Right around the time Justin Timberlake released his lackluster* track, “Suit & Tie,” I was taking an early listen to Toro Y Moi‘s newest release, Anything in Return. After a few tracks, Dan asked me if I was listening to the new Justin Timberlake.
(*Sorry y’all, I wanted that Justin Timberlake track to be “Sexy/Back” amazing, and I listened to it probably 10 times before I finally declared it terrible.)
Dan’s question wasn’t unreasonable, given that many of the tracks on Anything in Return sound like they could be coming from the mythical album you wish Justin Timberlake had made. So don’t cry because “Suit & Tie” sucks; smile because “So Many Details” exists:
Lyrics to text your significant other next time you get in a fight: What happened to us / You sent my life / Into somewhere / I can’t describe / So many details
better late than never is an occasional series featuring tracks it took a little longer to love.
