    I'm spending a lazy afternoon in the sun with Janet, a book and a joint, and this album is hitting every spot right now. When does it not? But in the sun (the proper sun) it all sounds so delicious. What'll I Do was made for this.

    Janet truly is one of the greatest divas ever, make no mistake, and the Janet. era was really just iconic start to end. Today's pop girls could not.

    The album would be iconic for If, if nothing else. But of course, there's That's The Way Love Goes, Throb, This Time, etc.

    i recently came across the rhythm nation short film - had never seen it. she was really good and it's a blessing and a curse she was michael's younger sister.

    between control, rhythm nation and janet., she will always be one of my favourite pop artists. (yes, i find the velvet rope overrated though stuff like got till is gone, i get so lonely, go deep is top tier miss jackson).

    It actually looks like a not-too-bloated album when you strip out the interludes.

    Honestly behind every decent Janft album is a fantastic 12 track Janft album.

    I've always hated her stupid interludes.

    Anyway - this is a very good album and the campaign was spectacular. On some days it's my favourite Janette album but I have to say that at the time The Velvet Rope was more of an important album for me. So yeah, depends on my mood..

    Can't believe I rated this a FIVE back in '08. I must have really went through an anti-Janft phase. I'd give it an 8.5 these days.
