Customer Reviews

He really put his "Soul" into this one!!!

This is a must have if you're a fan of Seal and his music.  It's great to see him risk of taking on these timeless classics, and the reward is all ours as his interpretation of them is true to both himself, and the genre.  You won't be disappointed as Seal really finds his range and lends his unique style to these ageless soul standards.  Soul is a very different type of album than what many are used to from Seal, but it still remains unmistakably Seal, and he succeeds in putting his imprint on this great collection of songs and making them his own, no small feat!

Starbucks Express

Seal's "Soul" is aimed straight for the wallets of the Starbucks and Borders crowd. Not Great. Not Bad. This uninspired, lazy collection of classic soul remakes is decidedly middle-of-the-road and safe. Featuring a song selection that can be heard weekly sung by American Idol contestants, the recording rarely rises above generic. His rendition of Otis Redding's "I've Been Loving You Too Long" is the only song here above average. Disco classic "Knock On Wood" is stripped of all flavor and microwaved to light-rock mush here.  I challenge any R&B aficionado to listen any more than a minute of this singer murder Ann Pebbles' "I Can't Stand The Rain". Seal's version of Al Green's "I'm Still In Love With You" and "Here I Am" are so polished that the songs rendered soul-less.

The Right Music at the Right Time...

This selection of songs at this time in history is just right. Just listen to "A Change is Gonna Come". Maybe you have to be of "a certain age" to get it, but, this is good stuff. To my mind Seal has the experience and the soulful pipes to bring forth the depth of meaning in the lyrics. It is a joy for me to see the spirit of this music brought to a new generation of listeners.

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...
