Editorial Reviews

Recorded in Los Angeles, CA in late 2011 and early 2012, Maroon 5's fourth studio album Overexposed is a rich, pop-infused collection of tracks. The album was executive produced by Max Martin with additional tracks produced by Benny Blanco and Ryan Tedder. Maroon 5's musicianship and frontman Adam Levine's vocals are as distinct as ever on Overexposed, continuing to showcase the band's ability for creating songs that have become part of the fabric of pop and rock music today. Maroon 5 began writing and recording the album during their most recent world tour and the resulting collection is chock-full of undeniable, anthemic melodies. The album includes such stand out tracks as the emphatic Payphone featuring Wiz Khalifa, the irresistible One More Night and the rythmic ballad Beautiful Goodbye.

After seeing so many bad reviews, I felt I had to weigh in. This album is definitely more "poppy" than their others, and that may be disappointing to some of Maroon 5's loyal fans. While I am usually not one to dig pop songs, this CD makes me want to sing along and dance in my car. Granted, there are a couple of duds on this album, in particular "Sad", but most of the others are just fun. I am hoping they will go on tour for this album soon because I can't wait to see them perform these songs live. Don't over-think this album. Just sit back, crank it up, and enjoy.

Yes, this is the clean version. Edited songs are Payphone, Tickets, and Wasted Years. The explicit version shows [Explicit] in the album title.

A lot of critical things have been said about this album (see sampling below), but I think the most accurate and important one is this: "On much of the album, Maroon 5 barely sound like a band at all."

That's because Maroon 5 no longer really exists. They are no longer creating their own music. They recognized that all of the current hit music falls under categories like "disco-flavored dance-floor filler" or "dance-pop glitz," and they knew to sell songs they'd need to hire outside help. Who'd they hire? Look up names like Max Martin, Ryan Tedder, Shellback, and Benny Blanco--these people are the new "Maroon 5," and they are also Pink and Katy Perry and Kelly Clarkson and Usher and Britney Spears and Taio Cruz and Adele and OneRepublic and Gym Class Heroes and Sean Paul and Avril Lavigne and Justin Bieber and Ke$ha and Flo Rida and Pitbull. I'm not making this up--it is a fact that almost all of the music we hear on the radio is created by the same few guys whose names you probably haven't heard.

I think it would be fair to say that the Billboard 100 has never been in such a sad, homogenous state, and I think it would also be fair to say that the release of this album confirms that modern hit music is vapid and soulless--it is little more than brand names selling catchy hooks created by anonymous dance-pop gurus.

Adam Levine himself admits that Overexposed "is definitely our poppiest album yet," and he admits that he has a "love/hate relationship with it." Maybe he'll get back to doing what he loves if we stop buying dance-pop glitz.

Ok, so a lot has already been said/written about this album, but the polarizing reception made me curious from the beginning. Is this the kind of album we have come to expect from M5, or something else? Sadly, it's the latter. Here's my take on each song in this deluxe version:

#1 One More Night--this one's ok. Nothing particularly noteworthy, but nothing overly offensive either. It has that traditional M5 funk sound we've come to enjoy, even if the phrase "Cross my heart and hope to die" is cliche.
#2 Payphone--really good song, really liked it the first time I heard it on the radio. Unfortunately this is NOT the radio version, and as stated in other reviews contains some useless rap in the bridge. The rap is completely irrelevant, doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the song, and conforms to the traditional problem with rap--as long as the words rhyme it doesn't have to have any real message. Too bad, the song is much better without it.
#3 Daylight. This one's decent. Again not particularly great and a tad repetitive, but at least it lacks the pop/dance elements that make many of the other songs downright awful.
#4 Lucky Strike--Has a fast, driving tempo and beat and...well...that's about it. Passable, but definitely not one of the better offerings here.
#5 The Man Who Never Lied--Pretty good. Sounds more like a M5 song than many of the others, has a good beat without being too much into the dance/techno area and the vocals are typical Adam--in other words very good.
#6 Love Somebody--The music on this one is ok, but the lyrics are really too cliche to be taken seriously.

Maroon 5's "Moves Like Jagger", an ultra catchy Disco/Pop smash breathed new life into the band. Their new album "Overexposed" revisits the disco quite a few times and despite trying hard to be likeable, falls slightly short of catchy tunes.

Opening is the reggae-ish "One More Night", followed by "Payphone" with martial beats, quietly pulsing synths, and a highly unnecessary rap by Wiz Khalifa. "Daylight" is nice mid tempo guitar Pop a la U2/Coldplay, while following is the propulsive thumping "Lucky Strike" with buzzing synths, a highlight. Other standouts are the groovy "Lady Killer" (with a nice falsetto-sung chorus), the spare piano ballad "Sad", and the stomping pair of "Tickets" and "Doin' Dirt" (both with a Euro Disco feel). Closing is the absolutely gorgeous pulsing ballad "Beautiful Goodbye" with Adam Levine giving a soothing emotive performance - this wouldn't sound out of place on any of their earlier albums.

The bonus tracks are disappointing really, especially "Wipe Your Eyes", which despite featuring an interesting Amadou and Mariam sample just goes nowhere. Much better is the cover of Prince's "Kiss" which is redone as swinging Blues, features a fab lengthy guitar solo, and is rather fun.

A motley collection it might be, but not bad at all.
