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...

There aren't very many modern bands that I really like--especially not enough to purchase all of their CDs--but I must admit, I am somewhat addicted to the unique voice of Adam Levine, lead singer of Maroon 5. When I heard the first release from this new album, "Misery," I thought it was kind of catchy, but I had no plans to buy the CD. However, the song grew on me, and it wasn't long before I found myself placing an Amazon order.

HANDS ALL OVER definitely IS a catchy CD. "Misery" opens the album, but the three tracks which follow, "Give a Little More," "Stutter," and "Don't Know Nothing," all have a very similar, pop-like feel. This is fine; they are decent enough tunes. But they lack lack the soulfulness of ballad like "She Will Be Loved" or the edginess of "Harder to Breathe" (both tracks from the band's first album, Songs About Jane. Even their second album, It Won't Be Soon Before Long, retained a bit more of a rough sound (e.g., "Wake Up Call") interspersed with ballads such as "Goodnight Goodnight" and "Better That We Break."

And that's the main problem I have with HANDS ALL OVER--the lack of variety. Every song seems like another pure pop tune; the one track coming closest to a ballad is probably "Just a Feeling," which is still fairly up-tempo. Similarly, there are no singles that really stand out from the crowd, either, although the title track, "Hands All Over," does have a bit of a funkier sound. Also, the duet with Lady Antebellum, "Out of Goodbyes," is well-done, but nothing remarkable.
