I am 62 yrs old and my husband is 65. We both absolutely love this album. My 26 yr. old listened to it in the car and I ordered it for him too!! This album covers all ages and genres of music. Justin has definitely grown up and so has his music. He is an all around entertainer and will be around for a long time. I am anxiously awaiting the followup to this album.

Dang seven years? What happened to my life...!

Timberlake's new album is different for a pop album in that a majority of the songs contain quite varied passages and are over five minutes long. The album is 70 minutes long and it contains ten tracks, and each song is its own rollercoaster, weaving different rhythms into a cohesive "experience." It almost feels like a double album because of the expansiveness of the content. Of-course this type of length isn't new in other genres, like classical, or post-rock and edm type music, but in a vocal based pop album I haven't seen it. Timberlake takes us on a ride, and it's awesome.

I honestly can't think of anyone who I'd actually want to hear make a seven minute pop song, and when I first saw the track lengths I was a little befuddled. Ofcourse all my apprehension disappeared upon listening to the album through. As a fan of groups like "Rachel's," "Phantogram," and "Zeds Dead" type stuff I really appreciate the musicality that Timberlake brings here. There's no one genre I feel like I can pin him in. He goes everywhere using elements from classic soul (pusher love girl, that girl) to indie experimental (Blue Ocean Floor) to hitting on the classic Timberlake sound we're used to (Mirrors). The thing is, each one of these different Timberlakes that we see is nothing short of brilliant. I hate to admit it, but the dude is a current music genius. Sure he's probably had good guidance, but here's a guy who's pretty much got it all, and yeah as a 29 year old dude maybe I'm a bit jealous.

The only real criticism that I've seen is that Timberlake may not expand enough on the type of vibe he showed us before on "Futuresex/Lovesounds" but to be honest that was a pretty good sound and he does build upon it here.

Sorry to say, this C.D. was hard to listen to. It was alot of noise and not pleasing lyrics. I saw Justin on television, so bought this C.D. I think it is better when you have a visual of his performance.

(originally written for Sputnikmusic)

Life is never easy being JT. He sings, he acts, he constantly is featured in GQ. The ladies want him, the guys want to be him. He took 7 years off from singing to become an established actor, and some of the performances he's given (The Social Network in particular) are just stellar. So when he announces that a new album is on the way, it's hard not to be even the slightest bit enthusiastic. Whereas artists like Rihanna pump out albums every year that seem to adhere to the same formula with little to no change, one look at the track listing for The 20/20 Experience shows he's got some ambition up his sleeve.

Since I've gotten the album, I've listened to it three times. I know it's one that will have to grow on me, as his previous effort FutureSex/LoveSounds set the bar admittedly soaringly high, But I'm still not feeling it yet. It has sort of grown on me a bit, but I'm still not quite... used to it. For one, it sounds startlingly different from the previous album, whereas his previous album had a more upbeat, power-RnB sound to it, this sounds like more of a throwback to the 90s (but thankfully as far away from N*SYNC as possible!). And the songs do exceed 5 minutes in length- which is a bold move for pop music. In this day and age where people are used to their pop songs being a maximum of 4 minutes long, this album flirts with progressive territory. And in a way, I do admire Timberlake for trying to make an album that is meant to be listened to front to back, just like in the old days.

To be fair, none of the songs are particularly bad- they're all very enjoyable. Despite the mixed reviews, "Suit And Tie" really does represent the album perfectly- there's lots of balance between upbeat and slow.

Great album! I had to take my record player out for this one. Nothing beats the unique sound of vinyl. With the style of the album, it suits (and ties) it quite well. 10/10 on this JT album. The tracks are on two separate vinyls (total of 4 sides).
Note: Ordered directly through Amazon.com and it does come with the Album Digital Download Code on a sheet with his image at the bottom and Justin Timberlake did confirm the rumors; he is coming out with a part two!

I had no intentions of buying Justin Timberlake's new album because I wasn't a Justin Timberlake fan...UNTIL NOW! This album is what you need in your life. I heard about it via Twitter and so I sampled the songs and I was like ok, ok. I see you Justin. Went to Target because they have the deluxe edition and let me tell you that was the best purchase I could've made in music. I hope he gets at least 10 grammys for this one. This album carries a smooth, sexy sound that you can groove to from beginning to end.

My Fav tracks are:

Pusher Lover Girl
Don't Hold The Wall (Ultimate Fav)
Strawberry Bubblegum
Let The Groove Get In
Mirrors
Blue Ocean Floor

I love how he did something different that no one else is doing and that's extending the songs. Basically combining the original with the remix to those tracks that are 7-8 min long. His voice is so intoxicating that you can't help but love whatever he does with it. So overall, if this is what comes from going on a 7 year hiatus...I'll wait! Music at its finest!!!
