Was it indeed good? The Jonas Brothers’ ‘A Little Bit Longer’

March 16, 2017 - Jonas Brothers

Do we have an manuscript we demeanour behind on fondly, though don’t know why? When’s a final time we listened to 16-year-old you’s favourite record of all time? Do we consternation how good a songs from your iPod Classic’s Top Played playlist have aged? In this new segment, we inspire a writers to revisit their many favourite albums from their past in sequence to establish a answer to a critical question, “Was it indeed good?”


Desperately plowing by stacks of silken teen magazines, acid for a best full-size posters was a common hobby for those dedicated to a Jonas Brothers during their golden years.

Shortly after Joe, Nick, and Kevin’s initial manuscript left fans swooning, a boys expelled their second and many renouned manuscript A Little Bit Longer in a summer of 2008. Thanks to Camp Rock, their initial underline film, debuting customarily dual months before to this, a boys had towering amounts of preteen girls to please. Like many boybands, a success of a Jonas Brothers was strongly connected to their ability to make artless immature fans tumble for them. Although my 10-year-old self would have told we this was her favourite album, some-more delight expected came from fantasizing about Nick serenading me on a marriage day than a tangible peculiarity of a music. Now that I’m no longer expecting a proposal, it’s time to confirm if a Jo Bros did some-more than ideally tousle their hair on A Little Bit Longer.

The account of many boyband albums goes something like: feeling a pain of rejection, anticipating someone else who could be a one, and afterwards doing all humanly probable to infer to them that their adore would final forever. In this fashion, a Jonas Brothers don’t wandering distant from a norm. But hey, if it ain’t damaged don’t repair it. With a recognition of past boybands as evidence, extraneous intrigue songs are destined and a genuine idea is to govern them in a approach that seems sincere, that a Jonas Brothers accomplish. Tracks about unrequited adore that could simply seem surplus like “Can’t Have You,” and “Shelf” are presented in familiar and upbeat ways that would have even a many dynamic hater unsuspectingly humming along.

The many renouned lane on a manuscript by distant was “Burnin’ Up.” Upon re-listening, a initial chord of a strain triggered transparent memories of dozens of girls squealing during an facile propagandize dance, and regardless of a years that have left by given then, we felt a accurate squeal-worthy excitement. Complete with a swat from a boys’ bodyguard Big Rob, it’s certainly something I’d be happy to have come adult on shuffle. Similarly, “Lovebug” didn’t move on a contrition that customarily comes with listening to the strain of past Disney stars. While a rest of a manuscript was “good for a boyband,” these dual marks are honestly good.

Winning smiles and transparent skin really contributed to a Jonas Brothers’ fame, though A Little Bit Longer valid that they were a small some-more gifted than many would have favourite to admit. After revisiting a album, we can rest positive that my younger self was during slightest half listening to a strain while picking out a caterer.

Was it indeed good? Yes.
