Overview

Justified

From the moment 'N Sync dropped their bubblegum-pop debut in 1998, it was obvious that blond charmer Justin Timberlake would be the boy band's breakout star. Four years later, Timberlake finally kicks off his solo career with 2002's surprisingly soulful, R&B-and hip-hop-drenched Justified. Vocally, the Tennessee native sounds more than ever like his idol, Michael Jackson, most noticeably on the pulsating, Neptunes-produced single, "Like I Love You," where Timberlake even yelps à la Jacko. In all, the Neptunes helped craft about half of the disc's 13 songs, including the string- and-synth-laden "Last Night" and the disco-inspired "Rock Your Body." For the rest, Timberlake looked primarily to hip-hop kingpin Timbaland, who applied his trademark techniques to the slinky, bass-heavy club thumper "(And She Said) Take Me Now," featuring Janet Jackson, and the dramatic, synth-and-beat box-accented original "Cry Me a River," on which a wronged Justin -- who puts his own lyrical stamp on most of the songs -- takes potshots at an ex, possibly Britney Spears. In his shimmering falsetto, he sings: "You don't have to say what you did/I already know/I found out from him." Oops, looks like Brit did it again. While Justified is obviously conceived as a springboard to grown-up, international superstardom, Timberlake doesn't completely forsake his core audience, closing the disc with the syrupy, Brian McKnight-produced ballad, "Never Again," on which he once again bemoans lost love. " 'Forgive me' says that I should give you one more try/But it's too late/It's over now," he coos, and one can already imagine an accompanying, sepia-tone video astride the TRL countdown. Whether he's singing the teen-pop breakup blues or conjuring images of Jackson in his prime, Timberlake assures that his ascent to solo stardom is more than Justified.

Justin really separated himself from his past with 'NSYNC. Even though his album sort of has the same feel, it is definitely an expression of who is and who he wants to be.

THIS CD IS THIS BOYS COMING OUT PARTY HE WAS GOOD WITH N'SYNC AND THEY WERE GOOD BUT THIS BOY IS TRUE R&B HIP HOP IN HIS HEART AND THAT IS WHAT HE DOES HERE HE SHOWS US THE JUSTIN HE HAS HAD TO COVER UP FOR SO LONG. HE LEFT BRITNEY AND HIS CAREER IS SOARING WHILE HERS IS GETTING FURTHER AND FURTHER PLAYED OUT. HE IS BLOWING UP AND SHE IS PRETTY FADING AWAY. CD IS SMOOTH AND HIS LYRICS ARE TRUE. ITS A HIT.

Justin has really proved to be a maturing artist.He's managed to overcome his breakup with Britney Spears and become a mager success with his first solo album.The album was great it delivers a great mix of r&b and pop flavor. I listen to it all the time and I really believe HE WILL BECOME the next Micheal Jackson. He's hot, young, talented and is way better off without Britney.

With a style and flare that any music fan could love, Justin Timberlake brings to music what Michael Jackson's Invincible album could only hope to be. It delivers raw and fresh beats over a soothing voice that only this former NSYNCer can produce. If you love R&B, Michael Jackson and of course Justin Timberlake than you'll love this album. But even if you don't I strongly recomemend picking this one up; it's one of the years best!

How much more of this pop garbage will we be forced to see clog the racks of cd stores. Instead of just pumping out pre-package pop bs music why don't the record industries put out higher quality music? Heard the first single of this guys work. Do yourself a favor steer clear, it'll be worth your time and money.

Immimating MJ, or trying to immimate someone who is the King of Pop is total wrong, espcially, when it's done so poorly! So Save your money! Unless You like to hear the sound of someone's voice screaching. It's so poorly done. This Album get's an F-.

Get his CD. He has great talent, can really sing, and is soooo!!!! CUTE. His songs are so impressive. I can't believe he done it without the rest of the group. Going solo thats the thing. I really love TAKE IT FROM HERE, LIKE I LOVE YOU, LAST NIGHT, NOTHING ELSE, TAKE ME NOW, ROCK YA BODY, RIGHT FOR ME, SENORITA, and others. Boy, if you just love listening to beautifully composed music GET THE CD!!!!!!! And for all you girls who just love him he is MINE!!!!!!!

I have always like N'Sync so I thought that I would like Justin's cd. Man was I ever WRONG!!! There is one good song on there, the rest is trash. I am not saying it to be tacky just honest. Whoever compared this to the old Michael Jackson music is tone deaf. Poor Justin I am sure you are an ok guy but stick to N'Sync this it terrible.

I love his music! I think he is doingjust fine on his own and he could do well later in life. Justin has touching music. I'm glad he's not dating Britney Spears!!

Justin tries too hard to be like Michael Jackson...i mean c'mon...stop the impersonation...all of his songs sound a like...i mean the neptune beats are off the chain and all but there is just too much! Next time keep it real J.

This should win for album of the year at this upcoming grammy's. It is one of my favorite albums and Justin is a way better artist outside of NSYNC. He truly has unique good songs on it, and should gain respect for his music more than for what he has done and what he looks like. That's what he said he wanted people to do in a Rolling Stone article. Only a few songs aren't that great, but the rest is excellent. This is an album you have to own.

This album is great. It combines all the types of music into one, and what makes each one good is that Justin's got the voice, the style, and the enthusiasm to make it that way.

Justin Timberlake's Justified is a beauitful collection of soul,art,sex and style. This is one of the best albums this fall. Most of the tracks are R&B and are to die for. Each song has it's own breakdown, which comes into the middle of each song that changes your life. I can relate so well to every one of his songs, since he and I share the same sign AQUARIUS. I feel that if i recorded an album it would sound like Justified. I want the whole world to hear this album. SO, just check out Justified and feel the bliss. Keep up the good work Justin & pass me the ball!

There truly isn't a bad track on this album. When I found out that Timbaland & the Neptunes were gonna be responsible for this album, I knew how good it could be. And, man, does this album deliver! "Cry Me A River" has got to be one of Timbaland's best tracks and Justin sings the heck out of it. The Neptunes turn in an ingenious lo-fi production in "Like I Love You" and the results are sublime. The Neptunes are by far the most adventurous producers on this album but Timbaland is the funkiest. Brian McKnight paints by numbers at the end but Brian McKnight's at his worst (which he certainly isn't here) is better than most producers on a good day. The Underdogs do an admiral job with their offering. Overall, an amazing debut listen from an artist who knew exactly what he was doing. Makes you wonder what the equally-talented JC Chasez' solo album will sound like. In the end, you almost wonder to yourself... "N-who??"

Hey!! Justin is obviously a cutie, but he has brains too!! Not to mansion an awesome voice. This boy can sing!! Let me tell yah. When I first heard that he was going solo, I ran to the store to see if his CD was out, and it was so I bought it. I couldn't stop listening to it! He has just this sweetheart voice that you would want singing you to sleep at night, every night!! He has always been my favorite of the five N'SYNC guys. Now he has gone solo and is better that ever. He wrote most of the songs for the band, and in this CD he wrote all. His sweet lyrics are just amazing. He has such talent and shows off his stuff in this album. I can't wait for his next!! He is one of the best singers out there so you definitely have to give him props for that. If you buy this CD you won't only see his boyish looks, but his sick voice too!!

Im not a fan of Justin Timberlake or N'Sync however my girlfriend is (What a surprise huh) But I must say, Although I dont particularly enjoy his music "Justified" has a much more mature vibe to it than his previous work with N'Sync. He is a talented vocalist and although I dont "feel" his kind of music I can appreciate it. Aside from a few tracks where he goes overboard with the high notes it is tolerable.. And for me to give him that much credit is saying something.

This CD is awesome! Justin definitly variated himself. Hip-hop, a little rap, definitely dance...perfect for a party! With a little Old School mixed in, it's definitly my favorite CD yet. I'm sure that his solo career, although it may not last long, depending on the group, will be a success. Way to go Justin! Congratulations!
