Best Maroon 5 Albums


The Top TenXW

1Songs About Jane

I mean, it was before they became ridiculously famous, so they weren't afraid to take risks with their lyrics, and they were more on the rock side than the pop. All I know is that it really was their best album, and may be one of the best of the 21st century.

I love the way it is awesome but it doesn't work in front of the number four

2It Won't Be Soon Before Long

Songs About Jane may be slightly better, but this album is a perfect mix of modern and older Maroon 5. It also helps that this album carries the most influence from The Police of any album, including my favorite song "Won't Go Home Without You".

This album is highly underrated. If you dig deep into the album, you'll find some influence from bands like The Police or The Outfield. Great album.

This record, along with Songs About Jane, deserve both the first and second place.

Their last good album! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

Wait. Daylight, Payphone, One More Night and MORE! Why is this the 4th?

Why is this last on the list? Personally this is probably my favourite

I think it would be in second place

4Hands All Over

Best Maroon 5 Album: Hands All Over Hands Down!

In MY opinion, Hands All Over is Maroon 5's absolute BEST album ever, with the more bluesy Songs About Jane following right behind. With their versatility of their sound over the years, I feel this was the era of their perfection. This album is just pure musical genius. Each track on this album is extremely catchy and if given the chance would definitely top the charts. They're very memorable and enjoyable to listen to. From the upbeat ear-worms "Give A Little More," "Don't Know Nothing," "Get Back in My Life," "Stutter," "Never Gonna Leave This Bed," and "I Can't Lie," to the emotional beauty of "How," "Runaway," and "Just A Feeling," Hands All Over is truly spectacular.

How anyone could dislike this album is completely beyond my comprehension. The deluxe album is definitely worth getting- it includes "Last Chance", and ...more

Smooth, sexy, and soulful sounds dominate this Maroon 5 effort, an album which is primarily driven by snappy pop experimentation and intricate electronica. - JR302

This album and Overexposed are pretty dead even honesty.

Surprisingly suits my taste in music!

This album is awesome! It's all the songs from Songs About Jane but they have longer guitar solos, they are more complex, and there is an early version of Wasted Years! - SammySpore


Yeah Maroon 5? Screw you. You said this album was going to have a darker feel like Songs About Jane. Um... if you actually think this is like Songs About Jane you have something wrong with your head. This is actually the farthest you've ever got from SAJ sound. Now let me just say I don't hate overexposed. It's... okay. It has good catchy melodies. My favourite songs from it are Beautiful Goodbye, Daylight and Payphone. But V? Haha. Only about 4 of the songs have good melodies. I remember lots of songs from Overexposed. This album is just so unmemorable. I can only remember about 5 songs from it. Maps is a good song though. It sounds like something from Hands All Over. It Was Always You and Sugar are ok. I dislike Animals. And the rest of the songs... pretty unmemorable and bad. In Feelings, when adam sings the chorus. It sounds like someones pushing a sharp pencil in his side. Hopefully maroon 5 will split up and the other guys of maroon 5 will start their own band without adam. I ...more - SammySpore

This album isn't bad or that far of a cry from works they've done in the past. However, the sloppy and sometimes profane lyrics and instrumentation on songs like "Feelings" (the worst song they've ever done), "Animals", "New Love" and "This Summer's Gonna Hurt" (which would've been a cooler song with a less try-hard chorus) are pretty big turn offs. However, gems like "Coming Back For You", "Maps" (which has influence from another one of mine and Maroon 5's favorites, The Police) and "It Was Always You" still hold true to a unique Maroon 5 sound and could've sat alongside a few tracks on their second album It Won't Be Soon Before Long (heck, so could "Sugar" or "In Your Pocket"). Overall a good album, but it's their worst/most disappointing one to date. Hope the next one from my favorite modern band is better.

I will give my opinion from all of the songs from this terrible, terrible album.

Maps - Reminds me of the Overexposed days, great lead single.

Animals - Decent single, but really messed up and nothing without J. Cole.

Sugar - Pretty good, but RIDICULOUSLY overplayed. Also he is WAY too loud on the chorus.

This Summer's Gonna Hurt - Awful, terrible song with pointlessly profane lyrics.

Feelings - The fact that this became a single last month shows Maroon 5 don't know what they're doing anymore. Screeching vocals, one of the weakest choruses in history, and trying to hard to be edgy, which is nullified by the bubblegum beat.

It Was Always You - Easily the best on the album.

Unkiss Me - The lyrics aren't bad, but the fact that the production and instrumentation are possibly the worst I've ever heard brings it to my least favorite on the album.

New Love - Great electronic feel and good lyrics, a highlight.

S&C - What is this? ...more - WonkeyDude98

When I heard Overexposed, I thought Maroon 5 would never make an album that was worse. I was wrong.
