DISSECTION: THE JONAS BROTHERS

When I first heard PARANOID (the lead single from Lines, Vines, & Trying Times–the 4th record from the Jonas Brothers) I immediately thought it to be stale and lackluster. Coming from a group who paved their way to fame for being a bit of a sugar rush overload was suddenly being a bit demure in a sound that lacked pop fizz.

But, my faith in the tween-like Beatles stayed true for I knew the video would be a million dollar production worthy of making the song more colorful.

And I was right.

Check out the Jonas Brothers in PARANOID below, a stunningly shot video tweaked to fit the ever growing fan base of the boys.

It’s clear the Jonas Brothers are a money making machine maneuvered and structured precisely for sales perfection. And although I can enjoy some of their music, it makes me question their artistic integrity. Will the boys grow into a band, stepping up to the mic with their own creative vision or will the slick hands of commercial goodness eventually wreck the teen machine when they are, say 25?
