A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this dance single talks about sex in abstract ways that will probably go over the heads of most kids, but does get a little heavy at times. The "N" word is said once in passing, but you can barely make it out. There is one line equating Jackson's swagger with the intensity of a woman's menstrual period's first day. The song's accompanying futuristic music video is clean and fine for all ages.
What's the story?
Is it any good?
FEEDBACK could sound like any old Britney song, but Janet Jackson can sing -- even though her vocals get a bit lost behind the rabidly popular trend of using software to alter vocal pitch and sound. She's made a single that is catchy, fun, void of raunchy lyrics, and most of all, really easy to listen to. Let's just hope that all of her songs off her new album don't sound like what everyone else is doing in pop these days.
