Seal is an anomaly. His first effort to date has been his best. The song "Crazy" saturated the airwaves of FM play in the early 90's, for good reason. It's still infectious pop and carries a good message to boot.
With that said, Seal's "Seal" runs the risk of becoming dated and a difficult sound to transcend time. Though, his subsequent efforts have ensured that he was relegated to one-hit wonder, "Seal" remains the one CD of his to buy if you must become a owner of the "Seal" sound.
In attempts to portray his music, I would have to say part Vegas lounge lizard, disco-pop, tossed with New Age awakening lyrics, and some ambient synth thrown in there. He indeed has talent, but not the talent of say a Prince. The real draw here still remains the song, "Crazy," and its lyrical message, "Yeah, we're never going to survive unless we get a little crazy."
Here, here preacher man. Let's get the martini's rolling in this here lounge, let the disco ball spin, new age guru away. Sealed in time.

There are quite a good number of fantastic debut albums that have always been the best album by a lot of artists but to me, Seal's self-titled debut album is arguably the best debut album by any artist in my opinion. Released in 1991, this album pushed the boundaries of dance/pop/soul and even some hip hop and resulted in what I consider the most innovative, sophisticated dance album ever made and this album is fighting head to head against it's 1994 follow-up oddly also entitled "Seal" as Seal's strongest collection of music. It's still impossible to believe that this album was actually released in 1991 as every song is so many years ahead of it's time and this album hasn't dated one bit even in 2003! Talent has become exceedingly rare these days but even back in 1991 when talent and music was far better, Seal's debut stood so many miles above all other albums around this time for many reasons: It's blend of dance, rock, and pop perfectly suits the mainstream crowd yet at the same time, it also has the maturity and brilliance that makes it last all the way to this very day. This album has defined a long period in my life from 1992 onwards. This album stands out in so many ways from any other album from this time and even from his other albums. One reason is its rich atmospheric mood; another is its urban dance vibe, and just the general mood of this album: Dark, moody, yet highly energetic and edgy.
"The Beginning" is the most appropriate title for the opening track on this album. This is a fabulous blend of dance, techno, pop, and soul with a slightly orchestral sound to it and aggressive driving rhythm. "Deep Water" is like two songs in one.

I hate long reviews so I'll keep this one brief.
There are very few CD's that I'd buy 3 times, however I have bought this Seal release for a third time. I won't lose this copy!!
Every song on this CD captures a moment of my life. From high school through grad school to tonight. I used to listen to it before pitching in a big baseball game! I would listen to it while studying for a big test! Of course I'd play it on a date to impress the girl!!........ and I'd play it again when trying to get over that girl :(
I do not care much for any of Seal's other releases. Buy this one and if you don't like it, list it on ebay! I may end up buying from you, j/k.

The thing that strikes me about SEAL is that he can make every song on an album feel completely different. Most musicians stick with a particular musical motif for the entire album, until it becomes drab and boring. But not SEAL - he stays right on top, producing one excellent song after another by keeping them very various. As another reviewer put it, there is indeed something to strike everyone's fancy. Mine was Crazy, which I first heard on the album itself (I never ever ever ever listen to the radio, although I know it made it on there).
I highly recommend this! It won't disappoint!
