AllMusic Review by

The Lowdown is a two-CD audio documentary about Justin Timberlake. Read by Isabelle Woods and Shawn Jones, the story starts with his early days on Star Search and The Mickey Mouse Club and concludes with his work as a solo artist. A large part of the first CD is dedicated to specific details about Timberlake and his *NSYNC bandmates, Chris, JC, Joey, and Lance, and follows their rise to fame while interjecting audio clips from interviews. Learning about the pop star's career (as well as specifics, such as his love for basketball and Stevie Wonder) will be most interesting to hardcore fans, but this volume of the U.K. biography series is executed well enough that this could be an entertaining one-time listen for anyone interested in the inner workings of the pop industry.
