"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.

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 Each of the songs are awesome, but some of the "weaker songs" could have been left out, and been replaced by those wonderful b-sides of the album "One More Chance", "And on And On" and "70's Love Groove"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.

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.

Janet Jackson's "Janet" is an amazing album. It basically takes you through her sex life and love life in many different ways and in every style of music imaginable.

That's The Way Love Goes (4/5) - A mid-tempo R&B/Pop song, this was her biggest hit. It is nice and soothing, and is the perfect song to begin the album. It repeats itself a lot at the beginning though.

You Want This (4/5) - A nice song, it seems a bit dull, but there's nothing really wrong with it.

If (5/5) - This is an amazing mix of Rock, Rap and R&B. Janet raps a lot of the song, the guitar lines are amazing and the hook is one of the most memorable I've ever heard. Also, the video, which is set in some sort of strange Cirque d'Soleil is spectacular. The best song on the album.

This Time (5/5) - This song shows Janet mixing Classical, Opera and Pop. It has some beautiful opera vocals, mixed with Janet's voice at just the right time.

Throb (4.5/5) - This song reminds me a lot of Madonna. A hardcore euro-dance song. Janet does a great job at this, the song is simple, but very listenable.

What'll I Do (4/5) - This song is odd, and sounds a bit out of place for Janet, but I'm glad she tried it. It's a country/rock song and for this being so far away from what she usually does, she did it well.

Funky Big Band (4.5/5) - Yeah, it's funky big band. A nice song, goes on a bit too long though.

New Agenda (5/5) - Along with the best rapper of all time, Chuck D, Janet makes a statement about racism. A great song with a great message.

Because Of Love (4/5) - This was another one of her singles, it did well, but I don't think it should have been. It sounds too much like You Want This to me anyways.
