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...)
