label: Virgin Records
our score: 1.5 out of 5.0
a Massachusetts native, I must remind all that (considering all
the attention that “Nipplegate” is getting), the New
England Patriots won the game, a fact that will be forever be
overshadowed by the Jackson/Timberlake PR stunt (and for the record…no
one is buying the lame “malfunction” excuse).
must have been listening to Damita Jo during rehearsals
for the infamous halftime show and, realizing how lame it was,
thought that a “nipple slip” would boost record sales
(and this weeks number show that she was wrong), as it sure won’t
on merit alone.
little more than expanding on her oversexed confessions on 2001’s
All For You,” Damita Jo has Janet coming off almost
nympho-like with some really ambiguous titles as “Sexhibition,”
"All Nite (Don't Stop),” and “Moist.”
Hey, do you think that Janet really likes sex?
CD does have some bright spots, as “All Nite (Don't Stop)"
has a certain funk/jazz energy to it that works and as does "R&B
Junkie." But, too much tempo-less filler as "Spending
Time With You," "I Want You," and "Looking
for Love" are just plain tedious.
this really the same girl who gave us such groundbreaking work
as Control, Rhythm Nation 1814 and
The Velvet Rope?
did Janet get so uninteresting? Maybe she was asking herself that
same question when she was buttoning up her break-away halter
liked Damita Jo...
