5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece in good surround 10 Mar 2004
Format:DVD Audio|Verified Purchase
I must admit that even if this album was represented in mono, it would still be rated five stars, if you ask me! This album is really a masterpiece and I recommend it to everyone who wants to step into the world of Sting's music.
From "If I Ever Lose My Faith In You" at the begining, "Fields of Gold", "Seven Days", "It's Probably Me" (slightly different version than in the Lethal Weapon movie) and "Shape of my heart", almost every song is a candidate for my TOP100 songs ever. Very smooth album which you can listen to in almost every moment - being sad, lonely, happy, nervous, this album will always give you "that something" which will make you listen to it over and over again.
Since this is a DTS 5.1 record, I must refer to the quality of sound. Since I own a CD version of this album for some years, I was delighted when I saw there is a DTS version of that album available! More so, I was much satisfied with 5.1 mix of live album "All This Time", which Kipper did. For me as a musician, it was very cool to listen to the concert and feel the instruments arround you, not just in front of you, with some echoes in the background. I think that's what is 5.1 about, right?
Well, the 5.1 mix of this album is not that good. I've had an impression that they have scheduled DTS versions of most Sting's albums in advance, and didn't have much time to analyse mix for this one. The "sound picture" is a little bit better than if you put a CD version through some "Sim Surround" effect. But, I must admit that there are moments in almost every song, which reminds me why is listening to 5.1 mix completely different experience than listening to stereo mix.

4.0 out of 5 stars He Improves With Age 9 Oct 2003
Format:DVD Audio
I have to say that I found a lot of what Sting produced after he left the Police pretentious in the least. He's changed on this album and it is a far more enjoyable affair.
It is all simple to listen to in reality, with the production values being outstanding. There are a lot of fun tracks here such as Seven Days and Love Is Stronger Than Justice.
The standout track is Fields Of Gold, which is so easy to listen to it is hard to believe it! It is made all the more special for me as it reminds me of happy times in my life!
All told an excellent album and well worth adding to your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ten of Gordon's Best! 20 Aug 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Without doubt one of Sting's best albums as well as a commercial success. The two can live side by side. Fantastic harmonic structures, use of complex time signatures, inventive imagery and all beautifully crafted and played. Only flaw is the chorus to 'Nothin' bout me' which has a clunky chord progression unlike the beautiful changes on the single version. One of my faves especially the piano solo on the fade out to 'Love is Stronger than Justice' and the moody atmosphere on 'Something the Boy Said'. Buy with confidence. Rewards hours of repeated listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MASTER BY RIGHTS OF ALL THAT IS MUSICAL! 7 Jan 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you have ever read books that talk of medival times, of a king and his chiefbard, and how that bard would be known to sing to him of great deeds and tales of myth and legend? If so, then you will begin to understand the style in which Sting has presented his album "Ten summoners tales", It is in some ways, just a collection of stories and tales. Believe me though when I tell you that these songs have a voice and melody to enchant anyone, and because the variety in his style is so great, you will hear songs totally different from each other, and yet unmistakeably of Stings creation. If you like songs that pierce the heart as well those that move you, then you couldn't ask for any better!

You have got to love Sting, beautiful music.
