Let's all gather around and remember good times, huh?
I finally picked up this album. Oh boy, no wonder people are so dissapointed with Janet's recent output. I only knew 'That's the Way love goes', 'Again' and 'Whoops Now' (one of her biggest songs was a Hidden Track?! Wow) before, but the rest is amazing. The first 17 Tracks are a nonstop Dance pop marathon with some amazing 'New Jack' beats (that's a deep groove on 'If'), experimenting with chick rock (What'll I do) and the opera vocals and strings on 'This Time' are phenomenal, very Morricone. I love the House-beats on 'Throb'. It's Madonna's 'Erotica' done the right way. I think I'm gonna cry thinking of all her albums from 'All for you' upwards. Well, at least I still have 'Velvet Rope' and 'Rhythm Nation' to discover. New Janet fans who only know her 00's output are definitely in for a treat.
You only do such a phenomenal album once in a lifetime. Thank you Janet for delivering the goods.
