When I first heard this on the radio, I thought 'nice song'. Not being a fan of Justin Timberlake I held back downloading it, but it was always going around in my head.
When a £2 credit offer came up on Amazon MP3, I could justify buying it, and I have to say with headphones and some volume it truly is a great song. Lots of little complexities that I have never been able to appreciate on the radio before. Maybe a bit too long at over 8 minutes (it's good but not that good).
Thought I'd listen to the album demos and was horrified by how rubbish it all sounds. Seriously, this is the only good song on there. Funnily enough I did hear on my local radio station a presenter saying the exact same thing. But 'Mirrors' as a stand alone song is probably his best single yet. (Although I do have to admit I liked 'Sexy Back')
One of the best songs released in 2013. Nice edit of the song with an interesting full version on the 20/20 album. Also a great live version performed by the man himself at the Brits 2013 - go check it out.
