Janet Jackson, "Rhythm Nation 1814" / 1989 Review by: Peter Ostmann
This album is darker (not only in terms of its cover) than its predecessor, "Control," but that's a strength of the album, which includes a number of top five hits, among them the oft-heard "Miss You Much," the heavy "Black Cat" and the lighter "Escapade." This is another of the albums that are worth hearing from beginning to end because all the songs fit in so well with each other - although it's not a concept album. If you enjoy the album, check out the related half-hour TV special which is available on video.

8.5 out of 10.
