Maroon 5 first started as a hit sensation, will they keep it up in the future?

I liked a couple or 3 of their early songs. Their new songs are so over played on the radio i'm tired of hearing them. Their older songs were better anyway. The singer sounds like he's using autotune on every song now.

Maroon 5 isn't the greatest, in my opinion. But they were definitely better back then than they are now. Their latest album is horrible. There's no sense of a band at all...just Adam Levine singing "Whoa-oa-oa-oa" over done-to-death dance pop on practically every track.

I like them, but don't like the song Moves Like Jagger.

Hard to tell...IMO they need to develop a new direction. I haven't heard the progress from one project to the next just more of the same. Not only that there are some bands that are blatantly stealing their sound now. That usually means it's time to do something different.

If not they've had a great run on the charts and I think they are good enough musicians to maintain career on the live circuit for a long time.

Have you heard them recently? They've gone into an entirely new direction. Songs About Jane had a more alternative sound. They've gotten poppier on subsequent albums, but Overexposed abandoned the rock sound altogether for more electronic pop/dance.

Didn't two of the Marooney Brothers used to play in David Bowie's band Tin Machine?

I remember hearing Harder To Breathe and loved the rock/soul vibe it had. I went out and bought the album and was so disappointed-I haven't liked anything since. They made a great case for downloading a song as opposed to buying an album.

I'll put like this: When an artist or band's fanbase turns into mostly teenage girls, inevitably the music is going to suffer.
As soon as they released the second single "This Love" from "Songs About Jane", it went downhill for them.

Can you say,


In reply to an earlier post on Mar 27, 2013, 5:27:13 PM PDT
That would be Soupy Sales' sons Hunt & Tony who played with Bowie, Phil-

I've never liked them. Phony dog and pony show like most of their kind of ( GAG) bands. But that is just my opinion a lot of children and swoony girs like that kind of reprossesed electronic disco. Take away the electronic enhancement and what do you have left...nothing

Not in too much detail..a few songs here and there. The changes seem a little more cosmetic and calculated with the overall sound still intact. It's still solid pop music in my mind. People assume that since it's pop the band doesn't have chops but those guys do. A good example of a band changing its sound I think would be 5 Album The Police career from Outlandos D'Amour to Synchronicity.

Still though I don't to pile on the band. Corporate execs have a lot more say so on music product now than they did back in the day when a lot of record companies were independent.

I didn't know Tony and Hunt Sales had Soupy as their dad. How cool is that.
