|You were my sun, you were my earth But you didn't know all the ways I loved you, no So you took a chance, made other plans But I bet you didn't think...||See the rest of the song lyrics|
UncutMuch of the album is like 1980 revisited and updated. [Jan 2003, p.115]
BlenderUnlike some other singers, Timberlake never seems a puppet of his hot producers. [#12, p.154]
Q MagazineHe's an even limper pastiche of [Michael] Jackson than Jackson himself. [Jan 2003, p.123]
