  • I loved Damita Jo. One of my favourite albums of 2004. Too bad it flopped.

      It's actually my second fave Janet album after "The Velvet Rope".
      Ditto!

      DJ is a brilliant album, and one of my fave records ever! I still can't beleive how much it tanked.

      20.Y.O is a poor attempt compared to DJ i think. She could've done much better this time round.

      I wonder what's next for her?

      • A 4 year break is what she needs I think.

          • I love this album as well. Since Jan is oneof my fav artists I dont know where to place this. The only order I can make is......

            1) Rhythm Nation
            2) janet.
            3) The Velvet Rope
            4) Control

            And i dont know if I like it more than 20 Y.O. or now, cuz I listen to 20 more then I did DJ, but DJ was more enjoyable IMO.
            WHAT HAPPENED TO UKMIX ???

                I kinda agree, Damita Jo may not offer anything outstanding, but as a whole tha album is big! Every song fits together in its own way. I wouldnt go as far as saying my favourite record, but its definetly up there. "Damita Jo" was so under-rated. '20YO" is nothing compared to this, but even "20YO" has its damita jo moments. "With you" and "Take Care" wouldnt be out of place on this set.

                "Spending Time With You" is probably one of tha best R&B songs of this century.. cant get enough of that song even now..

                      Discipline and Damita Jo are different, Discipline is more "comercial".... if she promotes it

                        • My fave Janet album from the 2000s. Even the bonus tracks are just amazing!

                          • They really are. Put your hands on, is like part 2 of That's The Way Love Goes.

                            • It alternates with Control as my 2nd favourite Janet album (All For You is my favourite - flawless).

                              I love the relaxed, summery vibe of all the tracks, and how it's all lovely and lovey dovey.

                              Currently my favourite track is Island Life makes me wish for summer!

                                    I have so many favourites on that album!
                                    All For You, When We Oooo, China Love, Trust a Try, Son of a Gun, Truth, Someone to Call My Lover, Feels So Right, Doesn't Really Matter!

                                    As for Damita Jo, there are nowhere near as many standout tracks on there, but it flows really nicely and was the last album that actually felt like a consistent 'Janet Jackson' record.

                                    • I agree, it's the last one where I can listen to it all the way through (The 2nd half of 20YO is pretty crap, and Discipline has a handful of really crap songs mixed in - and the interludes are AWFUL)

                                      It makes me sad that America shunned her after the Superbowl incident and this album and it's singles did so badly - "My Baby" could have been #1 for weeks!

                                        Take that back! The second half has 'Take Care' - Janet's sexiest song ever!

                                        • That's my least favourite on the whole album, tied with Love 2 Love

                                          Roll Witchu is the best song from that era though

                                          • all nite is one of the best dance songs of all times. I will always love damita jo for this song! Janet's sales might have dropped, but her musical sense and greatness is still on top.

                                              amen. IMO this was her last album that didn't deserve to flop.

                                              it's not as brilliant as Rhythm Nation, janet., or Velvet Rope (one of the best albums EVER)...but "My Baby" SCREAMS single! "Strawberry Bounce" is fabulous and "Island Life" is a personal fave too ;)
