Rockers Maroon 5 have us wanting for more on their new CD, Overexposed. The CD is a fun, fresh album worth plenty of summer play. As Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine says, “Overexposed is definitely one of our most diverse and poppiest albums yet. We had a great time recording it. I can’t wait for our fans to hear the record, as well as hitting the road to play it live for everyone later this year.” Guitarist James Valentine added, “‘Moves Like Jagger’ was the first time we ever worked with an outside writer, so we decided to try it some more on this record. At this point in our career I think it was a good thing to completely mix up our process and it yielded good results, as well as a more collaborative spirit within the band. We wanted to make something that sounded contemporary with the elements of a lot of early eras of pop music. This is our most "pop" record ever and we weren’t shy about really going for it.”
Our verdict: Back to disco-pop-rock with an infectious beat.
