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.

In the cold and dark winter months, hiding in the solitude and comfort of my room away from work and students, I absolutely fell in love with James Blake’s first single “Retrograde” from his new album “Overgrown”. A timeless song and one I could happily play on loop into the early hours.

Another cracking hit from Rudimental, it seems they can do little wrong. Since the Hackney collective rose to prominence in 2012 when their single “Feel the Love” topped the UK Singles Chart, they are well and truly working their way up the ranks, earning their fans in thousands and conquering the air space! The new Rudimental album “Home” is available to pre-order now on iTunes, and is set for official release April 29th.
