I went into this blindly, not really being familiar with the Jonas Brothers, other than the fact that such a group existed. Rather, I took a chance based on interviews I read with Joe in which he described his new sound and the direction he wanted to take his music. His words caught my attention, and I must say, it's actually a pretty solid effort, to the point where I might say "Fastlife" is one of the better albums released this past year. (Though you'd never know it, based on its relatively poor chart performance, but oh well.)

More than once I've heard this CD compared to something Justin Timberlake might do, but to my ears Joe comes off as more of an Adam Lambert in training, especially vocally. There is the slightest underlying R&B vibe, true, but overall the record maintains a mainstream pop sound sprinkled with electro beats. It's not so harsh as to alienate or put off a segment of listeners, but it's enough to hold your interest and keep it fun and current. I'd say 80% of the disc is uptempo, with a handful of those songs venturing into club/dance territory, and a couple ballads mixed in for some good variety. Not a dud in the bunch, I assure you. As far as whether or not he really is "all grown up," well, this isn't exactly the most profound music you'll ever hear, but it does seem to have a bit more thought and substance than most other Top 40 these days. Plus he wrote or co-wrote most it himself, which is impressive.

Highlights for me include the trance-like "Love Slayer" and the futuristic "Kleptomaniac," but there's very likely something for everyone.

Upon first listen to Fastlife all I could think of was - "This sounds like Justin Timberlake's first CD." Oh how wrong was I! Yes, there are similarities, as there will be for pop music of this caliber, but this is one of those albums that grow on you gradually, track by track.

It really is refreshing to hear a more mature voice for the young Joe Jonas, but it's also great to hear him singing more "grown up" material than that bubble gum warehouse music he was forced to sing with his brothers. I think Mr. Jonas took the proper steps to move away from those types of tunes.

The title track is easily one of my favorite songs. Original beats and fine arrangements meant to be both sophisticated and fun at the same time.

Other standouts in my opinion are Just In Love, Love Slayer (which is begging for a house remix), Sorry is a very pleasant ballad. Take It and Run is near the end of the album and may be overlooked for those who only listen to the first few songs, but it is worth listening to and will bump in a club if given a chance.

All in all, I am glad that I didn't sleep on this release and gave it a chance. I would have missed out on some great tunes.

I got a chance to see Joe perform tracks from his "Fastlife" album in NYC before the album was released. I love that he has so many upbeat/dance tracks, which are the type of songs that Top 40 radio has been playing for some time now. My favorite tracks are "Love Slayer" and "Sorry." Let's hope he keeps releasing singles from this album and turning out hot videos like "Just In Love."

Joe Jonas really impresses on this album. From the instant he starts sing on "All this Time," you hear how much he's changed vocally since the last Jonas Brothers album. The vocal ability and complete change in musical style is a welcomed change. I appreciate every track on "Fast Life". Especially, "See No More" and "Make you Mine." The title track is pretty ridiculous, also. In a word, I have to say thanks. I'm thankful for Joe Jonas offering a really good album, and showing his growth as an artist.

When I saw that Joe had his new CD out, I wasn't sure it would actually be that great. I've "followed" the Jonas Brothers through Disney when my daughter liked them. So I thought the CD would be more of the same. But after reading some of the other reviews I decided to give it a try. Well all I have to say is Joe Jonas is all grown up. It's an awesome CD. Great dance music. There really isn't a song that I don't like. I would probably purchase more of his CDs in the future.

After seeing his interview on the Wendy Williams show, I decided to listen to the entire cd and I am glad I did not give into my reticence, usually when it comes to the Jonas name I often connect to disney and just write the things they do off as kids stuff, but this album is anything but kids play, the songs are well selected and even put in an order that gives the right amount of everything dance, ballads, etc. Mr. Jonas seems to have really put alot of thought into what he wanted to release to the public and when you listen to this album you will hear it in the music. I also kept hearing comparisions to Justin Timberlake, the only two I thought of are: both have disney ties and they both sing, but each is different, and after listening to this album, I won't be dismissive next time, I hope this is the first of many solo albums to come, along with group albums with his brothers, keep up the good work.
