EDITORS’ NOTES

Maroon 5’s third studio album plays with a much tighter groove than their preceding albums. With a stronger approach to their take on blue-eyed-soul, most of the songs comprising Hands All Over are danceable party hits. “Misery” opens with airtight rhythms rolling underneath contagiously catchy melodies. Even the fat rhythm of “Give a Little More” bounces under stripped-down elements keeping the tune tight and lean. Singer Adam Levine’s performances are tasteful and taut throughout. Exercising more restraint than on past recordings, he lets the melodies and rhythms drive these songs. Check out “Never Gonna Leave This Bed” where at any moment he could succumb to the kind of vocal gymnastics Steve Perry brought to Journey — but he keeps his cool and lets the song work its own magic on the listener. This is not to say that Hands All Over is without its pizzazz. Standout jam “Moves Like Jagger” pays homage to the stage presence of the Rolling Stones’ frontman with glimmering flourishes flying from an irresistible four-on-the-floor beat as Christina Aguilera trims the tune with plenty of diva flash.

Best Maroon 5 Album!

Know every single song by heart and it is my favorite album! This album deserves more love than it apparently has...

This album is awful. I don't understand how anyone could be a real Maroon 5 fan. I understand being a fan of their songs, but being a fan of the band is seemingly impossible. Maroon 5 should just release a good single ever 2 years. Then it can be overplayed on the radio for those years, and by the time everyone is sick of it they will release another. Misery is good, and that's just about it.

Best Maroon 5 Album: Hands All Over Hands Down!

Dogsrule555

In MY opinion, Hands All Over is Maroon 5's absolute BEST album ever, with the more bluesy Songs About Jane following right behind. With their versatility of their sound over the years, I feel this was the era of their perfection. This album is just pure genius- GENIUS!! Each track on this album is extremely catchy and if given the chance would definitely top the charts. They're very memorable and enjoyable to listen to. From the upbeat ear-worms "Give A Little More," "Don't Know Nothing," "Get Back in My Life," "Stutter," "Never Gonna Leave This Bed," and "I Can't Lie," to the emotional beauty of "How," "Runaway," and "Just A Feeling," Hands All Over is truly spectacular.
How anyone could dislike this album is completely beyond my comprehension- seriously!! The deluxe album is definitely worth getting- it includes "Last Chance", and amazing and extremely catchy song, "No Curtain Call," another wonderful song, as well as acoustic versions of "Misery" and "Never Gonna Leave This Bed" and a simply beautifully done cover of "If I Ain't Got You" originally by Alicia Keys.
This is REAL talent, people, REAL talent!! I personally think that Adam Levine has an amazing voice that I feel simply does not get enough credit. Plus these songs were written by him as well as his bandmates, since I know some people frown upon hiring co-writers. And unlike "It Won't Be Soon Before Long", these tracks aren't exclusively all about sex and are a tad more subtle (except Moves Like Jagger and Hands All Over). If you're looking for truly genuine and memorable pop rock music, I HIGHLY recommend this album. And if you're anything like me, you'll end up playing it every single day. :)

About Maroon 5

A mix of polished pop/rock and neo-soul made Maroon 5 one of the most popular bands of the new millennium, with songs like "This Love," "She Will Be Loved," and "Makes Me Wonder" all topping the charts worldwide. Previously, bandmates Adam Levine (vocals/guitar), Jesse Carmichael (keyboards), Mickey Madden (bass), and Ryan Dusick (drums) had spent the latter half of the '90s playing in Kara's Flowers, even releasing a debut album for Reprise Records while still attending high school. The record tanked, however, and Kara's Flowers found themselves dropped from Reprise's roster. After briefly attending college, the bandmates regrouped as Maroon 5, adding former Square guitarist James Valentine to the lineup and embracing a more R&B-influenced sound. Several years later, the quintet had officially risen to the forefront of pop music with Songs About Jane and It Won't Be Soon Before Long, both of which went multi-platinum.

Songs About Jane propelled the band into the mainstream, but the album was not an immediate hit. Octone Records had signed the newly christened Maroon 5 in 2001, and the debut album Jane received a lukewarm response upon its release in June 2002. "Harder to Breathe" became a radio staple 17 months later and was soon followed by the omnipresent "This Love," whose steamy video (featuring frontman Levine and a barely clothed girlfriend) wooed the TV-watching crowds at MTV. Songs About Jane finally entered the Billboard Top Ten in August 2004, more than two years after the album's release, and follow-up singles like "She Will Be Loved" and "Sunday Morning" helped the album move over 2.7 million copies by year's end.

Maroon 5 toured exhaustively in support of Jane's slow-burning success, issuing two stopgap recordings -- 2004's 1.22.03.Acoustic and 2005's Live Friday the 13th -- while traveling the world alongside the likes of the Rolling Stones and John Mayer. Their schedule was especially trying on percussionist Dusick, who sustained wrist and shoulder injuries and was often unable to play. By fall 2006, Dusick had been officially replaced by Matt Flynn (the former drummer for Gavin DeGraw), and the revised band released its sophomore effort in May 2007. It Won't Be Soon Before Long proved to be less popular than its predecessor (which had sold more than four million copies in the U.S. alone), but it still enjoyed double-platinum certification while spinning off the chart-topping single "Makes Me Wonder." Maroon 5 had cemented their status as pop/rock heavyweights, and they now had the connections to prove it. Released in late 2008, Call and Response: The Remix Album reinterpreted the band's catalog with remixes by influential producers like Mary J. Blige, Mark Ronson, and Pharrell Williams.

Between 2008 and 2010, the band worked with a different producer -- veteran rock/country architect Robert John "Mutt" Lange -- on a third studio album, Hands All Over, which was released in September 2010. Although it was kept from the top of the album charts, it went platinum. Also, the following year, it received a big boost when Levine began appearing as a judge on the NBC reality television talent competition The Voice. That same year, Hands All Over was re-released with the single "Moves Like Jagger," featuring Levine's The Voice co-judge Christina Aguilera; the single promptly hit the top of the charts. In 2012, Carmichael revealed that he was taking time off from performing with Maroon 5 and would be replaced by touring keyboardist PJ Morton.

In April of 2012, the band teased the release of its fourth studio album with "Payphone," a single featuring Wiz Khalifa that hit number two. The resulting album, Overexposed, also reached number two, featuring production from a bevy of name producers including Ryan Tedder, Max Martin, Benny Blanco, and more. A second single from the album, the reggae-tinged "One More Night," topped the charts not long after its release in June, and stayed at the top long enough to become the band's most successful showing to date. Two further singles also reached the Top Ten, "Daylight" and "Love Somebody."

During 2013, Levine continued to appear on The Voice, and also made appearances in the television drama American Horror Story, as well as the music-based dramatic film Begin Again. The band also hit the studio to record songs for a fifth studio album, aptly titled V, which saw keyboardist Jesse Carmichael return to the fold after a brief hiatus. Released in September 2014, V debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart and produced several Top Ten singles including "Maps," "Animals," and "Sugar." Two more singles followed in 2015 with "This Summer's Gonna Hurt Like a Motherf*****" and "Feelings." Also in 2015, Maroon 5 released their first hits collection, The Singles. The single "Don't Wanna Know," featuring rapper Kendrick Lamar, appeared in 2016 and peaked at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It was later revealed to be the first single from their forthcoming sixth LP. A second collaborative single, "Cold," featuring Future, was released in early 2017, with "What Lovers Do" appearing before the November release of Red Pill Blues. In 2018 the band issued a remix of Red Pill Blues' "Girls You Like," featuring an appearance by Cardi B. ~ Andrew Leahey
