The Jacksons

Janet Jackson and Alan Jackson released new albums on the same day last week. In sadly unsurprising news, Janet's isn't the better of the two. (No, I didn't review them together; full review of Alan's coming soon, but I can tell you that it's real nice.)

I enjoyed your review, Thomas, but I have to say, I am definitely not with you about Janet overall. I just don't hear any of the "distinctive" personality you're talking about, in hardly any of her music (even the earlier stuff, which I once upon a time loved but have not felt anything for in nearly a decade). Quite the opposite from you, I would assume that it's her producers who have saved her from obscurity (er, that and the fact that she has this famous brother). I definitely prefer Rihanna, at least right now.

More interested in the other Jackson you mention. Know nothing much about Alan, but have loved "Chatahoochee" for a while now, ever since I woke up and realized its disco potential on various wedding dance floors.
