Alright hear me out here... If I'm gonna hate something I at least try to listen to it first to make sure I'm not just hating because everyone else does. So I decided to check out some of Nick Jonas's solo stuff and while I don't love it by any means, it's far from the bubblegum pop sound of the Jonas Brothers. It's still pop but a lot of it has kind of a soul/blues rock sound to it. It's worth checking out, imo.

Not something I'd listen too, but pretty good. Maybe we can watch him evolve further and become some sort of jazz fusion guitarist/sax player.

yes, i said it's definitely pop (which i don't think is a derogatory term) but just that it's not the ridiculous bubblegum disney pop of the jonas bros.

Wow, this has been out for a while


And who cares?


I know, I randomly decided to check it out... And I just wanted to get the pit's opinion on it.

It's definitely him performing.. But I wouldn't call it his material.

I also find it funny that the video description says "Support Nick".. I'm sure as hell he doesn't need people asking for them to support him
#12
well i just hope he gets better at least good enough to be respected as a musician

It's just more mainstream pop, that's really all there is to it


It's not utter shit, but doubt anyone in the Pit really gives a shit about it either
#15
What did he do in the Jonas Brothers? Was he the singer?

He's a good vocalist.

52 seconds before stopping and saying "I stopped my All Shall Perish for this?" Then proceeded to play where I left off on Stabbing to Purge Dissimulation.

The sound of me vomiting is better than ICP.


WAIT! I have a better example.

A beginner Squier Strat played through a Line 6 Spider III on the Insane channel with all EQ set to 10, and gain set to 10 sounds better than ICP.
[And sadly I've heard this.. Over and over again.. And he thinks it sounds amazing.. ]

I had to use the 'vuvuzela' button.

Ibanez RG2EX1

I believe that Don't Stop Believing is overrated. There are far better Journey songs out there.

The Pit is like Frankenstein's Monster on fire when it comes to pop.

"Raowr, pop, pop bad, me no like pop, roaaah!"

But deep down we really just want to become a big-name pop culture icon and be loved, we're not a jackass.

Anyway, not bad. It's not "super-special-awesome", but I have hope for him yet.

All Shall Perish suck imo.... To each his own, though.

(I guess I shouldn't be talking tho considering I'm listening to a jonas bros side project )

I'm glad he decided to do his own thing. Of course his first album is going to be pop. but it sounds like he wants to pursue rock and blues. I kinda dig it.

Go nick

Looking at the comments, I think his biggest obstacle to becoming a respectable musician is his current fan base. The majority of the comments are little girls arguing if he's hotter than justin bieber or arguing whether his stuff is "metal" or "screamo."

Then again, the Beatles didn't start out too differently... I think there's hope.

@ your edit

That wasn't so much directed at you, but others and about 75% of the pit.

Just finished giving it a second listen, so lets give it a short review.

Kind of reminds me a little of Stevie Wonder and Joe Bonamassa mixed with a nice multilayered pop vocal, and I'm still left floored laughing in enjoyment when he tries going Steven Tyler before the guitar solo. Overall, I'm very happy and surprised to see him breaking the sugarcoated Disney shell of the Jonas Brothers.

If the rest of the album has this kind of sound, I may actually go out and buy the damn thing, fuck the fact he's a Jonas Brother. Yes, he may have been a member of one of the biggest commercial pawnbands in decades, but he has a good voice, and if he wrote this himself he's a good songwriter as well, and if he keeps going like this, then this my friends, is what people always whine about artists they like who are pop artists eventually doing; using the music industry, being a puppet until you get a fanbase, then boom, doing something you want to and your fans will still support you.

Rock on Nick Jonas, four words I never thought I'd say in my entire life in that order seriously.

For a while I thought that may happen, but I could never work the escape plan out quite right, the chance of failure was just too high.
