  1. Jackson wouldn’t want us to call it a comeback, but it sure sounds like one.
  2. Discipline is the most cohesive deep-groove album from La Jackson since "Control."
  3. The likes of 'Never Letchu Go' (a sweet, glistening ballad), 'Luv' (carrying a brisk, feel-good clap-and-bounce), 'Rollercoaster' (suitably jittery and giddy), and 'Can't B Good' are as innocent, universal, and inviting as anything else in Janet's past.
  4. Discipline, is nowhere near the high point of her career, but it is better than its predecessor.
  5. On Discipline, Janet sounds part nympho, part aging diva trying to keep up with her would be replacements. It works on some songs, but fails miserably on most.
  6. Despite a couple of promising tracks the music generally befits the absurd lyrics.... Dupri, Ne-Yo, Rodney Jerkins, The-Dream, and StarGate often drown out Jackson's breathy vocals with soulless beats.
  7. When juxtaposed with the album's bubble-gum bounce, the creepy parts just seem creepier.
