Janet returns to her Rhythm Nation roots with Discipline, a dance-driven disc that's sure to please her core fan base and attract new listeners. The lead single, "Feedback," showcases the record's frenetic pace -- however, the 22-track disc has even hotter songs in store, including "Rock with U" and "So Much Betta."

Omg Janet what the heck is this , This album blows , Your All for you was the good record after that you went down hill. I love Feedback it's decent but the rest is Crap sorry Janet fans but you might wanna skip this album due to its sounds the songs sound the same and Save you money!
I never bought any of Janet's cds, I just waited for the single to come out. I wanted to buy it because I love Feedback, Luv, and Rock With U. The-Dream and Ne-yo wrote a couple of songs on here which I love. She doesn't disappoint on this CD. I even like the interludes. My favorites are Feedback, Luv, Rollercoaster, Rock With U, 2nite, Greatest X, So Much Better, The 1, What's Your Name, Discipline, and Curtains. So I guess all of them!
Damita Jo was an artistic catastrophe. 20 Y.O. was better musically, but a marketing and conceptual nightmare, what with it's cheesy make your own cover contest and an attempt to regain relevance based only on her past achievements. NOW, Janet has decided that she wants to acheive much much more on Discipline, her near perfect 10th studio album. This is the first time in many years I listen and feel that Janet has really put herself foward. Highlights are the smoothed out Rollercoaster, R&B pop delight LUV, funky So Much Betta, and the albums title track which be her steamiest song yet without getting too overt. It has been said before, but this time, Janet is REALLY back!
The album we've all been waiting for from Miss Jackson. Contains slinky dance tracks and smooth mid-tempo grooves. Best Bets: "Rollercoaster" "Rock With U" "Never Letchu Go" and "Can't B Good"
For those who were underwhelmed by Janet's previous two efforts, fear not. The third time is definitely a charm on Ms. Jackson's latest. Janet has gone back to her pop/dance that made her a star and she's made a killer album in the process. "Feedback" is totally fresh and funky, while "Can't B Good" is littered with sweet harmonies over a soft piano line. "Rock With U" has an inescapable groove and "2Nite" is her best dance anthem since "Together Again." Perhaps the real treat here is the title track, which rivals "Anytime, Anyplace" as Janet's steamiest song ever. A pleasure from start to finish.
I LOVE this album!!!!!!!!!!!! It is so Janet. A real banger. She is back to being herself and she's happy again. YEAH!!!! Nice grooves and great collabo with Missy. Don't like the interludes. Title track is super sexy and really makes you want to get it on!!!!
This is the original that everyone loves!!! Omg I love every song on here. You can dance to every song or just kicked back and listen to her soft voice. Don't listen to the other person who said it was horrible if you listen to the full version you'll fall in love with it. And i'm not even a big janet fan. GO JANET!!!!
...But she still has it, as evidenced by her first GREAT release in many many years, DISCIPLINE. This is more on par with the JANET album than any of her other albums, because it is packed with pure jams! It is very difficult to determine what my favorite songs are because there are so many! So Much Betta, LUV, 2Nite, Rollercoaster, The 1, and the singles Feedback and Rock With U are all stellar quality jams. It is the track Discipline, though, that is the best on the album and easily her best slow jam to date. Steamy and playful, but not overtly nasty, this will be the big hit of the album!
I still love Janet Jackson's new album, Discipline! Very fun and danceable album, especially back-to-back slamming numbers of Feedback, Luv, Rollercoaster, Rock Wit U, and 2Nite. The ballads are smooth, such as Can't Be Good and Discipline. And I like that she's great on an album without longtime producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. Producers like Rodney Jerkins, Jermaine Dupri, Stargate, Ne-Yo, the Dream and others gave her some solid songs! They stayed out of the way and let Janet be Janet on her album. It's very high energy most of the time on here. One of her best since Janet and Velvet Rope in the '90s.
