Number one Club Track. 11 Nov. 2003
By K. Eisenberger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This song is only the third track of 2003 to stay at number one on the Club Play charts of Billboard for more than 1 week-"Dark Beat" by Oscar G & Ralph Falcon(3 weeks) and "Pavement Cracks" by Annie Lennox(2 weeks). So comes the retro sounding first single from Seal's newest cd and it comes in 5 club mixes. The first track is the excellent lp version(4:21) and then come the beautiful remixes. Peter Rauhofer's Classic Club Mix(7:39) and Superchumbo's Guiding Light Mix(9:08) are the most aggresive mixes -big room house mixes that up the energy to a higher level. Bill Hamel Vocal Mix(10:12) is a nice house mix while the Wide Horizon Remix(8:16) is more like his classic "Crazy"- it is more like an extended version of the Lp mix than the others. The Roy's Soliders Soliders Of Universal Love Remix(7:28) is disco/retro with strings galore . This mix would make Teddy Pendergrass proud to have sung it himself. The song is one of hope and love and it comes through on each mix. Beautiful song and dance mixes. A++++

The 6th cut of this release makes this a MUST have! 10 Feb. 2004
By guillermoj - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In recent years I've curtailed my purchases of maxi-singles due to increasing prices and diminishing returns as many times remixes include the original version, and maybe (if you are lucky) 2 mixes presented as 4, as I can't count the number of times that I've seen and/bought remixes only to see that several mixes are only longer or shorter versions of the same thing. That is not the case in this maxi-single as it has the original version and, count them, 5 additional and fully distinct remixes.
Although I like all the version, among my favorites is Roy's Soldiers of Universal Love Remix (these names are getting a little long), which begins with a great disco beat with harps and bongos in the mix as well as 1970's recording touches as well as a riff that reminds me of The O'Jays "Backstabbers." Seal's voice is out front and as strong as it is in the original cut. It clocks in at 7:28 but does not feel like it goes on too long like so of the lesser remixes out there. I also like the Wide Horizon Remix as it starts out very aggressively, has some interesting echoes, quiet moments, and a subtle 1980s Janet Jackson "Rhythm Nation" vibe which comes and goes several times during the mix. Although it's not as amazing as the aforementioned mix, it is addictive. The other 3 mixes, which should not be lumped together as they are different, do have in common that they sound less retro than the original and have very strong elements of house.
It's hard to recommend these to people who don't make their own mixes as it can be annoying to hear different versions of the same song in one sitting. But since I do love to make my own personalized CDs, this will certainly be in my next mix along with Annie's Lennox's "A Thousand Beautiful Things" remix off the "Wonderful" Maxi-Single. Maybe this is a renaissance of sorts for maxi-singles, but being the skeptic that I am, I see what happens. Also, piggy-backing on another reviewers comments, it would be amazing if Amazon.com would include samples of this type of product as they may not only help us make better decisions, but sales could rise too. Just some food for thought. Thanks to all Amazon.com reviewers as you guys have been responsible for some of my greatest purchases and my reviews are my attempts to give back to you as much as you give me.

#2 Dance Song from 2003 per Billboard 4 Jan. 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I really wish that Amazon would put sound samples of singles on their website. This is an incredible single. The Bill Hamel mix is worth the price of admission alone - absolutely scorching. This song was listed as Billboard's Dance Music / Club play #2 song for 2003.
While the song does state: "Pray to God or something... or whatever you do", this is not a preaching song. It is a plea for unity to "keep this world together". A positive message, and a powerful song.
This is predominantly a dance single, with a chillout mix included - if you do not like dance music, this is probably not for you. The Superchumbo mix is tribal. The Bill Hamel mix is progressive house, and reminds me of Nalin & Kane's work, only updated with crisp studio production. If I had to choose one single to have for 2003, this is this one.
An absolute classic! 28 Nov. 2005
By hou_music - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Get It Together" became the first in a string of four consecutive #1 hits on the Billboard Dance/Club chart for Seal. This song stands out as a classic club track now - one of the biggest of 2003.

For me, these are the two standout mixes:

2 - Peter Rauhofer's Classic Club Mix

4 - Bill Hamel's Vocal Mix

Peter Rauhofer's mix sounds exactly how its titled. A classic mix with a distinctive mid-'90s-flavor to it, a perfect fit for Seal since that's when he got his start. Its straight-up, standard house, and one of the best mixes Rauhofer has done in the last few years.

Bill Hamel's mix is truly outstanding. His mix takes on a more ethereal, atmospheric feel, punctuated in the middle with an acoustic guitar solo break. In my opinion, this is Bill Hamel's best mix of any song to date.

The mixes really raise the bar on the tepid original production and bring this song to life. The combination of positive, uplifting lyrics, amazing vocals, and great beats make this a can't miss release from Seal. I swear this man has got to be one of the most underrated musicians of all time.
AS good as ''Kiss from a Rose''? 11 Sept. 2003
By Mr A U Hammond - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Seal's latest offering takes him back to the quality of songwriting on his first two albums. The melody and lyrics are yet again back to the days of Crazy or Kiss from a Roase. His voice never went away but this new single is great and deserves to get lots of airplay and go on to be a big hit.
