Live In Berlin ~ Sting
Live In Berlin ~ Sting
5.0 out of 5 stars Sting Live in Berlin, 10 Jan 2014
Perfect! (me) and my dear Wife, who in the not too distant past held no particular affinity to the skilled song writing and harmonious vocals of said former Police front man, has finally caved in! Ably backed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and skillfully supported by Jo Lawry and Dominic Miller, this live offering from Berlin is simply stunning, We adore the whole production. Superbly Brilliant! As a post script, attempt to endure some of the live visual offerings from the idols of your own teenage offspring, and then ask them to compare, You may just enjoy some half decent conversation for once!

For a general overview of European railways this Atlas is excellent. My knowledge of European railway routes is very much in its infancy, whereas the routes of the UK and Ireland are far more familiar. I have spotted a couple of minor errors regarding our own network, as a result one may assume the odd inaccuracy may possibly occur at locations that are less familiar. That small point aside, I feel this is a fine offering, portraying the rail routes of our closest neighbours. I like it a lot. Recommended!

Having watched this concert on television, really enjoying the eclectic mix of connected stories set to music and song, I decided the CD would be worth a punt! Stings charismatic vocals are still very much top notch, as are those of fellow gravel voiced "Geordie" Jimmy Nail. I would have given top marks, however the beautiful voice of Jo Lawry, who harmonized, and, on several tracks of the live airing sang duet with Sting, is sadly missing, this is unfortunately to the detriment of the CD.
