"Free at last / Out here on my own," Janet Jackson sings on the title track of her 1986 blockbuster, Control, an album about personal liberation, romantic longing, and, of all things, sexual responsibility. After two albums of middling dance-pop that were comfortably in the Jackson family mold, Janet dropped in on the burgeoning Minneapolis funk factory of producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and came up with five top 10 hits, including the opening triad of "Control," "Nasty," and "What Have You Done for Me Lately," as well as the yearning "When I Think of You" and "Let's Wait Awhile," that rare song (considering some of Janet's hits to come) about not having sex. In its own way, Control is the most convincing declaration of artistic independence since Stevie Wonder's "Music of My Mind." --Daniel Durchholz

i have only recently purchased this album from Amazon and i needed to put my views on here.
I LOVE IT!!! i always admired Janet Jackson but it wasn't until recently that i though i'd purchase a few of her albums...i am very glad i started with Control...it is now one of my favourite albums most definately.
it is influential in many ways by incorporating a fresh new style in the dance r&b genre, with fantastic addictive lyrics and beats while the songs are always so immortal and groovy.
personally i already feel that this is one of her greatest albums in terms of production and influence on culture , plus it includes the majority of her greatest singles.
all 9 songs a innovative and addictive and in comparison to her Brother MJ's Thriller, Control is just as inspirational and pouring with hits.
this is a must for everyone!!

Just when it seemed like Janet's musical career was never going to take off, out popped `Control' a crucial success, as well as signalling Janet's new found independence. Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis were recruited to produce this album, and blimey did they do a good job.Read more ›

I liked Janet Jackson's style and music when she first started out. In fact, she was my favourite of 'The Jackson Family' back then. I loved all her Singles, and I bought this, her first Album and thought it was great. I then bought her second as it came out: 'Rhythm Nation' - thought that was pretty good too - but not so great, and then finally, when reaching 'Janet' - her third, that, I liked a little less still... I decided then I didn't like the direction she was taking after this, and have not purchased any of her work since. The 'Janet' Album did give a couple of really cool Singles: 'That's The Way Love Goes' and 'Again', but I wasn't too keen on the actual Album material. Ironically (for me at least) it did give her a Number One in the Albums Chart, yet her best effort in my opinion 'Control', this one; only peaked at Number Eight, and only then on its 're-entry', astonishingly only having got to Number Fifteen first time around!!

This debut was great though! It features all her first FIVE hit Singles she had at the time, and with quality Tracks like; 'When I Think Of You', 'He Doesn't Know I'm Alive' (and we've all been there!) and 'Let's Wait Awhile'; this Album became a 'classic' for me and could not go wrong.

A great sound captured from a quarter of a century ago! (seems hard to believe really...)
