Plastic Makes Perfect is a great album title, but Jennifer Parkin is no stranger to great looks, writing styles, titles, cover art, and, of course, songs. While not every song on her four main releases (not including the exponential effect of multiple remixes available of every song) is a gem, with such diverse and adventurous undertakings (not to mention obvious talent), Ayria has a pretty solid hit ratio. If not “hit,” then “very listenable addition.” With all 12 songs of Plastic Makes Perfect available for streaming, fans can pick and choose whether they like the sultry synth pop, the harder EBM, the near-rappy dancefloor faves, or the icy ballads.
