Maroon 5 - Overexposed LP
180 Gram Vinyl
Overexposed is the fourth studio album by Maroon 5. The album was driven by the enormous success of the single 'Moves like Jagger'. Overexposed is a pop-rock album with dance-pop, disco, electropop, R&B and reggae influences. The album is a chock-full collection of undeniable, anthemic melodies. 'Moves like Jagger' served as the biggest influence for composing and writing most songs on Overexposed. Maroon 5 formed in Los Angeles, California. Before the current group was established, the original four members, Adam Levine (lead vocals, lead guitar), Jesse Carmichael (rhythm guitar, backing vocals) Mickey Madden (bass guitar) and Ryan Dusick (drums), formed a band known as Kara's Flowers in 1994, while they were still in high school. The band, which self-released an album called We Like Digging?, then signed to Reprise Records and released the album The Fourth World in 1997. After the album garnered a tepid response, the band parted ways with the record label and the members attended college. In 2001, the band changed it's image by adding guitarist James Valentine and pursuing a new direction under the name Maroon 5. At this point, Carmichael switched to playing keyboards, which has since become his main instrument in the band.
