    Janet is incredible. She had an incredible run of four consecutive great albums from Control to Velvet Rope. Similar to Michael's run from Off The Wall to Dangerous.

    My top five favourite songs are:
    1) Together Again
    2) Again
    3) If
    4) Control
    5) Love Will Never Do Without You

    Amazing that only 2 years later Control was to hit & go so massive...I guess that college stuff she talked about in the clip never happened!

    Always kind of liked Janet, but just now getting into her music and learning about how her first 5 studio albums were all mega platinum smashes, but she has been blacklisted by the Viacom group and everything else because of the Superbowl titty accident. So harsh.
    I love a lot of her songs with a bias on the Control to Design of a Decade era.

    Favourites right now include Runaway, Thats the way love goes, Nasty Boys, Together Again, Diamonds and Love will never do without you. I only one of her greatest hits albums and RN 1814. But its a good enough start.

    I agree, I am also going to buy Control and The Velvet Rope as it seems those 4 albums are untouchable.
