Product Description

Amazon.ca

After five years and one do-over later, Seal presents a fourth album that finds the singer growing with his audience. The disc’s opener, "Get It Together," melds a quiet "live" moment into a horn-and-string disco number, setting the stage for the rest of the disc, which is largely a nod to Detroit- and Philly-R&B. The British-born musician pulls it off. His rasp and emotive, positive vocals are well suited for the retro stylings he attempts. "Waiting for You" will flood the dance floor, and he’s unafraid to dig deep for the ballads--Marvin Gaye would approve. The funk is real, but saddled with a pop safety net, and the upbeat tracks need a helping hand from a good remixer before they are as compelling as his seminal singles "Killer" and "Crazy." Seal never goes all out in any direction and this coolness, combined with Trevor Horn’s perfectionist production, plants the album inescapably in the realm of adult contemporary (although this is as good as adult contemporary gets). On "Let Me Roll" Seal salutes the album’s influences by proclaiming he’s "not too proud to beg." If that were actually true, the songs would have been that much better for it. --Beth Massa

5.0 out of 5 stars Seal Does It Again July 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
It seems that anything Seal sings is destined to be good, and IV is no different. Like his three previous albums the music is top quality, dominated by Seal's powerful voice. The cuts vary from up-tempo R&B to soft ballads. This album is right in the middle of Seal's ability, and although he doesn't reach to try something radically new it is still a great listen.
From the opening notes of piano and Seal's voice on "Get It Together" it is easy to hear this album is worthwhile. Starting with the upbeat dance feel tune of vocal gymnastics, Seal rushes back to the scene. "My Vision" is classic Seal letting his voice carry the beginning of the tune, as the accompaniment is barely noticeable before they jump in with force. The music experiments with different levels of intensity all held together by Seal's voice. He gets back into more R&B sounds with "Let Me Roll." His slow stuff is good too, but how could it not be with a voice like his. "Don't Make Me Wait" is soft yet powerful, and "Love's Divine" follows suit.
Let's face it, we buy Seal albums for his voice. His is one of the best in the business, and even if he played the same music over and over and only changed how he sang, we'd buy it too. The music is the canvas on which he uses his voice to paint vivid pictures of soul and feeling. If you're a Seal fan, this album is definitely worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Music that fits the night like a glove May 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
OK, here's the situation: You're having your sweetheart over for a candlelight dinner and all your Bryan Ferry CD's are worn out. Not to fear: Seal is here!
This set of 12 sleek, suave, sensual songs finds Seal ready to assume the mantle of master purveyor of music to get lai - er, music to romance by. With his velvet voice and Trevor Horn's scintillating production, Seal continues to deliver music that fits the night like a glove.
Seal offers his trademark, genre-busting hybrid of R&B, dance, soft rock, and adult alternative. Though nothing here shines on the magnitude of "Crazy" or "Don't Cry", or even "Kiss from a Rose" or "Future Love Paradise," everything shimmers with quality. Highlights include the pulsating "My Vision," the atmospheric ballads "Love Divine" and "Touch," the reggae-flavored "Gold" and the funky "Let Me Roll." Seal's voice and Horn's production breathe life into some tracks that could have been filler on anyone else's record, such as the generic, Carole King-esque "Don't Make Me Wait". Inevitably (as with all Seal records) "Seal IV" eventually simmers down into adult contemporary territory; the last few songs are super-mellow. But by then, Seal's already done his job - the rest is up to you!

4.0 out of 5 stars Springing from a sad & lonely piano May 12 2004
By PhiloX
Format:Audio CD
Walking through our local shopping mall into one of the larger catalog stores, the TV overheads were playing the typical hip-hop "I love you baby because you dance so fine..." You know the song, one of thousands of commercialized products rehashing the same lyrics. I thought to myself "If I were to write a song it would be about the universal sufferance of humanity & the salvation of personal responsibility springing from a sad & lonely piano." Then to my surprise, that sad & lonely piano sounded from the TV overhead. I looked up & saw a man singing about human tragedy, forgiveness, & divine love with a scar on his right cheek..."That's Seal, I read somewhere that he was good but I never listen to pop radio, I got to get his newest CD..." I am glad I did, this is fantastic pop with serious & intelligent lyrics covering many musical styles from Disco, Funk, & R & B that goes beyond the normal "Formula" with jazz hooks & great production. Therefore if you want something that most will recognize but with added class, give this CD a spin.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great music. Period. April 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is an album which reveals more pleasures with each subsequent listen, not unlike his first two albums. I would have given it three stars after a single listen, but having spent some time with it (now on an amazing DVD-A), this jewel is shining brighter.
I thought "Human Beings" was a tad boring, but THIS disc starts off with four solid tunes straight off the top.
Seal and Trevor Horn have a relationship like Michael Jackson & Quincy Jones...a particular producer who brings out only the best of a particular performer.
"Get It Together", "My Vision"...heck, it ALL soars like great Seal records should.
If you're wondering where our new Marvin Gaye, our new Stevie Wonder, our new male classic R&B soul god is, he's right here.
This isn't the best place to start if you're curious about Seal as an artist (try albums #1 or #2), but I guarantee you that if you are interested in ANY of his works, you'll like this one.
You'll need this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only the voice is still there... April 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
It's, of course, official. Seal's best days are fading way into the past and the only evidence remaining of the peaks he'd once achieved is the voice which is still there.
Alas, unless you can be satisfied only upon hearing a good voice, regardless of how poor the songs are, this is hardly enough.
This is an album filled with overwhlemingly boring ballads aimed i'm not sure at whom. The overall result is like the music you hear when you're pacing through the isles of a supermarket.
Occasionally, even in a supermarket you'll hear a good tune but you are there to shop and the tune is there to assist you:
"relaaaaaaaaax, buy that can of tuna and that new improved -but not really- detergent"..
Much the same is the offering here. Relax. Buy the new improved -but not really- Seal album.
Sad, when one remembers those flashes of brilliance like in Seal's debut album with "Killer" and "Crazy" but also a few shinings here and there in the subsequent albums. It seems that those moments are buried like a hatchet and I'm not so sure Seal knows where the burial site is...
