Sting Compilation albums Best of 25 Years
Sting has been writing tunes at his peak for longer than almost anyone else around. From the flaming hot Outlandos D'amour all the way through Soul Cages, Summoner's Tales, and If On a Winter's Night, he puts out disc after disc of sophisticated, tuneful music with some of the catchiest riffs around, all without losing focus. He has expanded sideways into reinterpretation of renaissance music, and also reinterpreted some of his own music in a symphonic context. It is a lot of ground to cover in one disc, but Best of 25 years does a good job from a number of perspectives. First, the songs. Of course, since this is a "best of" disc, most everything is familiar to fans. There are so many good songs in his catalog that choosing the songs to include must have been difficult.
"If you love somebody set them free", "We'll be together", and "fragile" are all obvious choices from his seminal "Nothing like the Sun" album. The remixes are nice, but honestly don't add a ton to what you have already heard. The magnificent and spare "Soul Cages" album is represented by only one cut, but is a great one - "All this time".
Other tracks like "Fields of Gold" and "Desert Rose" are certainly high points as well, but the real joy for me was hearing the live cuts that end this compilation. "Heavy Cloud, No Rain" is such a fantastic song with a thrumming baseline, a steady beat and an interesting structure. It gets a great bluesy treatment live, and I liked it a lot. "Demolition Man", a song that I have always liked but never loved gets a really great rocking live version with the guitars up front, ringing and screaming. It sounds meatier than the studio cut, and Sting's voice is much more mature than for the studio version, and I think it sounds better. This is now my preferred version of the song
Sting Fields of Gold: The Best of Sting 1984-1994
Fields of Gold: The Best of Sting 1984-1994 is the first compilation issued by Sting. It features hit singles from his studio albums The Dream of the Blue Turtles, ...Nothing Like the Sun, The Soul Cages, and Ten Summoner's Tales.
The album features two new songs, "When We Dance" and "This Cowboy Song", which were both released as singles. An alternate version of "We'll Be Together" is also featured. While the liner notes do not mention this, the version of "Why Should I Cry for You" on this compilation differs from the one on The Soul Cages. The seventeen track international version contains five tracks not included on the fourteen track U.S. release, but does not include "Be Still My Beating Heart" or "Fortress Around Your Heart".
A good overview of Sting's radio hits and popular album tracks with only one major omission ("Mad About You"), Fields of Gold also offers three previously-unreleased songs. "This Cowboy Song" and "When We Dance" appear on no other album, while "We'll Be Together" is an alternate version. The import version of this collection offers a substantially different (and expanded) track listing, dropping "Fortress Around Your Heart," "Be Still My Beating Heart," and "Why Should I Cry for You"; and adding "Mad About You," "Nothing 'Bout Me," "Seven Days," "It's Probably Me," "Love is the Seventh Wave," and "Demolition Man." --Gavin McNett
The Very Best of... Sting & the Police
The Very Best of... Sting & The Police is a compilation album issued by Sting, and released by A&M Records. The album originally featured one new track, a remix of the 1978 song "Roxanne" by rap artist Sean "Puffy" Combs. The album was reissued in 1998 by PolyGram International with 3 additional tracks: "Seven Days", "Fragile", and "De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da".
In 2002 it was again re-released by Universal with several track changes: the songs "Let Your Soul Be Your Pilot", "Russians", and "Roxanne '97 (Puff Daddy Remix)" are omitted, with the songs "Brand New Day", "Desert Rose", and "So Lonely" in their place.
UK-only release to commemorate Sting's award for 'Outstanding Contribution to the UK Music Industry' received at the 2002 Brit Awards. A&M has repackaged 'The Very Best Of Sting & The Police,' updating it with his most recent hits 'Brand New Day' and 'Desert Rose.' This release carries a new sleeve image and includes 18 hit singles, 5 of which were number one smashes.
Sting At the Movies
I loved Sting's rendition of "My One and Only Love" from "Leaving Las Vegas" so much that I was willing to pay the rather expensive cost for this collection! I was delightully amazed and surprised that almost all of the rest of the songs are so wonderful! Sting is such a versatile and prolific artist. His versions of "oldies" (e.g., "Someone to Watch Over Me") are so breathtaking and ever so sexy! I don't consider myself a long-time Sting fan. In fact, I only have one other Sting CD. But, if he continues to sing more oldies in his oh-so-very-breathless way, I would buy all the music he makes! And, yes, when he sings "My One and Only Love" - watch out, I have to get a partner to slow-dance with! Definitely a "10" in the romantic barometer.
Sting Album Sacred Love
Sting explores his shiny, happy side on Sacred Love, adding playful touches of techno to his smooth, vaguely multi-cultural pop sound.
Like 1999's Brand New Day, Love sounds effortless and content, with expert musicians backing up Sting's gauzy revelations about love and life. The former Police frontman shakes things up here and there; DJ/producers like BT and Victor Calderone breathe life into tracks like "Never Coming Home" and "Send Your Love," while Mary J. Blige puts her smoky vocals to work on "Whenever I Say Your Name." "This War" takes a not-so-subtle shot at George W. Bush, as Sting gives his left-leaning fan base a thrill with lyrics like "Your daddy was a businessman/ and it always made good sense/ You know the war can make you rich my friend/ In dollars, pounds, and cents." Of course, Sting long ago cashed in his rebel cachet for adult contemporary oblivion. But even though this music is designed for broad appeal, it does so with the natural, unforced ease of a seasoned showman. --Matthew Cooke
