5.0 out of 5 stars My Album Of The Year 4 Nov 2008
By David R. Bishop VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Seal is not known for singing traditional soul music, and there is no reason why he should. Then again this album shows that he can!!

You may have heard his version of Sam Cooke's 'A Change Is Gonna Come' on Radio 2. The rest of the album sounds firmly up to that standard. After a couple of plays, my faves are the two Al Green hits. The plaintive Memphis style horns really get me where I live. The two Impressions' numbers sound really noteworthy too, especially 'It's Alright', a song that is always guarenteed to cheer me up.

If I have any problem with this album, that would be the length. Less than 46 minutes seems a bit mean these days. Better 46 minutes of pure magic though, than 70 minutes of pure dross.

Seal, you have gone up in my estimation. I would buy an album of this calibre every week if it was available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive! 26 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
I bought this just before Xmas, and have listened to it a number of times now - its one of those albums that just smooths past you, and the time goes without you realising. We played this as 'background' when friends were over, and ended up turning it up so they could listen to it properly, and theyve ended up buying it too... I find it a very satisfying album to listen to, and if he made 'Soul II' Id buy it tomorrow!

4.0 out of 5 stars SEAL ( of ) APPROVAL 3 Jan 2009
By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Since his first noticeable appearance in the listening world, circa 1991, The Wolf
has long held a quiet ambivalence with regard to Mr Seal (nee Samuel).

My first encounter with the man and his music took place in the dark bowels
of a nightclub of low repute in Toulouse where, upon a large screen, I became
an accidental witness to the video accompanying his debut single 'Crazy'.
It made me sit up and take notice - probably a wise choice given the prevailing
circumstances - all those misappropriated white birds fluttering around the
striking young man in the long ( and coveted ) black leather coat. With that husky,
powerful voice and wild hair he was a captivating and exciting presence.

What followed between then and now has always seemed, to me, to be a
bit of a hit and miss affair.
Mr Seal has his supporters, no doubt, and I would not wish to offend them
but each and every one of his releases ( and I have listened to them all )
have displayed huge inconsistencies in quality of both writing and performance.
To be sure every album has had two or three very strong songs but for the rest things
skate too close to the middle of the road to have been wholly convincing and satisfying.

Then along came 'Soul'.

This was the album Mr Seal was born to make.

The twelve songs in this project display a consummate and quite exemplary artistry.

The voice has matured into a powerfully expressive instrument which redefines
each and every one of these great songs - and what a collection it is!

Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, James Brown, Al Green, Ben E King, Curtis Mayfield... obviously these names belong on every list of great artists. But Seal? errr, no.

At his best, he may have a pretty good and fairly distinctive voice, but he seems to be somewhat below his best here. These one-dimensional & over-produced versions sound incredibly bland in comparison to the originals. They ARE still great songs though and if you're unfamiliar with any of the original versions, do yourself a favour and look them up: I guarantee you won't be disappointed - and you probably won't play this CD again either.

I could have given this 2-stars, but it gets an extra star for the possibility that it may introduce a new generation of listeners to the world of REAL soul music. Well I can dream can't I?

By Jimbo VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Seal has a great voice, very soulful and lovely to listen to, so to produce an album of soul classics seems a natural progression. The choice of songs is great - most are very well known with a few not so well known to tempt you to listen to the original artists.
Seal manages to cover all the tracks with great aplomb, my personal favourite being 'People Get Ready'. The production is slick but not over the top and the music is great, a great Sunday afternoon easy listener or a dinner party conversation piece.
Well done Seal, the addition of Barrack Obama's 'A Change Is Gonna Come' is welcome (performed originally by Sam Cooke, not Obama - it was one of the songs he used for his campaign!).
All in all, a great record and one that should be applauded for all the right reasons. This is a cracking Christmas present for anyone with a taste in good music.
