The three teenagers from New Jersey release a great pop punk album which has been lodged for months in the US charts yet, strangely, still shows no signs of a UK release. Their distinctive vocals and harmonies resonate throughout the album, which features some dance-rock grooves like "S.O.S", "Goodnight And Goodbye" and "Games". "When You Look Me In The Eyes" shows off a mellower pop rock sound and feels like a cross between Busted and Brian Adams! Talking of Busted, the Jonas Brothers have covered the Busted track "Year 3000" (that was their breakthrough US hit) and the album ends with their remake of Kim Wilde's "Kids In America" as "Kids Of The Future". Recording the project from beginning to end in a mere 21 days Jonas Brothers have delivered an album that's high-energy pop-punk overflowing with catchy hooks and muscular guitar licks. If you enjoy the genre and don't mind somewhat lightweight lyrics 'Jonas Brothers' is for you.
