Seal delivers an amazing album in his newest release, Soul. However, it also leaves you wondering how much better it could have been. In his latest album Seal covers 12 classics. His rich voice couldn’t be better suited for these songs, and he delivers twelve great classics to sing along with while you’re in your car, shower, or wherever you listen to music.
My only complaint is that he didn’t do anything to make these songs his own. They are amazing songs in their own right, which makes them hard, if not impossible, to improve upon. I think it would have been nice to see Seal put his own touches into these songs and take a little bit more ownership in them. Of course, that is a slippery slope, and apparently one he decided that he did not want to travel down. Regardless, this still is a great CD and if you’re like me you’ll find yourself singing along to songs you haven’t heard in ages. Even my daughter stopped crying when I put this CD in!
