Justin Timberlake is finally back, but is it with the big musical bang so many of his fans were hoping for? Sadly for me, it isn’t. J.T always fills me with a feeling of deep nostalgia, and I think back wistfully to the days when the iconic red tea cosy hat of “Like I Love You” was sexy, and when it was cool to attempt the classic “Rock Your Body” beatbox. Yes, we hear the familiar falsetto voice of Timberlake over deep R&B grooves in his come back single “Suit and Tie”,  but it is certainly lacking something. Something, aside from the lack of percussive sounds which punctuated his previous albums, which I cannot quite pinpoint, and I am not convinced Jay-Z adds much to the song other than an additional big name. It is good to know Justin Timberlake is making music again, let us just hope that his upcoming album The 20/20 Exprience will pack more punch.

Overall, a relatively pleasant track, but perhaps it will sound better amidst the sultry temperatures of summer.
