Editors’ Notes

Before he had the opportunity to record his debut album, Seal toured Japan in a funk band and sang in a blues group in Thailand. Then with the release of Adamski’s huge single “Killer,” which he sang on, Seal became one of the most recognizable voices out of the U.K. rave scene. All of those diverse factors—R&B roots, internationalism, and techno futurism—came together on Seal’s 1991 debut. For a 27-year-old, he had an incredibly mature voice, full of poignancy, wisdom, and sensuality. While his vocals fit perfectly over the transcendental house-music beats (“Killer” is included here, along with the brilliant club track “The Beginning”), Seal was much more than just another disembodied disco chanter. Producer Trevor Horn immediately tapped into the up-and-coming singer’s roots and encouraged him to spread out on folk and blues-tinged tracks like “Deep Water” and “Killer.” With songs like “Wild,” “Violet," and “Future Love Paradise,” Horn and Seal saw how techno would soon fuse with pop to make the chart music of the future. This formula finds its pinnacle on “Crazy,” a breakout single that set the insistent throb of electronic music to the sleek momentum of jazz.

Still His Best

With songs like Crazy, and Killer, this is still in my opinion the best album Seal has done. Most of the songs are very upbeat and danceable, and it's definitely an album that is a strong listen all the way through.

Love it!!!

This is one of my favorite cds of all time. I enjoy every song on this cd and can listen to it over and over again. My favorite song is "Show Me" because of its smooth and romantic sound that is great to listen to in the dark.


This album is honestly seal at his best, riveting songs and amazing lyrics.

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...
