Preview Janet’s ‘Discipline’

Published: Sunday 17th Feb 2008 by Sam
With the release of Janet Jackson’s latest album ‘Discipline’ drawing ever-nearer, it’s now possible to preview the whole CD via Amazon.com. Whilst it’s most logical to pass judgement upon hearing the full CD, it does give a pretty good idea as to how the album will sound. I’m liking what I hear – a lot.

What do you think of the preview?

    this album does nothing for me. it sounds as if she is whispering or whimpering. more like she is freezing and trying to sing.

    This album is a huge disappointment. 2Nite is the only song that holds my attention for longer than 30 seconds (Apart from Feedback, of course – the album’s finest moment by far) Discipline is just as mediocre as 20YO tbh. Time to retire, methinks.

    “2Nite is the only song that holds my attention for longer than 30 seconds”

    Well, that would be hard to do considering they are only 30 second clips *shaking my head*

    I know it’s really hard to judge an album by 30 second clips. I actually liked what I heard. But that makes me nervous because I have NEVER EVER liked a Janet album on first listen except “Rhythm Nation”. They always have to grow on me. We’ll see…

    Very disappointed. I thought they’d be original, unique sounding like Feedback, Luv and Rock with you. Plus lately the artists only seem to have ten songs. I thought she’d put out loads, instead it’s like Ashanti’s with all her skits. There’s only 13 actual tracks on here and only the three I’ve already mentioned are good.

    You’re right that you can’t tell from 30sec clips, I learnt that lesson last year.

    Anyway, thanks for posting! I would’ve gone out and bought it but you saved me the money.

    I don’t know but I feel something misses the mark with this album . I feel like this is not the best Janet. I think Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis are missed on this album.They truly bring out the best in her musically & lyrically.

    Some of the songs I liked but most of them I didn’t. But when she goes on tour and tapes her live concert Dvd I will probably buy it considering I like her dancing over her singing but I will not be purchasing her cd. Just keeping it real.

    Bring on the New Madonna.

    Discipline didn’t cease to amaze me like I hoped and thought it would. Janet just can’t seem to get it like she did on ‘Rhythm Nation’ on of the greatest albums of all time.

    Lool I don’t know what u were expecting but i think Janet reached the same level she was years ago…LUV is my fav track on the album n by what i’v listened to “Never letchu go” n “greatest X” she’s got some good slow jams…i like the album n i’m gonna buy it…n i even think Janet has probably better songs than Mariah…somethin first i couldn’t even imagine but now…i’m really disapointd with her…

    30 sec is not the whole song this ablum has great potential to be the biggest of 2008. I want to hear more. and cant wait til the ablum comes out. anyone that says their not gonna buy based off 30 sec wasn’t gonna buy in the first dam place. 30 sec is not the way people can judge if the album is good. she is getteing rave reviews for this ablum all across the board , I mean reviews as high as her past albums from the same people that panned her last 2 albums so get the ablum it’ s janet time.

    I THINK THE ANNONIMOUS USER DELIBRATELY KEPT COMMING ON HERE TO H8 ON JANET BUT ITS COOL BECUASE DISCIPLINE IS GONNA SHOW EVERYBODY WHY TERE ARE SO MANY DIET VERSIONS OF HER OUT HERE TRYING TO “REPLACE” HER OR “FILL HER SHOES” SORRY BUT NOBODY HAS THAT MUCH PRESERVERENCE AND UNIQUE SIGNATURE ABOUT THEM AND SHE COULD NEVER BE REPLACED. HER SHOES COULD NEVER BE FITTED. HER TALENT CANNOT BE DENYIED REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOU THINK HER TALENT IS. AND HER MUSICAL INFLUENCE ON EVERY FEMALE ARTIST THAT CAME OUT SINCE 1990 CANNOT BE IGNORED!!! STOP HATING ON SOMETHING THAT YOU LIKE, TAKE FOR INSTANCE YOU LIKE RIHHANNA BUT YOU H8 JANET, THAT STATMENT IS RETARTED BECUASE THE VERY THING THAT GOT YOU LIKING HER STARTED WITH JANET AND IS MOST LIKELY SUMTHING JANETS DONE BEFORE!!!

    This is a mess just like all the other albums. I like Feedback and Luv. She can stick the other songs up her ass.

    well i have 6 songs from her album on my laptop, and i will say that if u listen 2 the songs n full, u’ll definitely feel differently about them. when i heard the snippets i wasn’t really n2 it, but this is what i say now…

    “Rollercoaster” is a hot song. i was so glad that she’s singin out now! it actually mad me smile! her ad-libs @ da end of da track has her actually singin her b*** off… 4 a Janet track that is. and i was impressed. she should definitely sing like this more often. its a hot beat as well
    10/10

    “Luv” is already a familiar song. not much 2 say about the track. hot beat, great whispery vocals, and very catchy.
    9.5/10

    “So Much Betta” is along the lines of a Britney “Blackout” track. its definitely a different sound 4 her. afta listenin 2 the song the first, u’ll find urself noddin ur head 2 the robotic chorus, which really goes well w/ the song. i definitely luv how the bridge changes the beat a lil bit.
    7.5/10

    “The 1 ft. Missy” was a track when i listed 2 the snippet on Amazon. i think da beat is very reminiscint of Amerie’s “1 Thing.” Missy’s lyrics r a lil nasty(threesomes, nookie), while Janet is b’n s*** w/out b’n raunchy @ all… very rare 4 her. but they make 4 a gud collabo. i can c this b’n a hot video and a great dance performance 4 Janet. The hook is very catchy as well
    8.75/10

    “2Nite” is my least favorite track. i hated it with the Amazon snippet, but i appreciate more w/ the full length version. i think its kind of a throwback JACKSON (especially Michael during the break of the song w/ all of her “c’mon’s” and “baby’s”) record, while blending the new electronica thats becoming pretty big around the world. definitely won’t b a single, but a very listenable track.
    6.5/10

    “Greatest X” is a nice lil ballad-like beat. honestly, i think it would have been better w/ a much stronger voice. Janet’s thin vocals arent that bad tho. and the chorus is pretty decent… lyrically. won’t b a single, but its pretty gud
    6/10

    overall: 8/10

    The album sounds incredible, and I will cop that disc as soon as it drops!! I also still feel that 20 Y.O. and Damita Jo were great and I keep them in constant rotation.
