4.0 out of 5 stars Make sure you buy the double not the single disc, 30 Oct. 2011
This review is from: The Best Of 25 Years (Audio CD)
fields of gold was realised in 1994, that makes me feel quite old, this set has many of those tracks and a lot more as well. For me Sting was at his best on the slower songs such as when we dance, fragile and we dance alone, but saying that the up-tempo stuff like all this time, If you love someone set them free, are still quality songs. The double collection gives Sting's carrier space to breath fitting 25 years of hits on one disc just does not work, the two disc set does have its throw away live versions including Russians and demolition man which could have easily been replaced with the better studio versions. All in all this is a good collection, however my major criticism is the double cardboard sleeve, the discs are so tight inside its all most impossible to get the discs out,the booklet looks like it is glued as an afterthought to the back of the booklet and it jut really is tacky not fitting to an artist like Sting. I really hate these paper sleeves they damage the discs and they are not very hard wearing at all, wish they would just use the normal plastic double cases.

From what I've just read it doesn't make sense why you'd give this 5 stars

Matt I think A) because the pro's out weigh the cons, and for value money under £10 a double disc containing all the hits is good value b) I wanted to advise people the double is better than the single. Although I dislike cardboard sleeves and live track of big hits, I still felt at the time very good value. However I think in hindsight four would have made more sense, if I reviewed it now that's what I would give. Hope that answers your query.
