I'm torn, in listening to Timbaland's new album Shock Value, between being genuinely impressed, and wondering if it was all meant to sound very similar. Part of what irks me so much about Timbaland's productions is that his stuff is so accessible and recognizable, there almost isn't room for the artist to be themself. (Nelly Furtado's "Say It Right", for example) On this album, the beats rule. They are Timbaland's voice, his palette, his paintbrush, his paint...the glue that holds the entire operation together. It is his greatest strength, and I also feel his biggest weakness. Beats are great, but I feel they can only get you so far.

Timbo has about 5 radio hits nestled in this album, and some collaborations that will prove interesting in the future. He's discovered a fantastic singer, Keri Hilson, and stuck her in the album three times, once with Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger, once with D.O.E. and once with Sebastian. Each song showcases her considerable talent, and I am eagerly anticipating her solo album (as long as it isn't positively littered with Timbaland's beats). "Give It To Me", obviously, is already a hit since it features the vocals of two artists he can claim credit for being "HRN" (hot right now). "Release" is a fast-paced song that just makes you want to move. "Bounce" is a dirty silly song that is almost guaranteed to get some attention, but not because it has any real merit for anything. "Scream", the collaboration between Keri Hilson, Nicole Scherzinger, and himself. "Fantasy" brings up the tail, having a ton of intensity and a cutesy r&b chanteuse named Money.

There are some collaborations here that are questionable, like Fall Out Boy, the Hives, or She Wants Revenge.

Generally I only buy a CD if I like at least 3/4 songs, with this CD I liked Give it to Me with JT and Nelly F. that I had to have the CD. I knew I wouldn't be disappointed b/c all of Timbalands beat are always fresh and new. After a few listens through I really was surprised how much I liked the whole CD. He has songs with everyone from Missy, to Justin, to Elton John, and Fallout Boy. This CD really shows his skills to work with any and all kinds of music and with any and all types of groups.

^^ Keri Hilson someone to look out for and ofcoarse Nicole Scherzinger is always amazing when she graces the tracks and videos.

Basically my favorite songs from the album are mostly the last ones(saving best for last).

Very nice production from the timbaland & danja group & their associates.

The only track i wasnt really feeling was 6. Come & Get Me, the rest that i did not menton where all great production wise and good vocally.

Timbaland deserves a lot of props for his continual excellence in bringing quality to the music industry.

A Multicultural CD That's Not For The Closed Minded

By Effrem J. Adams

This CD is very intense, original, and well produced. Unfortunately it will go right over people's heads. After listening to the album I think only people who truly appreciate music will enjoy it. "Shock Value" has no one sound to it. Instead Timbaland goes ahead of the game and brings in elements from India, Rock, Jazz, Rap, Hip-Hop, Soul, Orchestra, Choir, and even a little Country as heard in track "Time".

However this CD is certainly NOT for the closed minded and this will unfortunately be the reason for its demise. Those into one particular genre may feel alienated. Rap fans may not feel there's enough rap songs, while rockers will like the rock riffs, but won't take too keen to the rap songs. Thrown in is track "Bombay" with an Indian twist to it that is amazing. Again it's a song many will have to open their minds to.

In "Bounce" Timbaland reunites with superstar Missy Elliot along with Justin Timberlake, and Dr. Dre. You have a unique duo in "One and Only" featuring Fallout Boys which a similar track to "Dance Dance" only with bass beats and subtle flutes in the background. Timbaland shows off in "2 Man Show" featuring Elton John and Kirk Franklin choir.

Almost every song on the CD could become an instant single hit. While "Give It To Me" is a great song I wish Timbaland had took a bolder route and released a more unique track. On the plus side the CD is a pure club banger!
