  • Summary: Aw... little Justin's all grows up. First Mickey Mouse Club, then 'NSync, and now this, his solo debut. Can he be a success on his own? Well, having Timbaland and The Neptunes along as his producers certainly won't hurt.

  1. Few songs on the album are as perfect as [the opening] two, but many of them are nonetheless excellent.
  2. Michael Jackson's probably thinking, "Man, this is the album I should've made last year!"
  3. This is Justin Timberlake squealing like Michael Jackson's pet monkey, a recipe for joy if ever there was one.
  4. 70
    A fun, contemporary pop record that's uber-cool without ever seeming forced.
  5. 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.
  6. 60
    Unlike some other singers, Timberlake never seems a puppet of his hot producers. [#12, p.154]
  7. There's so little substance here, it's difficult to engage with the record or its creator.

    This album is proof that music is therapy. There is so much adventure in this album, you have no idea what you'll hear next. All in all, I'm very impressed. Very tight CD. Expand

    I give it a 9! I can dance to it. Justin Timbaland rules!

    A decent first effort from the ex-N*Sync'er. Justin proves his commercial appeal especially in the second single, "Cry me a river", which is an letter to ex-girlfriend Britney Spears. Expand
