An album that kicks and stomps on the devoted fans who loved the soul and funk vibes they've displayed over their career, replacing them with throw away beats that just don't belong in any Maroon 5 song. Overexposed is the perfect title for this album as it feels uninspired, and over produced and has little to no soul. Levine's affair needs to end quick before it burns away.
Maroon 5 turns their back on the fans who followed their blues-rock-pop style and turns to generic pop that is instantly forgettable. The standout tracks are SOLELY the ones where they show evidence of their roots in pop-rock, rather than synthetic, artificial pop
Throughout the years so many bands have been accused of 'selling out' that it has become a somewhat meaningless phrase. SCREW IT! I'm using it here. Actually if you looked up 'selling out' in the dictionary this album should be there (true story). A couple of good songs here and there don't make up for the incredible slap in the face this record is to even the casual fan.
I remember when you could tell this band had some rock influences. Obviously none of them survived to see this album be released. Furthermore, there's no good pop influences either, because this is so uninspired and vapid, it makes me wonder if they're becoming a commercial product.
