Timbaland's new album pushes 'Shock Value'
“The climate for music is so bad right now, it will depend on whether pop radio picks up on it and whether he is seen as a pop star”
Timbaland is used to causing double takes with his music. Now he's hoping to make a few jaws drop, as well. via The Clarion-Ledger

America gave birth to so much great music,
Gospel, jazz, blues, soul, rock, rap but today popular music is in freefall
and Timbaland is the ultimate symbol of this trend.
Timbaland:Music for marketing.
Timbaland is well liked by the "critics" (pay by the big corporations) because they can say "Now I understand black music! That's good black music."
What they like in Timbaland "music" it's the Techno/Pop/synth/Gay sound played by a black man.
His "music" is souless, cold, mechanical and said nothing.Its the perfect beat for the fascist Bush years.
Perfect for the white pop artists who got nothing to say but pretend to play black music.
Perfect for black artist who want to reach the white teens/gay buyers.
For 10 years it's the same beat with a new sound stolen somewhere (Arabic, Indus or Finnish music).
Boring after 8 measures, and feed by force via all the clear channel/MTV.
The Financial power decided that "Timbo" was the perfect good big black (and propably gay) boy to represent their computerized/aseptized "music".
What's so "fantastic" about him? His goofy face??
He's changed the sound of music, sure, but for the worst.

i love his new album. i'm not white, i'm not gay.
if the music is good....i buy it. i also like the cure, jesus and mary chain, new order, depeche mode, pet shop boys, AND i listen to Indian music, AND i listen to buddha bar, AND i like some pop music....it all depends on what suits me.
the industry is out there to make money....if you buy into their baloney, then you're sunk.....just listen to what you like....who cares about timbaland and his motives for making the album....
in the end, he wants to make money, and we want to hear good music.
opinions may differ, but that's another story.
