Product Description

Timbaland is already acknowledged as one of music's most inventive and distinctive creators. Yet the artist/producer's forthcoming album, just his second solo album, promises to shock the world. Timbaland Presents Shock Value (Mosley Music Group/Blackground/Interscope) is set for release April 3, 2007. The first single, 'Give It To Me,' featuring Justin Timberlake and Nelly Furtado. 'My mission is to blow up the boundaries and tear down the limits,' says Timbaland. I'm taking my music outside of the box. I'm not getting away from what I'm known for; I'm just going to a place where it's all about the music, not about the labels on the music. That's why I call it Shock Value--from the artists to the production, it will shock the system. Guests include Justin Timberlake, Nelly Furtadio, Jay-Z, Fall Out Boy, Nicole Scherzinger (PCD), Snoop Dogg, Lil' Wayne, Twista, She Wants Revenge, The Hives, Keri Hilson, Elton John and more. This is the explict version.

When the most exciting producer in pop music himself puts out a CD, the thrill is in the discovery: The world may have already suspected that Justin Timberlake, Nelly Furtado, and a small army of other singers owed 75% of their fame to the stockpile of skittering beats Timbaland built and then graciously set them upon, but here's a chance to prove it. Or it might have been in less welcoming hands. Shock Value is a far-reaching and ambitious disc; a masterpiece, even, in its own way. But it's not at all self-centered. If there's a point being put across here, it's that Timbaland came by your vote as behind-the-scenes musical man of the hour honestly: pair him with Fall Out Boy or the Strokes, and he will not only provide tracks that surprise you by maintaining their rock 'n' roll integrity, he will also convince you that shimmer's role in rock music has, to now, been tragically misguided and miniscule. Re-team him with Timberlake and Furtado (for the near-flawless track "Give It to Me") and he will again trade vocal bites, but they will still be nibbly, not voracious. In a CD full of experiments and puzzles (why is Elton John just piano-playing, not singing? And how did the L.A. band One Republic end up on this disc?) a single truth emerges: Timbaland's taste is impeccable, but his judgment is even better. Shock Value, by virtue of its swirly beats and mesmerizing rhythms, will bring him a smidge closer to the spotlight. But because it's a disc of collaborations, he'll retain the shadowy-genius reputation that precedes him, and that he so richly deserves. --Tammy La Gorce

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.

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!

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.

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.

We all know that Timbaland is an excellent producer as he has shown us in the past with such artists as: Brandy, Missy Elliott, Pussycat Dolls, Nelly Furtado, Justin Timberlake, Bjork, etc..... <----- Just to name a (very) few!! His success has sky rocketed within the last year plus with the latter named artists'. Timbaland has a few solo CD's under has belt as well that have not gotten very much commercial success.

His latest release: 'Shock Value' relies heavily on collaborations and Timbalands trademark beats. His raps are not that noteworthy but they are not that prodominant on here either. (which in my opionion is really no great loss) He recruits some great talent such as: Nelly Furtado, Justin Timberlake, Elton John, Fall Out Boy, 50 Cent, Dr. Dre, Magoo, Missy Elliott, She Wants Revenge, Nicole Scherzinger (lead Pussycat Doll) and a name I have not heard of that appears on a number of songs that I really like: Keri Hilson.

There are a few songs on here that as soon as you hear them will right away remind you of JT's "Sexyback" - which in my opinion was kind of a "safe" choice or just plain laziness. On the other songs I really liked how Tim matches the beats with the artist with whom is singing in the song - i.e - Fall Out Boy and She Wants Revenge have a more rocky and edgy sound to them which are both excellent. The pairing with Elton John thrives a lot on piano. Another great track. One of my favorite songs "Bounce" F/ Justin Timberlake, Missy Elliott & Dr. Dre. Very catchy song - Missy has the most standout line with "Hel* naw, like Britney Spears I wear no draws! CLASSIC.

Every song is a standout and worth the purchase. It could have sone without the carbon copy "Sexyback" sounding songs but the rest of the CD more than makes up for it.

does anyone know what the difference is with this new timbaland cd...
According to Amazon's listing:
"UK pressing of the 2007 album from super-producer Timbaland features two bonus tracks: 'Hello' and 'Come Around'."

So 2 bonus tracks and that's it I think.

Incredibly BAD Distortion
I'm glad someone else noticed this. I think it is inexcusable as well that a professional mainstream musician would be released something like this. I've tried tons of filters on the tracks. That distortion is "built in". It's not really distorting, it's just the sound of distortion. As... Read More

Nina Simone "sinner man". Kanye used the same beat like 5 or 6 years ago on Talib Kweli's "get by".
