    [The second version of Just in Love is] a minor blip on an otherwise immensely entertaining and enjoyable pop record--inspired, tons of fun, and positioning Joe Jonas as a worthy successor to Justin.

    Fastlife largely favors the FutureSex--"I'm loving that frame," Joe drools on "Make You Mine"--yet it's the LoveSounds, as on gorgeous ballad "Sorry," that most impress.

    Jonas isn't the most flexible vocalist for this kind of material, but he manages to convince that there's real hunger.

    Jonas certainly can't match someone like Timberlake in terms of a defined aesthetic or presence, but at least he and his team had the smarts to enlist producers who know how to construct solid pop songs.

    As a vocalist and a presence, Jonas is a flop.

    Sadly enough, beyond the two singles he released, I didn't like any of the other songs. They all seemed generic and over-processed. It was a true bummer to be because I was looking forward to some good catchy pop songs. His voice sounds good, the tracks aren't just that good though. Maybe his sophomore album will have a better producer. Full Review »

    I think this album was absolutely amazing! When I first heard that Joe was doing a solo album, I wasn't that excited because I didn't really like Nick's album that much. But Joe really took me by surprise with this record. Almost all the tracks on this are amazing, the only track I didn't like as much was Love Slayer. Great album and I hope to hear more from him :) Fav Tracks - Sorry, Make You Mine, Take It And Run, Just In Love (Remix), and All This Time. Full Review »
