Maroon 5's Overexposed is a pop album through and through. The lyrics focus on hard-hitting topics like dancing, crying and relationships. The songs feature all the bad rhymes that we have come to expect out of pop songs, like "it's like a cheap thriller/she's such a lady killer". Some songs (my guess would be "Beautiful Goodbye") will probably get some radio playtime, but they won't really have any lasting value beyond a summer hit. But that is all the nature of pop.
