Interesting from a minimalistic standpoint.
Interesting. As an "educated" musican, (and have the doctoral student loans to prove it!) - I'm interested in this cut due to it's sheer difference from much of Maroon's other material. I am captivated by their energy, syncopation, and continual development in their "traditional" rock music- I am really enjoying this cut, as an example of their "range" melodically, stylistically, and musically. It's not a "Maroon 5" rendition of the song, and it "aint" John Lennon, so if you're looking for either, you're probably not going to like it. If you'd like something sweet, pure, minimalistic, then you'll enjoy it. 'nuff said.
Subtle, and makes you think
I read all these reviews and I think people are missing that the lack of emotion might be on purpose. To me it makes it more powerful. The song is kind of saying there is nothing to be happy about; there is not much to rejoice about, So this is christmas? Just a thought.
I was surprised when I heard this version on the radio. I really like it!! I think his voice fit in well with the song. It will never be John Lennon's version, but I think they did a pretty good job.
