I am absolutely obsessed with Maroon 5’s new album “red pill blues”. I️ definitely can relate to all the material and the whole new vibe. Besides the singles that are already being overplayed on the radio, these are some of the other tracks I️ really took to…
“Best 4 u” is an honest confession from a toxic partner warning his lover of the inevitable pain she’ll experience if he doesn’t cut ties with her now. The catchy chorus doesn’t downplay the fact that the lyrics are definitely a dark foreshadowing. Sometimes trying to deter someone from pursuing you can actually backfire and make them want you more. Eventually they come to learn the hard way that ignorance isn’t always bliss.
“Closure” is currently my favorite. I️ love the lyrics raw honesty about break ups and cutting ties..especially the physical ones. True sexual chemistry is really hard to find and once you find it, it can be incredibly difficult to let go of. I️ know I’m not the only one who’s had “closure” go on for weeks, months or even years with a passionate ex lover. No matter how much time has passed or how many bridges have been burned, some connections with certain people can never be denied. The sexy track is over eleven minutes long (due to an extended outro that has a late night jam session feel to it.) For that reason it makes it the perfect song to leave on repeat while you go in for more “closure”.
“If you want closure, come on and close that door
I know, know, know what’cha really came for”
“Whiskey” had me in my feelings from the very first note. I like the reflective lyrics about the innocence of young or new love. Definitely made me feel some nostalgia for moments of the past. But with lyrics like these…how could it not?
I really like this duet between Adam Levine and Julia Michaels. Her husky voice perfectly compliments Adam’s impressive falsetto vocal range.
Not gonna lie, this is probably the track that you’ll end up dancing to in your underwear. It’s super sad lyrics but it’s upbeat tempo somehow makes it work.
Denim jacket goes along with the nostalgia you hear in “whiskey”. It’s tender yet still bittersweet.
All in all.. this is the first album in a really long time that I am able to let play beginning to end and truly enjoy.
Cheers to Maroon 5!
