Ritual of Love

Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis' production is the real star of White's sophomore album. And while the results aren't nearly as stunning as similar work they did with Janet Jackson around the same time (many of these songs sound like Rhythm Nation leftovers), there is a uniformity to the tracks that makes Ritual a more consistent and enjoyable listen than it should be. Highlights are "Romantic," "The Way I Feel About You," "Walkin' the Dog," and "Do Unto Me."

This record is one my favorites of all of time. During that time Karyn brought a sense of herself in this record. One of my favortie song is The Way I feel about you and to me that song is what got everybody in the mood for love. Karyn look luck in the future and I hope that you will comes in to the music business and bring us more hit records like you did before.

For me, Karyn White epitomizes the early 90s. Her smooth sound,sexiness and attitude made her, in my opinion, the best black female solo artist of that time. Romantic is one of my favourite songs of all time, it fills me with nostalgia when I hear it of when I was 11 years old in the Summer of '91. Quite simply, Karyn White, rocks.
