Before Timbaland ruled radio as the beat master for Missy Elliott and Aaliyah, he debuted his production skills on Ginuwine’s 1996 hit ”Pony.” On his return home on ”What’s So Different”, he eclipses Ginuwine’s tired wronged-man tale and makes his own sound the star here. The flamenco guitar pirouettes and stealthy bass line — sounding as if they came from a sci-fi funkopolis time machine — would make the perfect score to a ghetto BladeRunner. B+
