Those were the words that little Miss Jackson finally uttered out after so many years of her father,Joe Jackson,ruling her with an iron fist.But,let's go back a little.Before this breakthrough classic came out,Janet previously released two well...mediocre albums that just showed Janet as a cutesy,bubblegum type of girl,all because everyone wanted her to...but she didn't want to.Well,just like every other teenage girl would,Janet finally stood up and said "I'm not taking this anymore",with the help of veteran producers Jimmy Jam&Terry Lewis.So,Janet went out on her own and made an album on her grounds...and she made musical history with "Control".First and foremost,this album is definitely good for anyone who feels like they have been controlled all their lives,and want to dance to some damn catchy songs while they're at it.Some of the best "Declaration Of Independnce" and "I'm am woman,hear me roar!" tracks on this album are the hard-hitting title track,the mega hit "Nasty",and the question every girlfriend wants to know:"What Have You Done For Me Lately?".But,this is a great album for anyone who is in a relationship,too,examples being the ode to slowing it down "Let's Wait Awhile" and the terribly sad "He Doesn't Know I'm Alive".And,of course,the producing,just like every other Janet album to come:5.5/5 stars.Mostly because the beats are so easy to remember and are so fun to dance to.And Janet's voice may not be the best,but it's so sweet and so loveable that you'll enjoy hearing her sing as well.
The only bad thing about this CD is that there are only 9 songs,and most of them are singles,anyway!But,9 songs is still good in this landmark album.
The Verdict:The Album That Put Janet On The Map And The Album That Made Her Janet,And Not Just Michael Jackson's Sister.He ll,I Even Forgot They Were Related A Few Times!
