I don't recall him making music that I actually liked but when I heard this, I fell in love with it. Is anyone surprised he's capable of such fine music?
Goes to show it's not the artists who are bad, it's era. I'm so glad the era of really trashy music is coming to an end and people are starting to wear actual clothes in their music videos. Cheers.
I liked his first album this much. Or at least I played it this much. The second one I play the least.
This Suit & Tie era sucks. Keep in mind that what you are liking is JayZ's production. Justin T has nothing to do with the creative.
The song is not bad but his voice leaves a lot to be desired. I don't like his falsetto. If you compare it to a classic one like Eddie Kendricks or a contemporary one like Robin Thicke you will hear the difference. Even Michael McDonald. Justin's is not pleasant to listen to for a whole song too annoying.
Totally over him.
He's extremely talented. He and Beyonce are 21st century world icons.
Madonna can write better stuff over other people's music.
it's Timbaland. Kind of like Quincy Jones and MJ.
So sick of him and all these mediocre performers like him with the kind of pr campaign behind this album of being shoved down the public's throat. He sucks!
JT and Beyonce are both manufactured by JayZ who has deep pockets and buys them their success. Anyone could become an icon with that kind of backing.
R12, "Hallelujah" works better when the singer is someone I want to fuck, and she ain't it.
Justin Timberlake, otoh...
r10 You're giving Jay Z too much credit. He's a creation himself. And he has nothing to do with Justin Timberlake's career or the production of his music. They re touring together though.
I agree that Timberlake sucks. He's overrated and overexposed.
Thank you R14, I can't stand Timberlake. He's WAY overrated.
Uh what?! This new song of his is shit. Catchy shit, I admit.
OP, you should know better than to post a positive thread about JT, just as you should never say anything nice about Beyonce. DLers have a completely irrational hatred of both people, and are seething with jealousy that they're both so rich, famous and successful.
The reason why Timberfake gets so much praise for his mediocre music is because the likes of Lil Wayne, Nicki Minja, One Direction, Katty Perry and others make him look like a musical genius. Thats how bad the music is today. Aaliyah died so Timberland gave all the good material to him. Timberland can probably make Harry Styles sound good too.
OP has the worst taste in music.
And what do you like, R21? Presumably you have the best taste, so let's hear it.
I like Justin but this album is epically overrated.
r22 also has the worst taste in music.
Janbot is back.
I actually think Justin Bieber has more talent than him.
[quote]Janbot is back.
Now you listen, you're a child. You obviously don't understand music, and realize how great Janet Jackson is.
[quote]This Suit & Tie era sucks. Keep in mind that what you are liking is JayZ's production. Justin T has nothing to do with the creative.
You're full of it. Timbaland collaborated with Justin, not J-Zzzzz. Zzzz only contributed the stupid rap in Suit & Tie.
When did it become cool to like Justin Timberlake? Back in my day, no one but teeny boppers liked him and people would make fun of you if you bought his album sort of like how people would make fun of you if you bought Justin Bieber's album today.
[quote]He's extremely talented. He and Beyonce are 21st century world icons.
Timberlake, yes...Beyonce, no.
Britney is bigger than both of them.
Fugly no talent hillbilly who got fucked by Lou Pearlman
Why is he now trying to go by JT? He never once went by JT before. Now all the signs say JT. The drums say JT. The ads say get "JT's new album". It's really fake how he wants this new nickname.
Janet has always been smart, here's why....
"Janet Jackson Says The Record Industry Is Dead: 'No More Albums'
Pop icon Janet Jackson, says she is done recording albums, according to former boyfriend, Jermaine Dupri. He says, Janet Jackson, who recently recorded the song 'Nothing' for her latest film Why Did I Get Married Too?, reportedly only wants to release singles "once in a while
"Last time I heard she really didn't want to do an album. She wanted to just do singles every once in a while.
"She's looked at the marketplace - albums are not really doing what they usually do when you put all this budget out there. Janet is just trying to figure out her landscape."
He added: "Janet's cool. She has a lot of work going on that's keeping her in the right direction. The movie came out... [and] it looks like her star power as an actress is still there.
"She's about to do the other movie, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf, with Mariah Carey, Kerry Washington and Whoopi Goldberg."
Janet Jackson's so talented that she can fall back on her acting career - it is where she started. Who remembers Penny from good times?

Justin Timberlake has become a legend now, that's why is new album is considered his best work since Sexyback. Everyone in the industry knows that JT is now a genius in the music industry. So, just deal!
Timberlake is incredibly talented. In his music and in his comedy. He is extraordinary.
Isn't that Kerry Washington movie three or four years old already, janbot?
[quote]Justin Timberlake has become a legend now, that's why is new album is considered his best work since Sexyback.
It's also his ONLY work since Sexyback. He took 7 years off to try acting in movies.
Justin also released "Justified" which was also very successful.
[quote]Why is he now trying to go by JT? He never once went by JT before.
Maybe not professionally, but that's always been what his friends have called him.
So whats up with him using the Dark and Lovely hair relaxer?
r41, you tried it!
Yeah, I've actually wondered how his famously kinky hair got so thick and straight as well...
r33 Because he saw how people would refer to Michael Jackson as MJ. Justin Bieber is now trying to go by "JB" as well, it's the new thing. Michael Jackson is still a trendsetter, even in death.
I hear he's spent the last six years smoking pot. Maybe that has something to do with it.
Britney's material has always been stronger.
I loved "Justified," R39.
What did Madonna say or hint at about Justin being gay?
hyaena tard face.
I think the relaxer has raised his talent to a whole new level!
How many more flop films does he need to be in to finally figure out that his acting career is NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN?
I think 20/20 is bloody brilliant!
I did like his music, but never find him sexy no matter how he tries.
Artist like Maxwell, D'Angelo and Miguel are way better than this overexposed clown. Miguel's song "Sure Thing" shits on everything he ever put out. There is nothing unique or different about his music.
Horrid OP, you need new ears.
This album will win BIG at the Grammys. Their is not one song that I don't like. Strawberry Bubblegum is stunning!
[quote]When did it become cool to like Justin Timberlake? Back in my day, no one but teeny boppers liked him
Yesterday's teeny boppers are today's fraus.
R28, you don't know jack.
"Timberlake no longer carries the starpower or audience to fill arenas, which led to the partnership with Jay-Z."
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
