I guess Maxwell’s got it together.  Although the Hoboken, NJ music venue/drinking establishment remains set on closing its doors after its farewell party on July 31, 2013, Maxwell’s was serving up a whole lot of business yesterday night when JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE showed up.  JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE people.  The man after everyone’s hearts performed just one song, “Take Back the Night“, for an upcoming Target commercial to the lucky 150 people who were first to enter the venue.  Maybe Target can give us a little more and convince Maxwell’s to stay open for more surprise visits from people like JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE?

So JT’s album…I bought it the day it came out, but have been terrified to post about it because I don’t think I can do it justice. So, instead of ignoring it, pondering it, and bailing I’m going to post a couple of my FAVORITE songs from this album.

He has already announced that this album is going to be followed by another one later this year hence the 20/20 title. He has explained that his vision won’t be complete without the second album. Right now we are at the 10/20 experience, but oh what an experience it is.

“Let the Groove in,” let your hips be the judge of this track. Its Latin flare with saxophone undertones forces you to picture yourself in a sexy scene of dirty dancing. This is by far my favorite track on the record.

“Don’t Hold the Wall,” I’m waiting patiently for this song to hit the bar/club scene. Timberland and JT kill it on this track–Indian flare with maracas? What will they think of next?

“Mirrors” reminds me of “Cry Me a River” (and he has gotten some heat because they sound similar) but its still a sick jam.

I’m giving you a small taste of this masterpiece; therefore, I highly suggest you take the time to buy the whole album and listen to each song over and over and over again. c.
