“V” (pronounced “Five”) is the fifth studio album by american pop-rock band Maroon 5. It was released on August 29, 2014 by Interscope Records. The album will be the first to be released through Interscope after the band’s previous label, A&M Octone Records, transferred them along with most of its artists to Interscope. On July 29, 2014, the album was made available for pre-order on iTunes and through Maroon 5’s official website.
The album also sees the return of keyboardist Jesse Carmichael after his absence from the band’s previous album.
Critics are too bad for this album. Well, you can say it is not the best LP of the band, you can say it’s worst than others past, but it’s not bad!
This is not the Maroon 5 from “She will be loved” or “This love”. OK, fine. But songs like “In your pocket” or “It was always you” are made with the same style than those, and songs like “Maps” or “Unkiss me” take the group to another pop style -focusing the shot with Levine- that it’s successful as well.
For us, excessive bad blood.
