Misery
Oh-yeah, oh-yeah So scared of breaking it that you won't let it bend And I wrote two hundred letters I will never send Sometimes these cuts are so... See the rest of the song lyrics

  1. Positive: 2 out of 10
  2. Negative: 0 out of 10
  1. Some of the cuts may not sink their hooks in immediately, but track for track Hands All Over is Maroon 5's best album, capturing their character and craft in a cool, sleek package.
  2. Hands All Over reveals less about who frontman Adam Levine is than did Maroon 5's previous records; too often the songs cleave to opaque generalities.
  3. Really this is lead singer Adam Levine's show. Thus, the band's success lives and dies with his delivery. That delivery remains technically sound, though as a whole, the band underwhelms here.
  4. The rude guitar sleaze of Hands All Over, or the cocky glam-stomp in Stutter's verses show a band who are really at their best when they play pop music like the sleazy rockers they clearly are. In Adam Levine's mind, at least.
  5. It's an accomplished record for singer Adam Levine and his faceless group, even if the whole affair sometimes sounds clinical in its approach.
  6. Hands, competent and studio-sleek as it is, too often begs for a fresher muse.
  7. It's hard to imagine how Hands All Over could have been any more underwhelming. In truth the only exceptional thing about it is just how average it is.

Moves Like Jagger is a FANTASTIC song, but there are not a ton of songs on the album where you can say the same. There are a few catchy beats but overall this album is only decent for it's time.

The more you can listen to the cd the more you love it, but there still one thing missing and i don't know if it is the spark that the "It Won't Be Soon Before Long" had. Its a 7 for me. Expand
