      General Rules for Planet Janet Welcome to Planet Janet! The main objective of this board is to express your love for Janet, your opinions, and to interact with an important segment of the Janet fandom.  To enjoy your experience here, below are general rules and guidelines to make your experience here be successful: The N Word Please be aware that the N word is going to be filtered on this forum. Most importantly, this word is not acceptable on this forum in any form; therefore, if it is used again by ANY member on here, it will result in an immediate and permanent ban. Consider this the first, only, and last warning regarding this. Music Download | Copyright Infringement Illegal download links to music from any artist are not permissible to be posted on this forum at any time. If you have posted an illegal download link, you must take it down immediately. Failure to remove the links, and/or subsequent, repeated offenses will result in disciplinary action up to and including a permanent ban from the forum. Fan Threads of Other Artists Generally, we like to keep threads and/or topics about other artists within an Official Artist Thread.  This helps to eliminate clutter and redundancy throughout the forum and allow a one-stop shop to view comments on that particular artist not pertaining to Janet.  If there is HUGE news related to an artist and generates a lot of discussion, it is okay to have a standalone thread on that topic outside of the Official Thread. A good debate is OKAY in the Official Threads of other artists.  Official Threads are not complete sanctuaries of devotion of that particular artist; however, there is a need to be civil with other members.  Please refrain from personal attacks and arguments that devolve into personal attacks. Additionally, do NOT use Janet as means to defend an artist.  This forum is made in her honor, and putting her down to boast your particular artist is prohibited. Exercise good judgment and common sense.  If not, then the moderating team will exercise disciplinary action depending on the egregiousness of the action.  Please utilize this announcement as a first warning. Personal Attacks

      Each member has a warning percentage - most of them are at zero right now but a few have been warned before. Each warning is worth 10%, and once it gets to 100% the member is automatically banned from the forum. 

      Each time a member gets into an argument with another member that includes personal attacks, if it is reported or viewed by a member of the moderating team, each participant in the personal attack will get an increase in their warning percentage.  They will be notified via PM, and, prior to posting again, will receive a receipt acknowledging that warning before they can post again. The Moderating Team will never divulge a member's warn percentages on the forum or to other members.

      What this means is you are now responsible for your own future on this forum. The Moderating Team will not keep asking you to stop and being ignored. Learn to let things go and learn to moderate yourself before posting; if you end up banned it will be your own fault. Personal attacks and include attacks on one’s race, age, religious creed, color, gender, national origin, physical, mental or visual disability, medical condition, ancestry, marital and military status, pregnancy or sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and general physical appearance/looks. Depending on the nature of the personal attack there will be corrective action up and including permanent banning. If you have any inquiries about your warning percentage, feel free to PM a mod for an answer. If you need any clarification on the rules, feel free to reach out to The Moderating Team.

I love the album but "Born Is The King" should've been a FULL song! <_< That's my only complaint, but I love it otherwise. :blush: This and the original will be getting played for my family on Christmas day of course. Her vocals are amazing (as I can always expect), and it really puts me into the holiday spirit. ^_^

My favorite is actually still "Oh Santa!" :blush: But "When Christmas Comes" and "Oh Come All Ye Faithful" are really up there too. It's actually really diverse musically, so it's got something for everyone: traditional pop, r&b/soul, dance. ^_^

If I had to predict first week sales, I'll guess 60K which is a good start. It's a Christmas album so its sales won't pick up until December (as long as IDJ doesn't screw up again -_-). And I'm forgetting about #1! :lol: I'm not here for all of that tho... all that matters is I love it. :blush:**working on my personal review right now**

HDD just predicted 50K-60K. Wow I was right on the money. :P But more importantly, my really rushed review... :P^_^

Mariah's latest holiday offering, Merry Christmas II You, is a wonderful sequel to what I regard as the best Christmas album of all time!

1. The album opens with a short instrumental of "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town." She's already done two amazing renditions of the song (one off the 1994 classic and then another in 2005) so I guess no need to cover it third time...

2. Then this leads into the lead single and my favorite song off the album "Oh Santa!" This is song is like the younger sister of "All I Want for Christmas Is You," but amazing in its own way. I've already praised its epicness (vocals, production, and concept are superb here), so no more really needs to be said.

3-5. The next three songs are styled in the traditional pop carols of the '60s. The main highlights of these are the vocals... "Little Drummer Boy" has the best "rump-a-bump-bumps" I've ever heard, my jaw literally dropped from how she sounded on "Christmas Time Is In the Air Again."

5. On the third of these songs, "The First Noel," I love the transition into the more contemporary R&B-sounding "Born Is the King." This part deserved to be a full song, I really wish that part was much longer.

6. "When Christmas Comes" is where a soulful dimension is added, and it's definitely a highlight taking it back to the TEOM glory days musically. I really love it! :)

7. Y'ALL KNOW IT's CHRISTMAS! :lol: JD and crew just came out of nowhere and "Here Comes Santa Claus / Housetop Celebration" begins. I really love the juxtaposition of Mariah's angelic voice over the club atmospheric beat. That's genius! It has a "Last Night A DJ Saved My Life" vibe too.

8. "Charlie Brown Christmas" was quite unexpected with the classic intro, but her sweet honey angelic vocals are bliss to my ears!

9. Now for one of the big highlights! "Oh Come All Ye Faithful / Hallelujah Chorus" is phenomenal! By inviting her mother, who's a mezzo-soprano opera singer, I found the song has an underlying theme of "family" which is one of the most important things about Christmas. They both sound incredible here, and I especially love the high B♭6 Mariah sustained at the end!

10. "O Holy Night - Live etc. etc. lol" is actually as old as 2000, but ain't no rule saying you can't use vocals from 1812! :P I actually love how crisp this sounds compared to that low quality YouTube audio I downloaded like 5 years ago, so in the end I'm glad I got this great high quality version of it. To go off on a tangent, I always loved the music video to this song - that's just what Heaven looks like to me!

11. "One Child" is another great original song by her, and takes it back to the traditional pop styles. Very inspirational! This is like the sister of "Jesus Born On This Day" from the original especially with the young singers at the end. :)

12. As she said on her "All I Want for Christmas Is You" classic, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" and she certainly didn't with the extra festive version. The original was perfect as it is, so I'm glad she didn't tweek it a lot. Her harmonizations in major thirds near the end (i.e. the part where she sings "Yoooouuuuu" in head voice in a G5 note, she blends it with a B5 two full tonal steps above), along with various adlibs blended throughout, are a really nice touch!

13. Call me biased, but this is the best rendition of "Auld Lang Syne" I've ever heard. I love the dance beat that kicks in too. This WILL be the first song I play of 2011!

Overall, this actually put me into the holiday spirit and Christmas is *checks* 52 days away. :lol: This album gets a solid A just for the top-class superb vocals, warm and fuzzy vibe invoking the Christmas spirit on me the listener, and its musical diversity! :D
