Editorial Reviews

Why is Janet Jackson's Janet the best Michael Jackson album since Thriller and the best Madonna album since..., well, since ever? Perhaps it's because Michael's kid sister is the only one of these three aerobic video stars with enough smarts to realize that sex, hooks, and beats are all that matter in this field of lightweight dance pop. Or perhaps it's because the sexuality Janet radiates through her sweet melodies and hip-tugging grooves is so much more credible than Michael's arrested prepubescence or Madonna's nothing-personal-just-business comeons. After her embarrassing posture as a sociocultural analyst on 1989's Rhythm Nation 1814, Janet has returned to her strength--using her odd mix of girlishness and maturity to make dance numbers about personal relationships ring exceptionally true. Even so, the 75-minute, 27-track Janet doesn't really work as an album; there's too much filler and the between-song transitions quickly grow tiresome. The album is full of killer singles, though, starting with such proven cuts as the extremely slinky "That's the Way Love Goes" and rock-guitar-driven "If," and featuring such future hits as the Prince-like "This Time," the Motown-like "Because of Love," the breathy ballad "Where Are You Now" and the inspired Stax cover, "What'll I Do. --Geoffrey Himes

5.0 out of 5 stars Growth, Maturity, and Evolution July 31, 2002
Format:Audio CD
"Janet" heralds a new Miss Jackson who's come a long way from her cutesy days as Penny on "Good Times." Gone are the robotic dance beats of her last two records. Say farewell to those all-black costumes she constantly wore in her videos. This album shows Janet at her most relaxed, and it features her most mature work at the time. Janet once crooned, "Let's Wait Awhile," but it now seems that she is willing to explore her sexuality, as evidenced in the hot singles "That's the Way Love Goes" and "You Want This." Elsewhere, she dabbles with house ("Throb"), non-drippy ballads ("Again," which is one of her best singles ever), rock ("What I'll Do"), and straightforward pop (the hidden track "Whoops Now"). For all that's good, I have to complain about the handful of unnecessary interludes that pop up in between songs. If they were removed, "janet" would have been a near-flawless record. But as it is, it's still a winning release that shows growth and depth from the most exciting and musically consistent member of the Jackson family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Janet aims to please October 11, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Janet has made a winner here. Unlike her previous cd's, Janet drastically changed her image, for the best. The songs still have the heavy beats that we've expected from her. Each of the songs are awesome, but some of the "weaker songs" could have been left out, and been replaced by those wonderful b-sides of the album "One More Chance", "And on And On" and "70's Love Groove"
Each song is different, there is a different style for each song. "If" is the standout of the album because there is no song like it, and it happens to be my favorite too. "Where Are You Now" is an awesome ballad, like One more Chance (which is available on the If single), Where are you now should of been a single, it is one of Janet's best songs and her voice really shines on it.
Janet has done it again, I highly reccomend this cd, all the songs are awesome.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Change of Pace October 17, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album marked the end of "Miss Jackson" and the debut of "Dominatrix Jackson". She mostly forgoes her funky dance beats, social commentary and personal statements of past albums. Instead stressing R&B, sensuality and straight on dance grooves. It's quite a startling change but she mostly pulls it off. "That's The Way Love Goes", "You Want This", "If", "Because of Love" and "Any Time, Any Place" are the best of the bunch with much of the rest being either average or filler ("Funky Big Band" is neither funky nor interesting to listen to). Still the entire album comes together and presents the most honestly sensual Janet Jackson we've yet seen. The crass and almost pornographic Janet Jackson of late is barely noticalbe on this album. The closest she gets is the sexually charged "If." Of particular note, tracks 20 through the end of the disc make for great music for romantic get togethers.

Although unexpected after her funkier first two albums, "Janet." is a nice change of pace and one of her strongest sets.

4.0 out of 5 stars Oldie but a Goodie August 20, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I recently pulled this CD out for another listen, and almost ten years later from when i first heard it i was still impressed. This is definitely Janet Jackson's best work to date. These songs don't date, which is surprising for pop music, and there is such a wide range of styles here that can cater to many people's tastes. Janet's tracks are funky and upbeat, prompting you do get up and dance or at least bop around. "Thats the way love goes" will probably be most familiar, but "If", "What'll I do", "Funky Big Band" and "Because of Love" are also noteworthy. There is also the ballads "Again" and "Where are you now" which are sweet singalongs that would please any pop lover. This may be pop, but its pop done very well. It sets the bar, and basically makes all the recent pop/R&B divas look pale in comparison.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW, WHAT AN ALBUM!!! March 26, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
It's a shame this wasn't released on vinyl-it would have sounded awesome! This, I think, is a vinyl-album. It has the sound for it.
Anyway, this is an incredible album: 75+ minutes, 27 tracks (about half of which are inturludes), very eclectic in its musical styles, and the moods it can set.
This record kicks-off with "That's The Way Love Goes," (trk. 2) a very mellow, smooth, rhythmic song. It sets a great opening. Then "You Want This" (trk. 4) is where the tempo picks up. In this song, Janet sings against a cliché that has existed strongly in media for ages: that the women should give herself up for sex. Janet believes the man should "work it." 'Not anyone I'll just let in my heart/you have to be hungry for me/girls may have been easy/boy, you have to please/what makes me thing that I can say this to you/I know how bad you want me/if you want my future/then you better work it, boy/love won't come easy-no/I know you want this.' A very good statement! And it's true. "If" (trk. 6) is a fast, hard-rock song with an excellent beat! "This Time" (trk. 8) features the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra (YEAH, MINNESOTA!!!) and Opera-diva Kathleen Battle. When Janet has finished her part, everything just becomes silent, with only the strings humming low in the background....BOOM-the orchestra explodes beautifully and Kathleen Battle unleashes her amazing vocals, giving the song a pleasant, soothing, eerie sound. Then everything come together to a grand finale.
All is silent.
Then, "Throb" (trk. 10) opens with Janet moaning in sexual ecstasy, the bass-drum sets a beat, Janet says "Okay, here we go..." and the drums pound out a fast, damn fine, dance rhythm.
