5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for your collection 3 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
When i was in my early teens, Sting was just a name that i had heard of but to be honest didnt really think much of... but i was slowly introduced to his music in lessons (by my rather odd music teacher who *may* have had a thing for him)and ever since i have LOVED this man. If you are going to buy one sting/Police album this has to be the one. If ur not really a sting fan but you listen to this album, u realise how amazing he really is! every track you think 'oh iv heard this song before wow!' and same for the next.. and the next... and the next... quite an amazing experience! so if you;re like me (a poor student) and can only afford one sting album - buy this one! its got everything and i love it soo much and im so upset because i cant afford tickets for his sacred love concert at the albert hall... :( maybe one day wen i become an investment banker he'll tour again?

5.0 out of 5 stars What an album? 7 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD
Gordon Sumner (alias Sting) established in the band Police, with a host of hits including Every Breath you take and Message in A Bottle. He later launched a successful solo career with hits such as English man in New York, If You Love Somebody Set Them Free, Fields of Gold, Desert rose and many more. He has four decades of experience in the music business. The appeal has not diminished as a musician

The Very Best of Sting and the Police features a collection hits of Gordon Sumner. This includes the association with the Police band and as a solo artist. Every single track from start to end is superb and you can listen timeslessly. The album makes an excellent inclusion in the CD collection

The beauty about the album is that it consist of songs from four decades 70's, 80's, 90's and present. He continues to maintain the appeal and dignity as a quality musician . If you share a passion for music of the highest quality, purchase this album. It sure beats music industry today, which is bombarded with manufactured bands. Sting exemplifies what real music should entail. There is talent in today music industry which I am not going to deny, but it is hard to find unique talent such as in the case of Sting. The album deservedly honours the talents and skills which he contributes to the music industry.

If you are looking for talented musician with a great voice as in the case of Sting and also leave a music legacy with their singles as proven by his excellent track record, then buy this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superstars finest on one cd 6 Feb 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
1997s updated best off from Stings sophisticated solo work back through
time to include just about every single from hit machine the police. But with Sting about to collect the "Lifetime"award at the Brits its as good an opportunity as any to introduce one superb collecton of songs to an adoring public.
Sting has been such a permanent fixture for so long now you actually forget just how great he actually is - I defy anyone who has even the tiniest interest in Sting to look through the track list and fail to be wightily impressed.
Every Breath You Take is surely one of the greatest songs of all time with Roxanne an undoubted classic. Fields of Gold was the lead song at my wedding and can anyone not tap their feet and sing along to the chorus of Englishman In New York? This cd is brought bang up to date with the vastly underrated Desert Rose a deserved number one single in seven countries but only no.15 in the uk.
All in all a supreme body of work celebrating a quarter of a century at the top of the tree if Stigs music is good enough to be sampled by acts as diverse as Puff Daddy to George Michael and Feeder to Rage Against the Machine then surely its good enough for you? Add to your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars SUPERB! 6 Jun 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Wot an excellent greatest hits collection this is!From the classic "Can't stand losing you" through to "If you love somebody set them free" and even up to the present day with the likes of "Desert Rose."This is certainly the definitive way for a novice Sting fan to start their collection.There are only a few snags- some Police classics are missing, such as the original version of "The Bed's too big without you," the dark "Spirits in the material world" and of course, the anthem "Synchronicity II." However, all sins forgiven as this collection isn't a double album and yet, they've got his best singles on one, solitary disk.DEFINATELY WORTH THE MONEY!I would also like to recommend the original "Police:Greatest Hits," and "Fields of gold:The best of Sting 1984-94."

5.0 out of 5 stars A great "best of" compilation 17 Oct 2010
Format:MP3 Download
This album has all the great tunes I have always loved from Sting and The Police. The only omission I think, is probably 'Shape of my heart' from the movie "Leon". Aside from that it is essential listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant from start to finish 22 Mar 2004
By Jimmy E
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
An album full of brilliant classic tracks, but a glaring omission in "Shape of My Heart", recently defiled by the awful Sugar Babes and Craig David. If you think you like Sting, trust me, you do: buy this,its great!

18 tracks here - 9 Sting and 9 Police and so something has to give. As the Police had 14 Top 40 entries 5 tracks are omitted including 3 from Synchronicity. Read more

Some of the better tracks were sadly left out from my favourite album, Dream of the Blue Turtles. Otherwise for the price - not too bad a purchase.
