16 Songs, 1 Hour 4 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Growing up is hard to do, but Maroon 5 heed adulthood’s call on their sixth album. Sort of. The wildly successful pop-rock band still focus on songs about love and longing, but their vantage point has started to shift. Vocalist Adam Levine sounds tired of endless games on the songs “What Lovers Do,” “Plastic Rose,” and “Don’t Wanna Know,” but that doesn’t mean he’s ready to throw away every good time (“Girls Like You”). Levine and crew bolster their cadence-driven style with moodier, synth-heavy moments and dancehall tempos. Thanks to co-signs from SZA, A$AP Rocky, Kendrick Lamar, Future, and more, the result moves the band closer to Drake, the Weeknd, and even Major Lazer’s territory.

When will you make good music again?

Instead of making gross mainstream pop you should go back to your old style like in Songs About Jane or It Won’t Be Soon Before Long, But hey anything for a cash grab (also putting Cardi B in your tracks doesn’t make you better, it makes you worse).

Is there even a band anymore?

Given you can't hear guitars or drums, only Adam Levine's voice, is there even a band anymore? They used to rock it, now they sound so douchey that it's simply disgusting.

Trash

When will Maroon 5 wake up and realize that they never had to change??? Overexposed was their last good album, but Songs about Jane was the best. The album description literally said that Maroon 5 IS a pop-rock band. They WERE, but not anymore. Seriously, when will they stop making this mainstream garbage and make meaningful, good music.
