Review: Maroon 5 – Don’t Wanna Know (Pop)

This review covers the pop track Maroon 5 – Don’t Wanna Know.

This track was released in 2016 as a single.

The track features a rather acoustic sound in the percussion’s. It also features some pitch-bent vocal samples. The track then utilizes the bass guitar to fill some of the silence found in the track. The lyrics touches on the subject of drinking and relationships.

While there are build-up elements, that’s all this track features. Because of the rather minimalistic sound, there’s not much overall variance in the sound. What high parts there are, the sound just winds up being extremely bland.

Another problem with this track is the excessive repetition of the vocals. It is possible to repeat a word or two every once in a while at most, but this track layers this on extremely thick. While it is possible that the producers intended for this to give the track an upbeat and carefree sound, the track comes off more annoying than anything else.

The only thing I can say positively about this track is that this one isn’t as clunky as a lot of pop tracks I’ve heard in recent time. Unfortunately, I’m really digging for something positive to say when I make this comment.

Overall, this track features boring acoustic sound mixed with annoying lyrics. While it isn’t as clunky as other pop tracks I’ve heard, there are still few redeeming qualities featured in this track. While the producers might be aiming for something upbeat and happy, the only thing about listening to this track that made me happy was when I finally could stop listening to it.
