JORDI (Deluxe - Explicit)

Maroon 5

Pop - Released June 11, 2021 | Interscope Records*

Hi-Res
Eclecticism has always been the watchword for this Californian group that has been going for about 20 years, under the direction of Adam Levine, now 40 years old. The 7th Maroon 5 album has the feel of a big Hollywood production: the band's ranks are swollen by a whole cast of collaborators and countless supporting roles. No less than 49 (!) writers and composers were called in for a record which aims to synthesise all the currents of contemporary pop. Even Johann Pachelbel and his famous Canon make an appearance in some passages on Memories - a nostalgic ballad for the departed. Note that the title of the album is a tribute to Jordan Feldstein, former manager of the band, who died suddenly in 2017. Take a deep breath before trying to list all the guest appearances on this album. We'll start: Zimbabwean rapper Bantu on One Light, rapper Megan Thee Stallion on Beautiful Mistakes, the legendary Stevie Nicks (of Fleetwood Mac) on Remedy. As usual with Maroon 5, the set looks like a gigantic pop stew – effective and rich for some, tasteless and commercial for others. © Nicolas Magenham / Qobuz

JORDI

Maroon 5

Pop - Released June 11, 2021 | Interscope Records*

Maroon 5 named their seventh album after Jordan Feldstein, a longtime friend of frontman Adam Levine who was also the band's manager. Feldstein is also the subject of "Memories," the 2019 hit single that launched 2021's Jordi, but this album should in no way be collectively seen as a somber, sentimental, or reflective affair. It is a Maroon 5 album through and through, so it's filled with strong hooks, chill vibes, and songs about sex, territory Levine navigates by floating above the glassy surfaces with his falsetto. Guest stars abound, with the bigger names providing a significant personality boost: Megan Thee Stallion gives "Beautiful Mistakes" a carnal charge, Stevie Nicks helps steer "Remedy" into New Wave territory, and H.E.R. dominates the cool groove of "Convince Me Otherwise." Only five of the album's 14 songs are credited to Maroon 5 alone, a move that helps Jordi play like a deftly sequenced cross-genre playlist, a feeling accentuated by how "Memories" is present in its original mix and a remix featuring Nipsey Hussle & YG. Levine and company aren't the focus here, they're the connective tissue on a softly amorphous album that sounds entirely like latter-day Maroon 5 without ever quite seeming to belong to them. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

Red Pill Blues

Maroon 5

Pop - Released November 3, 2017 | Interscope Records*

Booklet
Set aside the unforced error of the title Red Pill Blues, an allusion to The Matrix that has also been co-opted by Men's Right Activists -- a group whose combative sensibility is the polar opposite of the perpetually smooth Maroon 5. Set aside, too, the album cover, where the group -- who now number seven -- are all decked out with Snapchat filters, a gambit that suggests the group is a bit too sensitive about their veteran status. Taken on its own musical terms, Red Pill Blues is a sleek, assured affair, one that sustains a seductive neon-streaked mood from beginning to end. Embracing their essential identity as a blue-eyed soul band, Maroon 5 update their sound through a bevy of producers, spearheaded by executive producer J Kash. Unlike its 2014 predecessor V, a generally fine album undercut by a slight brittleness in the Max Martin production and a desperation highlighted by the vulgarity of added single "This Summer," Red Pill Blues glides easily -- so easily that the extent of its EDM-inspired digital collage production isn't immediately apparent. One of the reasons the modern sheen doesn't blind is that every track pushes the groove front and center, but behind the rhythm there are strong song foundations. As such, Red Pill Blues doesn't play like a collective rhythmic and melodic hook in search of an ear: each cut unfolds with its own internal logic, with the different textures playing nicely off each other. Everything comes to a head on "Closure," an extended 11-minute smooth-funk jam that throws all the album's strict structure out the window. Its presence not only draws attention to how Maroon 5 can vamp, it also highlights the discipline behind the rest of Red Pill Blues. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo
