Top critical review
I liked a few of the songs but it was a pretty boring experience
on February 5, 2010
20 Y.O. is one of the most boring Janet Jackson eras along with her first two albums and Damita Joe. Just look at the cover art and tell me it is not dull and the font is not unattractive. It is just a failure, if you ask me. The whole album is filled with silly dance tracks and nothing new or fun to hear about Janet's life or her personal feelings involving anything other than dancing or sex. I do like Enjoy though, which is a rather cute song. But still, if that is the highlight of the album, something weird is going on. While this is not really worth repeated listens to me, some of her biggest fans will want to buy this. Her voice also sounds better than usual though. Very honey like... I would like to hear some good tunes sung in this voice! So there is a positive for fans. But it still does not pick up a silly album. If silly is not a too exciting word to describe 20 Y.O.
