And Justin presents the first single off his upcoming The 20/20 Experience: 2 of 2 which is just going to be awesome if you loved the first one. Let's hop right in.
Audio for Take Back the Night.
So I haven't touched on JT since his first release of his comeback album, which featured tons of amazing songs such as Suit And Tie, Mirrors and Tunnel Vision, all of which are the singles off the past album. And the album, if I had to review, would most likely reach a 9.5, but let's move on as the remainder of the collection, or the next 10 songs, are still left to be touched.
Take Back the Night features pop disco dance vibes, very nostalgic to what you'd hear from an 80's dance club. The similar styles comparable to those of the late Michael Jackson, and who knew, this song is a staggering amazement straight from the intro. It's very difficult not to love this song, if you loved the 80's dance hits, then this will reach your ear-pumps easily, snaking through like an amazon of magical essence. Also, it's almost easy to hear of Timbaland's production on the song, as it is on any other track from the first album. The grooves are all set-in and Timbaland's introduction of some amazing horns were made for pure pleasure entertainment.
Now you're going to ask, 'if I don't like any of Timberlake's past hits, will I still like this single?' And the truth is, you're not going to. This song features pop-offensive lyrics and almost instantaneous dance-club stances. If you didn't like Suit And Tie as much as say Take Back the Night, then yes, this track will take more than a few listens getting used to, or I suggest plugging in The 20/20 Experience if you have the time. The album is explosive, 10 songs along the array of 70 minutes of just volatile pop explosion that will leave you wanting more. That is, by any indication, a positive note and I really suggest you to do so.
Take Back the Night also focuses on getting you into the vibe than anything else. It's either you feel it or you don't; play it or you won't; enjoy it or skip it. All of this ties in like a summer vacation, so if you ain't in the mood, this song might not captivate you as much.
Take back the night

SOUND: 8/10 - Timberlake's smooth vocals oppress the track simply well.
LYRICS: 8/10 - There is effort, and credit is done where it's due.
OVERALL: 24/30 - Take Back the Night is just amazing on another level with other mainstream radio hits. It is unlike any other, the believer of real music and the deliverance of another. Play it for days and take back the night.
Benny Ong: Just your regular guy who likes soccer more than most people, and also a little downtime is pretty nice.
