Album review: The 20/20 Experience – Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake

JT may now think that looking like Michael Buble is a career move – but clearly there’s no one willing to say no to the austerity-busting dark lord of bubblegum pop.

Squillions of album sales will do that to a man.

The upside of sitting so high up on his ivory tower is that these epicly self-assured tracks about perfectly climaxing sex and galactic love affairs set in a universe entirely decorated with free-bar VIP areas and populated by air-brushed Jessica Biels is delivered with… sincerity.

The Timberlake-Timberland production combo also has no problem abducting every classy-sexy conceit from the past

40 years of soul and RnB and then letting each groove stretch way past the radio-edit timeline.

Shameless. JT lives in a world with no Monday mornings, no bathroom breaks and no mortgage repayments. And it’s fun to take a taste.
