Editors’ Notes

Ten Summoner’s Tales, Sting’s fifth solo release, is loose, relaxed and loaded with some of his lesser-known pop gems. Where his previous album, The Soul Cages, definitely suited a somber mood, Ten Summoner’s Tales works with just about any state of mind thanks to its strong melodies and good grooves, and its variety. There’s a mock cowboy tune with a surprise ending (“Love is Stronger Than Justice (The Munificent Seven)”), gorgeous ballads (“Fields of Gold,” “Shape of My Heart”), lighthearted, catchy fun (“Heavy Cloud, No Rain,” “She’s Too Good For Me”), and enduring pop (“If I Ever Lose My Faith in You,” “It’s Probably Me”). It also includes the classic “Epilogue (Nothing ‘Bout Me)”, a breezy melody with barbed lyrics that perfectly sums up Sting’s wit and songwriting chops. As he’s done with most of his post-Police work, Sting incorporates horns, keyboards, and strings here to flesh out the songs, creating a synthesis of pop and jazz that has become the defining element of his solo work. And his voice, as smooth and rich as ever, glides over these solid songs effortlessly. Taken as a whole, Ten Summoner’s Tales is arguably Sting’s most enduring and consistent collection of songs.

Customer Reviews

A Beautifully Crafted Album

Wonderful songs, great sound, production and musicianship. Vinnie Colaiuta's drumming stands out as absolutely brilliant. To my mind this is Sting's finest Album to date.

Definitely one for the musos, this contains some of the more technical tracks - Seven Days is in a time signature of 5/4 - but is still accessible. You'll know that a good selection of these were chart songs, and of course the incredible 'Shape of my heart' is in there. Remember the beautiful ending to the film 'Leon'? That's the tune. Overall production was excellent anyway, and it's obviously been remastered. Perhaps that's academical, being mp4 format, as opposed to CD. In my opinion the best album that Sting has made since leaving the Police.

shape of my heart

this tune is the gratest of all. you have to try it.

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...
