1.0 out of 5 stars What a disappointment! They're better than this., 20 Aug 2012
This review is from: Overexposed (Parental Advisory Explicit Content) (Audio CD)
Until recently Maroon 5's albums have been really good with some absolute killer songs. "This Love", "Sunday Morning", "Wake Up Call", "Secret", "If I Never See Your Face Again", "Back At Your Door", "Just A Feeling", "Stutter", "I Can't Lie" etc. What a great voice and singing style Adam Levine has. "Sunday Morning" is among the most played tracks on my i-pod and my friends know me as being a jazz-funk, hip-hop, rare groove, acid jazz, soul fan.

I was really looking forward to the latest album, Overexposed. To put it nicely, what a massive let down! Apart from "Beautiful Goodbye" it feels like a bland electronic album that wastes their talent as a group. They are capable of real songs instead of whatever you call it on their current album. I don't know what Adam Levine is trying to do on the album. What a waste of an awesome voice. Shame!

I am still optimistic about them for the future. They can't have come up with so many good songs in the past and not be regarded as talented.

Anyone who hasn't heard their previous albums listen to them and you'll get an idea of what real quality songs are. I'll stick to my i-pod and wait in hope for their next album.

I fully agree with your comment.
I enjoyed the first album "Songs About Jane", however the singles relased from this album have left me reaching for the off switch, as the strained vocal delivery grates on the ears. This is throwaway pop of the worst kind in my humble opinion. Hopefully they will return to form on their next album.
