A perfect blend of dance, R&B, pop, and social/political statements. Huge impact on music. This album is when Janet really laid out the blueprint.

The interludes were as interesting as the music. I felt it had little dynamic to it... you heard one song and you heard 'em all except for the lyrics (for the most part).

This album is definitely one of Janet's best. It's one of those rare albums that is fantastic from start to finish. "Rhythm Nation 1814" was quite a contrast to her mega breakthrough album, "Control."

"Rhythm Nation 1814" would spawn a jaw dropping SEVEN top 5 hits on the Billboard Hot 100. A record which remains unbroken.

Janet Jackson turned into a star with her album "Control", but this was what rocketed her into mega-stardom.

I don't rate this album as highly as the album "Control" or "Janet" in fact "Velvet Rope" is also a better and more mature album. I don't find R.N. as soulful as her other albums it has a some good tracks on it especially the last 3 tracks which are ballads and Escapade but it hasn't stood the test of time.

By far the best Janet album and one of the greatest albums ever! I love everything on this album. My most favorite songs are "Come Back to Me", "Love Will Never Do...", "Escapade" and "Black Cat"

"Control"'s last single, "the pleasure principle" (incl. the video), gave a good glimpse into the stark grit (for r&b/dance/pop music) of "rhythm nation 1814", where Janet stepped completely out of Jacko's shadow. ("Love will never do without you" would provide a glimpse into "janet." as well.) The music (and video choreography) is hard-hitting, often touching on social injustices, from the title track to "state of the world". Her ballads, which close off the album, work better than those on "control" too.
