Product Description

Amazon.ca

When the most exciting producer in pop music himself puts out a CD, the thrill is in the discovery: The world may have already suspected that Justin Timberlake, Nelly Furtado, and a small army of other singers owed 75% of their fame to the stockpile of skittering beats Timbaland built and then graciously set them upon, but here's a chance to prove it. Or it might have been in less welcoming hands. Shock Value is a far-reaching and ambitious disc; a masterpiece, even, in its own way. But it's not at all self-centered. If there's a point being put across here, it's that Timbaland came by your vote as behind-the-scenes musical man of the hour honestly: pair him with Fall Out Boy or the Strokes, and he will not only provide tracks that surprise you by maintaining their rock 'n' roll integrity, he will also convince you that shimmer's role in rock music has, to now, been tragically misguided and miniscule. Re-team him with Timberlake and Furtado (for the near-flawless track "Give It to Me") and he will again trade vocal bites, but they will still be nibbly, not voracious. In a CD full of experiments and puzzles (why is Elton John just piano-playing, not singing? And how did the L.A. band One Republic end up on this disc?) a single truth emerges: Timbaland's taste is impeccable, but his judgment is even better. Shock Value, by virtue of its swirly beats and mesmerizing rhythms, will bring him a smidge closer to the spotlight. But because it's a disc of collaborations, he'll retain the shadowy-genius reputation that precedes him, and that he so richly deserves. --Tammy La Gorce

By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This album comes across as the culmination of the work Timbaland has been working through on Furtado and Timberlake's discs creating a trilogy of sorts. It is a good album in its own right, with a feel very much like a highly refined yet still edgy mash-up in the manner of Jay-Z and Linkin Park's 2004 topper.

As a listen to this I found it funny that the some of songs I thought I would like - end up being my least favorite, while the songs that I thought I would hate end up being my favorite. Songs like "Bounce" was highly anticipated, but didn't deliver. Dre's verse is entirely too short, and quite meaningless, then to be followed up by Justin Timberlake - it just didn't mesh well. "Give It To Me" gets old real quick, with annoying vocals by Nelly, an on-going droning beat that rarely changes, and conceited lyrics by Timbo and JT. Great for the club, I suppose. "Release" is a throw back to JT's album. "Boardmeeting," "Way I Are," "Oh Timberland," "Throw It On Me," are pretty decent but is easily forgettable. In terms of collaborations this is a good CD. Tracks like "Time" with "She Wants revenge" and "Apologize" with "One Republic" stand out on the CD as indications that Timbaland really can do whatever he wants, and makes something sound good to the followers of whatever genre he chooses to play in.

If you liked Collison Course and any of Timbaland's recent work heard on the radio this album is definitely worth your time and money. If you have found most of it annoying then purchase the tracks you like and avoid the rest but I guarantee that you'll find at least one song to respect on here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent. April 6 2007
Format:Audio CD
This CD is pretty good.

although out of the 17 tracks, i only listen to about 7 of them often.

which would be my favourites of the CD:

-Give it to Me

-The Way I Are

-Bounce

-Come and Get Me

-Kill Yourself

-One and Only

-Apologize

Timbaland needs to make a few songs in the future on his own though, the only song that i preferred his verse over everyone elses was "kill yourself"

All in all, a good CD, and i kind of hope "apologize" will be the next single. But timbaland isn't really in that song, so i doubt it.

1.0 out of 5 stars shocking Aug. 9 2007
Format:Audio CD
timbaland does not lie with his album title shock value. When I listened to this two bit, soon to be in a bargain bin near you,wheres the punch line comedy CD piece of toxic waste,I was shocked. I was shocked at how terrible this paperweight that will only collect dust keeping my old school notes in place was. This is a comedy cd that will make you cry.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Confusingly Addictive Journey March 31 2007
Format:Audio CD
Chances are that if you've listened to any form of American mainstream music within the past few years, you either know of Timbaland or have heard his sound. Producer to the stars, Timbaland has been the defining sound in the music industry for just about a decade, creating unique sounds for artists such as Aaliyah, Justin Timberlake, and Missy Elliott, as well as a host of others.

Shock Value presents Timbaland with another chance to get his voice out there. Even during multiple attempts at a successful album, Tim took to shadowing on tracks that he'd produced... and, now that the songs he's making are hits (since when haven't they been?), Mr. Mosley's giving us a chance to see his personality up close.

The CD pretty much has an original sound, but if one listens closely enough, he or she should be able to notice similarities between a few of the tracks on this compilation and what's been heard on Justin Timberlake's FutureSex / LoveSounds. The beatbox in "Apologize" evokes memories of "My Love", the 'yeah' heard in "The Way I Are" may remind you of "SexyBack", and "Time" just screams of the "I Think She Knows" interlude. Other than these three, you probably shouldn't be concerned that Tim's losing it or biting off of himself (even though he may perhaps be, to a certain fraction of a degree: it's nothing important).

The tracks sound so different from each other that you may be convinced that they're not all from the same CD, or from the same time period. Of course, that's provided the versatility of Tim and his collaborators. The artists range from Elton John to Dr. Dre; and, from The Hives to 50 Cent, you'll probably be captivated by most of the songs here (for only two minutes, perchance). Some of the tracks may be able to especially attract your attention.

3.0 out of 5 stars A worthwhile purchase April 3 2007
By Benjamin Norman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I'm torn, in listening to Timbaland's new album Shock Value, between being genuinely impressed, and wondering if it was all meant to sound very similar. Part of what irks me so much about Timbaland's productions is that his stuff is so accessible and recognizable, there almost isn't room for the artist to be themself. (Nelly Furtado's "Say It Right", for example) On this album, the beats rule. They are Timbaland's voice, his palette, his paintbrush, his paint...the glue that holds the entire operation together. It is his greatest strength, and I also feel his biggest weakness. Beats are great, but I feel they can only get you so far.

Timbo has about 5 radio hits nestled in this album, and some collaborations that will prove interesting in the future. He's discovered a fantastic singer, Keri Hilson, and stuck her in the album three times, once with Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger, once with D.O.E. and once with Sebastian. Each song showcases her considerable talent, and I am eagerly anticipating her solo album (as long as it isn't positively littered with Timbaland's beats). "Give It To Me", obviously, is already a hit since it features the vocals of two artists he can claim credit for being "HRN" (hot right now). "Release" is a fast-paced song that just makes you want to move. "Bounce" is a dirty silly song that is almost guaranteed to get some attention, but not because it has any real merit for anything. "Scream", the collaboration between Keri Hilson, Nicole Scherzinger, and himself. "Fantasy" brings up the tail, having a ton of intensity and a cutesy r&b chanteuse named Money.

There are some collaborations here that are questionable, like Fall Out Boy, the Hives, or She Wants Revenge. But what seems awkward at first seems almost second nature by the end of the disc. I am glad that Timbo took these excursions into different genres, because it shows a true open mind and a willingness to try new things. I feel that these collaborations could open up interesting avenues, musically speaking, to styles we haven't properly considered in the past. Now we have a reference. "What would happen if we put some hot r&b/hip-hop beats to this pop-punk band? Ah! "One And Only" by Timbaland and Fall Out Boy is what would happen." It's not a bad claim.

Again, a large part of me feels like I'm listening to the same song over and over with different singers, so I think Timbaland needs to spend a little less time with the drum machine and more time trying to make the song stand well if those signature beats are taken away. That will show his true lasting power as his own solo artist, I believe.

4.0 out of 5 stars Timba-"Shocked" May 14 2007
By Lauren F. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Generally I only buy a CD if I like at least 3/4 songs, with this CD I liked Give it to Me with JT and Nelly F. that I had to have the CD. I knew I wouldn't be disappointed b/c all of Timbalands beat are always fresh and new. After a few listens through I really was surprised how much I liked the whole CD. He has songs with everyone from Missy, to Justin, to Elton John, and Fallout Boy. This CD really shows his skills to work with any and all kinds of music and with any and all types of groups.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not For The Closed Minded April 18 2007

A Multicultural CD That's Not For The Closed Minded

By Effrem J. Adams

This CD is very intense, original, and well produced. Unfortunately it will go right over people's heads. After listening to the album I think only people who truly appreciate music will enjoy it. "Shock Value" has no one sound to it. Instead Timbaland goes ahead of the game and brings in elements from India, Rock, Jazz, Rap, Hip-Hop, Soul, Orchestra, Choir, and even a little Country as heard in track "Time".

However this CD is certainly NOT for the closed minded and this will unfortunately be the reason for its demise. Those into one particular genre may feel alienated. Rap fans may not feel there's enough rap songs, while rockers will like the rock riffs, but won't take too keen to the rap songs. Thrown in is track "Bombay" with an Indian twist to it that is amazing. Again it's a song many will have to open their minds to.

In "Bounce" Timbaland reunites with superstar Missy Elliot along with Justin Timberlake, and Dr. Dre. You have a unique duo in "One and Only" featuring Fallout Boys which a similar track to "Dance Dance" only with bass beats and subtle flutes in the background. Timbaland shows off in "2 Man Show" featuring Elton John and Kirk Franklin choir.

Almost every song on the CD could become an instant single hit. While "Give It To Me" is a great song I wish Timbaland had took a bolder route and released a more unique track. On the plus side the CD is a pure club banger!
