Every time Janet Jackson makes a new album, you can't help but hope that this will be the one to rehabilitate the family name, since it's clear by now that her wacky older brother isn't going to be returning to the glory days of Thriller and Off The Wall any time soon. For this disc, Jackson has finally brought someone else into her long-time production team of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis -- her boyfriend Jermaine Dupri. You can definitely hear Dupri's input on 20 Y.O.; the production sounds more contemporary than it has for quite some time. On the downside, there's a little too much consistency across the album -- too few moments stand out, and too many of the hooks just blend together. Jackson will definitely get a few hits out of it, and fans will be happy, but she's not rewriting the pop rulebook.
