This album is surprisingly amazing!

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, but Maroon 5 has mastered it, creating an album that is fun and very sexy. For the first time in quite a while I can say that I have bought an album that doesn't sound like anything else I own.

Singer/song writer Adam Levine is great. His voice, his lyrics and his guitar playing are incredible. If you've ever been in love and lost this album is for you. The vocals on this album absolutely can't be ignored. Adam Levine (lead vocals) sings his heart out. In every song his teardrop voice is filled with genuine passion and soul (stand out vocal performance "Sunday Morning"). Lyrically they follow the same trend as they do vocally and musically, impressive. Maroon 5 is a band with undeniable talent and this Octone Record CD is 12 great songs right down the line.

The songs that really stand out to me are "She Will Be Loved", "Tangled", "Harder to Breath", "This Love" "The Sun", "Sunday Morning", "Must Get Out" and "Through With You". The problem from me is of the three above, were released as singles, which were constantly being played on music TV and radio. You couldn't turn anything on without hearing Adams voice (which is okay to listen to, but not 24/7).

This album makes me smile and most importantly makes me listen to it over and over again. The flow and the rhythm of the album are easy to listen too. The songs are not too soft to put you to sleep and not too hard to shock the hell of you. If you like Maroon 5's radio hits then you'll like this album greatly.

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 …

About this topic


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
