Title: new maroon 5
Post by: j.hall on September 14, 2010, 10:29:25 am
a bit "commercial" for a topic around here, however, have you guys heard the singles?  best sounding production i've ever heard.  AND, it was mastered by our very own Brad Blackwood!!  

those mixes are stunning, and not fair at all.

have to admit, the sonics of the track i heard are amazing.  not a fan of the song at all.  i guess it's kind of like saying "the food didn't taste very good, but they used such good ingredients and prepared it so well, i want to like it."  

i'm being picky, but i think there's a little too much dist on too many thing for my taste in this kind of music.  still, it's pretty awesome sounding and wowing.

I haven't heard anything but the first single on YouTube, but I guess that's what happens when a band that's been together a long time and has tight songs has Mutt Lange make their record Smile

For reference see:


AC/DC
Foreigner
The Cars
Bryan Adams
Def Leppard

surprise, surprise... the real drums are gone...

You are right.  I had listened to three tracks of big songwriting bands in a row today before I found this post and lost my way in the sugary sweet pop haze....

'Hey Soul Sister' by Train was the track that did not have real drums... the Maroon 5 stuff still has the real drums.

mea culpa...

the real funny thing now that I've listened to some more of the Maroon 5 tracks is that it seems like they are now weighted toward the 'Sting circa Ten Summoner's Tales" chords that the singer had a tough time singing and had to be so uncomfortably auto-tuned on their previous stuff...

but it still sounds deeply infectious.

real drums or not, it's sonically unbelievable.  whether you like the band or not, the production is unreal.  

we can all slag on the autotuning, drum samples, blah blah blah, all we want, however, very few people on the planet are capable of this level of production.

and one of those people is our very own Brad Blackwood.  i tip my hat to him, nicely done sir!

I think it's much more like a great chef taking really poor to average ingredients but being able to still create something extraordinary

but I'm with you...


Mutt is incredible.

I may be reading this wrong...but this is a quote from the Maroon 5 website about when they first were approached by Mutt.

"After the initial round of pinching ourselves out of sheer disbelief and googling Mr. Lange’s name to marvel at his unparalleled track record of musical success extending far beyond the boundaries of genre and era, we were lucky enough to sit down with the man himself in an informal meeting."

Wait...

Did he just say they had to GOOGLE Mutt Lang?

I would have to google him to know everything he's done in his career.

Where would one find these singles?  I'm assuming they differ from the cd version of same tunes, right?  iTunes, I know, but anywhere I can find a .wav of them?

Cool, I gotta check that out.  I went to a show here in Nashville one time years ago and saw Maroon5 open for Everclear.  This was right after Maroon5's very first single ("Harder to Breathe"?) broke.  They put on an awesome show with incredible energy - so much so, that when Everclear took the stage, they immediately apologized for not being able to match their energy, and vowed to never follow them on stage again...
