Product Description

Product Description

The alternative pop/rock act's hit 2002 album. J Records. 2004.

Amazon.ca

Maroon 5 isn't the first band to fuse R&B and rock, but they certainly are one of the most convincing. One can almost hear Stevie Wonder's beaded dreadlocks 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 is a thoroughly engaging outfit, thanks to throbbing bass lines, hooky songs, and lead singer Adam Levin's swaggering delivery. --Jaan Uhelszki

i remember it was some weekday morning (let's say tuesday) before school that i heard "harder to breathe" for the first time on the radio. as soon as i heard the first verse i was like "holy crappers! where's a pen and paper?!?!?, i'm gonna have to download this when i get home!!". and so i did, and many of their other songs as well. after sampling many of the tracks on this album, i decided it was time for me to buy it. after all, a band that produces good quality music like this really does at the very least deserve people actually buying their music. besides it's been a while since i've heard awe-inspiring music like the tracks i hear on "songs about jane". to me, a perfect blend of rock, soul, r&b, and funk. here are what i feel are the highlights of the album:
1. Harder to Breathe - 10/10 - love it love it love it, can't get tired of it, the most rocky song on the album, lyrics are great, i just absolutely love it.
2. This Love - 10/10 - yah, i know, overplayed, but i dunno, despite that fact, i just can't seem to get tired of this song. i always end up singing a long and jumping around to this one.
3. Shiver - 9.5/10 - overall awesome song.
4. She Will Be Loved - 10/10 - again, i know, overplayed, but still, it's just such a beautiful song. i love the lyrics, i love the melody, the vocals, it's just perfect.
5. Tangled - 10/10 - this one's got a funky feel to it. great lyrics, great melody, great everything.
6. The Sun - 10/10 - beautiful song, i absolutely love this one. i love the feel it gives.
7. Must Get Out - 10/10 - i love this song.
8. Sunday Morning - 10/10 - i love it, love the fact that you won't hear anything else new that sounds like this song on the radio.
9. Secret - 9.

Four stars!!!! If it is 5 stars it will be perfect, no room for improvement on the second album, which will be the definitive(if not the jinx, as the usual superstition) album for any artist there is. Seriously, Adam's voice is not that brilliant but it sure fits the whole context of the album. I JUST CANNOT STOP CRANKING THIS ALBUM UP everytime I play it.Amazing!!! I still have 100%of my hearing (so far I had been listening to this for almost 2 years running, on my daily commute).Cannot wait for the sophomore album.

Bands that generally cater to the today's young adult audience never expect their sound to catch on to anyone born before 1970. You know a band has made it for good once a song that was released only to mainstream formats is being played on radio stations that play the likes of Phil Collins and Celine Dion. Simply said, Maroon5 are the best band to come out of this generation. Sure, that may seem like an exaggeration to many, but never has there been such a broad range of musical styles molded together since Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine blended Latin rhythms and pop beats back in the mid-80s. Songs About Jane is without a doubt a contender for Album of the Year; there is something for everyone on this beyond-superb album. Many of the current bands today copy each other's sound resulting in a generic, wailing-like alternative style that seems more annoying than pleasing. Maroon5 totally went the opposite direction by combining rock, alternative, gospel, R&B, funk, blues, and pop together to create a sound that, up to this point, has been oblivious to mainstream listeners. Songs like "This Love" excite the mind-and tongue-with its witty, catchy chorus lead by some funk guitar rhythms and piano playing. "She Will Be Loved" warms the body and soul with its tender feel about the unyielding love one feels for that special somewhere, whereas "Sunday Morning" feels like a Stevie Wonder-type tune. Also, "Harder To Breathe," "Through With You," "Not Coming Home," and "Tangled" exemplifies the bold mixture of alternative and funk with gritty vocals. Lead singer Adam Levine, who also wrote the entire album inspired from his former long-time girlfriend Jane, sings so convincingly as if he was born to warm people's hearts.Read more ›

Maroon 5 is one of several up-and-coming bands along with The Darkness, Jet and N.E.R.D., that although are very different in style, all are creating great music in striking contrast to the endless slough of whiny alt-metal bands around now that all sound the same. When I first heard the lead track "Harder To Breathe", I was knocked out immediately; finally at long last, a band with actual TALENT that writes positive songs as opposed to the angry, self-loathing tripe from bands like Staind, Puddle Of Mudd, Nickelback, etc.
"Songs About Jane" is a solid and consistent debut, filled with catchy hooks and surprisingly good musicianship; after listening to the entire CD, I felt that I had stepped back in time. Maroon 5's fusion of R & B and rock is not new by any means, but is a VERY refreshing change to the load of crap that is clogging up the airwaves these days. This album and The Darkness' "Permission To Land" are my choices for the best albums that have been released in the past 5 years. If these guys don't become immensely popular and successful, something is very wrong!
