CD review: Overexposed
What happened to Maroon 5? Where did the Rock band go and who are these crooning Pop singers in their place?
Those questions ought to have been asked soon after Christina Aguilera made an appearance on the band’s last big single, Moves Like Jagger. The track makes its presence felt here too, making sure fans recognise the direction Adam Levine and his team want to head toward.
There are a lot more producers in the mix too, which may explain the Reggae influence (One More Night), an obligatory Rap cameo (Payphone), one semi-rocker (Lucky Strike) and the ballad (Sad) that doesn’t quite work. It’s a mixed bag that annoys more than entertains. Better luck next time.
— Overexposed, Maroon 5, Universal, Rs 395.
