    Editorial Review

    Before Sgt. Pepper, no one seriously thought of rock music as actual art. That all changed in 1967, though, when John, Paul, George and Ringo (with "A Little Help" from their friend, producer George Martin) created an undeniable work of art which remains, after 30-plus years, one of the most influential albums of all time. From Lennon's evocative word/sound pictures (the trippy "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds," the carnival-like "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite") and McCartney's music hall-styled "When I'm 64," to Harrison's Eastern-leaning "Within You Without You," and the avant-garde mini-suite, "A Day in the Life," Sgt.Pepper was a milestone for both '60s music and popular culture.--Billy Altman ...

    Editorial Review

    No Doubt's 1995 release, Tragic Kingdom, brought Southern California's ska scene to a national stage while elevating the band to star status. An irresistible mix of reggae, punk, and power pop, Tragic Kingdom scored several hits, among them "Spiderwebs," "Just a Girl," and "Don't Speak." Singer Gwen Stefani's looks made the group MTV shoo-ins, but her soaring voice is the real star, as evidenced by such songs as "Happy Now?"--a classic you'll-regret-you-dumped-me anthem that recalls Blondie--and the bouncy "Sunday Morning." Despite recurring themes of pain and regret, Tragic Kingdom manages to somehow feel sunny throughout. --Courtney Kemp ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Coldplay required a lifetime to make their wonderfully assured debut,Parachutes. But it tookless than two years for the moody British quartet to deliver a masterful follow-up. As a band, Coldplay have advanced to a stage where they outshine nearly every oneof their rivals in terms of imagination and emotional pull. A Rush of Bloodto the Head is a soulful, exhilarating journey, moving from the catharticrock of "Politik" to the hushed tones of "Green Eyes" without once breaking itsmesmerizing spell. Singer Chris Martin takes his voice on soaring flights,reaching places only JeffBuckley previously dared to go. And the music is nearly flawless, apersuasive cross between PinkFloyd and the Verve.Even if they haven't come up with another "Yellow," you would be hard-pressed tocare. This is exquisite stuff. --Aidin Vaziri ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    At a time when experimentation is taboo in most overground rap, that’s all Outkast seem intent on executing. Firstly, this double CD has no cohesive link, other than the fact that it sounds like a pair of solo albums stitched together to demo exactly how Andre’s yin works to augment Big Boi’s yang. Andre 3000’s Love Below disc rates as the more eclectic of the two, given that he’s turned in his emcee credentials to become a full-on funk-soul-jazz vocalist who mostly sings about items of love ("Happy Valentine's Day"), carnal lust ("Spread"), and female adoration ("Prototype"). Minus the big band schmaltz of "Love Hater" and cheesy cover jobs ("My Favorite Things"), Andre’s disc is sick (meaning great). As is to be expected, the Big Boi disc is less arty, more gangsta and worldly, and features the less-progressive guest raps of ATL crunk purveyors Lil’ Jon and The Eastside Boyz ("Last Call") and Jay-Z who rhymes the hook on "Flip Flop Rock". Unlike Big Boi, Andre keeps his collabos to a minimum, once crooning alongside Norah Jones on the cool yet sappy "Take Off Your Cool", and once with Kelis. Boi fulfills his Dungeon Family duty with flying colors by flipping some dirty southern up-tempo raps over electro beats on "GhettoMusick". By the time Cee-Lo sermonizes on "Reset", Speakerboxx and Love Below rate mostly as majestic and inspiring, with the remaining 23 per cent being just plain incredible --Dalton Higgins ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    With the pop sense of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks now leading the band, Fleetwood Mac moved completely away from blues and created this homage to love, Southern California-style. Each songwriter makes his or her presence known: Nicks for her dreamy, mystical reveries ("Dreams," "Gold Dust Woman:); Christine McVie for her ultra-catchy slogans ("Don't Stop"); and Buckingham for his deceptively simple pop songs ("Second Hand News," "Go Your Own Way"). "The Chain," written collectively, is the Mac at their most dramatic. But it's the ensemble playing, the elastic rhythms, and lush harmonies that transform the material into classic FM fare. --Rob O'Connor ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Michael Jackson's Thriller is the bestselling album of all time, with 45 million worldwide sales powered by seven Top 10 U.S. singles and eight Grammy Awards. The 1982 album was also a success from which the pop superstar never really recovered--subsequent albums seemed to have no other goal than to beat the records set by Thriller. The highly-polished sound of Quincy Jones's production sounds almost organic compared to Jackson's more recent work, and in the same regard, Thriller was significantly slicker than its predecessor, Off the Wall. Both albums established a Jackson style that aimed for the dance floor with songs built on a state-of-the-art bed of percussion and keyboards. Elements of milestone Thriller tracks like "Billie Jean" (arguably Jackson's best-ever performance) and "Beat It" (with its hard-rock solo by guitarist Eddie Van Halen) influenced not just Jackson's records, but those of the entire dance-pop world. On the song "Thriller," Jackson indulged his taste for the juvenile and invited Vincent Price to rap in a really scary voice. With Thriller the album, Jackson created a different kind of monster--a hit album of such magnitude that it would have an irrevocable impact not just on the singer's art, but on his altogether kooky life. --John Milward ...

    Editorial Review

    Despite millions of album sales, 'N Sync are an obvious No. 2 to label mates the Backstreet Boys. Fittingly, they try harder--too hard, in fact--through most of their second non-Christmas disc, No Strings Attached. The quintet and Strings' dozen-plus producers fill these 47 minutes with bland ballads by Diane Warren and Richard Marx, mildly funky workouts like a cover of Johnny Kemp's "Just Got Paid" and the muddled "Space Cowboy," and gimmicks such as "Digital Get Down" that hardly lend credence to whatever career-longevity claims they might want to lodge. This is a guaranteed smash, but judged on the merits of its weak material and less than compelling vocal performances, No Strings Attached should be long forgotten by the time the Backstreeters' next CD arrives. --Rickey Wright ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best modern day emo albums without a doubt
    Im definately nota big fan of these current MTV styled emo/screamo style bands popping up all over the place.In fact 99.9% of them, i absolutely hate.

    I would class Finch in the same musiclal category, but when i bought this album when it originally came out in 2002, what i heard was real passion and energy, something which i personally think is lacking in many new style over substance bands.

    They lyrics on What it is to Burn are defiantely, well i guess theyre cliched, about relationships and girls yknow the deal, but theyre delivered with such heart wrenching emotion that i cant help but be moved by them.

    The music is what really stands out for me though.Theyve got the quiet/loud dynamic honed down to a fine art, and the screaming which is used quiet a lot throughout the cd really helps to compliment the raging guitars.I never once felt that the screaming was just thrown in to get the '-core' crowd interested or for scene cred.

    Overall id say theres a really good mix of styles here, it has heavy parts, a decent amount of screaming vocals, and some melodic almost pop-punk style hooks, and some great catchy upbeat,feel-good, soaring choruses (notably on track
    Perfection through silence)

    The best thing about this cd in my opinion is the production bt Mark Trombino. In my humble view, it is absolutely oustanding.Each track flows flawlessly to the next and he adds little bits of distortion and industrial style noises which give a dark brooding feel to some songs, especially the interlude between Ender and What it is to burn.

    I can listen to this cd from start to finish without skipping a single song, and theres such a good variety of music styles on offer that its difficult to feel bored.



    i feel a real connection with this album, and especially with the final title track, where Nate screams his lungs out saying 'SHE BURNS'.Intense

    Definately recommended if you like the current trend or emo/screamo and post hardcore bands, but remember thst Finch released this album in 2002 before emo was as popular as it is now.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Solid band... good music
    When I first heard Finch I knew they were an amazing band, that played good rock and mixed it with some sort-of-heavy vocals, and I liked their style right away as I thought it was very similar to Story of the Year (especially their earlier sound) or Jimmy Eat World.
    However, they're not the best band ever like some people insist on saying. They rock alright, their sound is quite enjoyable, but it's not like "What It Is Burn" is the best CD ever made and Finch is the best band ever. I mean, c'mon, with all due respect to the band, there are far better musicians out there.
    If you're looking for some very good music buy this CD, it's great. But if you want to buy an excellent CD, then you'd better check somewhere else buddy.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Dialate D Sucks
    Its true that this album is nothing special really when it comes to emo, its pretty much the norm, but to say that finch don't have talent is a big mistake.Dialate D or whatever his name is proved that he listens to crappy music by saying that there are thousands of bands out there with talent.In reality, theres probably about 100 bands that i would even consider listening to.Finch is one of them.Grow up, just because posers like it doesnt mean you cant. ...

    Editorial Review

    1989's Straight Outta Compton, by Dre's previous outfit N.W.A., may have shined the public spotlight on the genre, but The Chronic legitimized it. That is not to say that Snoop Doggy Dogg (The Chronic marks his debut) and Dre's raps are for everyone; the subject matter is the sex, drugs, violence, and politics of South Central Los Angeles, and the phrasing is explicit, to say the least. But The Chronic's real genius is the music. By breeding hip-hop, jazz (studio instrumentation includes saxophones and flutes), funk, and soul (sampled artists include Parliament, Donny Hathaway, and Isaac Hayes), Dre creates downright intoxicating grooves. If you can't feel The Chronic pulsating through your veins, maybe your heart's not pumping. --Bill Crandall ... Read more

    We don't realize that the events that happen in the present are history.

    This album is classic, historical and one of the greatest hip hop/ rap albums ever. This was in the early 90s when if you really think about it, rap was still new. It was in its prime. We had Dr. Dre and Snoop running the industry. This is when west coast music was felt all over the U.S.

    This was before all that so-called "east-west coast beef". This is another historical hip hop album. This album laid the ground work. Classic album. Must have for collectors. ... Read more

Guess what morons, the entire youth of the country is listening to your music, and you're not rebelling against anything in particular, except maybe yourself. Let's face it, the message behind this music is that cutting yourself and writing songs about the same thing over and over again will get you famous. All you need to be able to do is scream. F*ck singing, that doesn't matter. Screamin is badass. That'll get me my money. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Considered by many to be the Material Girl's most mature effort of the '80s, Like a Prayer upped the ante of controversy with its gospel-infused title track and the singer's emotional confessions throughout. It also unveiled the hit "Express Yourself," which ushered in the era of Madonna as a "stainless steel sexual icon." Musically, Prayer showcased her burgeoning songwriting prowess, with the beautiful "Oh Father" and the perky pop of "Cherish." Besides a throw-away collaboration with Prince ("This Is Not a Love Song"), the CD stands as one of her strongest works, eschewing the strong dance beat influences from her past--she saved that for the remixes--and concentrating instead on melody and structure. Like a Prayer also gave a hint of things to come with the delightful "Dear Jessie" displaying a maternal side worthy of her name. --Steve Gdula ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Her most polished work
    I originally bought this on cassette back when it was first released in 1989 and remember the furor over the video to "Like A Prayer" with the burning crosses and Pepsi cancelling their contract with her because of all the negative publicity.

    The censorship hasn't let up since.

    Madonna showed, once again, that she wasn't afraid to cross boundaries and use a taboo subject - religion - to sell her music.In 1989, she was Roman Catholic and shrugged off the comments about what a lousy Catholic she really was (she's so lousy that even though she converted to another religion when she had her children, she chose to name them after two Catholic saints - Our Lady of Lourdes and San Rocco).

    This is Madonna's most polished work of the 80's - and possibly of her career.She proved that she could be pop but included serious messages in her music, such as with "Oh Father" (having to deal with abusive men in her life) and "Till Death Do Us Part" about, again, being in an abusive relationship."Promise To Try" has a beautiful melody but with super sad lyrics.

    I do enjoy "Love Song."I didn't think Madonna and Prince would make a good songwriting team but, boy, was I wrong!

    You can't be a Madonna fan and not have this in your collection.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Like the best.....
    I got this album 6 years ago. I love this album! It shows that Madonna has mature and even her music sounds different in this album. The album gives us a look on Madonna's personal side for the first time and also the first time that we don't see Madonna's face on the album cover.

    1. Like a Prayer- I love this song.5/5

    2. Express Yourself- this song is THE BEST! But I wish it was like the video mix. The video mix is better. 4/5

    3. Love Song- fun to listen to and I really like the beats. I really do. 5/5

    4. Till Death Do Us Part-the song mentions about an abusive wife. Could this be about Sean and Madonna? 5/5

    5. Promise to Try- Awww...this song is so sad. 5/5

    6. Cherish- I love this song....I listen to it when I'm in a good mood. 5/5

    7. Dear Jessie- This song is awkward because this is not like her to write a song about pink elephants and lemonade. But's it's really fun to listen to.

    8. Oh Father- OMG! I love this song. It's so sad and so is the video. 5/5

    9. Keep It Together-This song is okay. 3/5

    10. Spanish Eyes-This song is very romantic and so are the beats.5/5

    11. Act of Contrition-It's really weird to listen to this but funny at the same time. I had no idea that it's really Like A Prayer playing backwards. 2/5

    Overall, I give this album 10/10.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Probebly her best Overall album
    Out of all of Madonna's albums, Like a Prayer is her most explicit attempt at a major artistic statement. Even though it is apparent that she is trying to make a "serious" album, the kaleidoscopic variety of pop styles on Like a Prayer is quite dazzling. Ranging from the deep funk of "Express Yourself" and "Keep It Together" to the haunting "Oh Father" and "Like a Prayer," Madonna displays a commanding sense of songcraft, making this her best and most consistent album. ...

    Common wisdom holds that debut albums have an autobiographical slant, so it's hard to believe that Justin Timberlake's first non-'N Sync outing doesn't purloin much of its subject matter from the singer's breakup with Britney Spears. Half the songs are about the abrupt severing of a romance and the singer's rather hard-hearted stance. Sure, he may have been the wronged party, but that doesn't excuse the inflexible emotional posture revealed in "Cry Me a River," "Never Again," and the sniping "Last Night." But Timberlake apparently thinks it does, since he christened his record Justified. He also seems to enjoy boasting about the swinging single life, with many of the songs here almost gratuitously lascivious. Asides like "I could think of a couple positions for you" from "Right for Me" and "Better have you naked by the end of this song" from "Rock Your Body" will catapult the singer right off Radio Disney. But Timberlake shines when he moonwalks into more adult terrain, turning his back on the innocent dance pop that put 'N Sync on the charts. With the help of hip-hop producers Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo of the Neptunes, Timbaland, and P. Diddy, Timberlake has turned out a remarkably cohesive and sophisticated slice of club-friendly R&B. --Jaan Uhelszki ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars excellent
    I don't know what you people are saying.First off, if you're going to review, review it on the ALBUM itself and not how 'girly' you think he is.I think he's one of the few male artists who can sing in a high voice without being irritating (like Eamon..hmm maybe none of you would remember him).Anyway, I just got this CD last night.It's very excellent.I'm not too crazy about the song with Janet Jackson in it.The rest of the songs are either catchy as hell or very heartfelt.'Never Again', 'Like I Love You', 'Take it From Here', 'Rock Your Body', and 'Cry Me a River' are my favorites.Great CD, I recommend it!-miz dj

    5-0 out of 5 stars This man leaves me in a state of awe
    "Justified" is the greatest album of all time, and Justin won a Grammy like he deserved to. Music was pretty much worthless before Justin Timberlake. Back then, we had pretentious and overrated bands like Stink Floyd, the Who, Led Zeppelin, and the Beatles getting by on hype. Their music had a few good moments but it was overall pretty bad. Then came Justin Timberlake, who changed everything. His album "Justified" is a 21st century masterpiece. Even though the production is credited to the Neptunes and Timbaland, you can tell that Justin was clearly wearing the pants in the studio. Hearing songs like "Seniorita," "Cry Me a River," and "Rock Your Body" just make me go wild! I really love Justin Timberlake and get very angry when people speak ill of him. EVERYONE MUST KNEEL BEFORE JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE AND ACKNOWLEDGE HIS AWESOME TALENT. This album is a classic, nuff said. Buy two copies.

    1-0 out of 5 stars This album is atrocious
    Nothing about this album is original, nothing stands out above what anybody else is doing, it has no depth. Now tell me, if Justin Timberlake wasn't decent looking, would you still buy this CD? The answer is no, because the album is selling discs off 100% sex appeal and over-budgeted music videos. Run from this CD or people like me will lock you up for destroying the world of music. ...

    Editorial Review

    Terrific sales of their independent Cheshire Cat got Blink-182 signed to a major label (MCA) for 1997's Dude Ranch, which led to radio hits ("Dammit," "Josie") and platinum sales. No "sell-out" on the band's part, though, as Dude Ranch simply features another infectious collection of snotty vocals, punchy rhythms, vivid lyrics, and aggressive chords. San Diego producer Mark Trombino shines some of the scuffed edges, but this is still good ol' Blink at its sunny, effervescent best. Nice "emocore" spoof here ("Emo"), plus an odd knack for crafting bass-lines that recall--seriously!--New Order, and vocal harmonies that owe debts to the Beach Boys. --Mark Woodlief ... Read more

    People will say that this isnt punk rock, and while it may not be, who cares? Everyone has different musical taste, and just because you dont like it doesnt mean other people cant. Whatever Blink-182 is (music genre-wise), I love all of their music. Now on to the review. Great song-writing, Great instruments, Great vocals (Tom can get kind of annoying after a while...). Overall great CD: Stand out tracks: Pathetic, Dammit, Waggy, Untitled, Apple Shampoo, Emo, Josie, and A New Hope. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Rapid-fire and snooty punk at its best
    It all started when a friend of mine asked me to download "Just Rock and Roll".Back then I had a terrible dial-up connection, so the song had to be damned worth the twenty minutes I would take in downloading it.I wasn't disappointed, but I wasn't amazed either.It sounded like another punk-rock song from another bunch of angry snooty kids.

    And then, on June 2nd, 2002, I went to the Düsseldorf performance of the Deconstruction Tour, where bands like Lagwagon, Lostprophets and the Mighty Mighty Bosstones rocked a crowd of a thousand screaming Germans.Midtown was the third performer after Flogging Molly and the Turbo AC's (for the full concert review, click here).This concert motivated me into buying Save the World, Lose the Girl, the band's major-label debut.

    With a sound comparable to New Found Glory, these guys foment power through their punk-driven speed, but stay close to the themes and issues beneath.But more importantly, however, is the way in which the songs are crafted.In many of the songs, the band steers away from the verse-chorus-verse-chorus-bridge-chorus structure that seems to plague the punk-rock scene.Instead, the variation of rhythms provides for very original material.Songs like "Direction" and "Such a Person" are almost a progressive representation of a punk song, with the song changing direction at every turn.

    Similar to Guster and Nine Days, Midtown does not limit itself to one vocalist.Singer/bassist Gabe Saporta has that focused and unbreakable voice that screams high-school jock while the band's singer/guitarist has the sensitive voice for softer pieces like "No Place Feels Like Home" (which is more of a pop song than a punk song).Honestly, I'm not even sure that they are different people.For all I know, it's just Saporta changing his intonation, which honestly, would be even more impressive.

    But yes, Midtown equals punk rock plus talented musicians.There's no doubting this.They're definitely up there amongst my favorite bands in the genre.So if bands like Saves the Day and New Found Glory pull your strings, then picking this album up is a definite affirmative.

    Recommendations: "Just Rock and Roll", "Direction", "No Place Feels Like Home", "Such a Person", "Knew it All Along"

    5-0 out of 5 stars Don't Touch the Leather
    It's unfortunate that my review can only be written in words and you can't see the David Lee Roth-esq jump kicks that I'm busting out like I do every time I think about, never mind listen to, this album.As much as I love Living Well is the Best Revenge (which is the best album in the world), it's always nice to go back to a great band's beginnings and listen to where they've come from.I compare the experience to throwing in Led Zepplin's first album.Raw unabashed musical genius - unforgettable the way's great bands' first albums should be.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Midtown, They raise the notch on punk bands!
    Midtown is overall a great band and this cd exhibits those qualities that raise the standards of what a punk band should be.

    The vocals are some of the most harmonized and soothing, yet edgy and "in your face." I'm not trying to tell you that the vocals can't satisfy punk band standards because that is far from the truth.They can dig out the screams and yells or whatever you want.

    The guitar parts are simple yet simple in their complexity.These rythms are very catchy and the band stays together almost exactly

    I give this band 5 Stars and the cd 5 stars. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Under the Radar***
    "From Chaos" tends to be one of the least mentioned albums by 311 fans.This is both interesting and unsurprising, since the album is nothing new or special, but packs some of the band's best singles.Truely 311 may get a bad rap for predictability, but after a decade, they can still surprise you.

    Though it may be a typical 311 outing, the band does offer something new: emotion.They do rehash a few tricks, namely the funk-punk of the harder numbers, like "Sick Tight," "Hostile Apostle," and "You Get Worked."Even pop numbers like "From Chaos" and and the borderline hair-metal of "You Wouldn't Believe" are nice, if not calculated.But the real treat are the ballads."Champagne" bubbles with slow grooviness, aching for a chill-party like nothing 311 has accomplished previously.And "Amber" and "I'll Be Here A While" proved to be two of the most surprise come-back singles of the year.Buy it for the band.Stay for the singles.

    Overall:6 out of 10.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This album rocks
    311 is a premier band in our day and age, and they stand apart from a lot of musical acts that are out there and creating waves.I believe they nailed their sound with this record, and I commend them for doing such a good job by recording it live.The rock songs are energetic, the ballads are lovely, and I can tell they are having a blast playing them.That's all I can really ask for when I anticipate a new album from these guys.They come up with song ideas that are good, melodies that are refreshing, while fusing many styles with funk and zest.

    It's amazing that they've been around this long, surviving under the spotlight of media criticism that circulates and stabs what it basically doesn't understand (in the form of 311).In the end it's all about what you like, and what your personal taste is (like if someone hates steak, who are they to tell you not to eat it?).Not everyone can enjoy 311, while others revel in their majesty.I like to consider myself enlightened to their work, and feel very fortunate to have found them in my life.

    This record feels like a revamp of some of their older albums at times (especially on the first track "You get worked"), but it still carries a flavor that is fresh and welcoming to the ears of a loyal fan.Sort of, here's something new, but here's something we know you'll love.You get the best of both worlds.
    Ron St. Germain produced what is the sixth album from 311, and he seems to bring out the best in them (he is said to have been jumping around while they were laying down tracks in the studio).He produced the "blue album" in 1995 which was 311's biggest commercial success, and I believe they wanted to recapture some of that magic and optimism that they were feeling a few years ago.Before then they had been virtually unknown to most radio stations or MTV, so they sort of made it big with him.I think bringing Saint aboard really gave them an edge this time around.

    If you pick apart the music, listening to the guitar riffs, the bass lines, the drum beats, and the subtle programming in the background, you will understand how hard 311 worked on this album.I really enjoy their lyrics, which are positive and inspiring, much like the words of an old friend.They keep me going when sometimes no other mediums can.There's a real connection I feel.I can only hope that they continue their musical journey and bring ear candy to all of their "enlightened ones" in the years to follow.It will be interesting to see where they go with their sound.With this band, so much is possible.

    4-0 out of 5 stars They should have just released the entire session.
    This album could have been a classic.

    The major flaws in this album are lyrics, and the duration of tracks. SA Martinez and Nick Hexum quite easily release the worst 311 lyrics on this album. The angst lyrics do not work for them.. especially not with the nasal SA voice.

    The sessions produced great outtakes like Bomb the Town, We Do It Like This, TWO GREAT songs that could have been intermissions, Dreamland and Will the World, and the acoustic I'll be Here Awhile would have made a nice bonus feature.

    The only real weak song on this album is Full Ride, other than that.. the highlights are the most melodic songs on the album. Sick Tight, and I Told Myself have nice chorus work, but the guitar work just seems rushed. However, this album does have a cohesiveness that brings it together. It's good work, but it could have been made so much better. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Why is Janet Jackson's Janet the best Michael Jackson album since Thriller and the best Madonna album since..., well, since ever? Perhaps it's because Michael's kid sister is the only one of these three aerobic video stars with enough smarts to realize that sex, hooks, and beats are all that matter in this field of lightweight dance pop. Or perhaps it's because the sexuality Janet radiates through her sweet melodies and hip-tugging grooves is so much more credible than Michael's arrested prepubescence or Madonna's nothing-personal-just-business comeons. After her embarrassing posture as a sociocultural analyst on 1989's Rhythm Nation 1814, Janet has returned to her strength--using her odd mix of girlishness and maturity to make dance numbers about personal relationships ring exceptionally true. Even so, the 75-minute, 27-track Janet doesn't really work as an album; there's too much filler and the between-song transitions quickly grow tiresome. The album is full of killer singles, though, starting with such proven cuts as the extremely slinky "That's the Way Love Goes" and rock-guitar-driven "If," and featuring such future hits as the Prince-like "This Time," the Motown-like "Because of Love," the breathy ballad "Where Are You Now" and the inspired Stax cover, "What'll I Do. --Geoffrey Himes ...

    GO JANET!

    5-0 out of 5 stars janet at her sexiest
    after coming out with the dance-charged but meaningful and political control and rhythm nation, janet had a musical makeover and a makeover in her image. She was more sexy, alluring, happy, and confident and the music and her music videos from this CD reflect that beautifully. The album starts with the morning interlude and the first single that's the way love goes that reminds you of the break of dawn on a beautiful morning with it's r&b/hip hop ballad uptempo groove. Then you want this is a song about janet teasing her lover and being charged with energy. If is one of the best masterpieces of janet's career with it's strings and wild grooves and singing raps, and yet so naughty, this song establishes her credibility as a diverse musical artist. This Time is a song about telling off a lover who cheated on her and further solidifys her credibility as a diverse musical artist, displayed with the opera vocals and broadway-tinged instruments. Throb is a europop inspired dance song made up of jazzy horns and sexual moans and its full of happy and sexual energy. What'll I Do is a rock piece with janet belting out strong vocals. Funky Big Band is a jazzy r&b and hip hop song with cute pianos and strong vocals but gets a little bit repetitive and drags on though still a nice song showing her musical diversity. New Agenda brings on the feminist side of janet showing pride in her African American roots and singing of oppression, her strongest vocals on the CD. Because of Love is a happy bouncy song of janet singing about a love, some may call the lyrics corny but it's such a happy song that you can't help but bounce to, there's a peacefulness about it. Again is a beautiful ballad that is one of janet's best with it's catchy and melodic piano hook and shimmering melody. Where Are You Now is a timeless classic ballad about janet wondering about a past lover, her vocals are so smooth and layered and you can feel the emotions. The Body that loves you is a filler song but is still soothing in it's own way. Anytime Anyplace is a very sexy ballad with a jazzy and r&b feel to it, the chorus has to be one of janet's best and the vocals are calm and smooth. Whoops Now is the 60's inspired bonus track on the album that has a vibe to it that makes you think of being silly and jumpy while having a good time, reflecting how close janet is with her dancers throughout the time of this album. Definitely recommended to fans of janet jackson and r&b fans looking for something with more substance than the material out there today. One look at janet may make one think janet is like every other r&b artist but janet dispells that perception on this musically diverse record that became her best selling album and is still on heavy rotation on my CD player.

    5-0 out of 5 stars janet, janet, janet
    this is THE BEST album that janet has ever made. i loooove all of the songs. the ones that truly stand out are "throb, if, where are you now, anytime anyplace, and because of love." i love the message that she sends in her song "new agenda." it talks about the struggle of being an african-american in today's society and how it's time for a change on how african-americans are treated. the song "throb" is the most sexual song on the cd, but it has a great dance beat. i love how she adds the saxophone and her moaning sounds. everyone should buy this album, especially hardcore janet fans like myself. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Quality
    I recently got this CD. When i first popped it in, i found it a little to un-pollished and raw. I didnt like at all. But i went back and made my self listen to it. Now i love this CD. The horn lines are infectouse and relevent, and nop superficial add-ons like LTJs more recent CDs. The songs that stick with me are Johny Quest Thinks We're Sellouts, Krazy Glue and automatic, one of my favourite songs now. I would urge everyone to get this disk

    4-0 out of 5 stars A very enjoyable title
    I think that Less Than Jake exhibits phenomenal brass workk in this album. In fact, i think it's there best in that regard. However, I don't give it five stars because the vocals are lacking in some songs and, in all honesty, can get annoying. But the intramentals really make up for it. The bass and ska guitar riffs are all catchy. But, like I said before, where this album shines is in its horns, as they create a really temendous sound unique to LTJ's sound. If you don't like traditional Ska, with it's blazng horns and fast beat rythum guitar, then you'll have a heard time getting into this CD. This is truely a CD for the lover of Ska not just "rockers", becuase they ultimately won't get it. I personally recomend this album for a the avid ska listener, and anyone who takes an interest in ska or skacore.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Breakout album
    This was Less than jake's breakout album in '97 when Ska took over the world for like 6 months. very cool if you like ska bands like reel big fish , buck-0-nine, aquabats, dance hall crashers. ... Read more
