To me, they are the same level of greatness, just from the perspective a woman in 1997 at age 31 vs the same woman in 2015 at age 48. 

Unbreakable was a return to form but let's not get carried de fuq away. As a project...TVR is next level. Imma keep saying this but sis sampled The Exorcist. A black pop artist sampling such

There’s no competition 💀💀💀

personally I prefer Unbreakable because her lyricism grew STRAIGHT TO THE ROOF. Black Eagle was amazing

I LOVE THAT SONG.  I wanna say it's her best written song.  I love the message, the production, her voice. :wub:

Beautiful soul I haven't met
A spiritual connection I'll never forget
Your precious light incredible
Sharing his love that is meant for us all
Come out of shadows into the light
Be free to imagine the future you'd like
Soaring above all of your boundaries
Yes the day will come

Hard to say. Unbreakable is definitely her best since The Velvet Rope, and the fact it more or less got rid of the interludes (except for just the one) works in its favour, but I think 20+ years of listening, history and sentiment won’t allow me to place it above TVR.

Imma keep saying this but sis sampled The Exorcist. A black pop artist sampling such a dark twisted demonic movie back in 97 was unhead of. But yall don't hear me.

I know that we hold TVR in such high regard but what we're not gonna do is act like out of all of Janet's catalog that "Unbreakable" (lyrically) isnt the closest to compete. Its easy to say "no competition" based on the fact that we're way more familiar w/ TVR ....it had damn a 20 year head start to marinate in our musical palate. Therefore from an objective stand point (and from a fair one thats not skewed by familiarity and/or a defining moment for that specific point in time for Janet) I would say if they had released back to back...it would be a tight run. So I'm not gonna give TVR a landslide vote..cuz UNBREAKABLE lyrically,sonically or organically better than most of Janet's catalog. Period. Give Janet her flowers. What other artists out of her peers was still making quality music to that level? I can't think of one. "Unbreakable" was a mixture of TVR and RN.....Hand deliver them flowers to that woman cuz she did that! GET INTO IT.

TVR-10

Unbreakable-5

Unbreakable is still TVR mature and wiser sister.  But SIS can't compare to the influential and iconic TVR album.

Unbreakable is better. It’s not as slow and sad as TVR. 

I think I’d say Unbreakable is sonically better just because it’s like a mix of the   Happy/poppier All for You album and the Slow jam/somber Velvet Rope album. Unbreakable is also vocally better and it’s flow isn’t interrupted by interludes. 
 

Arguably lyrically better as well.
