After a lengthy seven year hiatus, Justin Timberlake finally returns to the music scene with 2013s highly anticipated “The 20/20 Experience”.
In “The 20/20 Experience”, Timberlake shifts between different styles – pop, soul, contemporary R&B and dance. The album feels lavish and retro. Jazzy and old school. Edgy and tribal.
The album is solid despite being a bit on the long side. BUT since each song is so lengthy, it almost feels like there are multiple songs embedded in each, which makes for interesting listening experience. “Pusher Love Girl,” “Suit and Tie” and “Mirrors” are all excellent. Track by track JT gave us a little more. He isn’t afraid to try something new and switch up the usual. It is a clean album with all the familiarity of typical Timberlake.
Justin delivered yet again. I liked the overall journey of “The 20/20 Experience”. I felt each song flowed and had its moments of pure JT ecstasy. Years later I still can listen and sing to every “FutureSex/LoveSounds” song. I have a feeling that will happen with this album.
