  1. Timberlake, having failed to imprint his personality on 'Justified', simply stands or falls on the strength of the songs. Luckily for him, half a dozen of them - mainly Timbaland's - are brilliant.

    Unlike some other singers, Timberlake never seems a puppet of his hot producers. [#12, p.154]
  3. Justified is just sound and posturing, with no core.
  4. Timberlake and the Neptunes work hard at creating memorable songs, an admirable undertaking given the pathetic state of songwriting in pop music. But little more is expressed in songs like "Señorita" and "Take It From Here" than flowery notions of romance or brusque come-ons.
  5. There's so little substance here, it's difficult to engage with the record or its creator.

    He's an even limper pastiche of [Michael] Jackson than Jackson himself. [Jan 2003, p.123]

    " Justified " tem seus altos e baixos, mas no geral, Justin Timberlake sempre possui uma carta na manga. (B-)
