Timberlake’s “mirror” reflection is bright

Justin Timberlake has reappeared! After taking some time off from the music scene, Timberlake is returning with his new album, “The 20/20 Experience,” which will hit the shelves March 19. The album’s second single, “Mirrors,” came out this past week after Timberlake’s show-stopping sepia-toned performance of “Suit & Tie” at the Grammys.

As “Mirrors” begins, you start getting a flashback to JT’s previous “Future Sex/Love Sounds” album. He’s clearly kept his smooth pop/jazzy sound, but Timberlake has really grown with his lyrics. The song starts out as a major dedication to love with lyrics like “Aren’t you somethin’ to admire/Cause your shine is somethin’ like a mirror/And I can’t help but notice/You reflect in this heart of mine.”

Timberlake’s vocals always impress with smooth precision and that impeccable falsetto, always placed at the perfect moment. He continues to keep a great rhythm within the song that makes you want to dance, even if the track is too slow to bust a move. You can tell from “Mirrors” that Timberlake is trying to bring back some big band elements to his new album.

Near the end of the song, Timberlake starts chanting, “You are/You are the love of my life.” With some soft piano added in along with that perfected falsetto, he’s got every girl weak in the knees. Although the track stretches to a little over eight minutes, you won’t even realize it’s been that long. The message is clear: the new Justin Timberlake has arrived, along with his big band and black-and-white inspirations. He even says it himself in this song: “So now I say goodbye to the old me/it’s already gone.”
