Justin Timberlake - Man of the Woods [Album Review]
'The title of the fifth studio album by Justin Timberlake, Man Of The Woods comes from the meaning of his first child’s name; Silas – meaning “man of the forest”, and leaves the rich and extravagant sounds of his previous effort The 20/20 Experience (2013) behind, for a more familiar Pop/R&B style for a large part of the album.
The familial links don’t end there though, as the album features recordings of his two year old son Silas, the return of old friends The Neptunes, and his wife Jessica Biel also appears on several tracks including an interlude entitled “Hers“.
Production credits include the likes of Timberlake himself, Danja, long-time collaborator Timbaland (who has been ever-present on Timberlake’s solo albums), and a long awaited reunion between Timberlake and The Neptunes; who helped mastermind much of his successful first solo effort after splitting from N*Sync, Justified, but have been noticeably absent from every LP since then due to label disputes.
