Janet Jackson - All For You 2LP


All For You (2001) was a well-timed aging-up album for Janet Jackson. Demons conquered, a smiling and happy Janet beams from its cover and the lighter pop side in her nature simply resonates throughout. Keeping to her conceptual structure Jackson has a whole lot of fun here on "Come On Get Up," the liberated "Son of a Gun (I Betcha Think This Song Is About You)" and "Someone To Call My Lover" – the latter two featuring samples of Carly Simon and America respectively while Missy Elliott and P. Diddy are amongst the guests on an album that has a clean and dirty side. Now thirty-five Jackson was hitting peak form and sounds utterly on top of her craft here.
