Not my most favorite of Janet's stuff. But the photos of her are about worth the price of admission! ;-) If you want sexy music, then this is the cd for you.

"R&B Junkie,"
"Thinkin' Bout My Ex,"
"Slolove"

Janet's most underrated album + the Bonus Tracks make it eve
Lil' Radio | Chi-Town, Illinois | 08/20/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Of course the album sales didn't do so good (hint: the Superbowl) but any Janet fan knows that the CD is automatically going to have some sex jams and "baby-making" songs! In my opinion, this is one of the most underrated albums; there are so many great songs that the music critics overlooked due to the unfortunate incident that occured at the SB. There's only two songs that I do not deem iPod worthy; other than that, the album is great! Another great thing: with this edition, you get two bonus tracks! Here's the tracklist:
1. Looking For Love - Janet's usual interlude to kick off the album. The music is very nice as Janet speaks about looking for love.
2. Damita Jo - an okay track, but definitely not the best! Surrounded by hip-hop beats and old skool samples, Janet sings about her alter-ego, Damita Jo!
3. Sexhibition - a song with a sexy swagger! Of course, we all know what Janet's talking about! It has a nice hip-hop beat with a hint of African flavor.
4. Strawberry Bouce - very sexy song as Janet sings about a striptease! The song samples Jay-Z's Can I Get A... and has a nice bouncy beat!
5. My Baby - I couldn't get into this although many Janet fans love this song - it looks like I'm excluded from this list! It's a mid-tempo song with Kanye West rapping after the second chorus. I usually skip this - not iPod worthy.
6. The Islands - an interlude with Janet discussing what she loves about her favorite island.
7. Spending Time With You - a nice mid-tempo jam very reminiscent of Twenty Foreplay. Definitely iPod worthy
8. The Magic Hour - another interlude
9. Island Life - an okay song. I had to get used to it but I deem it iPod worthy.
10. All Nite (Don't Stop) - three words: This is sick!! An uptempo urban dance jam with a hypnotic beat! The music video is pretty cool with Janet and her dancers dancing in a warehouse during a blackout!
11. R&B Junkie - a dance jam that samples Evelyn King's I'm In Love. Janet takes it back old skool style!
12. I Want You - the first single in US! When I first heard this, I thought it was Michael Jackson singing it, but when I listened to it closely, I realized it was Janet! Another mid-tempo throwback as the song samples BT Express' version of (They Long to Be) Close To You.
13. Like You Don't Love Me - this has to be the worst track off the album. I usually skip it. Basically, it's another sex song that's pretty boring.
14. Thinkin' Bout My Ex - note: this song is not about Rene Elizondo Jr. because it was not written by Janet. The song is produced by Babyface (as you can hear his vocals in the background); the song has a nice R&B feel to it, but the lyrics are kinda repetitive.
15. Warmth - the first baby-making track as Janet sings about giving a guy a BJ! It's actually a pretty funny track as opposed to arousing.
16. Moist - Janet has dubbed both Track number 15 & 16 the oral suite. In this song, the guy returns the favor! It's actually a pretty decend stepping jam although the lyrics are...kinda out there!
17. It All Comes Down To Love - interlude
18. Truly - a nice change of pace. The song is very acoustic and melodic! I dub this song one of the standout tracks.
19. The One - very relaxing interlude
20. Slolove - one of my favorite jams! Another standout track which has a nice beat to dance to.
21. Country - interlude
22. Just A Little While - a rock/pop song that was an international hit (never released as a single in the US). The music video kinda sucks, but it's still another nice change of pace from the other tracks!
*Bonus Tracks*
23. I'm Here - a mid-tempo jam that definitely could've replaced My Baby! Janet sings about comforting her love interest and being there for him.
24. Put Your Hands On - another mid-tempo jam about sex (of course). This is another standout track with an intoxicating beat and melody!
Overall opinion: Although not her best, this album is highly underrated. The Japanese edition adds two standout bonus tracks that's definitely worth the extra money! My recommendation: go ahead and purchase - you won't be disappointed!
Extra note: From the Damita Jo Sessions, there have been some leaked tracks that definitely should've made the cut.
Put It On You - an uptempo dance track that's very catchy!
Love Me - it's supposed to be a remix version of Just A Little While. This version sounds completely different from JALW; it has a hip-hop/R&B dance beat!
Could This Be Love - a nice mid-tempo jam that I believe was supposed to be track 13.
Pops Up! - don't really care for the song + it's only 2 minutes long!
What Can I Say - a catchy hip-hop song.
