Janet's 10th studio album, Discipline is out in 8th place. It's her only album released with Island Records, and while it has a huge list of collaborators and producers part of it, it does not contain work from her long time partners that helped to shape her career until this point. So it is in many ways a departure for her. The sound too is quite a departure for her, as she explores a range of genres from electropop, to house, and dance-pop whist still maintaining the R&B and hip-hop sounds she'd mastered previously. The album's singles were 'Feedback', 'Rock with U', 'Luv' and 'Can't B Good', but only the former made any real impact on the charts. While it did reach #1 in the US, its sales were nothing to ring home about and it remains one of her leats successful projects - this led to her departing from the record label after only one album released with them.

08. Discipline [7 votes / 53.85%]
09. 20 Y.O. [7 votes / 77.78%]
10. Janet Jackson [3 votes / 20.00%]
11. Dream Street [8 votes / 53.33%]

I recall Damita Jo being slightly more consistent than All For You, although that had better highs. Might have to give them a relisten!

Also can I just say how incredible the Control artwork is? One of my favourite album covers of all time wub.gif
I bought the vinyl years ago in a charity shop before I even knew the album well, just based on the cover alone.

The artwork really is CLASSIC in every sense of the world. I need more Janet vinyl.


All For You out. It is definitely my least favourite of all her albums.

It really is. Also HI, haven't seen you on here in forever!

I've bought quite a few on vinyl now Control, Rhythm Nation, Janet and The Velvet Rope. Just need to get Damita Jo and then that's all my favourites <3
