Timbaland - Timbaland Presents Shock Value
Well since it's out and people are talking about I decided to start a review of the whole album, I'll go track by track...
Oh Timbaland-Hot beat and hot piano definitely feeling the track, lyrics aren't that great but what do you expect
Give It To Me-Everbody knows the track is hot. The drums are so infectious and the lyrics are actually a little clever even if they still lack substance. A straight hot ass club banger
Release-Can't really hear Justin Timberlake on this song only at sometimes if you listen carefully. Also you can hear how Timbaland used parts of Justin's song Lovestoned on this track, very catchy.
The Way I Are-Loooovvveee the track, **** gets me pumped. Keri Hilson sounds really good on the track, not to mention the main melody of the beat is addicting
Bounce-Grrriiimmeeey club banger. I think its probably one of the most creative productions on his album. I love it all the beatbox sounds he used and that weird giggling sound he loops is weird but its cool. My sister gets so freaked out by the track lol
Come & Get Me-Beats pretty good, honestly didn't really listen to this track that much, don't really think 50 sounded good over the timbo beat.
Kill Yourself-This song is just funny, its all about Scott Storch. The beat isn't that great, I think he could have done better
Boardmeeting-Very catchy hook, and the sounds are pretty cool as well. Nice to hear Magoo on it
Fantasy-Has a very sexy sound to it, I like all the sounds Timbo is using, this whole electro feel. But problem I have with this track is that the verses sound alot like Ciara's Promise
Scream-Ehh it sounded alot like Fantasy but I liked Fantasy better, song is chill
Miscommunication-Beat is definitley hot and Keri Hilson sounds really good on the track as well
Bombay-Hoootttt song, way to use the Indian aspect. It's cool to see a huge producer like Timbaland make a straight up desi track instead of using Hindi lyrics on the hook or sampling old bollywood stuff. Jim Beanz sounded cool as hell on the song too, only problem is the song was a little too short
Throw It On Me-Personally this is the only song I didn't really like on the album, I don't know why just found it a bit annoying
Time-Like this song, definitely like the chorus with She Wants Revenge. Lyrics werent that bad on this song
One & Only-Not really a fan of Fall Out Boy but this song was pretty cool and I was feelin it pretty catchy as well
Apologize-As I said before, I thought the original was better. The beat definitely is pretty good but I liked the original better
2 Man Show-The piano was amazing on this song, thats what made the song stand out. Definitely good collabo with Timbaland and Elton.
Hello-Yea, didn't really like the track that much,kinda boring...
Come Around-Didn't really like it the first time I heard it but I started to feel it after that. You can see how he sampled from Shamur in Let The Music Play
Yea I was bored and I felt like typin all this up lol but yea here's my review on the whole album, all in all I thought it was hot album and I think Timbaland did a great job on it. Lacked in the lyrics department but this was more of party record rather than something with substance. So it's a pretty dope album

I am not a big fan of this sort of music, but kudos to Timbaland for subverting a basic pop sound. His approach to music; while not wholly original for those who know their stuff, is still a huge step in adding something new to popular music. His rythmns and time sigs are not the norm in chart music.

As for the originality comment I'd like to say that original music is a distant 5th to good music. And as for synapse, yeah it might so long as you haven't told yourself that you hate it and actually just haven't found other works appealing.
