Cd Review: It Won't Be Soon Before Long
When Maroon 5 exploded onto the music scene in 2002 with its smash debut, "Songs About Jane," no one could have expected how successful it would become. Now the band has finally resurfaced with a new album and a new sound.
From the first alternative dance single, "Makes Me Wonder," Maroon 5 has both established itself and reinvented itself in a span of five years.
The sophomore effort, "It Won't Be Soon Before Long," drops on Tuesday, May 22. The band's sound is more trance-inspired, and the album's new songs will have fans dancing.
"It Won't Be Soon Before Long" has 12 new songs, all of which are much stronger than those on "Songs About Jane." Fans remember the constant radio play of the band's old songs, "Harder to Breathe" and "She Will Be Loved," but the new album represents the band's growth and evolution.
The new album's songs all sound like they could have been released during the '70s or the '80s. The band's inspiration came from older pop artists in the music industry such as Michael Jackson and Prince.
With a whole new sound, Maroon 5 will be all over the radio waves again this summer.
