FutureSex/LoveSounds Justin Timberlake has been in the spotlight all of his life. From his days over at the Mickey Mouse Club to his tenure with the boyband, NSYNC, to his emergence as a solo artist, we’ve seen JT grow up before our very eyes. With that said, FutureSex/LoveSounds is not what you would expect from the boy scout of the music industry. Timberlake sheds his squeaky clean image and embraces a new sex driven, bad boy façade. At first glance, you would expect this album to be a desperate plea for the world to take him seriously. The album cover shows Timberlake smashing a disco ball and you almost expect the inside to show him apologizing to the janitor. However, the album really is a great listen, with impeccable beats and addictive hooks. Rallying around a string of number one singles, FutureSex/LoveSounds is one of the best albums of 2006. However, the album really isn’t just single and filler, it’s actually well- sequenced and the songs work together as a whole. Most of the tracks have a prelude or interlude, making the album flow together rather nicely. Timberlake has never been the most gifted singer, but he works well with what he has, and the album does a good job
