    This is one of my favorite songs off of Justin Timberlakes Album...

    Its soo peacful and calming and depending on my mood it can be depressing and sad.

    I think Ive listened to it over a 100 times and I could listen to it on repeat all night long.

    The lyrics are very abstract...Whats your interpretation of the song/lyrics?...would to love to hear your take.

    Agreed. Good song.

    I'm not sure what the song is about, but he just recently admitted to using "substances" during the making of the record. That stuff usually helps with abstract lyrics. Whatever the case, he should keep doing stuff like this.

    Very different from the tired pop hip hop influenced songs everyone's so used to hear from him.
    It is quite abstract, moody, and almost ethereal.
    I like it. icon_cool.gif

    He's never impressed me with anything he's done. I always get the feeling someone else has done his songs before and did them better. Whether it's Michael Jackson, Usher, or Robin Thicke. He's not that original to me.

    feels like the only progressive track on the album for him
    kinda wished it opened it and jumped off from there, its a great track.
    the rest plays out like a bonus CD to the last albumicon_confused.gif

    This is the only track off the album I skip yet I keep hearing such great things about it.

    Probably because it's the type of atmospheric track you need to be in the right mood for.

    I kind of agree with this. Something about him just doesn't seem genuine.

    Interesting. I literally think he and Beyonce are the realest of our time. In regard to vocal talent, performance, and just all-around stardom, he's got it in the bag. It's saying a lot, I know, but I think he's the closest we have to Michael Jackson, and Michael Jackson is my all-time favorite.

    I'm not the biggest JT and Beyonce fan, but I think it's pretty obvious they're the best in the world. Usher and and Robin Thicke couldn't hold a candle to what Justin does. Maybe old Usher, but...

    Plus, he uses Timbaland for the majority of his beats, which is a good move, considering Timbaland is unbelievably talented.

    I'm a huge Bey fan and a JT admirer. Justin is consistent and puts quality music; I can't take that away from him. Maybe when the hype from the 20/20 Experience dies down, I'll give it a listen.

    I think a lot of artist when staging a come back fill the CD with familiar styled music to pump up their base audience again.
    Then they branch out on their next CD.
    Kelly Clarkson broke her mold and had a much publicized argument with Clive Davis over her new style. I'm glad she followed her heart. It was her best CD yet. There were some deeper, stronger pieces that were much less pop driven.


    I wish Whitney Houston did the same thing with Clive Davis. I recently saw an interview he gave in which Whitney approached hima bout co-writing her songs because Janet and Madonna were doing it and he brushed her off and told her she was a singer not a writer. I think this was tragic because there was obviously a lot of pain barried inside of her that she never got to exorcise like a Mary J. Blige, Lauryn Hill, Madonna, Joni Mitchell, or Janet Jackson. I think her music would have been better had she been given the opportunity to trust and follow her instincts.

    If this is true then the music industry is really fucked up right now.

    I hated his Suit and Tie song, but this is great... love the repeated picture taking noise used through the song. Very peaceful and soothing.

    serene and dark, but still romantic and contemporary. Reminds me of scuba. His music is aging gracefully.
