Clocking in at 8 minutes 15 seconds, this is not your typical pop song.  Justin Timberlake and Timbaland have crafted an epic love ballad that starts out sounding like 80s Arena Rock before going into the SexyBack Justin Timberlake we've come to expect, but then breaks down into a slow R&B vocal over a simple drum beat that develops into a crescendo of synthy strings before a Beatles-esque "I Am The Walrus" type of silly sing-along where he repeats "You are you are the the love of my life" for several minutes laying the groove for soft and sweet crooning.  This reminds us of unconventional Modern R&B like Frank Ocean and D'Angelo... with really slick, lush psychedelic production akin to Outkast.  Thumbs up.
