This is everything I love in a Justin Timberlake song: Urban, dark, edgy, heavy beat, scratchy effects, flawless mid-range baritone vocals, smooth layered harmonies, and 7 minutes long of so much pre-chorus, chorus, post-chorus, bridge, and breakdown that you won’t even be sure which is which. This song is just what I needed after “Suit & Tie”, “Mirrors”, and “Take Back The Night”, which while respectively great, were a little more light and airy, leaving me thirsty for some deep 808 thumping.
The song is reminiscent of “Tunnel Vision”, but more refined, with more dramatic contrast in verse/chorus structure, and more emphasis on melody - all wrapped up in a tidy little Timbaland package with a signature Justin beatbox outro that will knock you right out. ★★★★☆

Finally added the 2009 GQ I bought on Ebay. (I had a Details mag holding it’s place and it was killing my compulsiveness) The rest I bought over the years when they were in stores. Now my Justin GQ/RollingStone wall is complete! Happy Birthday Justin Timberlake!
