Album Review

London singer/songwriter Seal certainly made a name for himself with his eponymous debut despite the comparison to fellow London mate, the raspy soul Terence Trent D'Arby. But Seal is more relaxed, and his craftsmanship is delicate and well defined. Lyrical depictions are light, songwriting is personal, and production credits are most impressive. With star-studded work from both Trevor Horn (Tina Turner, the Art of Noise, Rod Stewart) and Trevor Rabin (Yes, John Miles), Seal is surely a critical hit. Becoming a mainstream radio mainstay for the summer of 1991, the single "Crazy" carried heavy notoriety for Seal and instantly made him a household name. His collaborative effort with Adamski for "Killer" was a massive club hit thanks to its Hi-NRG strength, but house elements are showcased other album tracks such as "The Beginning." Seal is not necessarily a dance innovator, but he makes for a select crossover artist with impeccable talent worthy of heavy acclamation and critical recognition. The general mood captured on his debut album is refreshing for the early-'90s mediocrity of post-hair metal and manufactured synth bands. His music was a major force throughout the decade and well into the new millennium. With Trevor Horn at his side, it's undeniable. Together they go for exactly what Seal is looking for: the beauty, desire, and simplicity in creating a new sound. Seal is the face and Horn is the face behind it all.

Customer Reviews

Superb Seal

With the exception of one song, Kiss from a Rose, a truly stunning sound!!

Takes you to another place

Part two of Seal's classic phase and argubaly his most successful record on both sides of the atlantic. Dreamy, sonically layered, lyrically mature and pure beauty resonantes from the music. A great album to chill out to and watch the world go by on a sunny day.

How much had I missed this album ....

Lost my original copy to an old girlfriend and recently caught up whilst on holiday. Wonderful sounds which feel strangely current and nostalgic at the same time. Kiss From A Rose was the most commercial; good but overshadows what is a magic collection of melodies. 'Fast Changes' always makes me shiver. Great to grab this again. Don;t want to tarnish it with the 'classic' title but a must-own for any collection.
