When I remember I had the chance to see these guys play a bar. A bar! They closed for Jason Mraz. My only consolation is that I was 16 and was, obviously, not the driver for the night, so it was somebody else's bad decision to go home. A driver's license is a great thing.

"Hands all Over" is wall to wall muscular rocky pop with thoughtful lyrics and groovy melodies that go down easier than lemonade on a sticky summer afternoon.

The moody lead single "Misery," with its lyrics and melody in wedded bliss, enters the head and simply will not leave. It is far from the only such track on the CD.

"Give a Little More" sparkles and shimmers with Adam Levine's smooth, soulful crooning (including vocal flourishes that bring Michael Jackson to mind) and frenetic, dance floor-ready energy, while the yearning ballad "Never Gonna Leave This Bed" is likely to burn up both radio playlists and the hearts of (mostly female) listeners.

"I Can't Lie" is immaculately arranged and produced with a pop-savvy fusion of doo-wop and indie rock flavorings, while the title track is an intriguing lesson in contrast - icy in texture and arrangement, with hard guitars and pronounced drums, but stark and vulnerable in its lyrics. "Out of Goodbyes" with Lady Antebellum is a saddening slow-burn.

"Runaway" pulses and seethes under the weight of its nervous energy as Levine sings of the pain of being deserted by his love without an explanation ("But I can't tell you if you run away, runaway"), and the forceful, idiosyncratic, downright infectious "Get Back in My Life" would sound particularly well among the tunes on 2002's "Songs About Jane."

There are so many strong moments here that it is difficult to pinpoint particular highlights.

One month. Two favorite bands. Two new, long-awaited albums. One kicks ass, one sadly disappoints. If you'd told me Kings of Leon and Maroon 5, I'd have bet that KOL was the winner. Wrong-o. My wife, myself, and our two daughters agree on little when it comes to music, but all 4 of us can't stop playing Hands All Over. Even the dog perks up when Misery comes on.

Serious stuff? Nah. Polished, fun, danceable? Big time. Best party album since The Ting Tings. It's even stopped certain family members from playing Lady Gaga all day. If for no other reason, I'd give this 5 stars.

I've been to thirty-six concerts to see this band and waiting for the release of Hands All Over, I had extremely high hopes after being disappointed with their follow up to "Songs About Jane," "It Won't Be Soon Before Long." I remember concert #1 and falling in love with the sound of this band that was lost in their sophomore effort. Yet as I began to listen to their third album via streaming last week, and every day since, I've discovered, that with the help of producer Mutt Lange (AC/DC, Shania Twain), Maroon 5 has recovered much of the style I fell head over heels for in the first place.

Misery (5/5): The song, despite its melancholy message, was tailor made for summer radio. In fact, there's no better way to listen to the song than rolling the windows down in your car and turning up the volume. Maroon 5 was searching for a funkier sound with their last album, It Won't Be Soon Before Long, and that was evident in Makes Me Wonder. However, it appears with Misery, they found the way to do so that highlighted all of their strengths in a way that MMW didn't. With a hook that will stick in your head, it was perfect for their debut single.

Give a Little More (5/5): Already established as their second single, Give a Little More picks up melodically where Misery left off, an improvement on their last album. Less sugary than Misery, and with a far more sexy sound, the track features a really strong pre-chorus and a danceable beat.

Stutter (4.5/5): Despite the fact that I rated the song the way I did, this is actually my favorite song on the album. It definitely has a more power pop feel than the other songs on the album and I liked the bridge immensely. However, the harmonies actually make this song feel weaker, as does the doubling/tripling of Adam's voice.

I've liked Maroon 5 ever since their first album. "This Love" and "She Will Be Loved" left me breathless in more ways than one. After hearing their first single "Misery" from Hands All Over, I decided to purchase their latest album. It has quickly become my favorite Maroon 5 album to date.

The CD begins with the sassy "Misery," and the hits don't stop until the final song. The acoustic version is pretty good, too. Most of the album is full of funk, rock and pop. But in the end, genre hardly matters in my view because good music is just what it is: good music. My favorite track is "I Can't Lie." It's beautiful beyond words, carried out by Adam Levine's unique crooning. The bonus track "Last Chance" is pretty memorable as well. It's full of attitude; in fact, the entire album is full of that.

I recommend Hands All Over to Maroon 5 fans and newcomers alike. I can keep going on about how great it is, but I think one actually listening to it will truly do the group justice. Check it out!
