Carrie continues her cartoon-like delivery and the entire project lacks soul. The passion feels manufactured and I can see why Janet bailed. I'd like to say it's a "grower", but I know it's not. So sad.
Yeah not loving it. Oh well... there's a bunch of other great albums, including No Cities To Love
