Sting Live

Sting's ...all this time, as most know, is a live album recorded in the singer's villa in Italy on the night of Sept. 11, 2001. The decision to actually go through with the show was last minute, and what a decision it was. The songs for this live album have all been rearranged, some to the point where you cannot recognize the song until Sting actually starts singing. Most of the time it works, but sometimes it doesn't. Fragile, the usual closer, appropriately opened the show and the somber mood continued with a beautiful rendition of A thousand years, which is sadly missing from the online store. I suggest buying this album in its entirely as that is the strongest and one of the most heartfelt tracks on this album. The strength of this album is in the renditions of classic Sting songs. Some are not altered but are still perfomed great - Fields of Gold is one of those. Other songs are brought back from the past and given a brand new life - Don't stand so close to me and Roxanne. Set them free and Brand New Day lack the punch of the originals; the new arrangements don't do the songs justice. Overall, a very strong Sting album with some amazing rearrangements and performances of Sting classics.

Remarkable music, but inexplicable iTunes decisions

Backed by The Police or out on his own, the enigmatic Sting has been writing and performing music since the late 70s, and perhaps now, 30 years later, has come into his voice in a way that few others of his genre and era can claim (Annie Lenox may be one of the few), as exemplified by this masterful collection of live somgs performed in 2001 (in Italy, I believe). The fact that Sting can still find his nuances and phrases in his work-- especially older pieces, like the ubiquitous Roxanne-- speak to his integrity and brilliance. But iTunes has me baffled-- this version has track 2 ("1000 songs") removed. The Japanese release also contains "Seven Days," "Mad About You" and "Shape of My Heart." This is a gorgeous albumn, entrely listenable, but one of the few times I recommend jumping over to Amazon to purchase the concert in its entirety. Price is about equivalent (less cost of shipping), which may have been a motivating factor. But this is nonetheless a superb album from a performer who, frankly, I think is preferable in the live domain. Pick up his new recording of the great standard "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life?" with lush trumpeter CHris Botti peforming wonderful solos. It's classic performances like these that make Rod Stewart's attempt at the American Songbook such an embrassment. Song by song or ordered in it s entirety, this is a truly wonderful album... right down to the sparse acoustics and perfect mastering.

Great concert

This was a great concert. However, I'm torn between the CD version (represented by these samples) and the DVD (with its 5.1 Dolby Digital mix). The DVD seems to have more of a live feel to it, whereas the samples sound more like studio mixes without as much echo and 'liveness'. Plus, the DVD includes 3 bonus tracks, one of which is Every Little Thing She Does is Magic, one of my favorites. Regardless, you should buy this concert somehow.

After disbanding the Police at the peak of their popularity in 1984, Sting quickly established himself as a viable solo artist, one obsessed with expanding the boundaries of pop music. Sting incorporated heavy elements of jazz, classical, and worldbeat into his music, writing lyrics that were literate and self-consciously meaningful, and he was never afraid to emphasize this fact in the press. For such unabashed ambition, he was equally loved and reviled, with supporters believing that he was at...
