At least he's mixed up the genres a little, with a couple of country-tinged tracks, and some techno/dance beats as well as the expected hip-hop-smothered pop.
Timberlake pays tribute to Michael Jackson in two tracks. True Blood is akin to Thriller, with its wolf howls, driving beats and vampire references, not to mention its length. And lead single Take Back the Night, the most memorable track, is reminiscent of late 1970s MJ in his disco prime.
Drink You Away is a surprisingly likeable country rock number, while the silky You Got it On could've come from Marvin Gaye's back catalogue, with Timberlake's honey-laced falsetto on lines like "tell me what's better than the two of us?".
After 74 minutes of 20/20, you may feel no desire to bother with the bonus disc, but if you're a fan of old-school JT, don't ignore it - they're far more accessible than any of the "musical landscapes" he's been pushing this year.
