Maroon 5: Overexposed


EEEEEEEEE! :cheesy: :heart:


Given that Adam Levine had before said Maroon 5 was likely to disband after "Hands All Over" and the subsequent tour, I'm stupidly excited for this one. While I personally like "Moves Like Jagger," I can only hope that LP4 doesn't take that and apply it throughout the whole album. Let's hope it's as diverse as Adam makes it out to be. June needs to hurry up! :bomb:


EDIT: Actually, having thought about it, I think "Valtari" by Sigur Rós might hold me until then. :wacko:

^ I've been meaning to check out Django Django myself. Since you recommend it, I'll take a listen.


Speaking of recommendations. The Silicone Veil. Susanne the Norwegian goddess.


Oh. My. GOD.
