The latest in music

This weeks pick is the fantastic Hands All Over from Maroon 5   -

The opening track and lead-off single on Maroon 5's new CD "Misery" is a deadringer for their earlier hit "This love", not a bad thing as it is an incredibly catchy danceable Pop/Rock/Soul song. The groovy "Give a little more" (with MJ-style yelps at the end), "Get back in my life" and "Runaway" are more of the same.

Title track "Hands all over" is an edgy rocker, while "Never gonna leave this bed" is a mellow rocker. The ballad "I can't lie" is retro soul with a Motown feel, while "Out of goodbyes" is a lovely Country/pop ballad with Lady Antebellum not unlike what you'd find on a Shania Twain CD. No surprises there seeing as the album is produced by Twain's producer/husband Robert John "Mutt" Lange.

The deluxe edition features 5 additional tracks including acoustic versions of "Never gonna leave this bed" (sounding much better and making one realise how over-embelished the original is) and "Misery", as well as a live cover of Alicia Keys "If I ain't got you" which is faithful to the original but nice to hear it sung by a guy.

"Hands all over" is a far superior album to their last release "It won't be soon before long" which was rather patchy, and manages to recapture the magic of their superb debut.

Product Description

DELUXE EDITION - Includes 5 Bonus Tracks
imageMaroon 5 is back with its third studio album entitled Hands All Over, produced by Robert John "Mutt" Lange (AC/DC, Foreigner, The Cars). The album, a killer hybrid of rock, pop, funk, and R&B, showcases the band's considerable strengths: buoyant, unforgettable melodies, sleek, stylish grooves, charged lyrics about turbulent relationships, and crisp, dynamic performances. Band member Jesse Carmichael comments on the new album, "Mutt really helped us play to the best of our ability. And it drove us to be bigger and better than ever. Everything he does is huge." Huge is a great way to describe Hands All Over, starting with the hard-rocking title track that is heavier than anything Maroon 5 has ever done. Says Valentine, "It doesn't sound like anything we've ever done." Another stylistic departure for the band is "Out of Goodbyes," a stunning country ballad that features musical and vocal contributions from Nashville chart-toppers Lady Antebellum. "We've always loved country music", Levine says, "and they brought that necessary twang to it with the lap steels, ambient guitar, and Hilary Scott's pretty voice. Other highlights include the deeply groovy "Don't Know Much About That," the propulsive "Stutter" ("a great showcase for Adam's voice," notes Valentine), and "Misery," which will thrill long-time Maroon 5 fans with its funky guitars and high-stepping melody. Be sure to get your hands all over this unbelievable album.
