About this album

“Janet” (stylished as “janet.” for the album artwork) is the fifth studio album by American Dance-Pop artist, Janet Jackson. The album was released on May 18, 1993 on Virgin Records. Prior to its release, Jackson was at the center of a high-profile bidding war over her recording contract. Her original label A&M sought to renew her contract, while others, such as Atlantic, Capitol, and Virgin all vied to sign her. After meeting with Virgin owner Richard Branson, she signed with the label for an unprecedented multi-million dollar contract, making her the world’s then-highest paid musical act. The album “janet.” debut on the Billboard 200 albums chart at # 1 with the largest first week sales in history for a female artist at the time. It also peaked at #1 on both the Top Hip-Hop/R&B Albums, Canadian Albums Chart and the UK Albums Chart. The album includes the hit singles “That’s The Way Love Goes”, “If”, “Again”, “Anytime Anyplace”, “Throb”, “You Want This”, “Whoops Now” and “What’ll I Do.”

    vv Some better track sequencing probably would've cured that and made a big difference. Each half teeters ever so little into monotony and no doubt trimming off tracks would've been nice. Placing the ballads sporadically would've definitely increased the effectiveness of each of the songs. As for the cliche-ness of the album, it's whole concept seems to be based on one, so it's something you basically gotta look over to really enjoy most of this.

    Great album but I prefer the second half to the first... it's less forced and "busy". Tracks like If are quite simply overproduced and we don't get to fully appreciate their sonic strata as the arrangements rarely let up in sheer density. Also, like some of even Janet's best work, it can fall into the cliché trap occasionally...

    I don't disagree that Erotica is more neatly interwoven as a conceptual album or that it was unfairly overshadowed by the sex book controversy. The janet. album did feel too sprawling at times; but Janet had a tough act to follow in RN1814 and a new contract to live up to. In the end though, I think the stronger songs are stronger (and far more sonically varied) than those in Erotica even though there is more filler.

    I don't get the basis of comparison between janet. and Erotica outside of the time release and there being some stuff about sex. But if I had to pick which I prefer, well, I'd definitely pick janet. I love Erotica too, but I can't make myself love 'Did You Do It' or 'Waiting'. And I wish they'd fix it -- JUST 'janet.' [22]

    janet. < Erotica [2] It was around the same time Janet and Madonna released their most sexual records, and there is a reason Madonna's got bashed and Janet's went to #1, sellling more than 20 million and becoming one of the best selling albums ever. Because Madonna's sexy is gross and Janet's sexy is classy/

    Unfortunally if you have the original CD and rip it, it will say Janet and it does not affect the listening at all.
