Overview

Seal 6: Commitment

Seal's sixth studio album, Seal 6: Commitment, finds the London-born three-time Grammy Award winner re-teaming with renowned maestro David Foster, who also produced 2008's Soul. The first single on Commitment is "Secret," a deeply moving, string-laden ballad, that ranks among Seal's finest love songs.

"I asked David to produce Commitment because quite simply, he's the most incredible person I've worked with in the studio for a very long time," Seal says. "He's one of a kind. I don't think there's an arranger and producer anywhere on the planet who can do what he does."

Foster is equally complimentary of Seal. "His voice is so unique and he has such command -- his tone and musicality are unequaled," Foster says, adding that Seal was on a mission while in the studio making Commitment. "He was in fearless, relentless pursuit of greatness -- no one was going to obscure his path. The album is full of beautiful musical surprises and his songwriting has never been better. He says it may be his best work yet and I think he may be right."

"When all things in your life begin to align in the way they have for me over the past few years, you become incredibly focused," Seal explains. "I love a challenge, and this for me, has been the greatest challenge of my career: to write an album that exceeds my own expectations."

While showcasing Seal's one-of-a-kind husky baritone, ear for unforgettable melodies, and unique lyrical point of view, songs such as "Secret," "The Weight of My Mistakes," "Best of Me," and "If I'm Any Closer" delve into the emotions surrounding love, family, and commitment, hence the title.

"Everything about my life is fully committed," he says. "I've never felt more focused on the matter at hand: My wife, my children, the family in general, my own well-being, and of course music and my career. Each one of these songs has personal meaning for me. I dug very deep and all I can hope for is that the music strikes a chord with people." From the Label

This is a well made album, consistent, heart warming and is the signature sound of Seal. Though I was a little harsh on System, both have a slightly similar tone.
