Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation 1814 wasn't just an album; it was a movement. Ms. Jackson took her new found Control on our ears and crafted a concept album like no other. Under the production of NJS kings Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Jackson balanced the album perfectly between danceable R&B tracks (Miss You Much, Alright) and conscious songs alike (Rhythm Nation, The Knowledge). While some would have shied away from an album boasting topics such as illiteracy, racism, and poverty, Jackson pursued the project in full force. And practically every track is good, from "The Pledge" to "Miss You Much." Learn something while doing the running man. Bonus: In rare fashion, before Beyonce's B'Day labor, Jackson produced a catalog of videos to coincide with both her knowledge-heavy tracks as well as the regulars singles.
