EDITORS’ NOTES

With hints of Americana and help from Chris Stapleton, the pop superstar enters a new chapter. Dually inspired by his Tennessee roots and growing family—Timberlake's son, Silas, was born in 2015—Man of the Woods imbues his signature R&B grooves with harmonica and fiddle. It’s a bold move, but he never drifts too far from home. "The Hard Stuff” and Stapleton collaboration “Say Something” are pop-rock ballads with flickers of Nashville, while the Timbaland-assisted “Filthy” and The Neptunes-produced “Higher Higher” are natural continuations of his beat-minded classics (think: “SexyBack” and “Suit & Tie”). The standout? “Morning Light,” a neo-soul duet with Alicia Keys that’s so textured and expressive, it makes you wonder if there’s anything JT can’t do.

Most Versatile Musician Ever

Pure talent. Love that he keeps it simple and light in a day where all around is politics. He takes you away from all of that while keeping it grounded. So much variety on this album he’s truly a musicians musician!

Major disconnect...

I made the mistake of bragging about this album and saying how Justin never disappoints and I immediately downloaded all the tracks and I found 4 decent out of the whole album three of which were released before it came out. The album sounds like a b side album. I didn’t expect the same sound, but I didn’t expect the disconnect and mediocre lyrics and beats. I have listened to this album in its entirety trying to find the reason for the major hype Justin gave us, but I can’t. All his other albums were phenomenal and not because I personally thought they were, but because they were more eclectic and told a story. Sorry JT. I can’t listen to this one and be satisfied. I still think he is talented but he has never talked up an album like he did this one so expectations were high and now streaming and record sales are low. It’s like an overdubbed Robin Thicke meets JT album. I still can’t enjoy it.
