashville, and I look forward to hearing more from him soon." - Addison Rogers - XNRock Nashville (Jul 4, 2006)

"No Tomorrow,"a hard-driving song that could easily be a radio hit." - Revue Magazine (Aug 1 2006)

"…a lot of of talent hidden in this man and I'm sure we'll hear much more from Dean in the future." - Par Winberg - Melodic.net (May 31, 2006)

Madness And Desire, One Night In America (solo)

"…excellent instrumentation as well as superb arrangements." - Brad Fischer - Nashville Music Guide (Apr 1, 2006)

"…Dean's voice - which is as good as always." - Par Winberg - Melodic.net (May 31, 2006)

"Dean is an awesome musician and a very talented songwriter." - David W Edwards - Atlanta Songwriting (Apr 7, 2012)

Shadow To Shadow, Dean Madonia's Frankenstein (solo)

"Dean dives deep into the dark abyss of Mary Shelley's timeless classic novel "Frankenstein" and returns with 26 great songs that range from the outrageous to sublime. This album shows an accomplished songwriter/performer/producer at the top of his game."- Derek Sivers, founder, CD Baby, sivers.org
