Lines Vines and Trying Times is quite a growth from A Little Bit Longer and a complete 180 from It's About Time. The brothers really step it up with power pop numbers like Paranoid and Hey Baby and smooth ballads like Black Keys and Turn Right. The diversity on this album is admirable and a sophisticated departure from the teeny bopper tunes that is often associated with the Jonas Brothers.
World War III-a super fast paced tune that would feel at home on any pop/rock playlist
Paranoid - Embodies the boys' gift for scoring the perfect hook and a great first single. A real improvement from their last CD's first single, Burning Up
Fly With Me - Though it is a little sappy, it's amazingly catchy. Even for you older listeners.
Poison Ivy - Despite it's incredibly annoying lyrics that seem a bit repetitive at times, the music on this song is irresitable
Hey Baby - again, a great pop/rock song that would make a great single
Before the Storm - a bitter sweet duet with pop sensation Miley Cyrus. The vocals are great on this one as is the heartfelt lyrics
What Did I do To Your Heart - With a country feel, this song is a refreshing filler for teh album
Much Better - Despite it's obvious target (a direct hit at the heartbroken Taylor Swift), this song is a real winner with it's clear homage to the legendary Neil Diamond. One of the best songs they've recorded.
Black Keys - Great vocals and astounding lyrics. It's easy to forget a sixteen year old wrote them.
Don't Charge Me for the Crime - An interesting pop and rap medley. It's a good attempt, but the lyrics are not really believable coming from Disney's favorite squeaky clean poster boys
Turn Right - Easily one of the best songs that the Jonas Brothers have recorded. The music is clean and beautiful and the lyrics are unbelievably real and relatable
Don't Speak - I see this as another excellent single. Excellent hook, very catchy
Keep It Real - In case you were forgetting who you were listening to, this song will remind you that the Jonas Brothers are still kings of pop for young people
