  • The debate always seems to be whether this or AFY was her best 2000s album. For me, it's definitely AFY, but this is easily second. If I rank the songs from both albums, it's roughly like this...

    1. Truth
    2. Someone To Call My Lover
    3. When We Oooo
    4. Son of a Gun

    5. Moist
    6. China Love
    7. All For You
    8. Doesn't Really Matter
    9. Trust a Try
    10. Come On Get Up

    11. Strawberry Bounce
    12. Feels So Right
    13. I Want You
    14. Like You Don't Love Me

    15. Would You Mind
    16. R&B Junkie
    17. All Nite

    18. Better Days
    19. Warmth
    20. Truly
    21. SloLove
    22. Just a Little While
    23. Damita Jo
    24. My Baby
    25. Thinkin Bout My Ex
    26. Island Life

    27. You Ain't Right
    28. Spending Time With You
    29. Sexhibition

    30. Love Scene (Ooo Baby)

      I looove every song from 1-15. From 16-28 are songs I like, but I'm not crazy about them. Only truly dislike JALW and Son Of A Gun.

      AFY has more highlights, but Damita Jo is better overall for me.

      • Still love this album! I am so happy to have bought the Japanese version!

        • This + The Velvet Rope are the albums I love the most. Both of them offer an eclectic selection of sounds, rhythm, vibes and emotions that are hard to find in an average album. The Velvet Rope is very personal and Damita Jo is a collection of sounds and styles when she feels real comfortable being in. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this

          • All Nite was the ratchet anthem that never was. Easily the best thing to come from this album.

                Yes yes yes!!
                I listened to this album last year when I was sunbathing at the beach and it was amazing. It felt so good.

                This, Velvet Rope & Discipline are my favorite albums of her. I think this one is my ultimate favorite.

                    Thinkin` Bout My X - could refer to ex, but probably not.
                    Warmth - hmm.
                    Moist - bleah.
                    Slo Love - why do Americans equate sex to love?
                    Put Your Hands On Me - touch of my hand?

                        Such a fantastic record, from start to end.
                        So much wasted potential too. Loooove this album.

                        • I remember buying it on my lunch break on the day of release. Listened to it as soon as I got home and it was an incredible experience

                              My instant faves were My Baby and Island Life but not so much now

                                I'll always be upset that this record never got its chance to shine, and due to such ridiculous, disgusting circumstances at that.

                                  All this. Deserved so much more and it's better than AFY.

                                    Agreed. This deserved much more (than AYF).

                                    My favourites are 'All Nite (Don't Stop)' - I still lose it when I hear this in a club - 'Island Life', 'Thinking' Bout My Ex', 'I Want You', 'Moist' and "Warmth'.

                                    The second half of the album is so strong.

                                        • I like Damita Ho more than All for You too. All for You is a fantastic album in its own right, though.

                                            I think I played this album for a month straight before finally changing CD

                                            Also, no mp3 on phones back then. Just 10 second audio notes, so I remember recording 10 seconds each of My Baby, Island Life and Warmth

                                                TUNE. I still thibk it should have been the lead single.

                                                  Imagine if that Justin performance was replaced with 'All Nite' instead

                                                  R&B was huge in 2004, and Janet could have been up there with Usher and Alicia Keys. It was such a traumatic year for the fans

                                                    ^ Never thought of that. An 'All Nite' performance would've been so epic.

                                                    I never understand why they picked 'Just A Little While' as the first single. I really like the track, but it literally doesn't sound like anything else on the album. 'All Nite' would've been better. Or 'My Baby'.
