5.0 out of 5 stars Karen White Seizes The Day! October 28, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Not to mention her long absence from recording,but also the fact there are so many female soul singers of that period who followed more or less in her league,it became hard to really accept we'd ever hear from Karyn White ever again. In the seventeen years after her previous album Make Him Do Right,she's endured a divorce,a new marriage,an album that went unreleased in 2006 and a re-imagining of her career in the real estate/interior design business which,interestingly enough she seems to have found a degree of success. But now that her children are grown and she's found success in another venue,she decided to come back to make music for mainly creative purposes. After one false start earlier in the year,she's finally made it.

With most of the songs written by Karen with the rest being handled by multi instrumentalist/producer Derek "DDA" Allen,this album finds Karen completely broken with any ties to any hip-hop/R&B related trend of the day for the purpose of making money. The opening track "Sista Sista",the title song of her unreleased 2006 album is a strong,gospel drenched southern soul ballad showcasing how Karyn's strong,husky voice has grown..even stronger and huskier with time. "Dance Floor" and "This Hot" are just amazing uptempo numbers-stripped right down to snazzy drum/bass/keyboard style "naked" funk in the finest "Billie Jean" type tradition. "Sooo Weak" is equally as strong with some beautifully chorded keyboard textures and melodic phrases that Karyn works over like melted caramel on rich butterscotch ice cream.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great surprise! July 31, 2012
By EcoJoe
Format:Audio CD
Just happened upon this album and was pleased with what I found. Its been awhile since she last dropped an album but this one ranks up there. Her first was by far her best but her voice and production are still great. Unbreakable and True Colors are choice picks on this album. I would have liked to hear more of her smooth R&B style but hopefully there will be more to come from this songstress. Karyn, consider asking Babyface to write a few more songs for you. :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Review November 21, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A few weeks ago I was watching TV One "Unsung" the "Unsung" artist was Karyn White. At the end of the show she began to promote her new comeback album singing a song called "Sista Sista". I said "I like it, I'll go download the whole album (Without listening to it first) because I know Karyn White is going to be jamming like she did back in the day".....WRONG!!!!!!!

Karyn White released her 4th project entitled "Carpe Diem" which means "Seize The Day" after a 18 yr hiatus she decided to make a comeback to the music industry.

Let me say that "Carpe Diem" was NOT what I was expecting to hear as in the flavor of music. I know artists like to reinvent themselves as in the case of Karyn White after being away for 18 years going through motherhood, divorce, finding a new career in real estate and interior designing sometimes an artist just grow and evolve into a different direction and from what I'm hearing on this project I really believe Karyn White is at peace with herself and I can respect that but on the other hand NOT everybody is going to be at peace with this project because it's NOT the Karyn White of OLD who had songs that were produced by L.A & Babyface or Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis that had people packed on the dance floor and love songs that made people wanna go straight to the bedroom.

Instead this project is more like being in a Lounge or a Jazz club setting watching her perform on a small stage with candle lights and incense where the mood is so relaxed that you might end up falling asleep especially if you had too many drinks..LOL but seriously, I didn't find most of her songs to be all that captivating. I do like the title track "Carpe Diem (Seize The Day)"& Sista Sista. Heaven, Sooo Weak and the remake of Cyndi Lauper's "True Colors" has potential.
