5.0 out of 5 stars Turned me into a Janet fan, 25 July 2002
This review is from: The Velvet Rope (Audio CD)
It's been several years since I bought this album. Every few months, it still gets stints in my CD player. There aren't many CDs that I can say that of; so many get confined to the rack solely to make my collection look bigger...
It starts off beautifully, a nice little prelude to set the scene and then straight into Velvet Rope, the title track. It's brimming with emotion. Vanessa May's violin solo is strong, elegant and very evocative.
There are many different styles touched upon. From sensual pop ballad to some real funk flavours but everything still feels very "Janet". She has such a distinctive style, not dis-similar to but far enough away from brother Michael.
The album as a whole is very erotic, giving what I think is a very touching insight to feminine sexuality. The production is just gorgeous, everything flowing very well from track to track. The short interludes throughout the piece break up the CD so it doesn't just feel like a selection of songs; it becomes a true musical work.
Indulge yourself. Put this on, turn up the volume, turn down the lights and pour yourself a generous measure of brandy. It'll be a treat.
