Review: Janet Jackson – That’s the Way Love Goes (Pop)

This review covers the pop track Janet Jackson – That’s the Way Love Goes.

This track was released in 1993 on the album janet. Yes, apparently the ‘J’ is lower case.

The track starts with a synth effect. The vocals come in with some subtle piano. After that, some pitch-bent vocals play out.

From there, the vocals take the track into the main chorus with a drum kit. Part of the main chorus involves some backup vocals along with the pitch-bent vocals.

After that, the vocals take the track into the next verse with a chime-like melody. From there, the vocals take the track into the next round of the main chorus.

After the pitch-bent vocals play out, the vocals take the track into the next verse. The pitch-bent vocals make the occasional appearance in this section. The vocals then take the track into the main chorus again.

Vocals from the beginning of the track are then repeated. The track then breaks down somewhat with the pitch-bent vocals playing out again. The drum kit then starts back up again. After that, the pitch-bent vocals lead the track out.

The track has a rather downtempo feel to it. It really could fall into the category of an ambient track if it reduced the vocals.

One of the strengths of this track is the drum kit. It really gives the track a nice personality. Meanwhile, the vocals are pretty decent as well.

The pitfall I see with this track is that there isn’t much to make this track stand out from the crowd. While it is a decent one to listen to as you are listening to it, it’s easy to eventually gravitate to another track and stick with that.

Overall, this is a decent track. It’s got a good drum kit and some decent vocals. While it has a good laid back nature to it, there isn’t much to make this one a very stand out track. A decent one all around.

Score
7/10
