Basically this is the new veteran standard: Release an understated album to support a major tour. This album honestly gives me familiar feelings. She’s made a retrospective album with a lot of sounds similar to some of her previous work. The album’s theme is like getting a grateful hug from Queen Janet! So cheesy, but if you love Janet it is worth the commitment it takes to listen to the 17-track album. Janet has nothing to prove anymore. It’s almost like this album is asking you to prove something to yourself. Inspirations by Janet.
