Product Description

Product Description

SEAL Seal (1991 German ZTT Records 9-track CD album produced by Trevor Horn including the classics Crazy Killer and Future Love Paradise; fold-out picture sleeve)

Amazon.co.uk

Not to be confused with his equally eponymous but rather less fine second album. Seal towered briefly over the scene in the early nineties--latecomer to pop, he co-wrote and sang on Adamski's sublime "Killer", bringing a rare touch of Marvin Gaye-style gravitas to the otherwise E-driven and perishable techno scene. His debut album was equally stately, benefiting from producer Trevor Horn's trademark epic flourishes and funky bombast, with Seal's hoarse vocals and impassioned lyrics taking on the entire, broken world. "Deep Water", for instance, was a spiritual/eco-lament inspired by the fate of some dolphins who found themselves washed up in the Thames where the water pollution killed them. This conscientious cri de coeur was echoed in "The Beginning" and "Crazy", pop music that dared to shed a serious tear. After this, unfortunately, Seal went all MOR-shaped. --David Stubbs

Before buying SEAL at the age of 15, I'd never been interested in music that much. Sure, I'd listen to the radio but never feel the need to do anything else. Then, one Saturday morning I was sitting watching The Ghost Train (kids programme like SMTV, Going Live etc.) and I was hit full in the face by what I could even tell back then was raw talent. Seal was on TV performing an acoustic version of one of his hits from his new album. I can even remember him being interviewed about what impact his recent trip to Africa had on him - Show Me was inspired by it he said. I've never looked back - this is where my love of music started. Today this album still holds up as a masterpiece, with thought provoking lyrics (that he is still yet to match, he tries to hard these days) and a sound that captured the moment. Featuring the talents of Guy Sigsworth and the masterful production of Trevor Horn this CD will be held in high regard forever. If you've never heard this album you've got a fantastic time ahead.

Have you ever bought an album? which, no matter how many times you hear it, you still get that feeling that you are listening to a masterpiece?
I bought this album when it first came out in 1990 & was I so impressed with what I heard, apart from the "kiler" track(which was a tacky, but good atempt to get himself recognised).
All you young whipersnappers should by this album, if only to listen to "DEEP WATER", this track alone just for the build up into the BASS kick is an absolute classic.
The whole album is sublime " Honestly".
And to round it all of, "Violet". A track so far ahead of its time it's synonomous with "Helter Skelter" by The Beatles.
Need I say more.

that I always ensure is in my collection, and this is it.Having been lost 3 times over the last 8 years since I first listened to it fully, it is the first album that gets replaced. From the initial energetic pop-like track through to the final reminiscently sung piece, you can sit back, close your eyes and immerse yourself in the lyrics.
It has more spontaneity than the later albums (which are also exceptional) and for me remains one of the all time greatest albums. His later work, especially 'Human Being', do have more depth to the words. You can feel the work put in to produce these masterpieces. But for me, the first album will always reign - simply because it changed the way I listened to music.

Format: Audio CD
With his impressive physique inherited from his Brazilian and Nigerian ancestry and a voice so smooth it conjures up the memory of Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield and Smokey Robinson, Seal was destined to be a huge star. This wonderful album includes his Adamskiless version of Killer, along with his UK number one Crazy and further delights like the club movers The Beginning and Future Love Paradise. Produced by Trevor Horne of Frankie Goes To Hollywood fame, the album's slick arrangements lend full justice to his sensual voice and sophisticated hook-filled songs of yearning. A very impressive debut.

This is a real jewel if you're looking for sound that is capable of soothsaying and seduction at the same time. Seal is a real superstar in mixing folk, jazz, R&B with acoustic guitar. Together with producer Trevor Horn (Rod Stewart, Art of Noise, Yes) he has created a very colorful mixture with a very classy feel. All in all this is a very vibrant album, a personal favorite of mine which I can only highly recommend.

Format: Audio CD
20 years old and still outstanding. I would have given it 5 stars at the time of original release, and today the same, easily.

On his debut self titled album Seal reached song writing and artistic peaks he would never again achieve on later releases. This albums works best if one just plays the tracks in order and just let the music flow. The tempo and moods are varied and bring texture and variety which many artists fail to acheive in an entire career, let alone on a debut album. Yes his early singles are here, 'Killer' (non Adamski version), 'Future Love Paradise' and the outstanding 'Crazy', but the album has such greater depth with 'Whirlpool', 'Voilet' and 'Deep Water' it would be a crime to skip them or press stop before you have given them a chance to win you over (which they will).

This album is 9 tracks of magnificence. Thought provoking lyrics and images, matched to the magic touch of Trevor Horn production which even by his own standards is in overdrive. A brilliant mix of electronica, acoustic instruments, live performances and sequenced elements, this album cannot fail to impress even the most hardened critic. The very fact that 20 years after its release I feel compelled so strongly to write about it, says a great deal. In fact I am not quite so sure why I have waited so long to write a review of it.

There is a saying or phrase that goes along the lines that you appreciate things in life in retrospect, well this is certainly true here. This debut album by Seal is what tends to be referred to as a 'classic'. A quiet not obvious classic perhaps, but it fully deserves that title.
