Justin Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience a Listeners Bad Experience

Anyone who knows me, knows that I’ve been in love with Justin Timberlake since his Nsync days; So when I heard he was coming out  from his 10 year musical hiatus with an album called ” The 20/20 Experience” I had to get it. Being a Timberlake fan, it kills me to say that I absolutely hated this album. I was expecting better from him.

Each of the songs, to me, sounded completely  flat and dull. In addition, they were all so alike that it was hard for me to tell where one ended and the other began. I think his effort to show people a different side of him failed.

Before I actually went to listen to the album I had heard a lot of buzz about two of the tracks, “Suite and Tie” and “Pusher Lover Girl”, but just like the rest of the album, these too were a big disappointment.

The track entitled “Pusher Lover Girl” was extremely repetitive and annoying. Besides a few catchy slogans and rhyming words, the entire song kept repeating the title over and over. On top of that, the next one, “Suite and Tie”, was very awkward for me. There where points in the song where I wasn’t sure if he was making a sexual comment or if he was just trying to fill some time before the chorus came up so he could mention his suite and tie.

These are not the songs I would imagine people would play at a party if they actually wanted people to dance and sing along. The overall CD was slow and the whole time I found myself waiting for the songs to end because it meant I was closer to the CD being over. His work on this CD was less than perfect and I’m contemplating not even being a fan anymore. You would think that Justin, having a 10 year break, would produce something better than what he did.
