iTunes Review

Seal never really established a single definitive sound. The thread that ties his almost twenty-year career together is surely his voice. Breathy but not husky, sensitive but not sentimental, it often feels like a masculine equivalent to Sade’s mysterious coo. The various soundscapes that appear on this greatest hits collection are mostly the work of songwriter and producer Trevor Horn, whose extended collaboration with Seal is unique in a career defined by one-off projects for everyone from Yes to Pet Shop Boys to Belle & Sebastian. Horn is responsible for “Crazy” and “Kiss From a Rose,” Seal’s two most memorable songs — the first a hypnotic house-inflected tune in which Seal’s voice blends completely within the contours of the music, while the latter is a stately and ornately orchestrated ballad that won Horn and Seal a Grammy award in 1996. But the most welcome surprise of Best, 1991-2004 is its covers. Seal turns Steve Miller’s “Fly Like An Eagle” into a sequel to “Crazy,” while “Walk On By” remains moody and bluesy beneath a techno beat. Some Best Ofs suffer from jarring diversity, but Best, 1991-2004 makes an asset of its varied terrain. Its multi-layered playlist goes to show that all Seal has to do to make a song his is sing on it.

I live in L.A. and had the pleasure of bumping into this artist at a car shop a few months back. He said "Hi" first. Told him his music was life altering. In the darkest moments of my life, when I thought I wasn't go to pull through something, like a break-up or some other inevitable let down, I would turn on a song from this album and suddenly, I just knew everything was going to be all right. The music is that powerful. It gets you through. It's the kind of music you want to have around, all the time. Forever.

Do yourself a favor...

Buy this album instead of the regular version! It's packed with amazing acoustic versions that are a must for any fan! If you're looking to download only the stuff you've heard on the radio, this is probably a bit much for you. I almost made the mistake of buying the other version, which I would have really enjoyed, but I would have missed out on some great and enjoyable versions of my favorite songs. The decision is yours, but I recommend this version!

If you like Seal, this is a Must!

I heard the acoustic versions on my local jazz station and had to get this album. It's fabulous and every song is wonderful. Definitely worth it to buy the whole album.

Seal emerged from England's house music scene in 1990 to become the most popular British soul vocalist of that decade. Although his earliest material still showed signs of acid house, by the mid-'90s he was known for a distinctive fusion of soul, folk, pop, dance, and rock that brought him success on both sides of the Atlantic. Early on, he enjoyed a very high level of success -- an Ivor Novello Award was given to him for the writing of his first single, and he won three Grammy Awards only a few...
