Seal launched his career in 1990 with "Crazy," a seductive single that combined a futuristic dance groove with a commanding, soulful vocal -- and a hook that's hard to shake after even the briefest exposure. "Crazy" was the result of a collaboration between Seal and producer Trevor Horn, best known for masterminding Frankie Goes to Hollywood's '80s epic, "Relax." But unlike Frankie, Seal was a talent with depth, emotion, and tremendous charisma. Seal's performances are striking against Horn's meticulously manufactured settings, but it's clear his vocals would have the same effect if he were accompanied only by an acoustic guitar. This album, not to be confused with his more gently atmospheric follow-up, also called Seal, contains "Killer," a track Seal originally recorded with dance act Adamski -- and which first brought the singer to Horn's attention. "Future Love Paradise" is in some ways superior to "Crazy"; it's a haunting track with a downright messianic vocal performance. All this could simply have been trendy ear-candy with a lesser singer, but Seal brings warmth, heart, sophistication, and tremendous personality to all the high-tech splendor.
