The World's Greatest Tribute to Janet Jackson is a baffling mystery of eight songs performed by an anonymous studio session group, hardly a fitting tribute for any artist, let alone one of R&B's most celebrated performers through the '80s and '90s. Nevertheless, it's eight songs showcasing some of her greatest work performed haphazardly with little thought to production values. Inexplicably, a showcase of four other songs purporting to be roots and colleagues (contrary to opinion, Junior Mafia is not a colleague of Ms. Janet, let alone in the same league as her) of Jackson are haphazardly tacked on the end of the disc. A feeble curiosity at best and a horrible executed novelty at worst.
