Maroon 5 turns their back on the fans who followed their blues-rock-pop style and turns to generic pop that is instantly forgettable. The standout tracks are SOLELY the ones where they show evidence of their roots in pop-rock, rather than synthetic, artificial pop
I remember when you could tell this band had some rock influences. Obviously none of them survived to see this album be released. Furthermore, there's no good pop influences either, because this is so uninspired and vapid, it makes me wonder if they're becoming a commercial product.
