This album has some very sexual, danceable tracks. I, for one, love the single SexyBack and couldn't wait to get my hands on this album. I was also curious to see if he had evolved from his last album and after hearing Future Sex/Love Sounds, Justin has finally live up to his potential. Although he still allows other artists to influence his music (more Prince than Michael), Justin really has created a niche for himself and adds some nice transition throughout his entire album.
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.
