Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Maroon 5 aren't the first band to fuse R&B and rock, but they're certainly one of the most convincing. On Songs About Jane, one can almost hear Stevie Wonder's beaded dreadlocks clattering in time to their deep, funky grooves. At best, the band conjure up latter-day Motown, complete with a shuddering organ and hyperbolic vocals; at worst, they sound like a stylised boy band, with all the attendant close harmonies and dramatic pauses. Despite these musical schisms, Maroon 5 are a thoroughly engaging outfit, thanks to throbbing basslines, hooky songs and lead singer Adam Levin's swaggering delivery. --Jaan Uhelszki

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 27 May 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I first heard the sound of maroon 5 a few months ago when the first previews of Harder to Breath came out. Since then I have thought about buying the album once of twice but i decided to buy it last month.
The album is brilliant. All of the tracks have a unique style of the lead singer who puts a lot of effort into each of the songs. The standout tracks are of course This Love, She will be loved, Sunday morning and Secret. All of songs are sung from the heart about his ex girlfreind called Jane.
Some reviewers have said that the last few tracks are not as good and I agree in some respects but Not coming home is a great song. If you like Stevie Wonder mixed with RnB and rock and jazz then you will love this album
Not one to miss out on

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good debut album 24 Jan 2004
By James
Format:Audio CD
Songs about Jane is the debut album from the band Maroon 5. I'm a great fan of these guys, their music begins with a rocky feel, however as the album progresses it becomes more like the mainstream boy-band music, but for some reason they seem able to maintain a funky streak about them.
If you've heard their music before, it's likely that you've heard the first track on the album: 'harder to breathe' I think that this is one of the best tracks on the album, closely followed by 'she will be loved'.
This album is growing on me the more I listen to it, overall well worth buying!

Harder To Breathe attracted to me this album, that along with the reviews...
'They sound like Matchbox 20'
'John Mayer joined them for a track'
'Sound like Santana at times'
It seemed very promising - but the album suprised me.
It was full of backstreet boys like tracks! Don't let that put you off, they are great tracks. This album swings from inspired grooviness (is that a word?) to sweet ballads.
At the end of the first listen I was confused - one minute they sounded EXACTLY like Red Hot Chilli Peppers, then Matchbox, then Santana, then Backstreet. Puzzled? Yes. Thrilled? Yes.
There are no weak tracks on this album, it's fantastic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Laid Back Rock 21 Aug 2004
Format:Audio CD
Most, by now, would have heard the first three singles of this fabulous album. Apparently, the whole album is about vocalist Adam Levine's relationship with his girlfriend and muse, Jane, and to appreciate the songs you do have to make the effort to listen to all the words. The Album kicks off with their debut 'Harder to Breathe', a fabulous rock song that grabs you from the first time you hear it and makes you sit up and listen. The second track is the equally wonderful 'This Love', their second single. The third track 'Shiver' is quite unusual, but still commercial. Next up is third single 'She Will be Loved', a very sweet, gentle ballad.
'Tangled', the fifth song on the album, is also quite mellow, but like all songs on the album has some wonderful lyrics. 'The Sun', is quite an unusual song too, very laid back rock. 'Must Get Out' is one song that needed to grow on me, the lyrics are great, but the tune does not grab you instantly. However, it is followed by the jazzy, laid back 'Sunday Morning', which is the perfect tune for that time of day! The piano on the next track, 'Secret', allows it to follow with a similar jazzy, easy listening feel, but they lift the tempo for the next number 'Through With You', and its petulant sounding hook (this is a good thing - honest!). Track eleven is 'Not Coming Home', a funky number about the end of a relationship. As the album starts with the first flush of new love, you will notice that the lyrics start to become a bit bitter towards the end of the album, which is about the end of a relationship. Thus the album finishes, quite aptly, with a rocky track named 'Sweetest Goodbye'.
I have used the term 'laid back' several times in this review and I think it sums up Maroon 5's music well, as the album is full of laid back, effortless rock music.

5.0 out of 5 stars possibly one of my favourite albums ever 2 Feb 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
No wonder this album has been so successful, it really is amazing. When Maroon5 released "Harder to breathe", I just thought they were like any other band, nothing special and nothing different. How bloody wrong was i? Most albums I have to listen to a few times before I get into it, but on the first listen of "Songs About Jane", I was hooked. The album is a collection of brilliant tunes written mostly by Adam Levine (vocals, guitar) and Jesse Carmichael(keyboards, vocals)about Levine's ex Jane. I couldn't possibly put their music into one particular genre, they're a mix of soul, rock and RnB. In my opinion, the best songs are the keyboard-dominated "Sunday Morning", which is probably one of the only songs on the album which reflects the good side of Levine's relationship; "The Sun" and "Secret" which is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. Ryan Dusick's drum beats are brilliant, and Levine's vocals are original and always full of emotion. I would recommend this album to anyone, and if you like "Songs About Jane", then you should check out Maroon5's album "1.22.03 Acoustic", which includes versions of "This Love", "Sunday Morning", "She Will Be Loved", "Harder to Breathe" and "The Sun". It also features a Beatles cover, "If I Fell" by Levine and a cover of AC/DC's "Highway to Hell", where drummer Ryan Dusick is on vocals.
