Album Review: Maroon 5

    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. And yet as simple as the equation is, Maroon 5 still managed to miss the mark entirely in their attempt to write a pop record. Overexposed sounds like the band set out to write an album of singles and fell short. The band enlisted heavyweights like Max Martin, Benny Blanco, Ryan Tedder, Shellback and a dozen others to help produce the release. Even with all that backing Overexposed still doesn't pack the same punch as the band's single "Moves Like Jagger" or their debut Songs About Jane. It is a collection of bland pop songs.
