Soul 2

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
On 2008's Soul, Seal went through the '60s soulbook with the assistance of producer David Foster.

While that might not make for especially compelling listening, it's certainly pleasant either as nostalgia or as high-end lifestyle music.
