Listened to Until Yesterday repeatedly today at work. You know what? Love it. LOVE IT. Love. IT. The music, his voice...everything. Love it. Okay, the lyrics are...interesting, but come on. THIS TUNE KICKS ASS. Whether or not it's radio-friendly and will grab the ear of the masses has yet to be seen.

withdiamonds mentioned a Beatlesque sound to the song. I heard a 60s influence too, but I was thinking of The Turtles. The background "la las las" remind me of a specific song and I can hear it in my head, but I can't think of the name of the tune! Aiiii! It's right on the tip of my brain but it won't come out, dammit.

Gakked with much excitement from glendaglamazon:

Thanks to pacific_gravity for the heads-up! Until Yesterday is UP!!!. It's got an annoying AOL First Listen audio stamp in it, but! THE WHOLE SONG!

Go HERE! It's official. I love it. ::swoons:: I just checked my cable provider's AOL On Demand channel and didn't see it listed - at least not yet. I'll check again tomorrow. I was able to listen to the clip twice before it crashed IE. The same thing happened the other night with the Q100 clip I downloaded. I had it on endless repeat and after a few listens, my IE crashed. Oddness.

JC! Massive JC luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurve!

SKA-WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! Honestly, is there anything better out there than JC in his element, which used here means SINGING? I want him to have solo success so, so, much. The only thing that could improve this clip would be trimming it so it looped seamlessly, which it almost-but-not-quite does in its current incarnation. Also, at one point I do believe you can hear JC (live in the studio) laugh or say "hunh" or something, very, very quickly. It's at 00:46. Okay, I listened again, and it sounds like "all right" possibly even "aight." ;-) JaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayCeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Only this guy, folks.

Oh, JC. I still love you, you sexy bastard. ::cries::

Ah, and if you're like me and you're saying frantically, "Clip? What? I NEED THIS NOW, FOX! HOOK A SISTER UP!", this is where I do said hookage. From the Board of Doom, a couple of threads where the link can be found:

Despite Mr. Timberlake's exhortations to the contrary, I'm pretty sure sexy hasn't gone anywhere from which it needs to return. That said, he croons so stylishly about it that I almost bought his claim. Bringing sexy back, indeed. Nice try, sweetie!

If you haven't guessed by now, I heard SexyBack for the first time today. I'd read various things about the tune but I was still surprised. It's very different, and I *really* liked it. The proof is that I stopped the radio scan when I heard it, and I had no idea what the song was or who was singing. After I realized what it was, I actively tried to hear "Justin" while I listened; if I hadn't heard the hook, I'd don't think I'd have guessed it was him. He sounded good through the distortion, I think it works with his voice, not against it. I think he knocked this one out of the park!

You know, when I first read that JC's album had been pushed back I honestly wasn't surprised. Saddened and disappointed to be sure, but not surprised. I just...don't have the energy to figure that boy out. Wait - that's not quite true, because I do have a few theories that I won't share (nothing none of you haven't already thought of, I'm sure). I wonder if we're looking at another February release? Oh, JC. You troubled, troubled soul, you. ::pets JC, sighs::

On a happier note, 4/5ths of NSync at JC's b-day party! That made me smile. :-) I really miss those guys.
