FutureSex/LoveSounds is the second studio album by American recording artist Justin Timberlake. It was released on September 12, 2006, by Jive Records and the Zomba Group of Companies. After a two-year hiatus during which Timberlake felt unable to record new material, he returned to collaborating with record producer Timbaland. Along with the latter's dependent, Danja, the three in general wrote FutureSex/LoveSounds and much of the album's contents were produced in Timbaland's Thomas Crown Studios. Although it shares lyrical themes with Timberlake's debut album, Justified, FutureSex/LoveSounds has more diverse music. It infuses R&B and pop with techno, funk, and elements of rock, the last being the genre that was the main inspiration of Timberlake during the album's recording. The reprises and interludes interspersed on the album's tracklist were an attempt by the production team at channeling Timberlake's influences which include David Bowie and Prince. FutureSex/LoveSounds was met with a generally positive reception, in which most music critics noted the influences in the album and its collection of eclectic sounds. The album produced six singles that attained chart success, including US number-one hits "SexyBack", "My Love", and "What Goes Around... Comes Around". Rolling Stone magazine ranked the album at number 46 on its list of the best albums of the 2000s, and aside from earning numerous best-of lists, the album received several Grammy Award nominations, including Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album. It has been certified multi-platinum in many countries worldwide, and has sold over ten million copies, with four million in the United States alone

With help, as always, from Timbaland, and with such guest stars as Three Six Mafia and T.I., Timberlake brings a fine production of rockin' beats, lyrics about sex and heartbreak and a solid album of which most is great material with very little filler. This is one of those few compilations that comes along that has a lot of singles released and no matter how many times they are played ad nauseum on the radio, they are still enjoyable to listen to on your own time.
Below is a track-by-track description with a numeric rating on a scale of one to ten.
Track 1: FutureSex/LoveSound--(8)--a good, heavy-hitting track to start the album off with. Easily danceable, definitely sensual, this showcases Timberlake's new sound, his new persona. It's fresh, it's rich and you'll want to dance right along with it.
Track 2: SexyBack--(8)--the first single from the album. Still has staying power, despite being radio-raped. Allowed the public a sneak peek at the sensuality that Timberlake had newly embraced and let run through all of the tracks on this album.
Track 3: Sexy Ladies--(8)--another track with a good beat that is similar to the beat used in "Futuresex/Lovesound". It's hard to stop yourself from dancing while driving when this is playing in the car.
Track 4: My Love--(7)--an upbeat danceable love song from Timberlake to his lady love. This has also achieved a lot of radioplay but it still just as good after repeat listens. T.I. lends a hand with this track and, just as with the rest of them, we hear a lot of Timbaland on this track as well.
Track 5: LoveStoned/I Think She Knows--(8)--A track to follow in the 'N Sync steps of falling for a girl that he meets in a club. Here, Timberlake starts off with yet another strong, danceable track and leads into one of the many over-a-minute-long interludes he uses on this album.
Track 6: What Goes Around (Comes Around)--(10)--Nice and long with some great beats about a man who's been wronged by his cheating lover who is going to get her just desserts.
Track 7: Chop Me Up--(10)--Another incredible song to follow up the previous incredible song. The beat is amazing, the Three Six Mafia raps are put together very well and this is easily one of the most solid tracks on the album. You will be blasting this when it comes on.
Track 8: Damn Girl--(5)--This track is one of the least liked on the album. It doesn't have the same flow and it doesn't feel like it's put together as tightly.
Track 9: Summer Love--(9)--This is a great song to crank up in the car on a hot summer night while you're cruising along the winding roads of the neighborhood. Great beats once again!
Track 10: Until The End Of Time--(6)--this song sounds like it could have come off of any one of Prince's albums, since it features his signature beat. One of the more down-tempo songs on the album, it still holds its own as a ballad. The album version does not feature Beyonce, as the radio version had.
Track 11: Losing My Way--(7)--a good slow jam about people who need someone to hear their plight because lately, life hasn't been going so well for them.
Track 12: (Another Song) All Over Again--(5)--another forgettable track along the same lines as "Damn Girl". This is another ballad on the album but not very solid.
That being said I must say that when I got it I played it OUT!! I was so surprised at how many jams were on the CD. Listened to it day and night, at work, at home while cooking, gardening, reading told everyone I spoke with about it since I was like BLOWN away. Had several favorites from the "GET" and man I just couldn't wait for the radio stations to catch up with the ENTIRE CD because they were still playing "Sexyback" and as time went by and I would hear more singles released and played on the radio my smile was broad and my ears delighted that some of my favorites made it to the radio waves. Timberland and JT did a AWESOME job on this CD with mixing up slow jams (that will move you to close your eyes and nod your head) and dance music that will make you run out to the dancefloor at a club. With the exception of a few songs this CD is solid and I have this thing that if I like if out of a 12 songlist CD I like over 8 of them that is pretty dang good! For the record my faves are:
1. Until the end of Time
3. My Love
4. Future Sex/Love Sounds
5. Losing My Way
6. All Over Again
7. Summer Love
8. What Goes Around (the remix version)
The album has two main topics: Love and Sex. With one very good revenge song, ''What Goes Around'' which is hands down one of the best songs he's ever written and it's easy to tell that this was about a certain ex-girlfriend *cough Britney *cough who was wasn't doing so well after their break up. Other stand out tracks are Futuresex/Lovesounds, Sexy Ladies, and Damn Girl. None of which were singles but should have been
Overall, this is a 5 star album and I hope one day he can top it
