I'm just listening to Seal's amazing "Soul" album and just wanted to share it with everyone. I saw him perform his "A Change is Gonna Come" on Jay Leno recently, it's a remake of the original by Sam Cooke and it's remarkable. This entire album is soul music, very moving, very passionate, and just wonderful. The album was created in partnership with David Foster.

Quoting cutiebooty:

Hi Ready...We bought the album too and love it,especially I can't stand the rain and Knock on wood. Was a little disappointed there was no new material on there but that often happens, on albums released at Christmas. It was the same with the new Leona Lewis album and Rihanna's one too.


Hey cutiebooty!

Happy New Year to you!¿ I'm glad you enjoyed the CD, those are great songs too that you mention, in fact, there isn't a single song on there that I don't like.¿ You're quite right that many artists repeat some of their previous hits, but I did find the whole feel of this album to be a feel good experience regardless.¿

I heard Seal say that his redo of "A Change is Gonna Come" felt to him, very relevant considering the state of the world at present.¿ He also mentioned Barack's new Presidency and how appropriate this song would be for that too.¿ He's a performer we don't see the likes of much more.

I love Leona Lewis too!¿ There are so many great artists out there, and one of my goals for this year is to explore more the wonderful world of music again.¿ It's such a simple thing one can do to lift their spirits and such a moving, enjoyable experience.¿ One thing I am thankful for is great music!

Quoting SunshineNJ:

I'm a HUGE fan of Seal and just purchased the new CD "Soul." I have to say I'm a bit disappointed that there are so many remakes on this CD. Ready, if you enjoy this CD, try Seal IV. That's my favorite by far.


Hey SunshineNJ!

I too love Seal, looks like most on here don't lol!  Either way, I just got passionate about his 2 newer songs and blogged.  I have a few of his CD's and know quite a few of the songs on this Soul album are repeats, but I still enjoy the overall selection of all the soul songs on here.

I don't have Seal IV but will check it out, so thanks for your post!  Hope you have a great New Year's!!

Well ... well ... well! I heard back from Customer Service at MM regarding why my initial blog comment had been removed. It has now been restored minus the reference to the search engine I mentioned. Here is my email to MM Customer Service: My other blog "Fantastic new Seal Album" had the original opening comment removed,but did not post a URL, I did mention to g**gle Seal's song "A Change is Gonna Come" and that's the only reason I can think for it being removed. Here is the reply I got back: Dear member, Thanks for your email. The original comment is pending for approval. Please do not mention g**gle in any message (I have inserted asterisks so it's not removed again lol!). We have changed and approved it again. Please check it out. Seems that my original comment dated Dec. 12th is "pending", not quite sure what that's all about, but it would appear not only are we not allowed to post URL's, which I was aware of and had not done, but John at MM had said we could post site names if they were not of a competitive nature. The search engine I mentioned is most definitely not a competitor. My initial reason for posting was to share my passion for this newly released album, now I wonder why even bother??? Go figure :(

I decided to wait a day or two to see whether my original comment would reappear as did my other blog that disappeared. I believe I did edit some spelling errors a few times, in the past this used to cause the blog to disappear for up to 2 days. I didn't post a URL in my original post, but did mention a search engine (heaven forbid!) and the album name, which is Soul. It never ceases to amaze me what MM allows to remain on here and what they remove. They used to just remove URL's, now it appears they remove the entire post.

Hey Queen! Thanks for your post! Am so glad you had a chance to listen, Seal is a British artist, has an interesting background. The passion he exudes when performing is just lovely to watch. I find his voice so sexy and so full of emotion. The 5th track on his Soul CD is "I've Been Loving you Too Long" and it's phenomenal too. The more I listen to this CD, the more I love it!

I did take the time to listen to this on utube. I had never heard their music before. You are right. It is great music. Thank you for sharing this...
