Justin Timberlake Drops ‘Man of the Woods': Read the Best Fan Reactions
Justin Timberlake made it very clear in an Instagram video Wednesday (January 31) that his brand new Man of the Woods album is NOT a country LP. But...what is it? Let's take a quick glimpse at some Twitter reactions to see what *the people* think.
Today (February 2), Timberlake's fifth studio album, the follow-up to 2013's The 20/20 Experience, officially drops, and ushers in a brand new era for the former *NSYNC star — one that boasts track titles like "Flannel" and "Breeze off the Pond" and visuals like Timberlake dancing in a fringed jackets beside a roaring campfire. And while Man of the Woods initially seemed like it'd take a turn for the backroads bluegrass, tracks like the funky "Supplies" and a high-tech video for "Filthy" immediately proved it'd be more than a straight concept album,.
While some followers have proven to be in love with the singer's new sound (Rolling Stone says Man of the Woods "has pop beats but also comes with the moonshine-and-mason-jar glisten of country, blues and folk"), others have seen Timberlake's experiment as unfocused ("Justin Timberlake really on his redneck in the woods s---. I’m tryna see the vision but I don’t," one Twitter user wrote). Either way, Timberlake definitely hasn't played it safe, and the feedback reflected it.
Look back at some of the best, worst and most outlandish reactions to Justin Timberlake's new Man of the Woods album below.
