    Rated R was great but it was way too contrived to be up in the ranks of The Velvet Rope.

      The only reference I had from it was Together Again and, surely, once you give the album a full listen , you find out it´s way deeper than that !
      Agrees!

      I only started listening to Janet's music (by accident) a few days ago, and it might sound a bit crazy, but Velvet Rope is already one of my favourite albums of all time! Apart from "Everytime" I genuinely think every song is awesome.

      "Rope Burn" especially has really grown on me today. That song is just PURE SEX!! It's a good thing Janet sings so soft and my mum is half deaf otherwise I think my mum would be having words with me about playing those lyrics on the speakers

      Everytime is lovely

      P.s don't listen to Throb load.
      @ Kaloki :
      anyway, I think we had the same feeling and it´s not weird at all . Once I listened to the album , it quickly became one of my favorite of all time , as I said.
      @Pawlu : You´re absolutely right on your advice or should I say warning ?

      How could they explain how I feel ?

          Yes. I used to think RN was an improvement of Control, but I have to rethink that.
          IMO you don´t have to rethink anything...
          I share your opinion, RN is an improvement over Control .
          But don´t get me wrong, I think Control is an awesome album , especially for someone as young as Janet was back then

                Every Time Video
                That song was a huge hit here in the Philippines!

                Actually, if I were to enumerate Janet's biggest hits here, it would be the following:

                1. "Again"
                2. "Together Again"
                3. "Let's Wait Awhile"
                4. "Every Time"
                5. "Scream"
                6. "Someone to Call My Lover"
                7. "Whoops Now"
                8. "All for You"
                9. "Escapade"
                10. "Rhythm Nation"

                • Janet (the album) isn't on UK iTunes?!?! :x

                  Tbh I still only like a few songs from the album, but they are all songs I'm desperate to get - "Thats the Way Love Goes", "If", and "Anytime Anyplace" in particular as they're just stupidly good!

                  Comment


                  • It's crazy Janet has never had a UK #1 single. I couldn't believe it when I found that out. I for sure thought "What Have You Done For Me Lately?", "That's The Way Love Goes", "Together Again" or "All For You" would have got her a #1!
                    Beyoncé. Mariah. Mary. Janet.

                      Can't you get those from The Best?

                      • Its her biggest album in UK, I don't understand why it isn't on iTunes. She is slowly moving away from the industry it seems like.

                        • Maybe her Greatest Hits (#1s) was the last thing she ever wanted to put out.

                            She does absolutely atrociously on iTunes - out of every big name female you can think of, she's bottom of the league tables. Its quite startling actually!

                            So this could be a reason why she doesn't do so well - if some of her catalog isn't available...

                                Yes, worse than Toni!

                                If you were to use the Kworb website - which measures global iTunes performance - Janet isn't present in the top 3,000 artists worldwide. Toni is #966, charting songs in 14 countries...

                                  • 'The Best' is almost always present in the Top 200 R&B albums though.

                                      It has the R. Kelly remix of 'Any Time Any Place'. :(

                                        I know but I Always hear people how much they prefer the remix to the orginal, not in my case.

                                                            • Nobody knows! She's being a typical Jackson (apart from LaToya) and is being all distant and secretive. I highly doubt she's working on new music - in fact I'm starting to question whether she'll release new music at all. She seems very content being a wife, she has money and has had all the success anyone could imagine so she may just discreetly bow out without any fanfare. I'd love to be wrong but thats my gut feeling. :(
