Deluxe edition includes five bonus tracks. 2010 release, the third album from the Pop superstars. Hands All Over was recorded in Switzerland, where the band joined forces with legendary record producer Robert "Mutt" Lange. The album, a killer hybrid of Rock, Pop, Funk, and R&B, showcases the band's considerable strengths: buoyant, unforgettable melodies, sleek, stylish grooves, charged lyrics about turbulent relationships, and crisp, dynamic performances. Features a collaboration with Country superstars Lady Antebellum.

This terrible M-Piece-3 wouldnt have gotten any airtime if "Pay for Play" wasnt still alive an well.
Think about it...they come out of nowhere, overnight success. Was it a band that started playing in small clubs for $50 bar gigs? No. NEVER any history, just manufactured bands, boy-bands, girl-bands, and Milli-Vanilli-style CRAP like this.
No wonder so many people wont pay for music. THIS IS WHY. STOP USING AUTOTUNE AND GET REAL SINGERS!
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...
Maroon 5's new album Hands All Over is okay. In my opinion, It Won't Be Soon Before Long was superior in the sense that it had more bite to both the lyrics and the instrumentals. It was sexy and made you move in spite of yourself. If that album was a tiger, then this one is its purring kitten cousin.
"Misery", the single from the album, probably has the most life and funkiness of the conglomerate. This is an example of what we have come to expect from Maroon 5. It translates well into an acoustic track, (included separately on the album) and Adam Levine's vocals really shine when backed with just hand claps and faint guitar.
"Last Chance" and "If I Ain't Got You" are the live tracks of choice for this album. "Not Coming Home" from Songs About Jane was preferable to me, personally. "If I Ain't Got You" is a cover of, yes, the Alicia Keys hit. The band doesn't do a bad job with it. I'd prefer this track to "Last Chance", which is a rather vanilla pop track.
Some of the better tracks here would include the title track, "Never Gonna Leave This Bed" and "Get Back in My Life". These seem to have a bit more passion behind the emotions and invite us in. The acoustic version of "Never Gonna Leave This Bed" appearing later on in the album helps it come into its own, while "Don't Know Nothing" carries a bit of the old-school Motown sound.
The band's cover of Queen's "Crazy Little Thing About Love" is surprisingly well done. It's not Freddie Mercury, but it'll do. "Just a Feeling" is a sweet break-up ballad whereas "Give a Little More" reminds me of the days of disco.
Lady Antebellum guest stars on "Out of Goodbyes" which seems like quite the odd pairing, doesn't it? The song isn't awful but hearing the country twang behind Levine's vocals is something I'd definitely need to accept over time. Hillary Scott and Levine sing quite well together, though, I must admit.
This album is definitely lighter on its feet. It possesses a lot less funk and is a bit of a sleeper. If someone was new to Maroon 5 and asked for suggestions, I wouldn't start them off with this one.
