The wait is over — it's time to get Justified. 'NSYNC golden boy Justin Timberlake releases his solo album Tuesday, which finds the dirty pop star trading in his bubble-gum beats for more of a hip-hop "flava" with the help of the Neptunes and Timbaland.
Icelandic nymph Björk serves up two releases this week, a greatest hits album and a six-disc box set, Family Tree.
The Wallflowers' fourth album, Red Letter Days, hits shelves alongside the Murder Inc. all-star compilation Irv Gotti Presents the Remixes.
U2 - The Best of 1990-2000 includes the group's old favorites like "One" and "Mysterious Ways" and newer material that's out of the titular time range, like "Electrical Storm" and "The Hands That Built America."
Dave Matthews Band's Live at Folsom Field - Boulder, Colorado was recorded in July 2001, and the two-and-a-half-hour show makes up the group's sixth live album.
And finally, surely everyone remembers Ray Munns of MTV's third Wanna Be a VJ contest. Well, like Jesse and the 8th Street Kidz before him, he has his own album called A DJ's Night Out. Somewhere, Thalia is kicking herself.
