Review: Maroon 5 – It Won’t Be Soon Before Long

It’s been a while since their smash-hit album from 2002, and that one is actually still riding high on the charts (#17 Amazon). I personally can’t judge that album (Songs About Jane), since over-airplay works as a deterrent for me (This Love & She Will Be Loved). I do know it was a fusion of Pop, Rock and R&B.
But most will hear a definite shift in gears with their new single (Make Me Wonder), being more funky than ever. And the album, while still fusing more styles, is funk-based. It’s up-tempo groovy happiness, but somehow I never seem to catch the wave, and so I can’t be really positive about this album. Of it, I can appreciate a few easy-listening tracks, but that as far as it goes. I guess it’s just not catchy enough.6-.
