Maroon 5 has a new album, Jordi, and it’s brought out some brutal reviews.

Pitchfork says “
The most you can hope for from Maroon 5 is oblivion. The band hummed and strummed their way into perpetual background music, cooing sanded-down soft rock in every Starbucks. It was anaesthesia. Levine became a bland, steady presence in pop culture, preaching banalities and judging TV singing competitions.”  
 
Even worse from Paste Magazine “The new Maroon 5 album Jordi makes me fear for the future of civilization.” 
 
Estelle Clifford’s been giving her take to Jack Tame.
