50 Favorite Albums: 30
Hey, do you think this album is titled V because it's Maroon 5 and the Roman numeral for five is V or is it because this was Maroon 5's fifth studio album? The world may never know. But it was probably both. This set of songs is my favorite from the Adam Levine-driven band because you can hear what they have become as a result of Levine's evolution. Gone are the days of their love ballads and now are the days of their hype dance songs because Levine is a different person than he once was. And some pretty catchy songs came off this album and you can still hear some on the radio today. Sugar, Maps, Animals, and This Summer's Gonna Hurt Like a Motherfucker have all been released as singles and they are all, quote unquote, jams.
