    It's not just that this guy is the douche satchel of the year. He has genuine talent. But he wouldn't have made it to the top of the charts were it not for Pharrel's label rescuing him and grooming him to chart success. Of course a couple of pairs of breasts and a gyrating Cyrus helped people to keep talking about him. He is a walking, singing pastiche of all that is offensive, mindlessIt's not just that this guy is the douche satchel of the year. He has genuine talent.

Of course a couple of pairs of breasts and a gyrating Cyrus helped people to keep talking about him. He is a walking, singing pastiche of all that is offensive, mindless and common. To the point where his existing talent is obscured by it all. Of course he's no different from the average rapper in terms of song content or abuse of women in videos. But it's more noticeable with him because beneath the abhorrent surface of this album lies true soul. It's a shame. Expand

    A lot of these songs sound dated, but not in a fresh way. "Feel Good" sounds like Calvin Harris/Sam Sparro circa 2008. "Give It 2 U" sounds straight out of 2003. Other tracks sound like they could be fillers on his previous albums. As massive as Blurred Lines the single was, this album is not a game changer for him.

    It's blurred alright! this album doesn't have any focus except a quick hit. It's all downhill from the first track. He changes his singing style so much with each song till it's annoying.

    Dear lord. How on earth was blurred lines such a success. It is SUCH A FORGETTABLE SONG!!! But despite that, none of the other songs are very memorable as well. I highly doubt he'll be well remembered in a few years

    What’s striking is how unambitious most of the rest of the album is, especially the half that’s produced by Mr. Thicke with his longtime production partner Pro-Jay.

    Thicke's record is wonderfully, brilliantly uncool, a ties-round-the-head, Grandma-friendly wedding reception anthem; and there's more where that came from. [Sep 2013, p.101]

    This is the album that Justin Timberlake is too famous to make in 2013, its musical scope and track lengths modest, its sexual appetite and commercial ambition immodest, its star willing to offer up whatever cheesy line, vocal acrobatic, pop hook or funk groove or electro flourish that it takes to keep you listening.
