INTRO (by DJ Felli Fel)
Featuring Justin Timberlake, in typical Timbo fashion, the track’s got a dark vibe to it. JT sounds different on the track, almost somewhat lower/less “I’m using my falsetto-style”. I like the way he rides the beat around the hook and the tune does grow on you when the hook loops over and over nearer the end of the song.
MEET IN THE MIDDLE
Featuring Bran’Nu (Brandy) – this song might grow on me as I really like Brandy as an artist and I think she meshes with the beat nicely, but this jam isn’t all that exciting…
TOMORROW IN A BOTTLE
Featuring Chad Kroeger & Sebastian
WE BELONG TO THE MUSIC
Featuring Miley Cyrus. I’m not a fan of Ms Cyrus and I’m not feeling her on this track, but I’m sure if this was released it would be a hit because anything she touches turns to gold.
MORNING AFTER DARK
Featuring SoShy and Nelly Furtado.
Thank you for this song.
Only joint I can say that I 100% feel right now, maybe I’m just in a really unappreciative mood, but nothing else has really tickled my fancy.
IF WE EVER MEET AGAIN
Featuring Katy Perry. This song sounds so much like something else, but I just can’t put my finger on it : /
CAN YOU FEEL IT
Featuring Sebastian & Esthero.
Ugh – YES I CAN : )
Like this beat. Esthero’s vocals are COOL>
Can you feel it – let’s go…
The breakdown at the end = best bit.
These strobe lights, girl girl
The flashing lights, girl
So welcome to my nightlife world..WORL’ORLD
(that little skit reminds me of somethin’ Will.I.Am would come up with)
EASE OFF THE LIQUOR
This is another jam. The bass is funky. TIMBO IS BACK. 3.46 onwards – love the strumming of the g.u.i.t.a.r. Hispanic vibe, YES. Now I’m hearing variation = enjoyment occurring
2 drinks is the minimum
Featuring The Fray & Esthero.
TIMOTHY WHERE YOU BEEN
This track = breath of fresh air, has a very different ‘atmosphere’ to much of the album. It’s nice to hear a guitar instead of the synthesised, electro, artificial beats that have dominated the previous songs. Jet and JoJo are nice additions to this track.
EDIT – I actually <3 this jaaaaaam.
LONG WAY DOWN
Basically remixing OneRepublic’s song, like he did with “Apologize”, but I MUCH prefer the original version of “Marchin’ On” off of “Waking Up”…
THE ONE I LOVE
Featuring Keri Hilson & D.O.E.
Featuring Attitude, Bran’Nu & D.O.E.
My worry with this album is that the artists are bigger than the songs themselves. I looked at the tracklisting and saw all these big names; Brandy, Katy Perry, JT, Drake, Miley Cyrus, but I think the songs underwhelm. I found myself enticed by SHOCK VALUE, some of those beats were so SICK that they should have been illegal…whereas this time, I’m left wanting more. Having just listened to it once, everything sounds too similar. However that’s not to say I hate it all…
Standout tracks: Carry Out, Say Something, Morning After Dark, Can You Feel It, Ease Off The Liquor, Timothy Where Have You Been
