It Won't Be Soon Before Long
Label: Interscope Records*
On their first studio album since the multi-platinum debut Songs About Jane, Maroon 5 does it again with their sticky brand of alternative pop. It Won't Be Soon delivers more retro synthesizer grooves, infectious guitar vamps and semi-sweet lyrics. Frontman Adam Levine's buttery falsetto sizzles in "Nothing Lasts Forever," a response to Kanye West's "Heard 'Em Say," while "Can't Stop" introduces flirty funk layered under electro synth riffs.
