To be sure, he is light years ahead of others and manipulates sounds with a pimp-hand that is unmatched. Timba managed the unthinkable by getting the ever-illusive Dr. Dre on a track (“Bounce”), and then there's the track with [pause for it] Sir Elton John (“2 Man Show”).
But features aside (enough Justin already – seriously) Timbaland is most definitely NOT an MC. In the age of ghostwriters, he should have his pick.
Lastly, the album doesn't do justice in showing his incredible versatility as a beatsmith – despite the presence of rock acts. It's safe and rides the wave of JT's FutureSex/LoveSounds too much.
Highlights: “Come & Get Me” and “Miscommunication.” Honorable mention: Nina Simone sample in “Oh Timbaland.”
