Come and get it, Maroon 5 is back and serving it up hot. Thanks to "The Voice" Adam Levine has kept his band on everybody's mind.  Plus, some old standby's have stepped up with fresh music.

1.) Maroon 5 "Overexposed" -The music critics across the board do not seem to thrilled with this latest release, but Maroon 5 fans will be ecstatic. I have said as a general rule that they get better and better  with every new c.d. So many bands sound the same in every song, but you have to give Maroon 5 credit for trying to change things up a bit, and take a chance on a different sound. I love it. Check out Maroon 5's Payphone video below. {Caution Explicit Lyrics}

2.) Linkin Park "Living Things"-You gotta love these guys and their mass appeal. For some one like me who is generally a pop/R&B lover, I have always loved this band. Stay tuned to Mix 108 to catch their newest single "Burn it Down".

3.) Casey Abrams ("American Idol" season 10 finalist)     "Casey Abrams"- Like all contestants from any of these shows proceed with caution. You may have loved them on the show, but on an album is a whole 'nother story. Preview some tracks before you purchase.

4.) R. Kelly "Write Me Back"-He is back....critics are raving about the old school sound that few artists can pull off. Hopefully with his legal woes behind him R.Kelly will get back on top and stay there.
