Ratings Game Music
ustin does a fantastic job of switching between downbeat and upbeat songs on Justice. Matter of fact, on certain songs, he combines the two sounds. Using this approach, he allowed us to be deeply in our feelings but also to dance our asses off. Great work!
Consequence of Sound
The pop singer returns with a perplexing mix of hollow, horny jams and social justice messaging.
wedding disco-friendly odes to the power of love.
It’s a great tune, with far more focus and energy than Bieber displayed on Changes. Musically, there’s plenty more to enjoy, including the shimmering EDM synths of Ghost and further blasts of glossy Eighties fun in the shape of Hold On and Somebody. With more co-writers than the Bible, no wonder there’s little to fault in the precision-tooled pop on offer.
Last year's 'Changes' saw the singer take a wrong turn, but here he's back at his best, tapping into his personal experiences – with powerful results.
Justin has finally granted himself the Justice he deserves with an album worthy of every bit of praise it gets. Justin has finally found himself again.
A work of subtle progression, its evangelical appeal is dimmed by the familiarity of those colossal singles. As fuel for the continuation of Justin Bieber’s mission, however, there’s much here to reaffirm your faith.
Justice mostly feels scattered in terms of styles, features and thematic decisions. The album opens a number of new avenues for Justin Bieber, but it’s more like a terminal rather than a destination for him.
‘Justice’ breaks no ground – certainly not politically, nor musically, though its poppier lean and talented team of collaborators will win back some listeners lost to ‘Changes’. Justin Bieber may be destined to drift back and forth from reluctant popstar to R&B wannabe: band-wagoning aside, ‘Justice’ finds him spooning down a big bland bowl of in-between.
