The now-adult Jonas Brothers – Kevin, Joe and Nick – are making grown-and-sexy music without losing its kiddish charm.
The band’s fifth studio album – its first since 2009’s Lines, Vines And Trying Times, and the solo careers of Nick and Joe – find the brothers tackling more risqué, emotional turf than they did in their past.
There’s a reason that the irresistible vocal harmonies, sumptuous melody and stop-starting rhythm of Sucker gave the Jonas’ the first No. 1 single of its career. The same can be said of the vocal unity that fuels the down tempo Cool, and its fizzy guitars and the ardent pop of Every Single Time.
Plus, anyone looking for Nick and Joe to up-the-ante on whose got the creamier falsetto can listen in to I Believe and Joe’s steamy Hesitate, each written for that Jonas’ respective brides. – A.D. Amorosi/The Philadelphia Inquirer/Tribune News Service
