Timbaland hit a homerun with Shock Value. This is one of the best rap CDs I have heard in years. Shock Value is a must have addition to any colection.

Save yourself the extra money and just buy the singles you like since the rest of the "album" is not good... guess Tim gave JT all the good stuff.

Product Overview

Timbaland is already acknowledged as one of music's most inventive and distinctive creators. Yet the artist/producer's forthcoming album, just his second solo album, promises to shock the world. Timbaland Presents Shock Value (Mosley Music Group/Blackground/Interscope) is set for release April 3, 2007. The first single, "Give It To Me," featuring Justin Timberlake and Nelly Furtado.

"My mission is to blow up the boundaries and tear down the limits," says Timbaland. "I'm taking my music outside of the box. I'm not getting away from what I'm known for; I'm just going to a place where it's all about the music, not about the labels on the music. That's why I call it Shock Value--from the artists to the production, it will shock the system."

"Bounce" is the keyword on SHOCK VALUE. Even when Timbaland isn't directly instructing listeners (and guest artists) to do so, it's implicit in his frantic bass-lines and hypnotic drum arrangements. As usual, the super-producer's undeniable talents behind the boards make a variety of unlikely collaborations jive perfectly. Timbaland goes from futuristic hip-pop ("Oh Timbaland," "Release," "Bounce") and dance floor R&B ("Fantasy," "The Way I Are") to synth-pop ("Time"), emo ("One and Only"), and sensitive rock ballads ("Apologize").
Tim's boy Justin Timberlake shows up on three cuts, including one of the album's tightest ("Give It to Me"), alongside Nelly Furtado. "Kill Yourself," sees Tim throwing verbal shots at rival Scott Storch as only a producer on a battle track can ("I'm number one/You ain't number sh*t/When they need a hit/I'm who they come to get"). Missy Elliot, Fall Out Boy, She Wants Revenge, 50 Cent, Tony Yayo, the Hives, Keri Hilson, Magoo, Elton John, and Dr. Dre all show up out this shockingly eclectic guest list.
Artist Overview
It's not hyperbole to say that producer and MC Timbaland changed the face of hip-hop and R&B in the late 1990s and early 2000s. The Virginia native's revolutionary work with singer/rapper Missy Elliott was unlike anything previously heard in contemporary black music at the time, and it made Timbaland one of the most sought-after producers in the game. He subsequently brought his frenetic avalanche of stuttering beats and synth samples to bear on the music of, among others, Jay-Z, Nelly Furtado, and Justin Timberlake. In addition to his work as one half of the rap duo Timbaland & Magoo, Timbaland released his first proper solo album, SHOCK VALUE, in 2007.

Artist Bio
TimbalandSuper-producer Timbaland has stamped his indelible imprint on the music scene since the mid-1990s. His production has helped create career-defining hits for artists such as Jodeci, Aaliyah, Ginuwine, Missy Elliott, Destiny?s Child, Ludacris, Snoop Dogg and Jay-Z, among many others. Respected beyond the genres of urban and hip hop music, Timbaland, whose musical influences cross cultural lines, has also been sought by diverse superstars whose music similarly knows no boundaries, from pop star Justin Timberlake to avant-singer Bjork. Released April 3, 2007 is his second solo album, Timbaland Presents Shock Value (Blackground/Interscope/Mosley Music Group). That disc follows his producing of the majority of the tracks, including the single ?SexyBack,? on Timberlake?s #1 charting, multiplatinum FutureSex/LoveSounds, which followed their work together on Timberlake?s previous smash, Justified.Born Timothy Z. Mosley in Norfolk, Virginia on March 10, 1972, Timbaland, so named by Jodeci member Devante Swing after the Timberland boot, has had many reincarnations--from disc jockey DJ Timmy Tim to half of the hip hop group Timbaland & Magoo; from membership in Devante Swing?s Swing Mob crew known as Da Bassment to S.B.I. (Surrounded By Idiots), a production ensemble including Pharrell Williams, to being CEO of his own label, Mosley Music Group.
