I don't want to focus on the one or two star reviews given so far, other than to say that those reviewers clearly haven't been listening to the same album I have. In an industry that's become inundated with commercial, manufactured pop acts, Seal truly is like a breath of fresh air, even nearly twenty years after his 1991 debut. Seal has always been the kind of artist who can commit himself to any kind of music (and make it sound good), but clearly that isn't the reason for this album's title.

He's older now, perhaps a little bit wiser and far more settled in his personal life. Hence songs like Best Of Me and Letting Go reference both his relationship with Heidi and their four children. It's an emotive, uplifting, personal nod to 2008's Soul - an album which despite containing old-fashioned material (it was a covers album), elevated Seal back into the music buying public's consciousness. And Commitment does much the same, except to say that lyrically and vocally Seal sounds better than ever.

He's helped along a great deal by David Foster's exquisite production sensibilities. As such, anyone expecting the tried and tested formula of generic (read boring) pop music won't find it here. There's no guest appearances, no duets and no apologies, Seal obviously knows he doesn't need cheap gimmicks in order to sell records and is secure enough in his own vocal range to not need them.

Admittedly on my first listen only two songs really stood out to me (those being Silence and Secret), it takes several playthroughs before you can fully appreciate the quality of what you're hearing. Even two of my friends (who aren't big Seal fans) think this is an 'amazing' and 'really good' album. That says a lot for Seal's enduring (and widespread) appeal.

I run a unofficial fan site and had the privilege of receiving a watermarked copy of Commitment by Seal's manager.

Seal is sounding better than ever, every song on the album is a potential hit & David Foster has out done himself with production of this album. I believe that he has done for Seal what Trevor Horn did for him some 20 years back, make an album that could have only been made and sung by one man and one man only..... SEAL

Everything about it feels epic, It is one of those rare albums that when you play the first track you know that you are in for a treat! When I listen to the album I keep thinking to myself every song is sheer brilliance!! By then end of the album all I feel like doing is listening to it again, again & then again.

All I can say is you are all in for a treat of a life time!!

I have followed SEAL for nearly 20 years now, and just when I thought he has shown us everything he can do, He brings us his quintessential SEAL album...

By The Wolf TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 20 Sept. 2010
Format: Audio CD
My first encounter with Mr Samuel took place in a club of fairly
low repute in Toulouse in 1991; the sort of place frequented by
nocturnal creatures whose natural bent leads them to seek solace
in the shadows. The music video of 'Crazy' I witnessed there was
a revelation! The statuesque, wild-haired, leather-clad young man
was a new kind of artist and a breath of fresh air to help blow
the cobwebs enveloping the previous decade back into oblivion.
The song had a primal, essential, energy which is still as fresh
as a daisy nearly twenty years on.

Since then Mr Samuel's career has inevitably had some ups and
downs. (It took me a while to recover from the pseudo-medieval
fairy tale shenanigans of 1994's 'Kiss From A Rose'!)

His last album, 2008's 'Soul', was a credible and creditable
excursion into classic soul territory. This man really can sing!

His new album 'Commitment' retains all the hallmarks of his
distinctive vocal style. The voice : husky, still powerful but
distilled by the passing years into an instrument capable of
expressing a wide range of light and shade and subtle emotion.

There are eleven songs in the set and they are all very good.
David Foster's masterful production brings enormous richness to
the arrangements. The epic ballad 'Silence', for example, may well
be one of the finest performances of Mr Samuel's career so-far.
It is a truly beautiful composition, sung from the heart and
destined to warm many more. It made an Old Wolf go all moist-eyed
and shivery! (I know, I know, I can be a bit soppy sometimes!)

The gorgeous 'I Know What You Did' comes a very close second.

Forget the poor reviews on here- they must have been listening to a different album.
I have been a fan of 20 years- and I have to say this is Seal at his very best.
There is not one bad on this album. Every track is an epic in it's own right.

I know what you did, You get me and Best of Me stand out personally.

The last two albums didn't do much for me- this takes him back to his Very best and beyond.
Outstanding album- a must buy.

It is hard for me listen to Seal and not be stirred in some way. He may very well be the only dude who can make me cry ;) I have to say that the first 3 Seal albums for me were nothing short of brilliant. Trevor Horn, in my humble opinion, is really what made Seal and his unique sound, well...uniquely Seal's. Since then his work has seemed a bit disjointed for me, still great but not quite as cohesive between the lyrics and the music and the general flow of the album. I have heard several cuts off the Commitment album and it seems that Seal is back on track. No doubt influenced by his charmed life (and yes I mean Heidi ;) I really was struck by the subtle euro-funk of When I lie, and the epic show tune quality Weight of My Mistakes thus far and am eager to hear the rest of the album. The best thing about the first 3 Seal albums for me was the less is more approach and despite the grand production this album is likely to have at the hands of Foster it sounds like it has struck a good middle ground. With all of that said I don't know if this will make you a Seal fan but you may never hear a voice and orchestration as unique as this and that in of itself is worth investing in this album.

Special- K
