12 Songs, 42 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Maroon 5 is a pop-rock band and proud of it. On Overexposed, it embraces the genre's versatility, collaborating with artists from a broad spectrum of sounds. Pittsburgh’s hometown hero Wiz Khalifa raps about envious scrubs who hate on his success—a stark contrast to Adam Levine’s romantic take on the idea of ringing up the object of his desire on “Payphone.” Maroon 5 also joins forces with Max Martin, Benny Blanco, and OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder.

What Happened?

I am actually obsessed with maroon 5 album Songs about Jane because that album was pure maroon 5 sound. this album is infused with some sort of pop sound that isnt maroon 5 at all. I was actually kinda depressed when i heard these songs cause this isnt maroon 5...this is another generic pop band. I really hope that maroon 5 will go back to their old sound. dont u guys remember she will be loved, this love, the sun, sunday morning? all these amazing song? does anyone agree that this does not in the slightest bit sound like that amazing band?
still love maroon 5 and im super obsessed so no hate for this im just saying how i feel as a true maroon 5 lover.

Why change what was working???

I love Maroon 5 so much that I overlook most of the bad language. The radio would be droning song to song and then a Maroon 5 sound would come on and you noticed a difference, you actually stopped to listen.
From "Sunday Morning", "Harder to Breath", Give a little More", "Give me Something to Believe" and "Misery" they all evoke emotion and draw you in.
"Moves Like Jaggar" was a fun switch and "Payphone" was okay (rap?) well, okay for that song, but I didn't realized that they were changing their whole sound, to that type of automatic, press the button on your keyboard music.
So except for "Sad" and "Beautiful Goodbye" which are CLOSE (but not spot on) to the sound I fell in love with, OVEREXPOSED is OVER electronic, OVER robotic, and just constant background noise (more droning).
Where is the depth of emotion that makes Adam... well Adam? Their lyrics used to sound like love, now they just sound like sex (casual sex).
It's almost like Maroon 5 deceided "we've arrived" and so they just call it in. They don't need all that background noise and the guest singers. Guys... bring back your raw emotion (happy, sad, fast, slow) but don't just jump into the machine... yuk!
