Adamski? Yep, I've listened ever since that Killer record and have been hooked ever since. Seal's albums right up to this one have always been soulful, but in a strange kind of way, very English, despite his Nigerian origins. I believe Seal's music has never been black or white, just thoughtful and deep with meaningful lyrics, always thought provoking and moody yet relevant. Forget mediocre reviews of Seal, all the albums are great, and this one is a "modern revelation". Some people don't listen enough to albums. Newcomers can listen to this album and quite confidently listen to his past accomplishments. Think about it, 13 years and 4 albums, quality not quantity, and I'd be surprised if at least one track could not stir your emotions and maybe make you shed a tear relating to one experience in your life. Lose yourself in his music and remember to give each album 3 sessions of listening before you judge. Seal and big Trev (Trevor Horn) have done it again. Guaranteed, you will ALWAYS replay your Seal albums over the next few years where other albums and artists collect in dust, and so bring on the next album. He truly is a unique artist with a way of cutting through the monotonous bilge that fills the charts today. On this album, there's such a crossover of music that there is something for everyone, from funk to soul, pop to dance. Without doubt, a superb album.
