Take Two #2: Janet Jackson's "The Velvet Rope" (1997)

By MaximumFun.org

Our second episode of the Take Two miniseries focuses on Janet Jackson's risqué and introspective album, The Velvet Rope. We discuss Janet's move to a more neo soul sound, how she matured as an artist when creating this record, and how Janet's gone underappreciated in the last decade.
