Maroon 5 are putting out a remix album on December 9, which features remixes of their songs by people undetermined (I have a vague feeling Pete Wentz is somehow involved). But that’s not what got me to write the inaugural story about Maroon 5 on Prefix. No, I’m writing because it seems to me that Maroon 5 totally lifted the cover art for their remix album (titled Call and Response, if you care to know) from The Rapture’s Echoes.
Everything about Maroon 5’s cover is a near-replica of Echoes’: the color scheme, the blurry photos, and the supposed attractive qualities of the members. Now, what this brings up is whether or not some art designer did this on purpose, hoping that Maroon 5 would appeal to the same ass-shakers that loved The Rapture back in 2003. Or did the same designer do both covers, and he just doesn’t give two shits about it looking the same. Who knows? What do you guys think? Here's The Rapture cover for you to compare to the Maroon 5 cover above [via Idolator]:
