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.

Its highly annoying to purchase a CD...only for them to release different versions depending on where or when you buy it. I am tired of the 'bonus' tracks that change to try to force you to buy at Target or I-tunes or even Amazon. Worse I am tired of the 're-issue' to get the popular new song. What's up with that? We order the DELUXE EDITION but don't get the most popular song from the album? Gone are the days when you could just go an buy a CD...now you must evaluate the CD you are going to get from every source. And much of the time getting the actual CD is no necessarily where you are going to get the bonus track so you need to evaluate the MP3 section here as well as on I-tunes. And don't forget to evaluate the pre-orders...cause sometimes pre-orders have bonus tracks, although you might miss out on the extra special song they add to the album as they might add songs later. Ahh and the icing on the cake, is when they add songs and make them album only so if you want them--yep you are going to have to buy the CD again.

Seems rather greedy to me. Not necessarily the artist at fault here--more likely the record company. But the brunt of the anger lands at the artist's door so maybe you should do something about that...its just not a good way of thanking the people that are out there supporting you.

Guess I should be happy that I could pick up 'Moves Like Jagger' as a single...but I am not happy at all. And for Amazon to still be selling it? Calling it the Deluxe Edition--that's supposed to be better right? Yet if you go buy the regular album you actually get MORE than if you buy this.

You can bet I won't fall for another Maroon 5 'deluxe edition', like the one that is being touted as a pre-order now...

Mutt Lange has a knack for making it all sound effortless. He knows the formula and can turn out tunes with that "fresh from the farm" feel. This is a good and bad thing. For years he spent glossing up the hits for Shania Twain but you don't have to look far into the Twain cataloge to see that the content is about as deep as a puddle.
"Man! I Feel Like A Woman!" "Don't Be Stupid, You Know I Love You!"
Not exactly profound word play. But the man is a radio friendly hit-machine with those not searching too deep for quality.
But, I digress. Lange didn't write the songs on Hands All Over but he might as well have. With the exception of a few tunes, everything has been done before and done better. HAO is really all over the place. The lack of any cohesion isn't the problem, though nothing fits together. The downside for me was the overwhelming corniness.

"Misery" has a catchy hook, perfectly crafted for radio but something screams "This Love 2010". I like it for what it is - radio friendly.

"Get Back In My Life" is Squeeze-revisited. Squeeze circa 1985. Bouncy, lively and only missing the cheeky delivery of Glenn Tilford.

"Out Of Goodbyes", featuring Lady Antebellum, starts out like a weeper and ends in a wimper. What should be a harmonious blending of vocals turns monotone fast.

"Hands All Over" tries really hard to be an anthem. The lyrics are really cheesy and, diehards might not agree, it lacks any sex appeal M5 fans come to expect. With a title like that, I sort of expected the signature "obscure dirty".
This isn't a hand on a thigh. It's a pat on the head.

"Last Chance"...seriously? The lyrics are just oh-so-bad.
