iTunes Review

Sting’s ageless voice makes “I Can’t Stop Thinking About You” a gift for any fan of The Police’s athletic and erudite power pop, but his life experience opens new possibilities on his 12th solo album. While “50,000” forms a eulogy for all the musical legends lost in 2016, “Hearing South on the Great North Road” finds unadorned British folk songs lurking in the soul of this former punk.

Customer Reviews

Disappointed...

I'm a die-hard Sting fan. I've bought most of his music, since he was the lead for The Police. I was immediately excited to see a new album, 57th and 9th, is imminent. But after listening to the first track, my hopes were dashed. The sound is energetic, but the actual melody is formulaic in a desperately boring boys-band way. Sting himself sounds overly processed and electronic. The Last Ship was a let-down. 57th and 9th looks even less promising at this point.

loud and compressed..

I don't get it. are these old rockers becoming totally deaf?! i mean, sting used to be a sensitive guy.. yep, he even did an album with a lute player, and he's never been totally out of touch with more jazzy loose projects…but if this song is an indication of how the album's going to sound…well…terribly disappointing! It's so blasting loud and such a compressed sound! just like mccartney on "New" or "Memory almost full"…it kills the music completely! sowing machine stuff… trying to appeal to a younger generation. sad.

Disappointing So Far

I am a die-hard Sting fan-I've bought every album, gone to every concert I could, even went to see The Last Ship when he was on Broadway, just to support the show. Presumably, these first two tracks are what he consideres to be his best. If so, that's disappointing, because the first one is musically and lyrically shallow and not up to his usual work. The second one is just depressing-sounding. These two songs seem very personal--the first about his struggle to write a hit song, the second about a fading rock star looking back at the peaks of his career. Sad. I hope the rest of the album is better than these two, but I'm not optimistic.

Biography

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

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...
