Has the pop landscape become so barren that the return of a pop star with two albums to his name is headline news? Granted, the nearly 7-year-old "FutureSex/LoveSounds" has moments of real inspiration, but it's not like there's been a gaping musical void while Timberlake focused on genially goofy "SNL" spoofs and (surprisingly capable) acting work. It's a third album, not a second coming.
