Cathartic; intelligent

This is actually one of Stings better albums, though I think it gets overlooked. It’s more somber, akin to Soul Cages, and while there are some uplifting tunes on here, finishing this CD all the way through feels like going through a cathartic experience. It’s all over the place genre wise, from jazzy to poppy to classical to country-ish in parts. The constant is that it’s, well, catchy music, and intelligent. If you to want lump Sting in with “easy listening”, you’re dead wrong, though I suspect if you’re looking at this review you know that already.
