Miss Jackson If Ya Nasty. The Janet Discog Rate FRI 6PM EDT


Recommended Posts

IE2GlzL.png

 

Janet Jackson, Janet, or Miss Jackson if ya nasty... is the type of entertainer that only comes around once in a generation. The first paragraph of her Wikipedia page states, "she is noted for her sonically innovative, socially conscious and sexually provocative records, and elaborate stage shows," which is better than we could ever sum it up. Over the years, her music has meant so much to us, prompting us to ask questions about her, ask questions about the world, and even ask questions about ourselves. In this thread we will celebrate her career, her artistry, and most importantly, her everlasting and ongoing impact on many of us around the world. Although her discography might not be quite as extensive as her peers in volume (even in her heyday, she averaged about 3-4 years between album releases), she makes up for it in depth and importance.

At the forefront of everything Janet does is her music. As such, we will rating her entire discography, through which she's shown us she can embody many different things. After her debut in 1982, she progressed to her commercial breakthrough and artistic liberation with Control in 1986. She then released the socially conscious Rhythm Nation 1814 in 1989, and followed it up with the sexually awakened janet. in 1993. All facets of her artistry culminated in 1997 to produce the introspective and innovative The Velvet Rope. She saw continued success with All for You in 2001, which was followed by the sublime Damita Jo in 2004. Janet took a hiatus following 20 Y.O. and Discipline in the late 2000s, but returned to music in 2015 with Unbreakable, which showed yet another side to her. We will also be rating a vast miscellaneous section, featuring bonus tracks, b-sides, unreleased content, collaborations, and a few important remixes.

  • Rate every single song from 1-10. There are no exceptions, you must rate them all. Decimals are allowed and encouraged.
  • You may give THREE songs a score of 11, THREE songs a score of 10.5, THREE songs a score of 0.5, and THREE songs a score of 0.
  • PM your scores to me. Personally, I would strongly prefer (and recommend) that you copy and paste the list of songs into a Google Sheets document and post your scores in there. Then you can just provide me with the link in your PM.
  • Feel free to provide me with comments for any amount of songs (especially your highest and lowest scores). I will post them in the thread with the results.
  • Please listen to every song. Don't just give middling scores to the entire album/section you don't know as well because you are too lazy to listen and rate it. I will question you and/or reject your ballot if I suspect you didn't at least put in some effort to be fair.
  • NO SABOTAGE!
  • REGARDING SINGLES: Rate the version of the single you like the best! For example, if you like the single/video version of Black Cat better than the album version, please score it accordingly. I'm doing this so similar versions of the same songs don't get their high and low scores split between two different versions.
  • OPTIONAL: Include your top 5 interludes in Janet's discography in your PM.
  • Have fun and enjoy! I know a lot of us already know her discography pretty well, but if this is your first time, you're in for quite a ride!
