  1. At 22 tracks, Discipline is anything but disciplined, but it's also Janet's most cohesive album in a while.
  2. Discipline, is nowhere near the high point of her career, but it is better than its predecessor.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Jackson's decision to recycle the nympho routine one more time is just boring.
  6. 'Can't B Good' is completely lovely; the rest are unmemorable.
  7. Seriously, Ms Jackson, I invite you around for high tea and you turn up leather clad, groaning, and hollering about touching yourself. Mrs Wilberforce didn’t know where to look and the vicar was most upset.

    Janet Jackson tries to have a great album like "Control", but she just arrived to the toes of "Control"!! This album has good songs like Janet Jackson tries to have a great album like "Control", but she just arrived to the toes of "Control"!! This album has good songs like "Feedback", but moaning and masturbating is not so good for an artist. Full Review »

    Don't get me wrong, i do love Janet , I've been a fan of hers for 10 years and have all but one of her albums but with the Don't get me wrong, i do love Janet , I've been a fan of hers for 10 years and have all but one of her albums but with the exception of so much betta i don't like this album - she needs to stop using sex to sell her records and use her talent. i will keep it because its Janet but if anyone wants a Janet album go and buy control or rhythm nation.

    "Discipline" é um bom álbum em si, mas não tem nenhum toque de Janet nele, sem contar que dá para dormir com as enjoativas baladas dele, mas"Discipline" é um bom álbum em si, mas não tem nenhum toque de Janet nele, sem contar que dá para dormir com as enjoativas baladas dele, mas tem faixas fortíssimas como Feedback e Rock With U (uma das melhores músicas de sua carreira), também tem faixas que impressionam e Janet poderia seguir um estilo parecido futuramente como "LUV".Enfim, Janet é uma lenda e não precisa mais provar nada.
