ZANG TUMMM TUMB ARTICLES “the first draft of history”

Seal (ZTT)


Singles apart, this is a uniformly average piece of vinyl. After last years smasheroonies, the future boded well for Seal, and he possibly shocked a lot of people whod written him off as a ‘featuring artist. But this really is a disappointment. Why? In a way, the singles have almost been too brilliant for Seals own good. You expect tracks of equal wondrousness and unfortunately theyre not forthcoming here. For some unknown reason, everyone seemed to be desperate for this album to be brilliant. I know I was. It will be huge, however.
