White again! I mean...right! I'm not a member of his fan club, but Justin Timberlake is supremely talented. As good as he is, though, it's Michael who deserves legend-status props for originating the ultra high-pitched "Heee heeee," and "OWW!"

If someone says James Brown did that first, I'll have to break your neck.

Timberlake is a better singer. I think you guys just explained why better than I could.

I will agree that MJ's annoying grunts, screeches and made-up words make it hard to talk about his musicianship seriously, but even so ...

... Justin WISHES he could be as big as Jackson was.

He clearly looks up to Jackson, but the problem is that being famous is pretty much all there is to MJ. Not a great songwriter, not a musician, not a great singer. He can dance. Big fucking deal.

I'll also add that Futuresexx/Lovesounds has a hell of a lot more cohesion than Thriller, and even if the individual tracks don't stand out as much, there are at least 5 killer tunes on it, and it's a more impressive overall album. And I understand that Timbaland is a big reason for that.

Laz's worst nightmare:

A 4 hour film about Michael Jackson, with Tom Hanks in some sort of key role, directed by Steven Spielberg.

I guess that's why we keep butting heads on this - I'll take an album that has 8 killer tracks over an album that has 4 great tracks but has more "cohesion."

I'm more about the songs themselves than an overall album.

But I do like Timberlake a lot more than I ever thought I would. I enjoy his singles a lot.

And on the subject of JT... I resisted a lot at first, but I have to say I quite enjoy his music.

Heee heee! I forgot about that...maybe he's a distant cousin, or someone he holds great reverence for.

You're counting Baby Be Mine and The Lady in My Life as killer tracks?

I think FutureSex, SexyBack, My Love, LoveStoned/I Think That She Knows, What Goes Around..., Damn Girl, Chop Me Up, and Until the End of Time are all awesome. Summer Love and Another Song... are both decent, the only real clunker being Losing My Way. Now granted he doesn't have 7 Top 10 songs, but that's virtually impossible in today's market anyway. This album has more great hooks than any pop/R&B album I've heard in years.

The reason I love this album so much is that he isn't just taking direction from MJ; there's a distinct Prince influence on the album that really expands JT's palette--he's willing to challenge his audience a bit with some more abrasive sounds and a variety of style that defies easy categorization. Just check out that guitar part that segues between LoveStoned and I Think That She Knows--that hits something much deeper than your standard party music.
