I feel dizzy. My stomach is starting an argument. My weight is weighing me down. And I’m restless. My eyes are blinded by too much sunlight. There’s too much thoughts flooding in. Resolutions. Restructuring. Release Retrieval. Too much for a restart. #ThisiswhatIhateaboutstartoftheyear
02:23 A.M. My two dogs are peacefully sleeping beside me except…well me. 0.o
Staying up late until morning isn’t really unusual for me, - especially during weekends -but I think what came as a surprise is the fact that I’m now quite affected by 3 cups of coffee (and it’s not even black, just my usual 90%creamer/milk and 10% coffee mix). So here I am, still wide awake (o__o)” despite all the browsing (and giggling over someone’s pics ^^) I did for the past few hours. And I can’t seem to stop.
So before I get lost in my own labyrinth of senselessness, I decided to post an album review. The original plan a few minutes ago is that I will create a separate blog for that, but then doubting my capability to sustain it with regular posts led to a conclusion that it’ll be pointless - based on the frequency of posts I have here.
Album Review of the Week:
Overexposed by Maroon 5
This band is one of those bands I have been listening to ever since they’ve started. Considering that I have their complete albums, along with the B-Sides, in my playlist for like a week now makes it no wonder why this album becomes my first ‘kill’ for an album review ^^.
The title itself, ‘Overexposed’, best describes the album in comparison with their previous records. Sadly, for those who fell for the band 10 years ago thanks to the bitter and angst-driven tracks like Harder to Breathe and This Love (including myself), that sort of sound isn’t longer present in this one. Somehow, tracks from this album got quite a bit overexposed from all the pop-rock/confused-candy-funk genre they’ve been through that if not for Adam’s distinct voice, you’ll probably think you’re listening to another band or some sort of Adam’s side-project. But then I guess, if you’ve listened to their previous album before this, I think we both agree on seeing this ‘shift’ coming. ^.^
Other than that, the rest remained Maroon 5 style, especially the songwriting - the songs’ theme, which is 93% of Adam singing about this girl who’s been consistently mean (and at times evil ^o^) to him yet he can’t resist because her “…perfect little body m-m-makes him fall apart” and 7% of Adam’s other confused feelings about his relationship(s?) - which I think what the fans loved about their songs in the first place.
Also, in my opinion, the genre shift didn’t matter that much at all. They’ve compensated the lack of alternative rock vibe from this album by cleverly infusing the genres they chose with their own signature sound - like the track ‘One More Night’ which started with a cool reggae beat, and ‘Ladykiller’ that reminds me mostly of MJs songs. Overall, this may not be their best album for me, but I’ll definitely include this in my earcandy collection XD
Payphone - Adam singing the S**t and F***ing word in the chorus..need I say more? ^^”
Ladykiller - A first of its kind when it comes to the storytelling; Adam’s pays tribute to MJ in the falsetto part.
Sad - It’s just Adam and the piano. Hearing him sing in this track will make you feel like giving him a hug (and tying him to your bed eventually ^^)
PS: Deluxe Edition of this album includes bonus tracks like ‘Moves like Jagger’, ‘Payphone’ remixes and their own rendition of Prince’s ‘Kiss’.
It’s already 04:41 AM
Time for the wakey wakey exercise! xD
