Previews

Rolling Stone (10/6/94, p.90) - 3.5 - Good - "...His voice--soulful, raspy, a little dark--can make even the maudlin seductive..."
Entertainment Weekly (6/3/94, p.60) - "...This British neo-soul singer's gift flows from his ability to transform dance-floor tracks into spine-tingling magical experiences....Unlike most dance albums, SEAL is more than a collection of singles...." - Rating: A
Musician (7/94, p.88) - "...Seal manipulates mood the way James Brown works a groove, but that doesn't always work to his advantage. Because it's so easy to get lost in the luxuriant warmth of Seal's music, you may not even notice how great the songs are...."
New York Times (Publisher) (1/5/95, p.C15) - Included on Stephen Holden's list of the Top 10 Albums Of '94 - "...[An] impassioned and majestically produced...suite of songs..."

Fresh from his 1991 self-titled debut, Seal followed with another self-titled release. And true to form, it's another stunning work, although it becomes clear that a musical maturation has taken place. Produced by ex-Buggles frontman Trevor Horn (Pet Shop Boys, ABC, Yes, Frankie Goes to Hollywood), Seal is far more enchanting than his debut. True, Seal is a bit too relaxed at times, but aside from that criticism, the record is lush with harmonies and over-the-top melodies. "Don't Cry" flows with the luxuriant vibes of a hushed vocal and a bellowing string arrangement. Seal showcases his collaborative talent with "If I Could," a duet featuring Canadian folkie Joni Mitchell. "Kiss from a Rose" and "Prayer for the Dying" established Seal as a household name after both became radio and television mainstays. The soul is there, hauntingly similar to singer Terence Trent D'Arby. But what's so unique about Seal is his gift of transforming free-flowing songs into quick dancefloor tracks with a transcendent step into musical magic. His voice has a spell like that, and his second album reflects such skills. ~ MacKenzie Wilson
