The Velvet Rope by Janet Jackson

Ordinarily, I would shy away from this album. Firstly, it’s long, and secondly it has all those pesky interludes in there. But you know what? I really liked it, despite both of those things! The length didn’t feel too onerous which means the songs flowed well and were never dull. And the interludes worked, rather than being a distraction they were an enhancement.
