This is a great cd, if you like all of these songs (of even if you just like one a WHOLE lot).

Then we get the video mix of 'When I Think Of You' which has a more festive sound than the original - it even lasts way longer than the one in the music video!

I love her Control album, but this is a beefed up version of all the singles she released from the Control album, except the Pleasure Principle.

This is a solid album - but not worth the money if you don't appreciate the relatively subtle touch-ups on these hits. I love this album, but I also know for sure that the casual listener could probably live without it. I will break it down for you anyhow:
There are two versions of 'Control'. One is the video mix (w/out the audience cheering), and the second one is a stripped down version of the original. There are two versions of 'Nasty'. The first is an extended mix of the original (with instrumental portions) while the second is probably what makes this album worth buying - it's the most remixed sounding song on here, and it's very long (and good). 'What Have You Done For Me Lately' is extended too, with instrumental portions where we're used to hearing Janet sing, "I never ask for more than I deserve..." and so forth. I like it.
On 'When I Think Of You', we get a percussion piece (Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis do well here) and that goes on for about two minutes. Then we get the video mix of 'When I Think Of You' which has a more festive sound than the original - it even lasts way longer than the one in the music video! We end the album with 'Let's Wait Awhile', and this version is more lush than the original as well - it is also the version used in her 1987 'black and white' music video.
In closing I will say this: most people will not hear (or really care for) the differences between these remixed versions and their original counterparts. If you're one of the few (like myself) that do, then you will be happy with this purchase. If you're one of the many that don't, your dollars will be better spent on 'Design Of A Decade' (Janet's 1995 Greatest Hits package) which gives you more songs for your money - and the Rhythm Nation tracks are remixed the same way that these ones are (they are the music video versions). It's a better deal overall. But who knows? Like Janet said..."You could learn to like this..."

To start, I must say that I am a Janet Jackson fan, and this is my favorite album of Janet's. I love her Control album, but this is a beefed up version of all the singles she released from the Control album, except the Pleasure Principle. The first song on the cd is my personal favorite. While listening to it, it is very hard to just sit and listen to it because you wanna get up and dance. It's the soundtrack to the Control video and it's much better than the album version. Next is a remix of Nasty and it is awesome too. It is extended and sounds better than the album version also. Then is another remix of the Nasty song that is a laid back jazzy version of it and it is much different than the original. It is really good. Then comes an extended version of What Have You Done For Me Lately that is similar to the album version, only longer. Then there is the percussion feature in When I Think of You that is only the beats and no vocals or anything else. Then is another great remix of When I Think of You that is really muscled up when compared to the album version. It is similar to the video version, just longer. Then is another remix of Conrol that is a capella and is good, depending on how much you like the song Control. Last is the video version of Let's Wait a While which is simply a prettier verison of the original. I think it's great. So, to conclude, this cd is a must for any Janet Jackson fan, and may not be as important to someone who doesn't really care for her music. I give this two thumbs up!

Well, I actually own the import Mexican Version of this set, that gets rid of two unnecessary tracks, and includes two superb mixes of "The Pleasure Principle", this Control The Remixes album it's something that every great artist of the late 80's early 90's should have, because that era was something else, amazing albums crowed with hit singles, not only one hit single and fillers. "Control The Video Mix" it's an amazing live track!, "When I Think Of You Dance Mix" gives the pop track more funkyness, so it's amazing too, "The Pleasure Principle Long Vocal Remix Shep Pettibone" it's the best track of the whole album so so classical, and danceable, you can just imagine the video listening to this track, "What's Have You Done For Me Lately Extended" this is a average mix of the late 80's that extended the funkyness two more minutes, great, "Nasty Cool Summer Mix Part Two" nasty nasty nasty great mix, "Let's Wait Awhile Remix" it's funny cos by those years was odd to make mixes of ballads, here it's not a dance mix, but it's a more piano oriented sound, less synthetic, "Nasty Cool Summer Mix Part One" more funkyness, "The Pleasure Principle Dub Edit" it's all about the beat!, this is an amazing dance remix album that any Janet fan should own, inside there are some photos of her videos but there a lil shaded, but you can tell in one Janet it's talking to the one an only Paula Abdul, great late 80's memorabilia.

I finally found this (after a month or two of Internet searching) for about 7 or 8 dollars less at the f.y.i. store in the mall close to where I live. I have to say, I don't regret buying it. Very rare to come across these days, and I'm glad that I found it.

Tracks:

1. Control (Video Mix) (6:02): "Live" version. Really just Janet actually singing her vocals instead of lip-synching the original, as is the norm in any music video by anyone.

2. Nasty (Extended) (6:07): Really nice extended mix of "Nasty". Love it!

3. Nasty (Cool Summer Mix, Pt. 1) (7:57): Certainly a difference! The original's "nastiness" is slightly smeared to give it a "summer" feel. Really nice, but why was Pt. 2 not included???

4. What Have U Done for Me Lately (6:57): Extended version. Cooooool.

5. When I Think of You (Extra Beats) (2:01): Unnecessary, but great for remix artists like myself.

6. WITOY (Extended Dance Mix) (6:24): Fantastic!!! True, there are a lot of breaks near the end, but I don't think the song's flow is disrupted.

7. Control (A Capella) (3:56): This is what I actually bought the album for. I like this version. It's less noisy than the original.

8. Let's Wait Awhile (Single Mix) (4:37): This was the version that was on "Design of a Decade" (my first taste of Janet). This is nice and slow, so that the album smoothly glides out.

I wish the Japan import was still available! It has an almost completely different set, with 9 tracks instead of 8 and remixes that weren't included here. Unfortunately, it has since been deleted. This is still good! Get it while it lasts!!!
