Littered with catchy but intelligent pop songs, this album is a prime example of how it should be done. Sting's expertise as a musician is evident in contructing fun songs, even if none of them sound too technically difficult.
For intelligent songwriting, check this out: Russians is a song about the cold war, the concept taken from a book he had read. Children's crusade is about a childrens march across Europe that was supposed to have happened in the 1600's I believe. We work the black seam is possibly about Sting's heritage as the son of a working class family, although he was the son of a milkman and not a coal miner. Moon over Bourbon street is about vampires, taken from when he read interview with a vampire by Anne Rice.
Behind the words lies Stings unique voice. Able to reach high notes like few can, Sting is an exceptional vocal talent. Perhaps not put to best use on this album, still you really can't imagine anyone else singing these songs as fittingly.
You'll be missing out if you don't buy this album. But what do I know, I'm just another music fan...
