The Rundown: Justin Timberlake, The 20/20 Experience
"Blue Ocean Floor"
This album is in many ways trapped in a time capsule — mired in '70s classic soul and mid-2000s Timbaland/Timberlake. Here the pair seem to take into account the exciting new places folks like Miguel, the Weeknd and Frank Ocean have stretched R&B toward in the past two years. The ethereal, barely-there beat is all smooth textures and reverb, and Justin's lyrics here are easily the most interesting on the album.
