Justin Timberlake returns with the highly anticipated album Future Sex/ Love Sounds, the sexy follow-up to the mega-hit Justified. Co-written by Timberlake along with hit-makers Timbaland, Rick Rubin and will.i. am., Future Sex/ Love Sounds is infused with the hip-hop based R&B sound that has launched Justin as one of the genre's premier performers.
One spin of FutureSex/LoveSounds and it's hard to believe that Justin Timberlake was ever a boy-band barnstormer--no modern-day male artist beats him when it comes to single-minded self assurance or suavity. "SexyBack," the inescapable summer sizzler of a first single off this short and thrillingly unwholesome disc, makes that clear on its own: If there was ever any question about whether sexy was in need of reviving--a doubtful proposition at best, given the sheer volume of JT's gyrating counterparts--he lays it to rest instantly over a small but insistent Timbaland-concocted beat. On that track, Timberlake's appeal is his sweet but newly thuggish-sounding voice--here's a good kid gone bad, and he's determined to convince us of it not only by tossing a few well-timed mother****ers our way but also with such lyrics as "I'll let you whip me if I misbehave." The rest of FutureSex will feel familiar to anyone who picked up 2002's brilliantly funk-flecked Justified: "Love Stoned/I Think She Knows Me," shifts from Michael Jackson-esque paranoid trilling to pulsating guitar rock; "Chop Me Up," a collaboration with Three 6 Mafia and Timbaland, gives up the grit rap-style but still manages to recall both Prince and Stevie Wonder; "My Love," with T.I., mines classic Timberlake territory with meltaway lyrics like "I can see us holding hands walking on the beach/Our clothes in the sand"; and the straight-up but groovy lament "Losing My Way" asks, searchingly, what may be the silliest question a squeal-inducing pop star has ever posed: "Can anybody out there feel me?" Rest assured, JT: we feel every past-, present-, and future-sexy verse. --Tammy La Gorce

Personally, i'm a fan of the indie music scene, which puts me far from being a Justin Timberlake fan, but i've already pre-ordered a copy of this album.
Boy was I wrong! This album is dopaliciously original. Why? One word, Timberland. He brought that Aaliyah, Ginuwine feel and mixed it with pop-sexy to create "FutureSex/LoveSounds." Its one of the only CD's you can play as a DJ in any Club from New York to Europe, California to Florida and find something everybody can dance to. The album features house/techno, hip-hop, dance, pop and R&B rolled into a nice music sandwich.
SexyBack, My Love, Chop Me Up
However, when I heard some of the material from this album I was immediately intrigued. It was just so interesting to see and hear Justin Timberlake evolve from his days in *Nsync and mature into more of an artist in his own right, this is a completely different ballgame for Justin Timberlake so upon purchasing this album, no one should even think to expect something like his first album or anything from his *Nsync days because that is completely out the window here.
Upon receiving this album, I wasn't sure what to expect because all I had heard and knew was what I heard on the radio and on my television. I took it home, later that night put it in my CD player and just let the music flow. Much to my delight I fell in love with the album and it's one of my favourite albums in my entire collection. That's the situation with most of the albums my best friend gives me, they hold a special place in my heart because they came from her.Read more ›
The Prince vibe from the title track is one my favorite songs in this album. The song is really sexy and fun as well as "Sexyback." The next 3 tracks on the CD are some of the stronger numbers. "Sexy Ladies...."(70's funk vibe), "My Love"(techno vibe), and "Love Stoned," (lots of beat and harmonies) are completely different from each other with different sounds that works out real well.
Justin really shows his maturity with 3 solid slow jams. Out of the three, my favorite is "Until the End of Time,"(prince vibe) because he really throws down an R &B vibe in this one. "Summer Love..." is also great because it has a fun vibe with the attached song "Set the Mood" which is really short but sweet at the same time. "What Goes Around..." is a great track it sounds as though it came from one of the ballads on Justified as well as "My Love."
He gets down with 3-6 Mafia in "Chop Me Up" which isn't bad it has great thumping beats and lyrics. "Damn Girl" with Will.I.Am (funk Prince Vibe) is another favorite due to the live band sound. Some of the tracks either end with a prelude or interlude which blend and lead into the following song very nicely. Timbaland and Justin clearly work's well with each other. His songs will clearly be a standout on radio while others might blend in. There's no need to write this guy off whether you buy this album or not because he managed to create another good solo album.
Most of the album has a blend of dance, R&B, as well as slow songs. There are songs like, FUTURESEX/LOVESOUND sounding similar to George Michael's song "I Want Your Sex", to more dance styles such as SEXYBACK featuring Timbaland and MY LOVE featuring T.I. bringing the beats up to the heavy synthesizers, rap interludes, and climaxing techno sounds sure to get you in the mood to move, fantasize or just shake it on the dance floor! For rap lovers, CHOP ME UP, will be sure to attract since Three 6 Mafia and Timbaland make much collaboration on the song. There is heavy bass, tight rhymes, and some overcharged electronica enhanced rap vocals. DAMN GIRL featuring Will.I.Am has much reminisce of the times when disco was at an all time high and artists such as Prince were big. His voice levels have some similarity to his. The vocals are sensual, listener friendly, and pleasurable!
For more mellow sounds, SEXY LADIES has an R&B touch giving the message of how easy it is to attain a sexy lady when being so hot while LOVESTONED has the passionate, lustful romantic references that go nicely too. Aside those slower jams, SUMMER LOVE has some faster beats that later simmer down to "Set The Mood (Prelude)" and bring a pause type feeling of how romance can truly capture the heart. Justin has definitely grown from his past styles of songs like CRY ME A RIVER to a more mature sounding WHAT GOES AROUND.Read more ›
