Do you know what today is?

It's Shock Value day, did everyone go out like good fans and buy a copy? I did and have been listening to it non stop. I have to say it's a grower. At first I was like "naa I ain't feelin' it" but now as the hours go by, I'm starting to like it.

How about for everyone else, do you like it? I know there was a leak awhile ago but has your opinion about it changed at all? I'm really diggin' "Bombay" and "Miscommunication" I'm really happy to see Hannon's name on a co-production as well but we'll go into the liner notes on another post.

Hope ya'll copped the album to give our man Timbo support. The Chronicles team (myself included) will be giving their reviews shortly so stay tuned. In the meantime look for a small change tomorrow here on The Chronicles....

Happy Shock Value Day! :D

Timbaland announces his 2nd single

I won't ruin it for ya'll, I'll just let you watch:

2nd single announcement

So how do ya'll feel about the news?

Allhiphop talks with Timbo

" The music took a big leap over the last two years. What prompted this change on your part?

Timbaland: My sound is always changing, so I can’t pinpoint myself. Once I think someone’s got it, I’ll change it up and that happens all the time. I don’t try to do that; it just comes natural to me. Sometimes I don’t like my sound, it’s just nagging to me, sometimes I’m just like "This is trash," but that’s just me being a hard critic."

Props to Claire for the info!

Timstrumental of the Week

OK, last week I dropped Tim & Mag's official first single, Czar went and threw up HERE WE COME, the 1st single off TIM'S BIO, so in continuing that theme here goes the 1st 'street' single off INDECENT PROPOSAL. DROP mighta been the first video, but about a year before the cd dropped, this was pegged as the jumpoff, promo and vinyl were shipped....I cannot believe this song aint take off!

ROLL OUT featured Petey Pablo (before RAISE UP stardom) and Sebastian. Tim - on his verse made his voice sound the way it did way back when on that Jodeci track from '93, and Magoo? He keeps it Magoo.

This is a classic to me, I like how it sounded different too. Everynow and then Tim will be doin a 'signature' sound (like MY LOVE/ICE BOX/ANONYMOUS/SEXYBACK/WAY I ARE), and just when you expectin something else along those lines, BAM!...comes that left hook right outta nowhere. ROLL OUT was just that typa track.

Timbo talks more with Seacrest

Here's a short interview Tim did with Ryan Seacrest. He talks about his album and more Brittany Spears ambitions. A come back album? All Timbo? Hmmmm


Bjork "Earth Intruders" Snippet and News

Here is what has reported to be Bjork's first single off her new album Volta, "Earth Intruders" produced by Timbaland. What do ya'll think? Personally, I can't make a judgement call off of 10 seconds of a track but it's good to at least know what Tim & Bjork have been cookin' up.

The track will be released as a digitally downloadable single on April 9th according to her website and if you haven't seen it yet here is the cover art for Volta.

Definitely looking forward to this. Thanks to Hypnotic for the snippet.


T.I. and Slim Thug talk Timbaland

Here are a couple of interviews with T.I. and Slim Thug talking a little bit about working with Timbaland:

T.I. Full Interview

".....Other characters slated to guest on the disc include Wyclef Jean, Lil Wayne, Eminem, Ciara, Akon, Tweet, and R. Kelly — not to mention Timbaland and Justin Timberlake, T.I.'s partners on the Grammy-winning smash "My Love."

Full Article

"....Last week, Slim — on the phone from Dallas, where he was in the studio with another VA super-producer, Timbaland — revealed that he was never signed to Star Trak in the first place."

Great read on that Slim Thug article. I always thought he was on Star Trek. Big thanks to Barrie from Entertainment Weekly and my man Roderick for the articles!

NY Times Review of Shock Value

Definitely a solid review:

"Even when he doesn’t have the microphone, Timbaland often overshadows whoever does. He’s not one of those musical therapists who make singers sound more like themselves. On the contrary, he prides himself on challenging his clients. They have to find a way to work around his weird beats. (Many of his productions don’t really make sense until you hear them a few times; he loves songs that sound wrong at first.) His music isn’t predictable, but it’s definitely recognizable. In that sense he’s among the most assertive pop producers of all time."
