Sound — 9
Buying this album, I personally didn't expect much from it; I thought of maybe 4 or 5 good songs, and then just album filler. But I was wrong. I was REALLY wrong. What I got was a 18 song album full of amazing songs. Maroon 5 took the best of "It Wont Be Soon Before Long" and added some funky and jazzy touches to the mix. All the songs have a similar sound, but still different enough for you to recognize. They're all catchy as hell. Only a couple of songs aren't as good, and the album ends with a live cover version of Alicia Key's "If I Ain't Got You", and a cover of Queen's "Crazy little Thing Called Love"...Yeah, not that good...

Adam Levine's voice is great as always. Lyrics are real catchy... There's really nothing else to say. They're great.
Overall Impression — 9
This is Maroon 5 at its best; better than they're last album, VERY few points behind "Songs About Jane". Maroon 5 gave us such an amazing album; such great songs, such as "Misery", "Give A Little More", "Stutter", "Don't Know Nothing", "Never Gonna Leave This Bed" "Get Back In My Life", "Last Chance", "No Curtain Call", and the list goes on. Only a couple of disappointments, such as "Out Of Goodbyes" feat. Lady Antebellum, which has a country sound that doesn't fit either singer. Once again, the album is very complete. With an amazing sound and great lyrics. Thats more than enough for me. A must buy for fans of the band.
