Janet did, and she sets out in RHYTHM NATION to dish out a bit of "let's all work together for a better world and improve our way of life" type thing. This vein continues for a number of tracks, and admirable though it is, she sounds so much more convincing singing a good old-fashioned love song. The Jacksons were meant to dance, not to sermonize. That said, "Miss You Much", "Lonely" and "Come Back To Me:" are fabulous. Slick, sweet soul sung and played perfectly.

Love the Rhythm Nation!
Bought this album after hearing the title track once. Fell in love with all of the songs especially Miss You Much and Black Cat. The interludes and lyrical content are progressive and Janet knows whats up. This album holds up as well as it did in 1988! A classic.

Good, but pay to download the few good songs instead of buying whole CD
disappointed by all the "intro's" this album has, but Janet is Awesome,so I can't complain, will get more CD's to hear more of her upbeat songs.....
