    Just heard this now. Gotta say I'm kinda disappointed after all the hype about JT's comeback. It has a nice retro feel but it's also underwhelming. I was expecting a fresh new sound ala Sexy Back but instead it reminds me of something R Kelly would do. Might be a grower though..........

    Just like the new Destiny Child single, this wasn't worth the hype or wait!

    I heard it this morning on Z100. Didn't like it at all, I agree that it has a retro feel, but it did not sound current to me. Hopefully there will be some better stuff on the album.

    He's fallen into that Michael Jackson trap of taking breaks for too long, losing his currency and believing his music can automatically be above the need for sonic relevancy because of his status. It's funny...this sort of thing doesn't usually happen to pop starts until their late 30s/early 40s, lol.

    I like the JT track quite a lot. But, I'm pretty "retro" myself.

    I actually think this worked for Michael Jackson. His albums were so impactful during their release that he needed to take longer breaks in order to not over expose himself.

    In JT's case his albums don't make as much of an impact as MJ so he doesn't need quite as long of a break. Personally I never liked JT that much, he comes off as inauthentic to me. He doesn't strike me as the compelling R&B artist he hopes to be. Robin Thicke is better at blue eyed soul than he is. And he's never looked that appealing to me. Something contorted within his face that only gets worse with age. He's going to look straight up awkward at 40.

    Agreed that MJ was better at the longer breaks. Because, he added groundbreaking videos that featured unrivaled dance performances for his generation to his musical works. So it wasn't just the music with Michael.

    Perhaps, Timberlake's video will add more context to the song.

    As it is, Suit And Tie sounds a lot like R. Kelly's Step w Robin Thicke's falsettos lacing the track.

    Not that that's a bad thing - it just means it's not transcending.

    I agree that this was a huge let down. Even more disappointing was the fact that other song he performed at the Grammy's sounded almost exactly like this.

    I cut the Jay-Z part out of the second half. The song holds up much better.

    I was happy with Justin Timberlake living off his royalties. He needs to fade into the background.

    Whenever they play the Jay-Z portion, I always change stations. It just doesn't sound like it goes. If I ever put this song on my ipod, I'd have to cut that part out.Otherwise it's an ok song.
