Amazon.co.uk

Teaming with her most accomplished collaborators, producer-songwriters Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Janet Jackson delivers what is easily her finest record since Rhythm Nation--and arguably her best ever. Highlights include jams like "You" and "Got 'Til It's Gone", which recontextualises samples from War and Joni Mitchell, respectively; the funky memorial to a dear departed, "Together Again"; and a slinky cover of Rod Stewart's "Tonight's the Night". Best of all, though, is "What About." An accusatory throw-down for a lover who beats and cheats even as he professes his love, it swings angrily between tender quiet and raging bitter funk. --David Cantwell

This is seriously the greatest album EVER! From the opening title track which features a sample of Tubela Bells and violin supremo Vanessa Mae which is an epic of a song, to the closing track 'Special' a beautiful and spiritual song which is from the heart the album is just consistant in its excellence.
'You' is an original,gritty and funky song with Janet as you've never heard her before. 'Got 'Til it's Gone' featuring Joni Mitchell and Q-Tip is an instant classic and is one of the most original and best songs ever made. 'What About' is an extremely personal track dealing with domestic abuse, its sincere and very sad but an amazing and brave song. Other highlights include the bluesy 'I Get Lonely', the kinky 'Rope Burn' and the hidden track 'Can't Be Stopped' and the anthem 'Together Again'.
It's not the happiest album ever made -but- is the best album ever made...if your not really a Janet fan but your a little interested i can asure you this will be the best buy ever!

never has an album been so very entrancing on the first listen, at first i thought it would be similar in tone to Janet...it couldn't be more different.
here we are given a new Ms Jackson, one with power and elegance when she delivers such powerful vocals to eah meaningful lyric, she interweives political and taboo subjects between each song and even states her personal perspective to the album.
an artist has never been this rich in material for a while and now 12 years later many cannot manage to compare to the status and quality of The Velvet Rope.
it is bacause of this that she has managed to secure herself another album on my all time favourite list, but this is not 'another Janet album' it is deeper than that and also grittier too.
Madonna explored sexuality in her misjudged masterpiece Erotica 5 years prior, but Janet takes everything further and also in the song Free Xone she references to same sex relationships and takes on the homophobes(quite extraoridinary).
overall, this is one of the greatest gems of the 90's that still has an impact today much like that of Rhythm Nation 1814 and Control.
filled with R & B grooves like 'Janet.' inense dance beats like never before and with two years in production she has made an incredible triumph in music.
10/10

Definitely my favorite Janet Jackson cd. This is much funkier - more in line with the latest release from Whitney Houston and Lauryn Hill' debut. The beats on this cd are terrific and for the first time I have found a Janet Jackson cd that I can really recommend. There really are a number of great songs here - Got 'til it's Gone, What About, Go Deep - all of these songs have infectious beats that make you feel more energetic. I especially like Got 'til it's Gone because it features Q-Tip and Joni Mitchell which is a very unique combination of performers.

This album is the best,i honestly think there isnt a better rnb/pop album better then this.Every single song is fantastic from the funky "together again" and "go deep" to the slow "got til its gone".But the highlight of this album 4 me is the amazing "what about",probaly her most edgy and angry song shes done.....its amazing!!!BUY NOW!!!

Janet takes you on an adventure through her troubled times and happy times. We learn hoe Miss Jackson deals with problems that opress her. A very personal ablum. Features Q-tip in the huge hit single 'Got til it's gone' and with the mega hit 'Together again,' this is an ablum that you will not be able to take out from your CD player!

Even though this is an old album now, I felt the need to review it as one of my all time greatest albums, and with a lot to choose from I've had a bit of a list to go through.

After all these years this is an album I can still put on the player and love. I listen to it a good few times a year even now.

Yes some of the lyrics are explict but she only airs her views that a lot of people would be scared to admit to.

Musically the album is fantastic and has something for everyone. My favourite is 'What about' harsh subject, beautifully written. 'Together Again' is lovely and something everyone can relate to. The cover of Rod Stewarts' 'Tonights the Night' shows the song as a piece of song writing genius, having not been a fan of Mr Stewart before.

If you loved RN 1814 I think you just may like this one.
