Clash

One of his most rounded and adult statements to date, ‘Spaceman’ is certainly worth exploring - as lockdown hobbies go, it’s up there with banana bread as one of the most tasteful.

The Independent

To be honest, this album is more Pringles than caviar. But it’s comfortingly moreish. When it comes to the Jonas boys, it seems that once you pop, you can’t stop.

PopMatters

While reminding us that he has always been more sonically interesting on his own, Nick Jonas' attempts at deeper emotion and thought fall flat on his new solo LP, Spaceman.

Pitchfork

To cut through and leave a lasting impression of Nick Jonas, the artist, would require a vision much bolder than what this album has to offer.

The Line of Best Fit

There's no doubt that Spaceman offers guilt-free pop with a tinge of R&B. Unfortunately, this doesn't make up for the lack of depth and emotion which means, despite being Jonas’ strongest work yet, the album still runs the risk of being forgettable.

The singles weren’t bad and made me think maybe this would be pretty good, but unfortunately while it is decent, it suffers from the problems a lot of radio friendly pop music does.

Having not released any solo music in the last five year as well as a lot of his solo work not remaining in the public consciousness, Nick Jonas had a lot to prove on his newest release, mainly whether or mot her artistry is even relevant outside of Millennial and Gen Z nostalgia. However, while I think this project wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, “Spaceman” doesn’t serve as a good argument for keeping Nick Jonas around.

Can we all just agree that Nick Jonas is the only REAL talented Jonas Brother?? I lowkey liked this album very much, but maybe I'm biased of his hottiness... hahaha just kidding but hey, I usually tend to enjoy his solo music and this one was no different, give it a try, at least he's not some random trap wannabe fuckboi like the one everybody know....

Never really got the hype for the Jonas Brothers, and if I wanted to listen to 3 brothers make music together and the general public on AOTY hating almost all of their material... I would just listen to AJR. Only member of the brothers I enjoyed based off of solo material was Nicks material, and this album got my attention to be sure. And I mean..., I'm not sure what I expected to be honest. Its your standard radio pop album, with some kinda cool production thrown on top of it. In a weird way, ... read more
