All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Seal lays bare the theme of his sixth album in its title: this record -- his first collection of original songs since 2007's System -- is all about commitment, staying true in a long-lasting love. It could also be said that Seal is committed on a professional level, not just a personal one, remaining faithful to the coolly synthesized adult contemporary soul he pioneered way back in 1991, perhaps adding a little of the big band flourishes of 2008's Soul but otherwise offering an album as consistent and familiar as its five predecessors.
