Kara's Flowers - The Fourth World
If you are wondering why I started a review of this album with a little rant about what a pile of garbage Maroon 5 is, it's because Kara's Flowers is made up of 4 of the 5 jerks in Maroon 5. Whereas Maroon 5 is an atrocity, Kara's Flowers is a perfectly nice power pop band. I actually really enjoyed this record. As a matter of fact it has a much better song about Jane ("My Ocean Blue") than anything Maroon 5 ever cranked out. This album is so enjoyable it makes my brain hurt to think that it was made by the same people who have been stinking up the airwaves for the last decade. This is cognitive dissonance personified. I know big words.
