    Never. VoR did it.

    It was just for fun. A lot of rates never get results anyway, only recently did we start doing official results... we just liked to rate and rank in the past

    *cough George Michael*

    He did ask me if I could tally up the votes for his Banshee rate, but to be honest, I'd rather do an excel sheet for the Michael and Janet rate for him instead.

    And funky did say he wanted to promptly complete his Madge countdown so he could finally do the George results, he even bumped the thread to say he was currently calculating the votes.

    Go for it, Rapture! I was really looking forward to that Jackson rate. Were Jacksons singles added? Shame cause I'd be Walk Right Now FTW!

    just bought a second hand vinyl of this in brisbane - australians always seem to have amazing record shops everywhere
    anyway the shopkeeper told me "we were just saying how much we hate this record when we were opening today" while i was paying
    i told him i did not understand his question and refused to respond to it

    This album really is a bit underrated compared to Rhythm Nation and Janet. But it really a great pop album and far less bloated than every other record she's released.

    It’s just “joy”. In the same way “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” is.

    And let’s face it, one of the greatest pop lyrics of all time has to be “No my first name ain’t baby, it’s Janet, Miss Jackson if you’re nasty...”

    Oh God

    I remember lending my 12" of When I Think Of You to a school friend, who is someone I've not thought of for years, so I had a look on Facebook for him.

    He DIED three years ago

    What's new on that? I've got the EU version of the original on CD but that's only got 8 tracks to its name. Is there anything new worth shilling out for here?
