Album Review: Man of the Woods, Justin Timberlake

Today, the long awaited album by Justin Timberlake was released today called Man of The Woods. With his Super Bowl performance just around the corner, it’s only right that he releases an album the same weekend as his performance is going to get people feeling JT crazy.

There has been a lot of speculation as to what the album was going to sound like as his first song Filthy was welcomed with very mixed reviews. His last album the 20/20 Experience was a huge success and was a huge mix of unique styles that really stood out and had some of his best music to date.

Saying that, it means that it is also a very difficult album that he had to follow up. Whilst everyone was speculating that Man of the Woods was going be a country album, that is not the case. Just like the past JT albums he has managed to keep a similar style related to his name whilst also completely taking a fresh approach.

Here are some of the best songs in the album:

Midnight Summer Jam – a really addictive piece of music magic with a huge Justin Timberlake twist to it that embed his original styles and this new fresh take. The one thing that really heightens this song is the harmonica that intertwines throughout the song.

Wave : whilst it may not be one of the strongest songs on the album, it is one to really highlight as a stand out track as it’s very different to other songs. It has a unique style and the guitar really is a highlight factor.

Say Something : this song is a duet and is probably the one that started the rumours that it was going to be a country album. It is a really catchy song and one that really needs to be listened to as it is different to a lot of JT music.

Sauce: This song is catchy and has a really good and strong beat to it. It is one of those songs that has a melody that will get stuck in your head.

Whilst it is home to some good songs, some might argue that it’s not as strong as his older content. However, listening to this album and the merged mix of musical melodies and genres together, it could hint at the musical styling of what is to come in 2018 and the way the music industry could be going. If you are not a fan of Justin, give t a go, you may be surprised and don’t take Filthy as a reflection of the whole album.
