Ballads like "Never Again" and "Nothin' Else" bear the markings of classic break-up songs but far from licking his wounds throughout the rest of this debut, Timberlake includes a number of cuts that celebrate being single including the Timbaland-produced cut "Right For Me" and equally the thumpin' "Rock Your Body." Other names this teen idol nabbed in a quest for credibility are red-hot producers The Neptunes and P.Diddy.In keeping an R&B element as the touchstone for this debut, Timberlake dishes out a number of surprisingly stellar songs including the very mellow, Stevie Wonder-flavored "Nothin' Else," Latin-soaked "Senorita" and infectious "Like I Love You." In delivering such a mature record, Justin Timberlake has created a springboard to bigger and better future projects.
