Luckily the two worst songs -- "Russians" and "We'll Be Together" -- are back to back.

fortress around your heart. after that, it's all bloodless, clumsy, and horrible.

Daniel, Esq., Monday, 15 March 2010 02:20 (seven years ago) Permalink

I'm very fond of at least two songs here: "All This Time" (in which he attempts Paul Simon style talk-singing with some success), and "Why Should I Cry For You," the best vehicle for his smugness.

The Magnificent Colin Firth (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Monday, 15 March 2010 02:22 (seven years ago) Permalink

"Fragile" isn't bad either (Neil Tennant loves it). But, egad, I heard "We'll Be Together" at a BBQ today -- one of the few times a songwriter makes you feel his contempt for writing hit singles.

The Magnificent Colin Firth (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Monday, 15 March 2010 02:23 (seven years ago) Permalink

Songs like that and "Be Still My Beating Heart" remind me of a certain groping towards elegant melancholy that I wanted to learn more about, fitfully. It makes me think of Bryan Ferry's "Is Your Love Strong Enough," Pet Shop Boys' "Rent," songs from my high school years that suggested something other, something else.

xpost And I wrote that before Alfred noted Tennant enjoyed "Fragile!"

Ned Raggett, Monday, 15 March 2010 02:25 (seven years ago) Permalink

Good call, Ned: "Be Still My Beating Heart" is real good adult contemporary.

Speaking of Bryan Ferry, I wonder if he and Sting shared a target audience in the late eighties. I own the first three Sting releases, and one of the weird quirks about Billboard's "modern rock" chart is allowing "All This Time" to chart in '91, which makes sense: college students listened to El Stingo through '94 at least.

Arriba.

Besides, the passion:

We'd only stopped for a few burritos
But they told us of the trouble with los banditos
A poor little town in need of aid
My brothers and me had never been afraid
The age of chivalry is not dead
Lonesome nights in a cowboy bed
There’d be a bride for every man
Who chased away the evil gang
Love is stronger than justice
Love is thicker than blood
Love, love, love is stronger than justice
Love is a big fat river in flood

I think a cogent argument could be made for the entirety of Ten Summoner's Tales being the worst lyrics by anyone, anywhere.

Ned Raggett, Monday, 15 March 2010 02:43 (seven years ago) Permalink

Consider:

Turned on the weather man just after the news
I needed sweet rain to wash away my blues
He looked at the chart but he look in vain
Heavy cloud but no rain

Back in time with Louis XVI
At the court of the people he was number one
He'd be the bluest blood they'd ever seen
When the king said hi to the guillotine
The royal astrologer was run out of breath
He thought that maybe the rain would postpone his death
He look in sky but he look in vain
Heavy cloud but no rain

Well the land was cracking and the river was dry
All the crops were dying when they ought to be high
So to save his farm from the banker's draft
The farmer took out a book on some old witchcraft
He made a spell and a potion on a midsummer's night
He killed a brindled calf in the pale moonlight
He prayed to the sky but he prayed in vain
Heavy cloud but no rain

Ned Raggett, Monday, 15 March 2010 02:45 (seven years ago) Permalink

The operating theory here seems to be that Sting noticed that David Bowie said he liked the Pixies and then wondered if he himself could do something like that but have it be not so weird.

Sting can put together some nice chord progressions and melody, but the guy took all of the balls out of the rhythm section during his solo career (maybe the first album excepted). Being a kid that loved the Police, it was weird being a fan that slowly became repulsed. I suppose people that dug the Faces and the Jeff Beck Group probably had a similar feeling with Rod Stewart (but at least the change was blatent and he was fun).

I guess "All This Time", though I remember being surprised by how much play it got on my local "alt rock" station at the time. But I shouldn't have been: they heavily promoted Peter Gabriel's Us at the time, and Sarah McLaughlin, both in a similar adult-y neighborhood I think.

Didn't vote, but would have added one more to "Be Still My Beating Heart." It helped, during my senior year of high school, to not know that expression, much less be aware it was literary, and I loved Andy's guitar and the beat and sound. Also, I never cared as much about lyrics as most people. Also, I was super depressed.

Pete Scholtes, Monday, 22 March 2010 04:23 (seven years ago) Permalink

one year passes...

Been getting back into the Bring on the Night live album, which was just reissued a couple years back. it's Sting with the famous jazz band that played on Blue Turtles, and it's actually really good, much better than any of his studio albums. It's split between Police tunes and his solo stuff. The Police tunes in particular get some pretty interesting workouts. The most notable thing about it is that there's almost nothing on there that was a hit - only "Moon Over Bourbon Street" which wasn't even really a big one. Instead he focuses on stuff like "Demolition Man", "Bring on the Night", and some obscure Police tunes like "Low Life" and "I Burn For You". Some of it is quite dated - there's a ridiculous rap on the first track, and way too much clarinet overall, but this is really a great live set!!

Hard to believe he turns 60 this year!!

Sting is often silly, often insufferable. But for all his peaks and valleys - and each of those"silly"/"insufferable" descriptions can be assigned to both his highs and lows - I've always come back to "... Nothing Like the Sun" as a particularly melancholy bit of soft rock. Everything is so drifty and dreamy, even the Hendrix cover is slow and sad. It's got its goofy pop moments and stuff, but it's surprisingly diverse and adventurous. And sometimes playfully weird.

Soul Cages I liked at the time, but it's pretty dull compared to " ... Nothing ..." First album is just so po-faced I can't really get with it. Saw him tour behind "Ten Summoners" and he was great; dirt floor bullfighting arena in Spain! But I've seen him maybe three times since then for work, and he was soooooooo boring. Well, the most recent one was OK. But at the end he brings out his little step-stool. puts his foot up and busts out his nylon string guitar, then proceeds to fuck up "Message in a Bottle." Because it's hard, Sting. That's why you had ringers like Andy Summers play it, not you.

'If I Ever Lose My Faith In You' still remains my favourite solo Sting song, and Ten Summoner's Tales still remains the only Sting album that I would gladly listen to if I had to listen to a Sting album. 'Saint Augustine In Hell' still brings a smile to my face, particularly the part where the guy comes in playing the devil and explains the type of people that hell is full of... "Certified accountants, music critics, they're all here!" hehehehe...

Funny, that "St. Augustine" song to me is some kind of nadir, where his smugness can't be contained in song and bursts out in monologue.

Fields of Gold sounds better the older it (and he) gets.

dinnerboat, Tuesday, 13 September 2016 16:32 (one year ago) Permalink

I'm a fan of "The Soul Cages" and "Nothing Like the Sun," the latter an awesome adult contemporary work of ace session players. Don't remember much of "Ten Summoner's Tales.". Don't know anything really from the following albums except "Mercury Falling" (which he keeps playing to let his backing vocalist show off) and "I Hung My Head," which is really great by Sting and also the version by Johnny Cash.

From the looks of this set, the only two songs I don't recognize are "When We Dance" and "The Cowboy Song" (?). Want to say the only one I don't like is "Russians," and even that one I think is just a bad idea, badly written, but not really bad to listen to, as long as you barely listen to it.

Saw him this year with Peter Gabriel and he was in better form/spirits than any other time I'd seen him recently.

The Soul Cages is one of those records I'm surprised to like. Concept album + Stingo + Stingo writing about dead dad + no rock? But its gravity and stateliness has real warmth too.

From the looks of this set, the only two songs I don't recognize are "When We Dance" and "The Cowboy Song" (?).

those two were both collector bait, though I will admit "When We Dance" is as pretty a song as Sting ever did ("This Cowboy Song" pretty much bites it though)

I dug a number of songs from TST - "Everybody Laughed But You" and "Something The Boy Said" both seemed pretty good for album tracks. But yeah it's too much of a wine n' cheese album for me. Sadly his last kinda good one though I'm willing to give Mercury Falling another shot.

frogbs, Tuesday, 13 September 2016 18:21 (one year ago) Permalink

The drop off with Mercury Falling was palpable. TST had been such a consolidation of his entire solo career to that point – with rousing singles ("If I Ever..."), smooth Nothing Like the Sun ballads ("Fields of Gold," "It's Probably Me"), the usual hamfisted attempts at humor ("Cowboy Song," "Saint Augustine in Hell"), Blue Turtles jazzbo ("Heavy Clouds"), and TSG-like ethereal-ness ("Something the Boy Said"), but with a warmth few of those records had achieved. My memory was that he recorded TST in his home/castle with windows wide open and his kids running around. It shows. As a friend of mine said at the time, the only real weak spot of the record was that the bridges on these songs were kinda forgettable.

It doesn't quite hold up the way it did then. But it is almost certainly the best record he made.

Naive Teen Idol, Friday, 16 September 2016 12:51 (one year ago) Permalink

Should add that Blue Turtles is probably a close second on tunes alone. "We Work the Black Seam," "Children's Crusade," and "Fortress Around Your Heart" are as melodically solid as anything he ever wrote but the Synclavier jazz arrangements and high school earnestness of the lyrics drag them all down.

Bring On the Night is a bit of an improvement, as his band around then (particularly Omar Hakim and Kenny Kirkland, RIP) def. took the material if not to another level at least another place. "When the World Is Running Down" in particular is completely transformed.

Naive Teen Idol, Friday, 16 September 2016 13:11 (one year ago) Permalink

yeah Bring on the Night is really great, definitely the best Sting solo release (IMO), even better because it intentionally seems to skip the hits. even The Police songs they trot out are relatively obscure.

I think you can generally gauge Sting's pretentiousness by whether or not he is playing guitar. He's a lot more comfortable on bass. He was having a blast playing with Peter Gabriel.
