Slow burn, but brilliant after a few listens,

After the ground-breaking Seal I, it took me a while to realise that Seal II was even better, and I would put this on a similar level. A serious return to form after the mediocre Human Beings, this is beautifully written and performed, and Trevor Horn's production is generally spot on. The haunting, powerful ballads (Love's Divine, Don't make me wait, and Touch) are the highlights, and are as good as anything he's done. The more up-tempo, club-tinged singles Get It Together and My Vision are less successful, and the 'bonus' club mix of Love's Divine could happily have been left out altogther. Overall, though, still more quality than just about anything else I've heard this year.
