Album Review

Maroon 5 have certainly come a long way since their days in the indie outfit Kara's Flowers. After the band's demise in 1999, frontman Adam Levine surrounded himself with New York City's urban hip-hop culture and found a new musical calling. Maroon 5 was born and their debut album, Songs About Jane, illustrates an impressive rebirth. It's groovy in spots, offering bluesy funk on "Shiver" and a catchy, soulful disposition on "Harder to Breathe." "Must Get Out" slows things down with its dreamy lyrical story, and Levine is a vocal dead ringer for Men at Work's Colin Hay. Don't wince — it works brilliantly. Songs About Jane is love-drunk on what makes Maroon 5 tick as a band. They're not as glossy as the Phantom Planet darlings; they've got grit and a sexy strut, personally and musically. It's much too slick to cross over commercially in 2002, but it's good enough for the pop kids to take notice.

best album ever

I love them so much since when i first hear them in 2001! the best band ever. keep going Maroon 5

Love you guys !!!

Beautiful lyrics + Beautiful Voice= Beautiful Song :D

Energetic and comfortable, like your fave pair of running shoes

It took a few years for me to get this album. Suffice to say, the songs on here that have garnered so much airtime still seem to have their hold over me. Maroon 5 is a band for the more selective of the Top 40 aficionados, as much substance as style. Harder To Breathe kicks off the album with a bang, and it's in this track that you find the source of their restless energy and passion. Alternating between the angry, restless and soulful, their tracks stick to a certain pattern, but always unique in their similarity. Maroon 5 have their theme and they stick to it, and it's satisfying to say that they're better for it.

A mix of polished pop/rock and neo-soul made Maroon 5 one of the most popular bands of the new millennium, with songs like "This Love," "She Will Be Loved," and "Makes Me Wonder" all topping the charts worldwide. Previously, bandmates Adam Levine (vocals/guitar), Jesse Carmichael (keyboards), Mickey Madden (bass), and Ryan Dusick (drums) had spent the latter half of the '90s playing in Kara's Flowers, even releasing a debut album for Reprise Records while still attending high school. The record tanked,...
