EDITORS’ NOTES

Freed from the rigours of commercial pop’s factory floor, Justin Timberlake concocts a solo debut that manages to—somehow—be both drum-tight and boundlessly inventive. Of course, Justified is also a monument to the bottled-lightning production of The Neptunes (the earthy snap of “Señorita”, the glistening, space age funk of “Rock Your Body”) and Timbaland (layered, percussive alchemy on “Cry Me a River” and “Right for Me”). But those sumptuous beatscapes would be nothing without the focal point of Timberlake’s MJ-worthy falsetto, emancipated swagger and full-beam star power.

Timberlake's Talent is Justified

A fantastic debut album from Timberlake, clearly revealing his talent. Whilst I enjoy the several stand-out songs (Cry me a River, Rock Your Body, Let's Take a Ride), the others are not bad at all. The featured performances from Timbaland and Clipse are excellent, and make this a very good album to have in your collection.

1 of the best albums of the decade

Love this album, I think it's amazing, some great RnB songs, great Pop songs you can play the whole album through to the end without skipping any songs which is very very rare these, there aren't many albums I've done that with this decade!
