  1. While not every song is up to a "Moves Like Jagger" or "Payphone" standard hook-wise, the co-writers and producers never stopped breaking into new grounds for the band throughout the record.

    It's top-shelf radio sucrose.

    It's when he deviates from the plastic norm that he actually sounds most awkward.

    On much of the album, which never quite finds a balance between rock grit and dance-pop glitz, Maroon 5 barely sound like a band at all.

    Overexposed is not a great album, but that doesn't mean it's not interesting. What we're hearing is the band actually learning to have fun again, and with any luck, they'll only get better from here.
  6. 50
    'Sad' is an Adele-apeing weepie, 'Payphone' has a guest rap from Wiz Khalifa, and both 'Lucky Strike' and 'Fortune Teller' feature cod-dubstep breakdowns.
  7. The sooner this bunch of plums fade back into obscurity, the better.

Overexposed is the perfect title for this album as it feels uninspired, and over produced and has little to no soul. Expand
