The 20/20 Experience Part 2

Take Back the Night is the perfect start to the final adventure of Justin's "20/20 Experience". It has an MJ vibe and the perfect feel good song. Great job! The final part of this adventure will surely not disappoint!

The 20/20 Experience

I had previously posted a review of The 20/20 Experience, however now that part 2 is available for streaming, I feel it's important to review it as one piece, as this is one album. After hearing part 1 I was absolutely mystified. The mastery of pop and R&B vocals that Justin Timberlake possesses is unreal. The things he does with his voice can truly move someone, if he is allowed by the listener. And there are few if any other pop records I'd say such things about. There is a reason part 1 was the bestselling record of the first quarter, nearly going platinum the week it was released. From the first notes of, "Pusher Love Girl," one can tell this won't be a typical experience with JT. The opening track features lush, orchestral sounds, coupled with an old fashioned and often under rated R&B vocal style, which changes mid way through to a rhythm driven Hip-Hop vibe. It is absolutely wonderful. Next up we have the record's lead single, "Suit & Tie," which again, shows old fashioned vocals which are under used these days. The guest appearance by Jay-Z is always welcome, and enhances the track. From there the record only gets stronger, hitting it's highest points at, "That Girl," and the two final songs, "Mirrors," and, "Blue Ocean Floor," which gives a forshadowing tone to the end of the record through soft, somber harmonies which allow for a new beginning.

And now we kick off part 2 with a high energy song called, "Gimme What I don't Know (I Want)," which has a sort of jungle pop tone, as a lot of older 'NSYNC tracks did, and the momentum sets up the album very nicely. Immediately following is the longest song and second longest track on the record, "True Blood," another dark sort of pop song with a sexual sort of jungle tone. This is something that shouldn't surprise any fans of Justin, as it's a style he has used a lot and is good at. Other notable tracks include, "Cabaret," which features an appearance by Young Money's Drake, one of my personal favorites. Described by JT himself as a stripper anthem, "Cabaret," is the shortest song on the record, but still strong and extremely catchy. After that we head into the two singles, "TKO," and, "Take Back the Night". Both songs are incredibly strong with amazing momentum and rhythm. "Take Back the Night," will remind you of the king of pop, Michael Jackson, which will no doubt bring smiles to the faces of new listeners. We also do see another appearance by Jay-Z on this half of the record on the song, "Murder". The next couple songs are a bit slower, including a rock-esque track entitled, "Drink You Away," which features heavy electric guitar and brings yet another new dimension to the record. The final stretch, which is made up of the tracks, "Amnesia," "Only When I Walk Away," and, "Not a Bad Thing," definitely gives the listener a feel of climax and closure. The final track in particular, "Not a Bad Thing," gives a lot of closure to the record, and is a fantastic way to end. The song itself is a love anthem stating, "It's not a bad thing to fall in love with me," a message pop icons have sung for decades. At a little under 6 minutes in, the song draws to a close, and shortly after, a hidden track comes in. This song features Justin singing a very sweet love song for which a title has not been released, so we'll call it, "Pair of Wings," for now. "Pair of Wings," is different from the rest of the record, and reminds one of, "I'm Coming Over," which was the hidden track on Jason Mraz's Love is a Four Letter Word. The whole song is sung over acoustic guitar and sounds very sincere and sort of less produced. It is a sweet little afterthought and a perfect way to end an amazing record.

Now all of you noticed on part 1, and from the track listing of part 2, that all of these songs, with the exception of, "That Girl," and, "Cabaret," are rather lengthy. If you can't sit through long songs, don't purchase this record. That said, the length was intentionally used by Justin as a tool to allow the listener to drift off to another place through the sounds of the music. The songs are no more repetative than any other pop song, and the instrumental loops are easy to get lost in. I suggest listening to the record, all the way through, with your eyes closed, really paying attention. It will take you away from your life to a place of bliss.

Lastly I would like to say that Justin's marriage played a huge role in the songwriting on this record. Songs like, "Mirrors," and, "Not a Bad Thing," were obviously written for his wife, and even the sex songs I'm sure came from that place, as sex is an important part of a healthy marriage.

Overall, this is an amazing, innovative, and breath taking piece by a man who has been a favorite of ours, from childhood to adulthood, the curly haired blonde of 'NSYNC will steal your heart with this one. Buy it, love it, spread the word.

Interesting

I'll give JT credit for pushing his sound forward. I have a few problems with 20/20. For starters, the songs are too long winded. This would be okay, but the songs are so repetitive that they can't hold your attention for the whole duration. Secondly, most of his songs are about sex and love, just rehashed with different ideas. I just wish he could come up with more engaging material, not just love. However, I do understand he is happily married and love is a topic easily empathized and shared. I wish there had been 3 worldwide singles from part one. A solid effort, hopefully part two is better than "Take Back The Night".

Note: This is all just my opinion.

Biography

Justin Timberlake may be the quintessential pop star of the new millennium, a star who jumped from platform to platform on his way to establishing himself as something bigger than a star: he was a self-sustained empire. Timberlake began his rise as a TV star, performing on The New Mickey Mouse Club as a child in the '90s, but he earned his superstardom as one of the frontmen for *NSYNC, the most popular boy band of the turn of the millennium. Justin stepped away from the band just as its popularity...
