Timbaland Presents : Shock Value

The most eagerly awaited album of 2007.

Whatever Timbaland touches seems to turn to gold. He has produced music for the likes of Destiny's Child, Ludacris, Justin Timberlake, Aaliyah, Nelly Furtado, The Pussycat Dolls, Jay-Z and Nas just to name a few. The clubs have been banging his beats for years and now he's just rolled out a whole album full of em!

Timbaland Presents : Shock Value just blew me off the hook. The opening track 'Oh Timbaland' sets the groove for what to expect. Almost like a self-introduction to him and the album. Sheer brilliance. I can see 'Give it to me' featuring Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake being a song that'll be over played at the clubs. It's catchy and makes u want to get up and dance! The same can be said for 'Release', another one featuring JT.

It's a great mix of music. The collaborations include 50 Cent, Dr. Dre, Magoo, Nicole Scherzinger to name a few. A few i would've never expected were Elton John, the Hives and Fall Out Boy! Watch out for 'Come and get me', 'Kill yourself', 'Scream', 'Bombay', 'One and only' just to name a few.

It's been a long time since i've liked every single song on an album. This is it. 10/10.
