Most of us have probably seen the Hollywood Records press release by now – the Jonases have hit #1 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart with Lines, Vines & Trying Times!

Billboard itself soon confirmed.

Not surprising, exactly, though it is unprecedented in that it is their second #1 within a 10 month period.  It also debuted # 1 in Canada, Spain, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina and Central America. We don’t expect anything less of them!

Congratulations, guys!!!!

But somehow, in the rush of the world tour beginning, and an apparently soberly toned (note uberserious faces above*) Rolling Stone cover feature hitting stands shortly, this feels more like a reassuring affirmation than a moment to  happydance in the streets – the show marches on (not to mention the extracurriculars)!

And of course, the win is not without its glitches, seeing as the album has opened to roughly half of A Little Bit Longer‘s astounding opening last August, with 247,000 in sales this past week – still completely awesome, but if you’re neurotic (like me!) you know that this won’t go unnoticed

Haters – gleeful doom and gloomers that they are – will probably make much of this, but I’ll choose to look at it as the natural part of a shift, rather than as some sort of stall. That’s been the mindset that a lot of the LVaTT media of the past week has been putting us in mind of, and as proof, I’m going to hit some highlights from the recent onslaught of album reviews, the glowing and the less-glowing, that intrigued me.

Join me after the jump!

There ain’t no party like a live chat party ’cause a live chat party don’t stop – yo!

OK, the chat will eventually stop, but you know we will talk about it until the cows come home.

Come one, come all, to the Jonas Brother’s Facebook page (don’t forget to become a fan) for an unprecedented Facebook chat event tonight at 5pm PDT, 8pm EST.

NB: You will need to click on the tabs until you see the one marked “Jonas Live” to get to the proper application and page. (Or try this link.)

They’ve promised surprises, they’ve promised music, they’ve promised answers to questions we have asked them to answer.

It will be awesome.

They also promised us a pre-listen of their new single “Paranoid”, even though many of us have heard all of the remaining 183 seconds of it by now (thank you Radio Disney! And YouTube).

It Rocks. – listen on their MySpace now!

*UPDATE* Watch the whole chat after the jump!

I freaking LOVE 23!

Quoting Mememoi: “That is the cutest SayNow idea EVER!”

The Guys have given all of us who subscribe to their SayNow service a sneak preview (22 or so seconds) of the song “Paranoid” from their upcoming album Lines, Vines, and Trying Times.

Let me say that again…
