Buy “Seal – Seal – Music” Online
I grew up listening to Seal. Some of my first memories are of road trips with my parents to Palm Springs to visit grandma and this album playing. I remember when Kiss From a Rose won the Grammy for best song and I was so happy because I loved this music. The songs are so unique and catchy and the lyrics really make you think. Listening to it as an adult I’m so pleased that the songs still hold up as well as they did when I was a kid. There’s some gems on this album. My favorites are Don’t Cry, Newborn Friend and Fast Changes, though Prayer For the Dying is awesome too. My first copy of this CD disappeared from the face of the earth so I had to get it on Amazon. No reason not to get it. I still listen and love this album, It’s truly one of his best. Check it out!
Product Description Seal’s debut album created an instantaneous worldwide sensation. Seal’s second album shows a heightened artistic maturity and a deepening of his already-prodigious vocal and songwriting skills.Certified 4 times platinum by the RIAA. (5/96) Amazon.com A far deeper, more enduring outing than his spectacular 1991 debut. Producer Trevor Horn calls on a cast of dozens (including Joni Mitchell who duets on the lovely "If I Could" and the ubiquitous Jeff Beck) and channels his famous, over-the-top tendencies into a sumptious bed of sound that makes Tears for Fears sound minimal. Soulful first single "Prayer for the Dying" will set the pace, while "Kiss From A Rose" is a huge ballad. –Jeff Bateman
I originally bought this on cassette around the time it first came out. Since the cassette format has vanished, so did my listening to this album. After browsing Amazon for a few other things, this album popped up, was priced great and included MP3 tracks with the CD, so I snagged it. What’s so great about this album? Practically every song is catchy. There are intelligent, decipherable lyrics. Musicality is top-notch. Although some of the songs were over-played during their heyday (used in film and overplay on radio) making them tiresome to hear until recently, it’s a refreshing change to listen to this album from start to finish vs. the crap being released today. -Read Reviews-
This is a fantastic album that holds up well. There are really no weak songs. Very creative and well produced. Beautiful music for any occasion or party. My only criticism is that this album is really unique in Seal’s work in terms of quality. I wish there had been a long series of albums this good.
