Janet's debut still holds up pretty well. It is a little too long and the groove isn't quite groovy enough, but this is a song about an ossifying relationship and being stuck in a synth solo makes a certain amount of sense. Indeed, some parts of this song presage the move toward rap without ever not being a sung song.
