CRITIC REVIEWS

80
The Independent

It’s the best pop comeback – and likely one of the best pop albums – of the year.

80
AllMusic

The album offers old-fashioned pop values in a form that feels distinctly fresh and modern.

67
Consequence of Sound

Happiness Begins is the best effort the brothers have put forth in their career together or separately.

62
Pitchfork

The former teen heartthrobs’ first album in almost 10 years is by no means extraordinary, but it’s a respectable showing from a group that has long deserved more respect than they got.

55
Spectrum Culture

As an album, Happiness Begins is nothing special, designed to float into Lyft-shuffle anonymity rather than stop us in our tracks.

"WOAH, AN ACTUAL REVIEW FOR THIS ALBUM?" - AOTY users
"(*inaudible screeching*)" - The girls at Starbucks

Yeah...it's not surprising to see why no one is taking this album seriously enough to make a full-length review. Of course, I was stupid to even think about spending the extra couple of minutes writing up this review, but y'know...might as well get the bad stuff over with!

Sitting through the 43 minutes of teen pop "summer jams" multiple times in this Jonas ... read more

"Happiness Begins" is a by the numbers summer pop album. There are a few bops like "Sucker" (which I'll admit grew on me a bit) and the brothers' vocals are still very competent. But generic production and soulless lyrics don't help it from being every insecure straight white teenage girl's wet dream.

Fav Tracks: Every Single Time, Sucker, Don't Throw It All Away
