Justin Timberlake – 20/20 Expereince Part 2 of 2 (album)

3 singles and 6 months after the 20/20 Experience we get Justin Timberlake’s follow up Experience part 2 of 2; now anyone thinking that after taking nearly seven years away from the music scene Timberlake would only manage to gather enough material for one album think again, with most of the song writing and production credit’s virtually the same as Part1, one can only assume these are the tracks that didn’t make the final cut for Part1.

With the lead off single Take Back The Night taking a disco direction, with luscious horns, one could be forgiven for thinking that 2of 2 would take a different direction then the second single TKO was premiered, which sounded like an Aaliyah off cut leaving VeReViews with a feeling that 2 of 2 would be more of the same, Timbaland’s trademarked kitchen sink production and heavy beats with Timberlake’s Jackson aping vocals.

Part 2 of 2 weighs in at a mighty 75 minutes with 1 track – True Blood coming in at 9 minutes and 31 seconds, this track could have done with being edited down, it morphs into a sub Thriller like track but to be honest it doesn’t’ cut the mustard, this song is for hardcore fans only.

Highlights on Part 2 are Take Back The Night on which Justin does disco; Drink You Away is this the closest we have come to a commercial country track from Justin? Amnesia and Not A Bad Thing and finally the hidden track the delightful and Timbaland free Pair Of Wings

Now Timberlake and Timbaland do not scrimp on the amount of songs and minutes they give you on both experiences but sometimes less is more
