Fantastic production, great songs and a great singer - what more could you wish for?,
This review is from: Soul (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.
