All for You [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Tracy E. Hopkins
When your secret marriage fizzles into an impending million-dollar divorce in less than four years, you either sing the blues or round up the girlfriends and hit the clubs. Janet Jackson -- who split with longtime companion and creative collaborator Rene Elizondo in 1999 -- opts for the latter on All for You, her follow-up to 1997's Velvet Rope. She chirps the title track's sparkling dance pop over a piano-and-bass hook borrowed from Luther Vandross's "The Glow of Love" and is altogether in a sunnier mood. Save for the confessional ballad "Truth" "I'm not into pointing fingers, showing who's right and wrong" and the anger-fueled "Son of a Gun Betcha Think This Song ...

Barnes & Noble - Tracy E. Hopkins
When your secret marriage fizzles into an impending million-dollar divorce in less than four years, you either sing the blues or round up the girlfriends and hit the clubs. Janet Jackson -- who split with longtime companion and creative collaborator Rene Elizondo in 1999 -- opts for the latter on All for You, her follow-up to 1997's Velvet Rope. She chirps the title track's sparkling dance pop over a piano-and-bass hook borrowed from Luther Vandross's "The Glow of Love" and is altogether in a sunnier mood. Save for the confessional ballad "Truth" "I'm not into pointing fingers, showing who's right and wrong" and the anger-fueled "Son of a Gun Betcha Think This Song Is About You"-- on which Carly Simon reprises the chorus from her scorned-woman anthem "You're So Vain" and Jackson spews the F-word as she vents against greedy men who "try to have their cake and eat it too"-- the sexy singer takes the drama in stride. With the help of tried-and-true production by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis plus an assist from hip-hop beat maestro Rockwilder, Jackson doesn't miss a beat, shining on club-thumpers such as "You Ain't Right" and the operatic rocker "Trust a Try." And the young woman who once urged her lover to "wait a while" is ready to play the gay divorcée: She purrs about the joys of sex-for-one on the X-rated "Love Scene Oooh Baby" and the even more explicit "Would You Mind" let's just say she doesn't seem to mind much. Perhaps "Better Days" best sums up Jackson's new attitude. Musing first about her life's ups and downs over a poignant string arrangement, Jackson declares she's going to "leave old shit behind and move on with my life" as the song suddenly shifts into a sunny, acoustic guitar groove. Janet may have proclaimed that she was in Control back in 1986, but it wasn't until 2001 that she's come round to celebrating it -- on the charts, on the dance floor, and in real life.

    Explicit Content

    I used to like Janet Jackson, but now I just can't stand her. There are four sex songs, talking about what she does when in bed with her lover, and all the other ones just have curses and dumb stuff. I only like the dance tunes and the sweet ballads, but if you have any children, don't play this CD around them!

    This is great!

    This is a great Janet album. It just shows how much she has evolved since her last projct TVR. I love the fact that it is so happy and up. I am happy for her.

    A little Overrated

    Each of Ms. Jackson's albums seem to be progressing a step further toward the sexually primative. Okay, I admit it, the track on this album that saved the day was ''Son of a Gun.'' I like the fact that Ms. Jackson isn't afraid to experiment with the old and with the new. However, there's only so much that breasts and butt can sell...and she seems to be taking her new found sexual image to a new time low. (Literally speaking.) It seems she's trying to compensate a lackluster album by hyping up the skin factor, and turning up the heat a notch or two. There was one point in which I felt her voice was improving, but she sounds just as whiney and soft as ever on this album. She never had a strong voice, and definitely not as strong as her clevage. I prefer the Janet from the ''Control'' and ''Rhythm Nation'' days. The girl has come out, but it seems like she is BUSTIN' LOOSE, a little too loose for me. I think she needs to focus on new material, instead of wearing less material, if you know what I mean. She's too smart to be acting like an oversexed bimbo. I hope her next album has more substance.
