Timberlake's Sexy Return?

Justin Timeberlake's new single is already all over the web. I'm just trying to decide if it's as cool and breakthrough as his first solo album. My early guesstimate is that it is. This is a man with perfect timing, just look at when he got rid of Britney.

J-Tim definitely has still got Timberland on his side. And he has the talking points down:

"The best way I can describe that song is say David Bowie and David Byrne decided to do a cover of James Brown's Sex Machine," Timberlake told reporters.

I hear the James Brown part. Bowieness seems ellusive. There's quite possibly some Bryne in the consistent "Yeah!" sample.

Listen for yourself. Link from Stereogum, who hates the song.
