I've put a muzzle on my motormouth in concern about Justin Timberlake and his upcoming comeback album, The 20/20 Experience, as I have more to say on the matter at a later date. All my jibber-jabber will be revealed next week. Promise. In the meantime, Ol' Timbers is currently in PR overdrive, dubbing this week 'Timberweek' and dominating Late Night With Jimmy Fallon nightly with hilarious sketches and performances of tracks from the new set (which has already sprung multiple leaks online, for those who slumber under rocks).
Last night was my favorite night by far not just for the hilarious Michael McDonald sketch, but because Timberlake pulled out one of my favorite numbers from 20/20, the complicated Latin thrasher "Let The Groove Get In". With The Roots and his Tennessee Kids back-up band, Timberlake court and sparks with this hi-NRG number that sounds more like the Justin of Justified yore than those other (atrocious) singles he's put out in the last two months. That pulsating refrain of "are you comfortable, right there, right there" is already lodged in my brain, and too bad so sad, I'm getting it lodged in your brain as well. *cackle*
Side note: Is it just me or are the live versions of these 20/20 tracks sounding better than the album versions? Weird.
