Timberlake's Back

This piece on Justin Timberlake is harmless, but vague. What exactly does his second album "FutureSex/LoveSounds" need to prove that his first album "Justified" failed to prove? That album was a huge hit whose popularity attests to its appeal to more than just the kids, the production represented career peaks for both the Neptunes and especially Timbaland, and J.T.'s subsequent tour showed him the near-equal of Prince, or at least D'Angelo. The fact that any fluff profile would even ask whether Timberlake can prove his staying power four years after its subject's massive breakout success answers its own pointless question.
