Justin Timberlake’s ‘Man of the Woods’ Named Worst Album of 2018

Published: Thursday 27th Dec 2018 by David

Justin Timberlake‘s ‘Man of the Woods’ is, rather unfortunately, officially the worst album of the year.

Bad news below…

Array

The set saw JT make a bold departure from his sounds of yesteryear and steps towards earthier and abstract territory with help from Timbaland, The Neptunes and Eric Hudson.

Unfortunately, the unstoppable wave of negative press he received for the part he is said to have played in Janet Jackson’s career slump saw him unable to mask the stench whipped up by talk that he is a culture vulture.

Coupled with his refusal to completely sever ties with Woody Allen, his Janet-related drama saw him lose a large chunk of the audience responsible for making him one of Pop’s highest-sellers.

Today he has been met with more bad news.

 

The album’s Metacritic score of 55 makes its the lowest-rated Pop project of the year thanks to reviews like the one below…

The majority of the highlights on Man of the Woods, from the faux-Stevie Wonder groove of “Higher, Higher” to the smooth dance-floor glide of “Breeze Off the Pond,” could have appeared on any Timberlake album, give or take a few pointedly rural references to roadside billboards and canoes. The songs that hew more closely to the Americana vibe, meanwhile, are mostly embarrassing.

Why do you think this has happened?

    I don’t agree with this. He had amazing songs on that album but it was over shadowed by people bringing up that Super Bowl mess with Janet Jackson. Just like they did with Chris Brown.

    • Sorry Justin; BLACK POWER December 27, 2018

      Karma dont forget s*** boo

      • BIGGESTAALIYAHFAN December 27, 2018

        Glad someone said it.

    • MimixRirixCardi December 27, 2018

      Sis it was trash, GTFO. You keep listening to that s***. We hate him for way more things than just how did Janet. This guy is not a good guy. So f*** Him and he can choke on a d***.

      He used to be cute and the king of white boy I would let eat my box until I bust a nut but lately he been giving me stank old queen and I’m not feeling that at all! He needs to get a face lift, facial rejuvination, and BEG Timbaland for some beets because ain’t nobody feeling the new Justin material. That 20/20 Experience swag is where he needs to stay at for a decade or so.

      BTW He just sold his old condo in NYC AT A LOSS. I guess he makes bad choices in real estate but good choices in BEARDS. His wife is a BEARD. I could have been his BEARD and I make a good BEARD. I only cost 1.3 million per year to be a BEARD and full access too hookup with my middle eastern and black ballers who like to spend on me on the low.

    Karma is a b^^^^.

  3. Jackx December 27, 2018

    I have to agree.

  4. Sorry Justin; BLACK POWER December 27, 2018

    i’ve always stanned super hard for JT but that all stopped when he returned to the Super Bowl without breathing ONE FKN WORD ABOUT HIS INVOLVEMENT IN JANET’S CAREER TURMOIL. soo; i am more than happy this happened to him. I am also glad i dropped neary 1k for floor seats to her tour this year. Sadly; like every other WHITE MAN OUT HEA, JT knows what he can do to rectify this mess he’s found himself in; but he wont cuz- EGO… bye timberlake

    The lies, not when Dummyboy has a 39 on metacritic. JT has 5 positive reviews and 21 mixed reviews. He’s the most talented singers of the 2000s period. 60k Jantit stans arent gonna change that, when the best you can do is get Jantit to chart in the top 80 on the hot 100. JT also has sold 775k copies sps in the US, so much for being a “flop” ☠️ he did all that without a tour bundle. And his tour grossed 150M with 77 shows too. JanTit stans tried to hard with this false narrative that he’s over when it’s quite the contrary. i’m loving this new friendship of the Janitors and the racist Britney army though. Son Of A Gun, JanTit thot she could get her cake and eat it too indeed.

      F*** you

    • The Royal Highness R.A.S.P.U.T.I.A. (Pronounced ‘Rah’ – ‘SPEW’ – ‘Cha’) December 27, 2018

      Shut up F.AGGOT. You just thirsting after Justin’s funky balls but he a BOTTOM fool. You and him need to bow down and lick the ground Janet walks on. Then you both can come to my palace and clean my floors with your tongues.

      • JanTit Jackson December 27, 2018

        the ghetto..

      • Audreyherbsburn December 27, 2018

        Janet wouldn’t appreciate you using that word in her defense….

      • The Royal Highness R.A.S.P.U.T.I.A. (Pronounced ‘Rah’ – ‘SPEW’ – ‘Cha’) December 27, 2018

        Ain’t NOTHING wrong with the word f.aggot. It has been a word since FOREVER. It is NOT synonymous with gay so gays need to stop pretending to be offended by it. If you are a f.aggot or act like one I will call you a f.aggot. ANYBODY name calling Janet Jackson ‘JanTit’ is gonna get called a f.aggot because that is a f.aggot ass move. That troll needs to humble himself, bow down, and make itself useful by doing some manual labor.

      Janet: 2019 Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductee.
      JT: Somewhere lost in the woods w/a mega FLOPPED album #NuffSaid #Edit

      • The Royal Highness R.A.S.P.U.T.I.A. (Pronounced ‘Rah’ – ‘SPEW’ – ‘Cha’) December 28, 2018

        AMEN. You know I LOVE ME SOME JANET. I f.ucked my man last night to her Velvet Rope CD and by the time the CD ended hunny he busted 2 nuts. He be saving all his nut for me. LMAO

  6. DanYiel Iman December 27, 2018

    “Shocked” his caucasian fan base didn’t keep him afloat?!! He needed that urban base drop he didn’t have…walls out of his life like Janet Jackson did after he exposed her breast…🙅🏽‍♂️

  7. Period December 27, 2018

    Your source is a random twitter page “Pop Alarms” which is run by some fat gay? LOOOL That Grape Tank really is unreliable

  8. Audreyherbsburn December 27, 2018

    It happened because it was a very bad album… He tried too hard to be black and pander to Trump supporters. The singles were embarrassing and the timbaland collage are keeping him from evolving…

  9. Fast_Persuader December 27, 2018

    Look. When vultures and opportunists like JT decide to go “back to their roots” to express who they really are… after building their smoke-and-mirror career off the essence of pioneers and black music, all you’re going to be left with is bland vapid and faux-depth creations like MOTW.

  10. KD December 27, 2018

    Higher and higher, Montana, Flannel and Say Something are gems…everything else was/is crap…I’m sure there were worse albums released this year though.

    • FAF December 27, 2018

      I think it’s corny that he chose names like that flannel ?? TF so u have a campy album with surface level camp references . That’s why it got a 55

  11. i hate b&w bitchezzz both December 27, 2018

    the man in the woods has matured damn….his music has matured damn…..

  12. The Truth December 27, 2018

    YAAASSSS for JANET!!!!

  13. Love Solo December 27, 2018

    Never heard his latest effort. However, if it sucks he didn’t make it alone. How come no one ever brings up Janet Jackson’s team, who ever they were, at the time of the Super Bowl incident? She paid for a team for her hair and make up…..STYLIST, etc. Who was responsible for that particular outfit? Some1 assisted in putting it on, judged the fitting and all that. I never understood how a wardrobe malfunction was JT’s fault. I am just saying…

  14. J Bentley December 27, 2018

    This article is garbage. His album is great. By the way, Janet fans need to get over yourselves. Not JT’s fault she sucks.

    • Bey Bey Sting December 27, 2018

      It’s your mother who sucks.

  15. jam December 27, 2018

    I never really liked any of his music tbh. This has nothing to do with MeToo, BLM, Janet, or anything. I just don’t get into her. Sorry Justin

  16. Anne December 27, 2018

    His use of Prince’s likeness after his death at the Superbowl after dissing Prince while he was alive didn’t score him any extra points either. Not only did he not have the family’s blessing, he knew Prince would not have condoned it. That was the final straw for me.

  17. Angel Hamby December 27, 2018

    B*******. Justin Timberlake is and always will be the prince of pop. I have the album. 2 copies as a matter of fact. I know everyone I’ve talked to or heard his MOTW album with has liked what they heard. This Article is just that BS.

  18. Liam December 27, 2018

    Higher is my fave song I’m surprised it wasn’t a single 🤷🏿‍♂️

  19. Flopblacks December 28, 2018

    Why make this about that Flopnet? Even without that Super Bowl drama, her output was already on the way to the dogs. That album Damita Jo is a snoozefest. She deserves to flop, after Velvet Rope, her output has been s***. Those who don’t recognise this are blind fans. Go stream get terrible music instead, so she gets sales for her recent flop albums. Flopnet is the worst black entertainer: no voice, just whispering

    • Kenneth Cooper December 30, 2018

      Rock and Roll Hall of fame inducted

  20. Keith December 28, 2018

    Nothing to do with Ms. Jackson, the music just sucked this time. He needs new co-creators. Also, I just think his musical time might be up….

    • XYZ December 28, 2018

      Correct. As if now people would start to care about the Jackson fiasco. It’s more than ten years ago, let it pass.

      How might her impact be so strong to make him sell less, but isn’t strong enough to make her sell more? That doesn’t make any sense.

      His music was just not good, and he wasn’t welcomed as a man of the woods. People want gentleman Justin, not this weird man with a horrible sense of style wearing a flannel shirt. I was distracted by his style this time as much a I was by Katy Perry‘s Justin Bieber Memorial hair.

  21. Boytoy1814 December 28, 2018

    Ha Ha Hoo Hoo. Thought you get the money too. Greedy ma fukkka tried to have his cake & eat it too!!!

    Karma set dat a** on fiyaah 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 Stay in the woods & figure it out JT. #Scrub

    • Fancy BISH December 28, 2018

      Lmaoooo 🤣

  22. Cole Mary March 28, 2019

    If every time before JT opened his mouth to speak, he slapped himself and said ” what I’m about to say is stupid and I’m a dork who can’t act,” the world would be a much better place.

  23. Nickyy645 March 28, 2019

    Haha, JT trying to act was hilarious, he got slapped real hard, even Mila Kunis had to try to defend him against a Russian reporter wondering why the f*** he was trying to act, rightly so. Boy cannot act if his mom’s life depended on it. Why didn’t his wifey give him some basic acting lessons?
