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.Read more ›
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 listened to this album only once or twice, and it was probably the first album I was okay with getting rid of when thinning out. I prefer Joe with his brothers. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Andrea J.
