Justin Timberlake – FutureSex/LoveSounds

You know how your friends will say Don’t judge me! right before they do or say something that you are totally going to judge them for?

Well, fuck that and judge me all you want.

I love this damn record.

Seriously, I have loved this damn album ever since it came out over ten years ago.  So, when I saw it randomly pop up on an Amazon vinyl deal for super cheap I knew that I had to own it.

Sidenote: You absolutely need to be checking /r/vinyldeals daily. 

If you are not aware of the funkiest and blackest white man in America, you should educate yourself.  It is no coincidence that Timberlake is from Memphis, home of the Blues and the birthplace of Rock n Roll, and that he can seamlessly meld Stax-style funk and soul with boy band pop and a dash of lily-white techno.  FutureSex/LoveSounds is a record that defies genre identification.

This album is akin to a Michael Jackson or Prince record from the 80s.  It is full of fantastic music that honestly spans formats and audiences.  Again, however, I am biased.

FutureSex/LoveSounds grooves.  It has a constant flow throughout the album that moves you that does not slow down until the end.

FutureSex/LoveSounds is something that you put on the turntable during a party.  It is fun, upbeat, and will get people moving.  Your buddies might scoff at you outwardly while secretly loving it, but the girls will make it known that it was an excellent music choice.

My favorite track: Chop Me Up
