    A Fine Comeback

    Four and a half stars. Janet makes me smile. I've been a Janet fan all my life and I always eagerly await every album. A Janet album release day is like a holiday for me. Unbreakable was a seven year wait and it was painful. But now the world knows what Janet's been thinking since Discipline and it's certainly a marked improvement over that album. Whereas Discipline was very sexually-charged, Unbreakable does a 180. Janet has toned it down but she hasn't lost her voice, as Unbreakable channels some of the best aspects of former albums. "Dammn Baby", "No Sleeep" and "Take Me Away" sound like they could have been cuts from janet.. "Burnitup!" and "2 B Loved" could have been on All For You. "Unbreakable", "The Great Forever", "After You Fall" and "Broken Hearts Heal" would have fit in on The Velvet Rope. There are even tracks with socially-conscious messages - "Shoulda Known Better" and "Black Eagle" - that may remind you of Rhythm Nation era Janet. "Black Eagle" is unlike anything Janet has recorded before (in my opinion) with a neo-soul- Erykah Badu vibe. It's hypnotic. "Dammn Baby" is a laid-back dance track with a fantastic bass line that will make you hit repeat multiple times. "The Great Forever" is Janet at her breaking point, singing with a sassiness and conviction we haven't heard since the '90's. The album has low points too. "Lessons Learned", "Well Traveled" and "Gon' B Alright" stumble, but still feel fresh in an experimental way. If you are considering buying this album, do it. In a world of raunchy, entitled pop stars, Unbreakable reminds us that great Pop/R&B music doesn't have to be shocking or explicit. ON REPEAT: "Dammn Baby", "The Great Forever", "Night", "2 B Loved", "Black Eagle"

    Ms. Jackson Is Back With A Vengeance!

    I didn't know if she could pull it off, but this time, Ms. Jackson fires a salvo and causes a five-alarm fire! Think of this CD as a kind of part 2, of her 1993 "janet." CD. So that means love and sexuality, social awareness, and another twangy, early 1970's flavored song ("Gon' B Alright") like "What'll I Do" was from that earlier masterpiece. Even her interludes this time are brillant; giving a feeling of coming over to her and her new husband's house and really talking about how things have been with her. And best of all, it returns her to the songwriting and producing team of Terry Lewis and James Harris III, which has almost always given her strength. But the 'salvo' is that all of this R&B and dance goodness is on her own label! Rythym Nation Records (in association with the newly free of Sony Music, BMG Distribution). She now joins a very elite group of women who have their own label. Wow! Oh, and in case you were wondering, her voice and her beauty have never been in better shape! "Broken Hearts Heal", "Night", "Take Me Away", "Lessons Learned", & "Black Eagle" are all songs that proved that to me. Cool, sophisticated, sexy, warm. That's how I'd describe "Unbreakable".

    Funkier than expected

    I found the album was a mix of pop eras. There are songs that remind me of late 70 disco to 90's pop I feel like she reached back on this album. I don't think the funky disco tunes suit her. I'm used to a more aggressive pop music Janet. I really enjoyed it though as a whole. There are not a lot of stand out songs that I want to hear over and over again on repeat. It was good but perhaps I was expecting a great album. As a life long fan of the artist I'm used to her progressing musically in her genre and I just didn't feel like a got anything new from her on this one. If you like Janet you will like this album however I'm not so sure if your a new fan. You should listen before you buy on this one if your a new fan.

    Return to Form

    Teaming back up with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis was definitely what Janet needed to get back on track. This is a very strong album and though it won't be popular in the way her 80's and 90's albums were that is a sign of the times and not the quality of the work. There are some stellar singles here but this is one that it is best to listen to in sequence. My only issue with it is the fact that she has never sounded more like Michael and that takes some getting used to but you eventually do.

    This would be an excellent album if this was a Madonna project. But this is Janet and with a return to the Jam and Lewis production team, along with the lead single No Sleep, it lead me to believe I was getting a R&B album tinged with that Janet style of Pop. But this is basically an 80% Pop album. But it sounds great and is worth the purchase. By the way, don't miss the incredible Unbreakable tour.

    Janet is Unbreakable indeed

    Unbreakable is the best album of 2015. Janet's lyrics are heartfelt and deeply moving and they take you on quite a journey. There are so many standout tracks and it's one of those rare albums that you can play start to finish without skipping a track. Absolutely no filler. It's worth noting that No Sleeep has logged more than 10 weeks at #1 on the R&B/Urban adult charts.

    I used to be a HUGE Janet fan. Loved her music in the late 80s, the 90s and early 2000s. Never missed her concerts when she came to our area. I just couldn't get into this album. I had purchased tickets for her most recent tour, but after it was post-poned twice (2nd time indefinitely), I got my money back. The Janet of today isn't anything like she used to be. Disappointed.

    I glad I purchased this CD. I think this effort is one her best cds since the "All For You" cd. She is also sounding more like her brother Michael in some of the songs. I don't know it that's intentional or not, but I like. One of my favorite songs is Burn It Up (featuring Missy Elliott). It's one of her signature dance grooves. Another one is "Broken Hearts Heals Stronger"...a good ballad.
