Between his new album and his Super Bowl halftime show, it's impossible to ignore Justin Timberlake these days, so naturally we put on our warmest flannel and visited the Man of the Woods this week on the Must-Hear Music podcast. The crew (Joe Lynch, Jason Lipshutz and Lyndsey Havens) shares feelings on the album and wonders if critics – many of whom have been savage in their reviews – are giving it a fair shake.

We also talk about Rhye, the breathy alt R&B project that we're happy to welcome back into our lives with new album Blood, as well as James Blake, who returns to his more experimental roots with "If the Car Beside You Moves Ahead." Plus: Troye Sivan's "My My My," my favorite track of 2018 so far, Rae Sremmurd's "T'd Up," which continues their winning streak, and Moss Kena's "Square One," a fascinating taste of an artist we don't know much about (yet).
