4.0 out of 5 stars The perfect evening album...a fine live effort too, 5 April 2003
By 
This review is from: ...All This Time (Audio CD)
As numerous websites and fans will tell you, the main theme for this album was intimacy, and a desire to create something that would be an antithesis to a stadium performance. And "...All This Time" succeeds perfectly in that respect. As a listener, we get the big hits (Brand New Day, Moon Over Bourbon Street, Mad About You, All This Time etc.), some of those old Police classics (Roxanne, Don't Stand So Close To Me, Every Breath You Take) as well as more low-key hits (Fragile, 1000 Years, Hounds Of Winter). The album is perfect for a quiet evening in, or even as a dinner party soundtrack. The absence of any overdrawn speeches and dedications, as well as some clever editing techniques gives the album a more seemless feel, and really transports you to part of the audience. Songs like Roxanne, Mad About You and Don't Stand So Close To Me are carefully reworked to give them a more 'jazzy' feel, whilst Every Breath You Take works brilliantly as a finale (despite being a tad predictable- after all wouldn't you want to end with your biggest commercial hit?). There are very few downsides to this album, although some more material from "Brand New Day" and "...Nothing Like The Sun" wouldn't have gone amiss. Be aware that there are also 2 versions of this album, one which includes Shape Of My Heart and one which doesn't.
