"Damita Jo" is a diverse musical adventure, which features classic Janet hard-hitting dance grooves and sensual ballads, along with fresh ambient tones and guitar flavoured sounds. It's an album that is honest and about Janet, right now, in her moment. Janet teams up with long-time friends and producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis for several tracks on this album.

R & B Junkie -- VERY HOT, DANCY, OLD SKOOL TUNE
Slolove -- disco flavor, definite summer tune
All Nite/Don't Stop -- a club tune
Spending Time With You -- very romantic
Island Life -- peaceful, unwinding by the beach
I Want You -- retro r and b tune, excellent performance
Warmth -- Janet's most daring sex song ever. If you cannot stomach sexuality -- simply skip it, or buy the edited version.
Like YOu Don't Love Me -- an intense r/b song, with a funny, yet relevant, message (how to keep the "spark" in a relationship)
Thinking Bout My Ex -- not a standout, but a nicely delivered ballad
Damita JO -- a very catchy "personal" story - an introduction to Janet's alter ego, has words like "do you want me just for what you see? do you think that i'm the person you watch on tv?"
My Baby is a cute tribute to Janet's current partner, though I found the inclusion of "hot rapper of the moment" Kanye West a bit uncecessary (geared toward sales?)
I do not really care for most of the other "songs" -- many of which are really chatty interludes. Strawberry Bounce is targeting a teenage audience; the song lacks substance. Sexploration is growing on me, but it, like Straw. Bounce, is a teenybopper song. Moist seems like overkill given the inclusion of Warmth on the album, and Just A Little While just fails to excite me -- the rock inspired tune is a bit flat.
So, we have an album that looks like other "bestselling" albums. There are a lot of great songs, and a some that you would probably skip, depending on personal taste. The album explores a lot of musical styles -- but it is primarily dance/r & b oriented. If this is not your flavor, then the album might not be for you. But you should give it a listen and judge for yourself. So many external factors have shaped the way the public has received this album. After listening to this album several times, I can only say "buy it" and judge for yourself. You will not be disappointed. Damita JO is a great purchase.
