EDITORS’ NOTES

There’s something unreal about Seal. His instantly recognizable voice only gets stronger and more charismatic with age. On 7 he reunites with producer Trevor Horn, the architect of “Crazy” and “Kiss From a Rose.” Together they enjoy after-hours scenery on “Padded Cell,” “Monascow,” and “Life on a Dancefloor”—all outfitted with contemporary curves. That's well and good, but it’s ballads people expect and Seal delivers: “Half a Heart” and “The Big Love Has Died” are self-referential showstoppers, with Horn building an epic battleground for Seal’s emotional fight songs. “Love” wraps up past lessons learned to a spare track with trademark intensity. 7 shows that Seal exists on an elevated plain separating extraordinary balladeers from ordinary ones.

The Return of SEAL with TREVOR HORN

I should say, the triumphant return of this brilliant duo. At first listen, each track has one or more hooks and great melodies. Can't wait to listen to this, in depth. What a fantastic return to form. Now..if we can just get Elton John to pick up the phone and call Paul Buckmaster...
