Justin Handsomelake

Swoon! Justin Timberlake is back! He never really went too far away just kind of hopped into terrible movies for a couple of years, but now JT has returned to us with a new album and it's a hell of a lot better than his movies.

The 20/20 Experience  is the new album. If you have heard the 2 singles 'Suit and Tie' and 'Mirrors' then you will have a pretty good idea of what this album is about. It's very much a Justin Timberlake record, and some consider it a little bit too similar to his previous album Futuresex/Lovesounds but I wont condemn it for that because I really liked that album. My only criticism is that the lyrics are quite generic party/'I like to watch girls dance' lyrics but I think most JT fans buy his music expecting that and wont be disappointed. As if one album wasn't exciting enough last month JT announced that the 'second half' of The 20/20 experience will be tentatively released in September!

If you only listen to a few songs off of 20/20 make sure you check out Mirrors (which is easily the best song on the album), That Girl and Let the Groove Get In.

All in all I think this new album is on par with Futuresex/Lovesounds and a hell of a lot better than 2002's Justified so give it a listen and maybe have a bit of a dance to it in your living room like I do.

Check out this AMAZING performance of Mirrors on SNL:
