Wiki

Maroon 5 aren't the first band to fuse R&B and rock, but they certainly are one of the most convincing. One can almost hearStevie Wonder's beaded braids clattering in time to their deep, funky grooves. At best, the band conjures up latter-day Motown, complete with a shuddering organ and hyperbolic vocals; at worst, they sound like a stylized boy band, with all the attendant close harmonies and dramatic pauses. But despite these musical schisms, Maroon 5 are a thoroughly engaging outfit, thanks to throbbing bass lines, hooky songs, and lead singer Adam Levin's swaggering delivery.--Jaan Uhelszki

The songs on here are simply fantastic. This album mostly consists of relationships either good or bad. This band seems to have absorbed many influences and done a nice job incorporating many of them. Mix a little bit of this and a little bit of that and what do you get...Maroon 5. This band can't be secluded to one genre; they're really all over the musical spectrum. From funk to soul to pop to rock, this band blends everything together creating a fresh new sound. Yes, others are trying this sound, …

Those who listen to Maroon 5 are highly likely to be severely mentally handicapped. thus far it is unknown whether being handicapped caused one to listen to Maroon 5 or whether listening to Maroon 5 causes one to be handicapped. mostly likely a little of both.

Pros: See Review     Cons: See Review     The Bottom Line: Get it!     As I get older it is getting increasingly difficult to keep up with all of the artists (and I use the term liberally) popping up on the musical scene like so many musical weeds in an ever shrinking garden of multi-colored and vibrant lily's. Lately I have depended increasingly on television shows (mostly on the WB), and movies to introduce me to performers that might …

Pros: The group does a good job of mixing rock and funk...     Cons: some tracks don't stick out as much as others, and can be easily forgotten     The Bottom Line: Songs About Jane is a really good album, and Adam Levine's talent is impressive. I'm sure we'll be hearing more from Maroon 5 in the future.     I remember hearing Maroon 5's first single, Harder To Breathe in the summer of 2002. After only one listen, I had the catchy chorus …

Maroon 5 seems to be a fine blend of many musical styles. The lead off track Harder To Breathe is a crunchy New Wave Rocker with powerful guitar licks and strong vocals. Not Comming Home is another rocker. Howeer the wah wah guitar licks take on a funkier tone and the stylings somehow are reminiscent of the modern boy bands particularly the Back Street Boys.Other tracks have more of an Rhythm and Blues feel. The Sun seems to ofer a compelling organ track which is somewhat reminiscent of Stevie Wonder's …
