After the fall out and no more Police records forth right, unless I got a record of my own in hand-chuffs. What where the three of the Police members gonna do next, one form new bands or go the solo route. Well the solo step is probably easier for a singer than for a guitarist and less so for a drummer. Lucky then Gordon Sumner had the chords, vocal chords to push and pull himself anyway he wanted.
Three quarters of this album is all buzz and no fuzz as Sting belts out song after song with great lyrical content post Stings previous band albums. Here as a solo artist you can go back to time and again, picking up on his Jazz influenced history, punk heavy bass lines, mixed in with the rocker and the balladeers first piece of craftsmanship on vinyl or newbie CD. So for a first album Sting hits many a right note, riff, or over all tune, a must for any music fan, never mind the many genres of music.
