the best album you'll EVER buy!,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Velvet Rope (Audio CD)
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!
