Seal has an amazing voice, and while you might wish he'd use it for singing his own material again, you cannot deny the soulfulness he brings to these classic songs. It repeats the formula of 'Soul 1', and (to my ears) has similarly over-egged orchestral backings which can be a distraction from the guy at the microphone and the feeling in the song. That said, Seal has one of the best set of vocal chords on the planet for this kind of material, and it's great to chill out to.
