In 2008, Maroon 5 released a remix album with the help of several different DJs and producers. The group then spent most of the following two years working with a different producer -- famous rock/country-pop architect Robert John "Mutt" Lange -- on Hands All Over, which marked the band's third studio offering of rhythmic, soulful pop songs.
Rolling Stone - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he dozen songs on HANDS ALL OVER are models of craftsmanship and efficiency, each clocking in at under four minutes and delivering verses catchier than other bands' choruses."
Uncut (magazine) (p.94) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he band are old hands at pounding hammer-down hooks into pleasingly phat grooves -- a skill that remains emphatically apparent here."
