The Jonas Brothers, who became popular through the Disney Channel children's television network, have released their fourth album, Lines, Vines And Trying Times.

The American boy band have taken a different approach to this album, which has two flaws - weak opener World War III and the latest single Fly With Me.

The latter was first used during the end credits of the movie, Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian.

In Fly With Me, there are too many instruments which is a distraction but overall the boys have done a good job.

They have experimented with new sounds - for example, Don't Charge Me For The Crime is a pop-rap medley which features Common.

Much Better is an excellent homage to legendary American singer/songwriter Neil Diamond.

Turn Right and Black Keys are two of the best tracks on the album. Their down-to-earth lyrics are easily relatable to the band's clean image, while Before the Storm - a duet with Disney pop sensation Miley Cyrus - is another enjoyable number.

For fans who prefer the classic Jonas tunes, the latest album isn't a lost cause. With the lead single Paranoid, Poison Ivy, Hey Baby and the bonus track, Keep It Real, the band have remained faithful to their pop-rock roots.
