We gave it a B

On ”Justified,” this Neptunes-produced track, Like I Love You (Basement Jaxx Mixes) couldn’t be simpler: an acoustic guitar, live-sounding drums, some swooshing synth noises. Remixed here by British electronic-music whizzes Basement Jaxx, it’s sped up and filled out with a hard drive’s worth of beats and effects. Too bad it’s not as inventive as the duo’s work on its own albums, although the ”acid dub” B side — which nixes Timberlake almost entirely — comes close.
