5.0 out of 5 stars Justin, you da MAN!, 4 Nov 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Justified (Audio CD)
Now I'm more an R&B/Hip-Hop kinda girl, but for the last week Trevor Nelson has been waxing lyrical about this album so I decided to buy it and OH MY GOD, it is fantastic! Believe me, all the hype is true.
There are 14 songs on "Justified" and I liked pretty much all of them.
The first track, Senorita, is really good. Produced by the Neptunes, it has this Spanish vibe going on and Justin's voice sounds great. Really good to dance to.
Two more of my favourites are the Timbaland-produced, "Cry me a River" and "(oh no) What you got". Both are really catchy and sound like nothing else on the market at the moment. "Cry me a River" is gunna be the next single, and with good reason; it's amazing, really powerful.
Another great track is "Rock Your Body", produced by the Neptunes. It's very '70s pop/R&B and damn it makes you wanna shake that boot-ay!
The two slower, more soulful tracks; "Never Again" and "Last Night" are both excellent. "Never Again", produced by Brain McKnight in particluar.
There is also a hidden track (track 14) which is *amazing*. It's very mellowed-out and compliments Justin's voice beautifully.
The two songs I didn't like as much were "(and she said) Take me Now" and "Let's take a Ride". "Let's take a ride" was a bit too Burt Bacharach-esque for me and "(and she said)...", featuring Janet Jackson, was just, well, I thought it would be better, more sultry somehow. It might grow on me...
So all in all, "Justified" is a really good album, which shows off Justin's skills to full effect. Damn, that boy is talented! There were no tracks I really disliked, and about half a dozen that I absoluted *loved* and have been playing on repeat. The hidden track (just let the CD carry on playing) is a really cool surprise, and in my opinion is one of the best songs on the album (Justin why the heck did you hide it? It's really good!) Mysterious... anyway if you like R&B/Pop, you will like this. The Neptunes and Timbaland have done a magnificent job and come up with some dope beats which coupled with Justin's vocals make extremely good songs.
However, NSYNC fans be warned, it's not like any of their stuff and it's not bubblegum pop. If "Gone" and "Girlfriend" are your thing, go straight ahead. If you think that "Bye Bye Bye" was the pinnacle of their musical career, STAY AWAY.
All in all, well worth the wait. Justin, you're gonna go far!
