Maroon 5 – One More Night

First Hit #1: September 29, 2012

Maroon 5 isn’t going against the trend of troubled relationships, though the chorus isn’t big here – it’s actually a lull in the song, the verses are much more sonically interesting and lyrically worthwhile – and I’m not sure Maroon 5 going for reggae was a great plan. To their credit, they’re trying for something different, and I can’t entirely fault an artist for attempting some kind of artistic development. It even sort of works – Adam Levine is capable of being a really interesting singer, and he is certainly going for a challenge on the verses. But honestly, Maroon 5 is not a reggae band, and there’s no question this is something of a lark rather than a serious endeavor for the performers. They’re having fun with it, and that translates well enough, but it’s not quite a comfortable fit for the band, no matter how game they are.

    Artists ought to play in different musical genres more, so I give props to anyone who gives it a go. Does Adam Levine really need the auto-tune, though? He doesn’t sound too sad to be stuck in this particular “bad romance.”
