    New hooks, new tricks, top notch production

    Posted .

    4.5 stars Here I am, surprised again by the Jonas Brothers. What an outstanding offering. Before I go any further, I want to explain my ranking system. I'm not comparing this CD to Abbey Road, Dark Side of the Moon, or even Thriller. I'm placing it into its intended category: young boy bands making pop music. Then I assign it a rating, 1-5 stars, based on how well I believe they represented their genre of music. And boy (pun intended), are they making good pop music. I came upon the Jonas Brothers last year when I saw their last CD debut in the top 5 on Billboard. As always with a group or performer for which I'm unfamiliar, I checked them out and saw that they were "Hanson-ish". As Hanson, mostly full grown, had released a terrific and highly underrated CD (Underneath) not too long ago, I was interested to see if Jonas Brothers was another Hanson in the making. I sampled a few tracks, liked what I heard, downloaded it, and instantly loved it. I was, and still am surprised by the maturity evident in their music (if not always their lyrics). When they announced a new album, so close upon the heels of Jonas Brothers, I was worried that they were moving too quickly, especially as I read that they had been on tour, filmed a movie, and apparently did at least one hundred million different things between then and now. When they announced that that they would be releasing four singles off the CD prior to its release, I thought they were insane. Most bands have one commercially appealing single, if they're lucky, and if they're phenomenally talented, they'll have several. I hadn't made the jump yet to thinking that the JBs were quite that talented. The first song, "Burnin' Up" was a great song, musically, though again the lyrics were suspect, and the video (sorry guys) was really, really cheesy. "Pushing Me Away" was a good song, but it didn't elicit the number of listens that "Burnin' Up" did. Still, I thought it was a commercially viable single. The third was "Tonight," and while that wasn't my favorite of the bunch, I still liked it. It has good guitar work, and a strong, driving beat. With that driving beat, though, I was somewhat concerned that they were leaning toward that style. We've seen it on a few of their songs already. "A Little Bit Longer" went a long way toward quelling any concerns I had, as it was very different from anything I've heard from them in the past (I am not familiar with their first CD, and wish it would be re-released). It seemed strange to listen to Nick singing a song about his diabetes, especially with the clichéd line, "you don't know what you've got until it's gone," normally reserved for human relationships, but that strangeness wore off quickly, and I found the song very touching - especially after I found the lyrics online (being a bit hard of hearing, I rely on seeing the lyrics, and often tend to judge music first on the music, second on lyrics - odd because I'm a writer...). And now the whole CD is here. My other concern, that they would be releasing the only songs worth listening to, thus making the CD a downer, was blown away with the first chords of BB Good. Really excellent song, amazing beat, silly but fun lyrics, and the guitar work reminiscent of some of the 70s stadium bands like Queen or Journey, with great keyboard accompaniment. And their ability to craft insanely addictive hooks is so evident here. I haven't been able to get the chorus of this song out of my mind all day. Lovebug, too, was a standout. It had a touch of bluegrass to it, reminding me somewhat of Michelle Shocked combined with the calmer sensibilities of "Anyone Else But You", from the movie Juno. I thought the talking in the song was funny - unlike others, it didn't throw me off, but felt organic. The rest of the CD is strong too. They've really grown, musically, and that's good to see. They're not relying on old hooks or tricks, and are, for the most part, finding new ones. Now my concern is that they're over-saturating the market with everything JONAS, especially with the upcoming sitcom on Disney. Flames that burn too brightly when they're first lit sometimes are the quickest to die. It didn't happen to the Beatles, though, or their solo careers, so let's hope it doesn't happen with these guys. They're still very young, and they seem (well, Nick's the leader, and he seems) to have an innate ability to write music people want to listen to. I hope that they're able to stick to what they seem to best at: making great music that's easy to love.

    amazing

    Posted .

    so the first two jonas brothers cds were amazing. just simply amazing! songs such as "mandy", "sos", and " year 3000" kept everyone dancing and singing along. I know the jonas brothers new album " a little bit longer" will NOT disappoint! I've personally heard all the songs and i love ever single one! they explain teenagers and have a different song for every mood your in. My personal favorites are "love bug", "pushing me away", and " shelf". all wonderful songs! the only thing i would say was wrong with the cd is it ended TOO soon! i was ready for another 14 songs on the album! :) id absolutely recommend it!

    Pure Pop at Its Best and Worst

    Posted .

    The Jonas Brothers are sweeping the nation with their standard pop songs and admittedly, some of them are prettu fun. They are catchy, and they stick with you. But as with most overproduced Disney-oriented music of this nature, it grows a little thin, even by the short running time standards. Definately worth it if you are a pop music fan, but it most assuredly not for everyone.

    I waited 'A Little Bit Longer' and I am fine! :)

    1st off- I LOVE THE JONAS BROTHERS SO OF COURSE I HAVE THEIR BRAND NEW CD!!!! I love "Burnin' Up" it's the song ya know where people have NO idea who you really are but they think they do, and you like them anyway! "A Little Bit Longer" is soooo inspirational, even though we don't all have diabetes, we can still relate to this song, if we've ever had a problem in our life before. THIS CD IS AWESOME I would love it even more, but I still need to learn all the songs!!!!!

    BEST CD EVER.

    Posted .

    I got this CD the day it came out, and I have listened to it every day since. I think the music from A little bit longerr is way different than their older music. But i think it is a good different. The jonas brothers are amazingly awesome and this cd is just absolutly amazing and they have totally outdone themselves again. I would have to say it is very hard to choose a favorite song from this cd cause they are all amazing!!!!!!
