    As long as you forget that you're listening to the star of Camp rock 2: The Final Jam, it actually sounds pretty cool. [14/21 Nov 2014, p.105]

    With a mix of urban-leaning tracks and more radio-ready Top 40 fare, the album shrewdly distances Jonas from his former band's straightforward pop-rock.

    His most mature and riskiest work to date.

    Nick Jonas is at its best when Jonas plays it straight, when he relies on his eternal Prince and Stevie Wonder fixations, which give him not only a fairly rich palette to draw from but provide him with a good direction to channel his melodic skills.

    For Jonas, the new sound works well: He's sweetly confident while singing about all the adult lust that he has been suppressing in his music for years.

    In what is quite possibly the biggest musical surprise of 2014, Nick Jonas pulls out most of the stops in his sophomore solo effort. TheIn what is quite possibly the biggest musical surprise of 2014, Nick Jonas pulls out most of the stops in his sophomore solo effort. The Deluxe version is by far the more superior, with the addition of three must-hear songs, including the haunting "Santa Barbara." Jonas puts his falsetto to good use in the majority of the tracks--while it can get a tad jarring in a bridge here and there ("Chains" is an example), it adds a layer of aural icing overall. "Push" is a stand out, with vocals reminiscent of Frank Ocean and Prince, Jonas shows he has the right stuff. The rather psychotic stalker anthem "I Want You" is a foot-stomper, while "Teacher" takes a whole new direction with its Prince-inspired backbeat and smooth vocals that bring Timberlake to mind (in a good way). This album is leaps and bounds ahead of his work with Jonas Brothers. It's easy to tell Nick Jonas has something to say musically, and you do want to hear it. Expand

Far from his days as a Jonas Brother, he discovered a way to show off his falsetto high notes, and great writing skills. He delivered one of the best Pop albums this year and didn't let influence himself by the current music trend. He carefully followed Prince and Stevie Wonder's path and succeed. Expand

Perfect use of falsetto. He balances funk, R&B and Pop in a wonderfully modern way. Emotional when he needs to be and gets me dancing at the same time! Expand
