Seal is a British soul and R&B, Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum singer-songwriter. His music has garnered many accolades and awards. He has a unique husky baritone voice that fans like my husband and I love.
7 is his 9th studio album and 7th full length album is set to be released on 6 November 2015 by Warner Bros. Records. I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy to listen to and review. Seal explores the emotion of love in this album and all its complexities, eccentricities, and connections. To properly discover and accomplish the story of the words and music he reunited with his producer Trevor Horn.
As Seal puts it, “I tried to capture all of the wonderfully different dynamics of love, whether it’s the anger, the acceptance, the bliss, the sadness, the elation, or the recklessness. It’s this emotion and the ways it makes us feel. It’s about the extreme joy and the extreme regret as well as all of the crazy things love makes us do.”
This album is passionate, deep, profound, and sincere. Seal soulfully sings about the emotion love in multiple different ways that I believe are very identifiable with its listeners. The feelings in this album are really strong and the connection is very deep. My favorite songs on this album are Every Time I'm With You, The Big Love Has Died, and Love. Along with Seal's rich voice, I love the piano in Every Time I'm With You. The message is beautiful as well. The Big Love Has Died is a bit heart wrenching, but definitely relatable to anyone who has lost love. Love is my absolute favorite song on this album. Its climactic culmination in just voice and piano is the perfect ending to this album.
