Timbaland (feat One Republic)


NME Logo
More dead-eyed perfection from Timothy Mosley, this time making ‘Apologise’ sound like his own, despite the fact it features US bore-rockers One Republic on vocals. The syncopated beats, double-jointed rhythm and the sense of walking into a vast, glass-fronted room remain. But the jaded feel that permeates the whole of ‘Shock Value’ is there too. “I’m holding on your rope/Got me 10 feet off the ground” bellows the singer. About as captivating as the Liberal Democrats search for a new leader.
