iTunes Review

As the follow-up to 2008's Soul, Seal's Soul 2 moves up a decade from '60s soul into the '70s. Producers Trevor Horn, David Foster, and Jochem van der Saag keep things sleek and polished, smooth and sweet, while Seal settles in and does what he does best: singing classic songs with conviction. Soul in the '70s was often beautifully orchestrated, and this collection is true to that. Seal pulls off what seems impossible on the surface. He nails Smokey Robinson's "Ooh Baby Baby," hitting notes close to the heavens with ease. Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" is a solid re-creation of groove and production, capturing the original version's vibe. Seal doesn't back down from the challenge; these are top-shelf soul numbers. Marvin Gaye's "What's Goin' On," Bill Withers' "Lean on Me," Teddy Pendergrass' "Love T.K.O.," and The O'Jays' "Back Stabbers" are all given care and affection worthy of their legendary statuses.

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...
