Critic Reviews

Show All
  • Pitchfork

    The former teen heartthrobs’ first album in almost 10 years is by no means extraordinary, but it’s a respectable showing from a group that has long deserved more respect than they got.

    A record that makes up for its lack of pop innovation with personal emotion.

  • POP SUGAR

    While the music definitely has some old-school flair, it's also the perfect blend of their solo careers as well.

  • The Young Folks

    While these songs don’t exactly break the mold, it’s important that they’re honest and emotional, which is just what the Brothers are striving for in their reunion.

    If you’re a devotee of the brothers, you’ll probably get more of a kick out of it, and good for you. Otherwise, you’re not missing much.

  • TIME

    It’s an impressive feat for a band that might have seemed doomed to go the way of Hanson, but it’s also a testament to the public appetite for something that feels at once new and familiar.

    All in all, it’s an album with a diverse number of songs, some are sonically more pleasant than others but I think we’re all just glad to have new music by our favorite three brothers.

  • Thomas Bleach

    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.

    Happiness Begins is a great album especially for a returning album.

  • Popdust

    Summarily, it's an unremarkable, safe collection of tracks obviously written by the churning machine of the music industry for use by the highest bidder. But that's all it needed to be.

    On Happiness Begins, they’re so much sillier, warmer, more arrogant, more enthusiastic, delighted with themselves and each other.
