With quality albums by talented artists, there really isn't much to say other than, 'buy this and be happy.' And, if you are a fan of Seal's past work, that is all that needs to be said here. 'Human Being' is another great album from one of the great talents today has to offer. However, if you are unfamiliar with Seal and what he can do, perhaps you'll need a little motivation before you pull the trigger on Seal's third album. Therefore, here are five.

One, Seal may take his time putting out an album (his second album was released in 1994), but when he does it is, tight, concise, and timely. Two, this album is recorded, mixed, and mastered to almost reference quality. Three, he hasn't been called the second-coming of Marvin Gaye and the male Sade for no reason. Four, he preceded both Maxwell and D'Angelo and, while all their styles may vary, R&B and certainly pop wouldn't have been ready for the latter without the former. Five, Seal continually shows growth and maturity with every album he's put out; 'Human Being' is being released seven years after his debut. We could go on, yet, you only needed a little motivation to buy this album, right?
