I had a chance to listen to a restricted release copy of Seal's new album "System" once before I had to jump on a plane to Las Vegas yesterday.
I took to the CD with me to write up a Sneak Peek review, but the CD will not play on my laptop, the CD player here in my hotel room or even in CD player of my rental car! I get the point of watermarked, restricted CD copies, but this is a little silly. It shouldn't be this hard to get a CD to play. I get watermarked discs often, but this Seal one seems to be particularly stubborn.
In any event, it is sounding pretty good, a lot more dance-oriented than his previous two albums, but I don't want to draw any conclusion until I hear it at least one more time. I can tell you that the song "The Right Life" will be the next single from the album that follows Seal's current single "Amazing."
