Product Description

Amazon.ca

Unlike those other members of her family, Janet Jackson's albums are still worth waiting for. The best parts of All for You, her first disc since 1997's The Velvet Rope, continue to display the first-class pop-R&B talent who broke through decisively in the mid-'80s with "What Have You Done for Me Lately" and "Nasty." Jackson's longtime cohorts Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis are of course on board, and the production-writing trio demonstrates its mastery of everything from dirty funk ("You Ain't Right") to peppy, radio-perfect ("Come on Get Up" and 2000's No. 1 "Doesn't Really Matter") and hypnotically undulating sounds ("When We Oooo"). While much of All for You is irresistible, its handful of failures are poorly conceived and executed. Most glaring among these is "Son of a Gun (I Betcha Think This Song Is About You)," an unlistenable sequel to Rope's "Got 'Til It's Gone" that substitutes one self-regarding singer-songwriter diva (Carly Simon) for another (Joni Mitchell), thereby wrecking Simon's one golden moment, "You're So Vain." "Son of a Gun" and "Truth" apparently target estranged husband Rene Elizondo, but Jackson is hardly as convincing a revenge artist as she is a sex kitten. In fact, the likes of "Love Scene (Ooh Baby)" and "Would You Mind" out-spice even the carnally obsessed Velvet Rope and Janet. --Rickey Wright

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated CD July 13 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is actually the first Janet album I ever bought. I loved it when I first got it and I just listened to it again and I still love it. It's better than Damita Jo (which is good but not as good as this). What I like here is that Janet is vocally and lyrically confident throughout the entire album. She isn't afraid to have some pretty filthy songs on her album (just listen to "Would You Mind" for an example). She's a grown woman and she can sing about whatever she wants to sing about. I could have done without the interludes, but they don't take away from how good this album is.
1)Intro
2)You Ain't Right: Janet sounds great here, very strong and confident.
3)All For You: overplayed, but still good.
4)2WayForYou: an interlude.
5)Come On Get Up: pretty good song.
6)When We Oooo: the first of a string of very sexual songs. Very good song.
7)China Love: another good song.
8)Love Scene (Ooh Baby): I like the beat of the song. The chorus is simple but effective.
9)Would You Mind: the dirtiest song on here. I couldn't believe some of the lyrics. One of the best songs here.
10)Lame: interlude
11)Trust a Try: Janet piles several styles of music into this song and the result is a great song.
12)Clouds: interlude
13)Son of a Gun: people seem to really hate this song. I love it. Janet sounds just as good at singing about her vengeful side as she does her sexual side.
14)Truth: very good song. A little slow, but the lyrics are terrific.
15)Theory: interlude
16)Someone To Call My Lover: an overplayed song, but Janet sounds so breezy and hopeful it's possible to overlook that.
17)Feels So Right: good love song. The lyrics are good.
18)Doesn't Really Matter: weird changes were made to this song.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Album But Something Is Missing... July 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
While this album is geniunely a good album and it introduced Janet to a new world of fans for its time, you can tell that after all she had went through with Rene and whatnot that things had changed. For the first time, Janet sounded uninspiring. But I really feel like it's taken her a while to really get into her new groove. No beef because Janet truly is a sexy woman and she's allowed to sing about it if she wants to but at the same time, I think she could've toned it down a bit but then again, she was 35 at the time and she could make her own decisions so who am I to say she can't express herself? Also I think that Janet wanted her commercial lustre back after "The Velvet Rope" was overlooked despite its success and yet after all that had happened in 2001 and 2002, it fell behind. But possibly the title track was her greatest track since the "Janet" days and also quite annoying since it was played to death in '01. And however, Janet still had bright spots in this album. I can say that Janet's eight-album career is just wonderful to look back on and while it pales with her last four albums and Janet's latest, Damita Jo, this truly will go down as one of this star's best albums in her 2-decade career. It was all about her and her coming out and who can blame the woman for wanting to experience the single life for a short time?

3.0 out of 5 stars Kind of Bland June 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
Don't get me wrong, there are some good grooves on here, good dance music. My personal favorites are Doesn't Really Matter, China Love, Someone to Call my Lover and Better Days. There are also several really silly interludes that could have been left out. The songs that really turn me off are Son of a Gun and Come on Get Up which is really boring. I know that Janet uses her music to express what she is feeling inside and she used this album to let the world know just how she feels about her ex-husband (she hates him) and those songs in particular really suck. There's this annoying interlude with Carly Simon, where they're talking about clouds in her coffee or something to that effect. It's terrible. I liked certain songs on here but I think the interludes messed it up for me. Actually the remix of Son of a Gun done by Puff Daddy which includes a rap by Missy Elliot is a better version of the song. I think this album is meant for her die hard fans because I don't think I'd recommend just an average listener to get this one. Damito Jo is much better, Velvet Rope is a little risky but has better music to me.

2.0 out of 5 stars Janet hits a dead end on here! May 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album was a major dissapointment on so many levels. After such a great CD like "The Velvet Rope", AFY looking at it now, marked the beginning of the end for Janet's music.
Many of these songs are just plain drab and are forgettable. The exceptions are the title track which is really a fun dance song, "Trust A Try" and "Truth" and the closing track "Better Days". The rest of this album doesn't fare well though.
The middle part of this album is just awful and feels more like spoken softcore material than a music CD! "Would You Mind" is just plain stupid, even by teen pop standards. The interludes also are completely messy as well.
As bad as it is, this album almost sounds like a gem compared to it's horrible follow up "Damita Jo".
Looking at it now, I hate to say it but this album marked Janet's decline into blandness that has hit rock bottom with it's following disaster "Damita Jo". Stick with your older Janet albums.
