Editorial Reviews

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible! Absolutely incredible! August 1, 2003
Format:Audio CD
There are a very good number of pop albums out there that absolutely are extremely creative and highly intelligent with miles and miles of depth and thought-provoking lyrics and moody music. Seal's second self-titled album is one of those albums that has it all: substance, depth, enjoyability, excellent production, and timeless quality, all of these to an extreme level. Building upon the talents that came blasting through on his spectacular debut, the house dance elements that defined that awesome debut, are for the most part, replaced by a much more soulful blend of pop, R&B, and even occasional New Age elements on some of the songs.
I got my first dose of Seal's incredible music in the summer of 1994 when I was just 11 and first heard "Prayer For The Dying" on the radio back when this album was new and before then, I never even heard of him but later on when I first heard the whole album in the car on a trip and when "Kiss From A Rose" became a giant hit on the charts, I was instantly a fan for life. I loved his music when I first heard it when I was 11 and today, his music has gotten even better with age. I can remember a whole bunch of alternative rock artists that I loved during the tail end of the grunge era just before it winded down in 1995 and then the fads came along for the next few years which I enjoyed for a short period of time but later became embarrassed at hearing later on as I matured. Seal's music however is not one of those passing fads. His music has such a mature and highly fluid quality that makes all of the music that he has composed stand up ot the passing years and both this and his debut albums are classics and albums that I feel I need to have in order to survive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never Stops Growing July 19, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I'm not the kind of person the music industry likes to see.
I'm not likely to go out and buy the latest Pearl Jam just as it rolls into the mall - quite the contrary, actually. My usual CD purchases tend to be releases so old the artist in question has stopped recording by now. Or worse, in the case of Jim Croce or Karen Carpenter. I did buy Michael Jackson's Thriller -- over a decade after its release. Also Meatloaf's Bat Out of Hell -- a good eight years after it came out. I hear songs on the radio, and if they catch my ear while they're hot, and then later, maybe years later, they STILL grab me when they come on, well, ok. It's time to buy that one.
And so it was with SEAL II. Of course I had heard Kiss from a Rose, who hasn't? And Don't Cry as well, both of these songs were grabbers, hooking me in on their non-traditional chord progression structure. So I bought SEAL II one day, among a few other CDs I had held out on a while.
I can remember playing tracks 4-6 a lot at first, after all I knew 4 and 6 and Fast Changes between quickly became quite listenable. But something marvelous happened as I gave the other tracks more and more play, over time: ALL of them grabbed me. In each track there was more you could hear, in the lush orchestrations or the odd percussions, with every hearing. Not that everything isn't supporting roles for Seal's voice -- it is, and justifiably so. The clarity, power, SOUL of that voice, comfortable in either high or low range and always full of intense sincerity, should be the showcase and it always is. But I came to realize, on the 10th or 15th playing of track 3 (Metaphors) that everything else underneath is also exquisitely perfected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Talented beyond comparison. May 28, 2002
By Eduardo
Format:Audio CD
Seal is, by far, the most talented artist I've ever heard. His last album debuted in 1994 -- I'm writing this review in 2002. His voice is sweetly beautiful, and has no match. His music is vague and soulful, but without the canned mysticism that haunts other wanna-be singers.
I have never, and will never, be awestruck when I see a celebrity. Madonna's pathetic, the boy bands are a passing fad, Britney Spears will be selling herself for money (as if she isn't already) in a couple years. But Seal is the one man who could completely capture my attention and, dare I say it, worship, with his voice -- let alone a live concert, which I would kill to go to. I don't rate him according to other musicians, I hold him up to others as the ideal they should become.
The tracks that make this album stand out are "Don't Cry," "Kiss From A Rose," and "Dreaming In Metaphor." The rest are incredible, too, but these three are what I listen for. I admit that I'm an mp3 downloader, but when I hear music I truly respect -- which is rare -- I buy the CD. Seal is one of the only one albums I've bought, and I will never regret the money I spent on it; I only wish more of it could go to Seal.

A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
First off, this isn't the kind of thing that I usually listen to- nearly everything in my CD case is either heavy metal or progressive rock, and Seal comes nowhere near to either of those. But this is music awesome enough to transcend genre boundaries, and I'd recommend it to the most dyed-in-the-wool metalhead, or the hickiest country fan, for that matter. Seal is a vocalist of tremendous gift and skill, with pipes worthy of Peter Gabriel and enunciation that brings to mind the very best R&B. His songs are beautiful, deep, poetic, and heartfelt. And the production on this album is gorgeous- a layer of sound that manages to be sweet without being saccharine, intricate without being overproduced, and soothing without losing its edge. Pure music, regardless of what you call it, and one of my favorite albums- even if I do file it in between Prong and Skinny Puppy.
