I'm always excited to see a new Janet release. "Icon" is an abbreviated collection of Janet's "Number Ones". It starts with "What Have You Done For Me Lately" and ends with "Nothing" (the beautiful ballad and theme song from Why Did I Get Married Too).

So many #1 hits included here! And lots of uptempo jams that Janet Jackson is known for.

It's nice to have these hits on a one CD collection - and the price is certainly right! This should tide us over until we get a new studio album from Janet, hopefully in 2013!! Pick this one up...

Seems every record label has come up with their own series of "best ofs" through the years. Essential...Gold...Icon, etc. Gotta sell some cd's! Anyway, this is the third Cranberries collection I'm aware of, and the least of the three. The official collection "Stars" is a great 20 track disc with a good booklet. There's the 2-disc Gold collection for those that need about half the Cranberries output in one nice package. This is kinda a budget hits disc. Only 12 songs, only the biggest hits. Maybe that's all a few people want, but I doubt it. I find some of their lesser known hits I like even more. The songs here are 4 star, but the collection 2 star. By the way, their original albums are pennies used at this point.

There isn't much to say other than Janet always does it BIG!! I already own Number Ones and I purchased this CD just so I can have "Nothing" on disc. Janet has a crazy collection of #1 hits and this is a good selection. Some of her best work! Keep em coming Ms. Jackson! You've got die-hard fans waiting for more!! :)

As someone who collects all Janet's albums and singles, obviously I was going to buy "Number Ones" just to get the new recording Make Me, which was, sadly, not released as a CD single with the remixes included. But then I stumbled upon this single disc compilation that has all the hits I already have PLUS Make Me PLUS a song that was NOT on the Number Ones CD, Nothing, a track from a Tyler Perry movie. So rather than having to buy number ones and the Perry soundtrack, I got the two songs I needed on this one inexpensive single disc compilation.

This is a pretty good mix of old and newer songs for a very affordable price point! This collection totally brings back memories of my childhood. I can remember jamming to "What Have You Done For Me Lately" back in 1986 in the schoolyard. "Miss You Much" was ALL over the radio back in '89 - I tried so hard to learn the chair routine from her video! Doesn't everyone feel like going on an "Escapade" after a long work week? I know I do.

"That's The Way Love Goes" brought out Janet's sexy, loving side... 1993 was a HUGE year for Janet with her release (janet.) and showed the public the highs and lows of love. I can still remember to this day seeing her perform "That's The Way Love Goes" on the MTV VMAs. It was the Janet we all knew and loved, but UNLEASHED! Her hair was crazy!

The very first time I heard "Together Again", I knew it was going to be a #1 hit. Such a great song to celebrate life. The summer of 2000 - "Doesn't Really Matter" was on the radio, taken from The Nutty Professor 2 soundtrack. Yet again, she delivered another stunning performance of this track at the MTV VMAs. The song "Make Me" just makes you want to get up and grove. I hope some of her upcoming music sounds like this!

To end off the collection, we have "Nothing," taken from Tyler Perry's "Why Did I Get Married Too" soundtrack. Written for the movie, the lyrics summarize the relationship issues covered in the film. It also gives us hope that love will conquer all.
Great playlist of Janet's hits. Great Price.

Janet has achieved more number one songs than can fit on a single CD, so I don't know how they managed to choose the contents of Icon, but it's a great selection of some of my favorite Janet songs!
From the funky beats of 'What Have You Done For Me Lately' (brings me back to being blown away by Janet on the 1987 Grammys - Gimme A Beat!!!) & 'Nasty', through to Janet's recent hits 'Make Me' and 'Nothing it's a great journey through Janet's amazing artistry, and brings back so many great memories.
'Nothing' is fast becoming one of my favorite songs and it was only available on iTunes prior to this so it's great to have it on the album along with 'Make Me'.
For fans it has a great selection of some of your favorite Janet songs including 'Make Me' and 'Nothing' together, and for the casual listener it has many Janet songs you will fondly remember from over the years.
Icon is great music for home, at the office, for dancing of course... and I plan to make Icon a Christmas gift for a few friends along with Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married Too? (Widescreen Edition)
Highly recommended!

As other reviewers have mentioned, this is an condensed collection of Janet's "Number Ones" 2-CD compilation with the addition of her 2010 single "Nothing". This is a nice addition to Universal's budget "Icon" series, designed to deliver the artists biggest hits on CD at a low price. I think his succeeds as this has almost all of her big signature hits. Although, I do think to make it more accurate "Rhythm Nation" should be included here instead of "Alright". But regardless, this CD is full of great songs, and I believe they remastered it because they sound better than ever.

I recommend this to anyone who wants to acquaint themselves with Janet's music as well as the hardcore fans who buy everything she releases, like me ! :)
