EDITORS’ NOTES

The second album from a teenage Janet Jackson, released in the wake of Thriller, combines the urban electro-funk sound of the era with an angelic, fresh-faced pop sensibility. Janet's soft, flirty voice pulses in rhythmic interplay with funky '80s R&B synths; the throbbing "Pretty Boy," produced by Minneapolis funk master Jesse Johnson, is a particular showstopper. Don't miss a cameo from Michael, providing falsetto backing vocals on the joyous "All My Love to You," one of two tracks produced by big brother Marlon.
