janet jackson’s discipline – out today!


hey hey! did anyone else manage to pick up janet jackson‘s new album discipline today? i do love ms. jackson – overall it’s not bad – there are a number of great tracks (2nite, the 1, so much betta, can’t b good) but it feels slightly recycled – there’s eight interludes and fourteen songs (i say retire interludes all together – they really break up the flow of an album – if there has to be a compromise i suggest doing an intro and outro which would be far less distracting) i can say i’ve never disliked a janet album – however i wish she would switch up her whole vibe a bit and do a little re-inventing – it’s still all about dimming the lights & sexy time! (i want a really solid full on dance album from her some point down the road…)



i don’t want to compare her to madonna but i will anyway…at least madge (who will be inducted into the rock & roll hall of fame by justin timberlake) switches it up (i’m not a crazy madonna fan btw – i do think she’s incredible but i’m not a diehard) her last album confessions on a dance floor was sheer pop/dance brilliance!
yet her upcoming release hard candy (the boring (IMHO) title was just announced today) has me slightly worried – i think it’ll be very tough to outdo her last outing – we’ll know soon enough on april 29th (probably before…i’m sure it’ll leak)



back to janet – her two singles feedback (catch her performance on ‘good morning america’ below) & rock with u are kick-ass tracks – i was totally blasting ms. jackson in the car this evening – i didn’t want to write a negative review of discipline at all – i do really like it – we’re talking janet (ms. jackson if you’re nasty) she’s a legendary pop icon and can basically do no wrong – it’d just be great to see her break out of her mold – there’s plenty of time – she’s only almost forty-two (madonna turns fifty in august!) popbytes over & out for tonight…xxoo!

    The only thing worse than Janet Jackson coming out with a new album would be Paula Abdul doing the same.
    Oh wait, she did. Never mind.
