Barnes & Noble - Tracy E. Hopkins
When your secret marriage fizzles into an impending million-dollar divorce, 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 The 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 whose right and wrong" and the anger-fueled "Son of a Gun Betcha Think This Song is About You"-- on ...

Barnes & Noble - Tracy E. Hopkins
When your secret marriage fizzles into an impending million-dollar divorce, 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 The 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 whose 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 woman-scorned 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 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 single sex 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 bright, 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.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The Velvet Rope was a fairly bold move on Janet Jackson's part, as she got seriously sexy -- too serious, actually, since it had a fairly bitter tone, underscored by hints of perversity. Four years later, marked by one hidden marriage revealed through a divorce, Janet returned with All for You, an album that is as about sex as much as The Velvet Rope, yet there's a key difference -- it feels sexy, not pornographic. With her trusty collaborators Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis in tow, she's created a record that's luxurious and sensual, spreading leisurely over its 70 minutes, luring you in even when you know better. And there are certainly moments that make you wish you knew better. For one, it's plotted like The Velvet Rope, filled with skits and deliberately recalling the record with its obsession with flesh and how it builds on '70s soul and soft rock. This time around, instead of Joni Mitchell, she appropriates America's "Ventura Highway" for "Someone to Call My Lover," one of the record's best cuts, and "interpolates" Carly Simon's "You're So Vain" on "Son of a Gun," with Simon singing and...well, I guess you could call it rapping...right along. The twist is, this is an anti-music industry song and a particularly foul-mouthed entry on the album, sitting comfortably alongside another industry song, the slow groove "Truth." And that fills out the three main themes of the album -- divorce, industry, and sex -- with a little bit of love on the side. These keep things humming throughout this overly sultry, overlong album, which intrigues with its very texture even as it lulls at its length. After all, there's a lot to be said for texture, and All for You is alluring, easily enveloping the listener. Though it's hardly as explicit as The Velvet Rope, apart from a section where she proclaims "I just want to suck you, taste you, ride you, feel you, make you come -- come inside of me" mind you, this album did not have a parental advisory sticker on its first pressings, this is her sexiest-sounding record, thanks to Jam and Lewis' silky groove and her breathy delivery, two things that make the record palatable throughout too many spoken interludes and songs that just don't quite click. Even if there is a fair share of filler, this is hardly as strained as The Velvet Rope though in many respects, it's every bit as self-conscious, and there's an ease to its construction, topped off by such songs as "All for You" and "Doesn't Really Matter" that maintain Janet, Jam, and Lewis' reputation as the leading lights of contemporary urban soul. It'd be nicer if the album was leaner, concentrating on just the great songs, but indulgence is what this record encourages. Janet sprawls out throughout the album, indulging her whims, desires, and fantasies, but -- fortunately for us -- her indulgences are alluring in their self-absorption. Of course, it helps to have Jam and Lewis on your side to articulate your indulgence. [The DVD edition includes three remixes of "Son of a Gun" -- one featuring Missy Elliott, another featuring P. Diddy -- in the place of the pulled song "Would You Mind" and also includes a second 19-track disc of videos.]
Rolling Stone - Anthony DeCurtis
[three and a half stars]...All for You admittedly does not break much new ground, but it's just as fresh, familiar and appealing as you've come to expect from Jackson, and that's no small achievement.

    Janet Rocks!

    Janet Jackson changes every time she records a new album. This one is no exception. Great if you are in the car a lot to keep you awake and moving in your seat. Special bonus is the video CD included!

    Janet is my idol

    I love J. I have all of her albums, and I won't stop collecting her music until she stops making music, which won't be for a long time. I got this as a X-mas present, and I love it. This is a must have for all Janet Jackson fans.
