I have never felt the need to write a review before, but Timbaland's album warrants it. I bought this album on a whim. I loved his past productions on artists like Missy Elliott, Justin Timberlake and Nelly Furtado and was curious to see what kind of album he would produce. It is different to other albums and it is indeed ECLECTIC. My favourite track is 'apologise' but I also like 'miscommunication' and many others. The only track I can't listen to is his track featuring Elton John. I am not the kind of person who is prone to playing albums repetitively but this album is incredible. This is my favourite album to come out since Lyfe Jennings (very different but it blew me away at the time). This album is unique and probably won't appeal to everyone's taste but give it a try. You might be blown away like me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 10 April 2008
Format:Audio CD
The more you listen to it, the more addicted you will become. This album has tracks to sort all moods not just hard core hip hop fans. The man is a genius. It is one of only a few albums that I can repeatedly listen to over and over again and never tire of. Highly recommend it,especially if you like Dre, JT and R&B

This album comes across as the culmination of the work Timbaland has been working through on Furtado and Timberlake's discs creating a trilogy of sorts. It is a good album in its own right, with a feel very much like a highly refined yet still edgy mash-up in the manner of Jay-Z and Linkin Park's 2004 topper.

As a listen to this I found it funny that the some of songs I thought I would like - end up being my least favorite, while the songs that I thought I would hate end up being my favorite. Songs like "Bounce" was highly anticipated, but didn't deliver. Dre's verse is entirely too short, and quite meaningless, then to be followed up by Justin Timberlake - it just didn't mesh well. "Give It To Me" gets old real quick, with annoying vocals by Nelly, an on-going droning beat that rarely changes, and conceited lyrics by Timbo and JT. Great for the club, I suppose. "Release" is a throw back to JT's album. "Boardmeeting," "Way I Are," "Oh Timberland," "Throw It On Me," are pretty decent but is easily forgettable. In terms of collaborations this is a good CD. Tracks like "Time" with "She Wants revenge" and "Apologize" with "One Republic" stand out on the CD as indications that Timbaland really can do whatever he wants, and makes something sound good to the followers of whatever genre he chooses to play in.

If you liked Collison Course and any of Timbaland's recent work heard on the radio this album is definitely worth your time and money. If you have found most of it annoying then purchase the tracks you like and avoid the rest but I guarantee that you'll find at least one song to respect on here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shock value: Shocking lyrics but what an album 14 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
This album is brilliant. Considering there are 19 tracks it is definately value for money. Nearly every song could be a single! There are some appalling lyrics at times: "I got a bungalow we could disappear for a week or so" ???(Dr. Dre featuring in Bounce) But if you can get past the slightly strange choice of lyrics this album is awesome. Best songs are: "The way I are" "scream" and "apoligize" (from up and coming band OneRepublic). If you like "Give it to me" then you wont be dissapointed. Best album i've bought this year.

OK I love the sounds that Timbaland is creating around his work with Nelly and JT, but this album fails to live up to the hype, there are some notable tracks Apologise" with One Republic, of course, "One and Only" with Fall Out Boy and the massive "The Way I Are".

There are more great tracks, but the less said about certain ones the better.

The Nina Simone rip off of `Sinnerman' on "Oh Timbaland" for one. The album samples way too much for my liking, and the original lyric or creative vocals are tainted by the fact that this album appears to be manufactured in a lot of ways.

The album deserves four stars for the likeable quality and listenable factor, it is one I'd play again and enjoy. I just think this creative talented producer could do better next time. He is evolving as an artist, so the next album will be make or break for T, let's hope it doesn't fall flat on it's face like his contemporaries are doing at the moment.

Shock Value is worth an addition to any hip-hop fans list, and more worthy of recent releases by 50-Cent and Kanye West.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing 25 Jan 2009
Format:Audio CD
I found this very disappointing and can't understand for the life of me why it's had so many good reviews. I bought it expecting stuff of the same calibre as the appallingly-named 'The Way I Are' and Justin Timberlake's last album, which Timbaland had some input on. But the tracks were very underwhelming. There were a few ok tunes, the best of which was Scream, but too much of the repetitive, sexist, droning gansta-style stuff I've come to know and yawn to, without anything inspiring to lift it up. Overall it's a lazy piece of work.

3.0 out of 5 stars Weaker than expected 5 April 2007
Format:Audio CD
I would have to agree with many of the previous reviewers that were a bit disapointed.

I was expecting Timbaland to have kept all his best stuff for his own release but unfortunately the overall content does not match his work on 'Loose' or 'Futuresex/Lovesounds'.

The lead single 'Give it to Me' is fantastic but I wasn't convinced many of the other tracks matched it and nothing particularly groundbreaking. 'Give It To Me' aside my favourites were 'The Way I Are', 'Apologize' and '2 Man Show'.

I think where this CD fails is the collaborations. With some of the names featured you expect something particularly memorable. Nicole Scherzinger is hardly recognisable on 'Scream' and the track doesn't even compare to her collaboration with Diddy. As a Justin Timberlake fan I was disapointed with the two other tracks featuring him. 'Release' even sounds like some of the vocals could have been recycled from Justin's 'Futuresex/Lovesounds'... the backing vocals sound almost identical to 'Sexyback' at points.

Conclusion... by all means buy this if you're a fan of Timbaland but don't expect to dig the entire CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars didn't use to like him but I do now
I think Justine is like Brad Pitt, he was judged on his looks not his talent for so long and I think now Justine is looked upon as a good artists...

interesting album...

4.0 out of 5 stars Timbalands Debut Solo?
I'm not sure that it counts as stated above as his debut solo. With all the guest vocals - surely the Timbaland albums with Magoo on are solo's as well. Read more
