Happiness Begins is by no means an extraordinary album, but it’s a respectable showing from a group that has long deserved more respect than they’ve received.

The Jonas Brothers’ reunion is, against all critical odds, not a bad effort.

The Jonas Brothers use the album as a showcase for their evolution as musicians, delivering god-tier pop that’s both perfectly ready for 2019 and reminiscent of a familiar kind of happiness.

The material on this record is very reminiscent of some of the later stuff that One Direction were putting out and it’s nice having a strong boyband back in the world delivering some killer tunes.

Perhaps listeners can be grateful that it's at least a solid, listenable album—albeit formulaic and unsurprising.

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

While it has its peaks and its troughs, “Happiness Begins” is altogether an exceptional album in how it captures three brothers in a band, sounding like they are actually enjoying themselves.

The brothers deliver some of the best tunes of their careers ten years after their most successful days as a band.

Ultimately, although “Happiness Begins” is a passable listen punctuated by bright spots, it doesn’t appear as if the Jonas Brothers invested great effort into it, and listeners will be tempted to follow suit.

Watching the guys reconnect in Chasing Happiness and hearing them come away with what is inarguably their best album together is satisfying.
