EDITORS’ NOTES

After Adam Levine put his indie band Kara’s Flowers to bed, he assembled and recorded Maroon 5’s debut album, Songs About Jane. The opening “Harder to Breathe” grooved on a funky rock foundation, with Levine hitting high tenor notes and sounding like he'd attended a good number of Jamiroquai concerts. The following “This Love” is just as catchy, with dialed-down guitars and an octane boost to the band’s funk engine. “She Will Be Loved” simmers down for a beachy serenade before the strolling “Sunday Morning” braids Levine’s love for Jay Kay and Stevie Wonder with some Philly-flavored blue-eyed soul.
