Timberlake got absolutely robbed. FutureSex/LoveSounds is one of the most impactful pop records of all time and its influence can still be heard today in modern pop and R&B music.February 28, 2021 at 5:15 am #1204066140
Justin Timberlake + 2nd Album of the Year nomination = BARF!
Honey; Mary J. Blige, The Breakthrough should’ve won, but was snubbed. Christina Aguilera, Back to Basics should’ve also been nominated. 🙁
From these nominees, The Chicks were deserving.
1. The Chicks
2. Gnarls Barkley
3. Red Hot Chili Peppers
4. John Mayer (BARF!)
5. Justin Timberlake (BARF!)February 28, 2021 at 5:59 am #1204066173
Out of those albums Justin Timberlake’s had the biggest impact. I wouldn’t have minded Gnarls Barkley or John Mayor either. I feel like Mary J Blidge got snubbed for consideration.February 28, 2021 at 6:57 am #1204066247
St. Elsewhere B+
Taking the Long Way B
Stadium Arcadium B-
I like the Chicks as much as the next sane person, but they’ve not recorded enough good songs to justify that love until Gaslighter. Timberlake’s makes up for what it lacked in sincerity with experimentality and some of the finest pop songs of that decade. Major snub of the year is Dylan’s Modern Times, and I would definitely take B’Day and Oral Fixations Vol. 2 over any of the non-Timberlake nominees.February 28, 2021 at 7:14 am #1204066287This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.February 28, 2021 at 7:19 am #1204066297
Get real! FutureSex/LoveSounds did NOT produce “some of the finest pop songs of that decade.” It was a blatant rip-off of many black artists. Thank goodness that crap lost.

2006 was a shitty year.
I’d nominate Tool’s “10,000 days”.February 28, 2021 at 9:05 am #1204066480
Future Sex/Love Sounds is Timberfake’s best album. But I’m not mad over The Chicks sweep 🙃
MJB’s The Breakthrough was snubbed. 😒

Lol I’m still salty that Gwen Stefani went home empty handed . Pop Album should’ve been hersFebruary 28, 2021 at 12:06 pm #1204067485
Honey, Love.Angel.Music.Baby is way better than Breakaway. I’m fine with Kelly Clarkson winning Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. However, Best Pop Vocal Album should’ve definitely gone to Gwen Stefani.February 28, 2021 at 12:17 pm #1204067503

Yes. The Pop Field should’ve spread the wealth to both Kelly & Gwen. “Since U Been Gone” was a better vocal performance and song. But L.A.M.B. was a much more experimental & ambitious album.

This should’ve definitely gone to JT. Easily his best album and one of the finest pop records of the century. Gnarls Barkley’s album was also great and a worthy runner-up here. The Chicks’ album was good, but it’s no Wide Open Spaces. I never really liked John Mayer’s music and as big of an RHCP fan as I am, Stadium Arcadium was an utter disappointment.February 28, 2021 at 8:05 pm #1204070763
Yes, Justin Timberlake should have won that. The album is a pop masterpiece and it’s sad that the Timbaland pop era was never acknowledged by the Grammys.March 1, 2021 at 1:27 am #1204072583
2008, Album of the year
Herbie Hancock – River: The Jone Letters (WINNER)
