In rating this album, I was between 3 - 4 stars. It isn't a 3 star album because it does have some great songs on it, yet it barely (for me at least) scores a perfect 4 star rating. This album is a good album, though it isn't the strongest I've ever heard. The first half is stronger than the second half with hits I love such as "Get It Together", "Waiting for you", "Don't Make Me Wait", and "Let Me Roll". "Love's Divine" is OK, 3 stars but I think the above mentioned selections overshadow it. The rest of the songs are OK, not what I consider huge hits, but OK. I admire the fact that Seal, like Prince, Lenny Kravitz, and Alicia Keys does help/writes his own songs. Personally, I recommend this album. 3 1/2 stars I think is appropriate.
