Product Description

Product Description

Celebrating 10 years since its release, Maroon 5’s Songs About Jane - 10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition contains a two-CD set of original song demos, including previously unreleased songs such as “Take What You Want,” “Woman” and “Chilly Winter,” as well as “Rag Doll” and an alternative mix of “The Sun.”

The second disc provides access to a pair of videos on maroon5.com when inserted into a computer, including unreleased in-studio footage of the making of Songs About Jane as well as the official electronic press kit for the album.

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

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.

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

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.

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!

The first album from American group Maroon 5 has made a massive hit with the general public. After its release over two months ago now, it's still hanging in the Top 10 album chart.
But the question is; why is it so popular? Well this review is certainly overloaded with positive reasons.
The album:
Consists of 12 tracks, of which 9 are brilliantly catchy, and the other 3 are reasonably dull. The album has all their currently released tracks pressed onto it, and even holds some future tracks aswell.
Is it good?
It's brilliant. Let's get down to the main point; why it's brilliant. Never before has one debut album held so wide a selection of genres in music and portrayed them with the beauty that controls them. From the rocking beats of 'Harder To Breathe' to the bluesy and upbeat 'Sunday Morning' to the romantic attempted tear-jerker that is 'She Will Be Loved,' each has it's own unique and individual thoughts that worked their way into the lyrics. You can only say that one album consisting of many genres is brilliant. Especially when each of them is brilliant.
Is it bad?
Well, if we consider that they wrote every single and placed it on the album in chronological order, then we can see that they got bored on the last three singles. The first 9 are the ones that keep you interested, and the ones that are so packed with interestingly sufficient lyrics, upbeat tunes, and finger-clicking entertainment. But then at the last three there is some yawning involved. These last singles are the ones that feel boring, over-packed with dull and nervous music, and fail to keep the reputation of "brilliance" that the first 9 singles give the album.
General information:
The debut album from American band Maroon 5, featuring three of their currently released hit singles.
