iTunes Editors’ Notes

It took less than three years for frontman Adam Levine to put his indie band Kara’s Flowers to bed and record Maroon 5’s 2002 debut album, Songs About Jane. The opening “Harder to Breathe” grooved on a funky rock foundation, with Levine hitting soulful high tenor notes and sounding like he'd attended a good number of Jamiroquai concerts before putting this band together. The following “This Love” is just as catchy, even with dialed-down guitars and an octane boost to the band’s funk engine. With Levine’s falsettos, it plays like a loving tribute to Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition” (albeit with woeful lyrics that contrast the sunny melodies by musing on the smoldering embers of a burned-out relationship). “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. “Must Get Out” dips Down Under for a detour that sounds rooted in early Men at Work songs.

Customer Reviews

Where did all the reviews go?

I remember hearing these songs on the radio in 2002. Back when artists still played real instruments instead of pressing buttons like they do now. Music had soul and emotion. It's all industry-produced fake plastic pop.

Maroon 5 used to be one of my favorite bands before they became a typical pop band. 'Songs about Jane' is one of the best albums of the early '00s in my opinion. Kids, listen to what was once a great (pop)rock band.

reminiscing...

flawless album... how far they've fallen

please come back to this

I grew up listening to maroon 5, and I wish they would make an album similar to this style & tone. they've become to mainstream. love them and they can do whatever style they like; but I miss "songs about Jane" :/
