On her eighth studio album, Damita Jo--the title lifted from her middle name--Janet Jackson teams up with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis once again on what is perhaps the most feverish album in her two decade long career. Whether she's taking the listener on a torrid excursion in the four song island suite, or boasting of her sexual prowess on "Sexhibition's" word games lyrics, where she tells fans "relax, it's just sex," the singer tries hard--maybe too hard--to establish herself as a sexual avatar with portfolio. But in "Strawberry Bounce," she seems more like a pole dancer in stilettos than a social revolutionary, as she catalogs the way she plans to make her inamorato lose control, and she just sounds silly on "Moist," which extols the female orgasm. Instead, the best moments on the album are when Jackson comes off as saucy and winsome instead of a heavy breather, like on the down-tempo "Thinkin' Bout My Ex," her collaboration with Babyface, which seems lifted right out of her autobiography, and on the athletic Prince clone "Just A Little While." The title track is Jackson's own version of J-Lo's "Jenny On the Block," and she sounds just as insincere as Lopez when she tried to convince us that she was just an ordinary neighborhood diva. Instead, Janet’s much more persuasive when she joins up with hip-hop savant Kanye West on "My Baby," pairing her breathy, little girl vocals to his sharp, focused rap. Then and only then does Damita Jo sound like love can actually trump sex. --Jaan Uhelszki

29 of 30 people found the following review helpful By Janet Jolene~ on July 30, 2005
Format: Audio CD
I absolutely LOVE every song on this album! I give this album a 10! And it's not just cuz Janet and I share the same first name, Lol, but because Janet Jackson surely put out another good album yet again! Big WOOT for her! All the songs have a special meaning to me!

1. Looking For Love - Interlude:~

I like this track cuz it is so true... we're all so different, and there are so many contradictions between us... but in the end all of us are looking for the same thing, and that makes us all so similar no matter how different we are... because in the end, we're all looking for Love.

2. Damita Jo:~ (SCORE 9)

I like this song. I like the beat and its kinda hip-hop like. The song basically talks bout who she is, and asking everyone... do you like me just for what you see? Do you really think I'm that person you see on TV?

3. Sexhibition:~ (SCORE 10)

I LOVE this song. Prolly like my third favorite on this album. It just makes me wanna get up and dance Lol. It's got like a danceable rock/pop beat to it... What's this song about? ummmm sex. Lol

4. Strawberry Bounce:~ (SCORE 7)

I like this song, but I kinda scroll past this track when I hear this album unless I really wanna hear it. It's has an addictive hook and all, but it is not one of my favorites on this album.

5. My Baby (featuring Kanye West):~ (SCORE 8)

I like this song, but just like Strawberry Bounce, I'm never really in the mood to hear it all the time. I read many reviews and everyone seems to LOVE it, and I do too, but it is not one of my favorites for some reason. I like what it says though... it's about her love for her babay Lol.

Format: Audio CD
Janet Jackson is letting it all hang out on her fabulously down-and-dirty "Damita Jo." On this CD, Jackson's raunchy lyrics, which appear on a number of these songs, leave almost nothing to the imagination, exploring sexual themes that pick up where her last three albums left off. If the parental advisory sticker isn't a sufficient warning, then take a cursory look at the tracklisting: titles like "Warmth," "Moist," "Sexhibition," and "Strawberry Bounce." But there's so much more to "Damita Jo" than its eye-opening lyrics. While she faithfully reunites with producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, she also branches out and works with other hitmakers like Kayne West, Babyface, and Dallas Austin. The result is her most diverse-sounding album to date. The flavor is still r&b, but with some new welcome kicks. Janet sets a romantic tone in the sweet "Spending Time With You," hooks up with Kayne West on the slammin' "My Baby," and collaborates with Babyface on "Thinking of My Ex," a killer ballad that should make current beau Jermaine Dupri nervous. Clubheads and DJs will salivate over the disco glitter of "Slolove," and "R&B Junkie" outright steals the hook off Evelyn Champagne King's "I'm in Love" and runs with it. As with Janet's last few discs, "Damita Jo" has its share of interludes, and their abundance threatens the flow and overall quality of the disc. One day, Janet will hopefully be confident enough to do away with the interludes and let the music speak for itself. And the weak "Just a Little While" was a poor choice for a debut single. That aside, "Damita Jo" stands tall on its merits and looks poised to be a solid hit during the spring and summer.

I do not know what happened to the nearly 1000 other reviews, but here is my take on the album. Damita Jo is a really good album. Janet's albums always reflect her mood -- Control was a story of rebellion and growing up; Rhythm Nation was about politics and edgy dance tracks; Janet was about sensuality; Velvet Rope was about dealing with heartache and suffering; and All for You was about rebounding from this pain. Damita Jo's theme is one of love, sexuality, and serenity. There are several standout tracks on the album. My favorites are:
R & B Junkie -- VERY HOT, DANCY, OLD SKOOL TUNE
Slolove -- disco flavor, definite summer tune
All Nite/Don't Stop -- a club tune
Spending Time With You -- very romantic
Island Life -- peaceful, unwinding by the beach
I Want You -- retro r and b tune, excellent performance
Warmth -- Janet's most daring sex song ever. If you cannot stomach sexuality -- simply skip it, or buy the edited version.
Like YOu Don't Love Me -- an intense r/b song, with a funny, yet relevant, message (how to keep the "spark" in a relationship)
Thinking Bout My Ex -- not a standout, but a nicely delivered ballad
Damita JO -- a very catchy "personal" story - an introduction to Janet's alter ego, has words like "do you want me just for what you see? do you think that i'm the person you watch on tv?"
My Baby is a cute tribute to Janet's current partner, though I found the inclusion of "hot rapper of the moment" Kanye West a bit uncecessary (geared toward sales?)
I do not really care for most of the other "songs" -- many of which are really chatty interludes. Strawberry Bounce is targeting a teenage audience; the song lacks substance. Sexploration is growing on me, but it, like Straw. Bounce, is a teenybopper song.
