Product Description

Product Description

Maroon 5’s highly anticipated fourth studio album Overexposed follows the extraordinary success of global hit “Moves Like Jagger” which was the second biggest selling single in the UK in 2011, with 1.2 million sales.

This single as well as the Wiz Khalifa-featuring “Payphone” are both included on the album, which was recorded last year in Los Angeles with producer Max Martin.

Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine said of the release: “Overexposed is definitely one of our most diverse and poppiest albums yet. We had a great time recording it.”

Guitarist James Valentine added, ““Moves Like Jagger” was the first time we ever worked with an outside writer, so we decided to try it some more on this record. At this point in our career I think it was a good thing to completely mix up our process and it yielded good results, as well as a more collaborative spirit within the band. We wanted to make something that sounded contemporary with the elements of a lot of early eras of pop music. This is our most pop record ever and we weren’t shy about really going for it.”

BBC Review

Everyone has friends that don’t wish to keep up with the daily goings-on in global popular music, but like the odd update now and again so as not to feel left out and fossily. Maroon 5 are fast becoming their perfect band, being a fairly reliable and glossy barometer of how modern pop songs work – give or take a dubstep breakdown here or there.

So if the melodies on their fourth album have become more fragmented and repetitive, that’s because pop music tunes have gone that way too. One More Night’s melody can’t go more than a bar or two without repeating – as if the band is worried it may forget itself ­– or getting stuck on a Morse code note for a while, just like a Rihanna song would.

And if their choruses have abandoned the strutting cockerel heat of This Love in favour of the saturated rave bliss of Love Somebody or The Man Who Never Lied, that’s simply the effect of market they have chosen to operate within.

They are also keenly aware that today’s pop does not require much in the way of unattended music. Adam Levine fires up that nasal yelp as soon as the song begins, and does not let up until the fadeout. Wiz Khalifa (guest rapper on Payphone) gets more space at the front of the stage than the rest of his band do.

The exception is the Jacko-channelling (and distinctly old-fashioned) Ladykiller, which boasts an actual guitar solo. Otherwise every passing second is a vocal battle against a declining attention span, like a clicked finger in the face, forever.

Even the sequencing of the songs betrays this fear. All the compressed pop bangers – worked up with proven song-finishers like Ryan Tedder, Savan Kotecha and Brian West – are at the front, so you don’t wander off too soon.

If you think these factors combine to suggest a collective lack of confidence or personality, take heart: Overexposed boasts cover art so kaleidoscopically brash and ugly it makes you grateful for the decline of vinyl.

This CD certainly delivers. I've been waiting for the release of this for ages, ever since hands all over came out, and have had the date penned on my calendar for months. All I can say is this CD is definitely worth wait. It's upbeat, very catchy, but also has the slower songs to show off Adam's voice, such as 'Sad' and 'Beautiful Goodbye'. Die hard fans may feel that the new direction that the band are going in, more poppy rather than mellow tunes, may not be for them, but as I have bought every single maroon 5 album as soon as it's released, I wouldn't let the different sound of the band put you off. All in all, I would definitely recommend you buying it/downloading it as it wont disappoint!

She Will Be Loved is my favourite song of all times and is on Maroon 5's first popular album Songs about Jane. Now, I am really happy that I saw them last year in Dublin when I was fond of Hands All Over and do not have to think about attending another concert.
Maroon 5 have moved increasingly in the direction of Rihanna & Co. They will attract a particular audience but so, lose a lot of their old fans. I liked "Payphone" and was excited to hear the new album. I don't mind the influence of Rap and Dance on the album but they've changed a lot. Where are the guitar solos of "Harder to breathe" or relaxing melodies of "Sunday Morning"? When I first listened to the album, I got sick of it. Only one song except of "Payphone" did not make me make a miserable face (which is "Sad" that I still like the most). "Tickets" annoyed me so much, I simply skipped it before it even finished. Just now (and I bought the album around the day it was released), I gave the album another go. The first eight songs are okay, nice catchy tunes that you can sing along and forget afterwards. "Sad", I will need to learn on the piano and listen to over and over but the rest of them, I don't really care about...
It is good Maroon 5 is changing and not staying the same but they have gone into a direction in which they lost me and surely lots of other lovers of their "old" music.

I was little disappointed with this album, as the rest of the tracks fail to deliver at the same level as the two singles. It's certainly not a bad album, and there are some great lyrics, I just know that once I've added the singles to my MP3 player, the rest of the album won't be listened to often.

Arrived quicker than expected. Some of the lyrics are explicit as already mentioned in the listin, so no surprises there. My daughter is only 11 but she loves this group. Yep sone peopke may think I am an irresponsible parent due to the lyrics but to be fair she knows what she is and isn't allowed to say. It was bought for her birthday she was o er tje moon. Excellent.

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.

If you love Maroon 5, you will love this album. I've sung along to every single song!
The review needs me to write 20 words... I'm not sure whatelse to say. It has Payphone on it, and Moves Like Jagger. But all of the songs are great.

Maroon 5 had created an instantly-recognisable sound in their first 3 albums, with Adam Levine's wonderfully off-beat nasal funk soul voice acting as a counterpoint to the melodic soft rock beat of the music. The nearest comparison would be Prince singing his rockier tracks, such as "1999" and "Little Red Corvette".

So it's a huge disappointment that they have abandoned that distinctive formula and instead produced a generic-sounding dance album that is indistinguishable from dozens of other such anonymous albums, with a tedious hip-hop beat on every track, that drowns out Levine's vocals and destroys their previously distinctive sound. Hard to tell this is Maroon 5 at all.

LOVE THIS ALBUM, HOWEVER ON SOME GREAT TRACKS LIKE ' PAYPHONE ' SWEAR WORDS ARE TOTALLY UNNECESSARY. ADAM LEVINE IS GORGEOUS AND HE MAY HAVE WRITTEN THE SONGS THAT WAY, BUT I WOULD HAVE PREFERRED TO HEAR THEM ON THE DISC AS THEY ARE PLAYED ON RADIO ETC. OVERALL EXCELLENT TRACKS AND VERY MEMORABLE. GREAT PURCHASE.
