Product Description

Amazon.ca

A good overview of Sting's radio hits and popular album tracks with only one major omission ("Mad About You"), Fields of Gold also offers three previously-unreleased songs. "This Cowboy Song" and "When We Dance" appear on no other album, while "We'll Be Together" is an alternate version. The import version of this collection offers a substantially different (and expanded) track listing, dropping "Fortress Around Your Heart," "Be Still My Beating Heart," and "Why Should I Cry for You"; and adding "Mad About You," "Nothing 'Bout Me," "Seven Days," "It's Probably Me," "Love is the Seventh Wave," and "Demolition Man." --Gavin McNett

5.0 out of 5 stars Poetic, Metaphoric, simply Beautiful!!! June 24 2004
By Debby
Format:Audio CD
This "Fields of Gold" collection enables us to take a glimpse at Sting's brilliant songwriting and awesome vocal performance. Every song on the CD is solid and thought-provoking.
Sting expertly mingled different genres of music, making the CD full of varieties, such as the jazzy "Englishman in NY," the rock flavored "If You Love Somebody Set Them Free," and the melancholy "Fragile." The two new additions "When We "Dance" and "This Cowboy Song" are as excellent, very creative works. I certainly found enlightenment from listening to the songs.
In addition to music, the lyrics are moving and poetic. I was on the verge of tears when I read the lyrics of "Be Still My Beating Heart" and "Fields of Gold." The words of "Fragile" are probably the most genuine portrayal of human life.
The only drawback is that the collection is not complete. Some of Sting's most moving songs, such as "Mad about You" (my favorite), "Shape of My Heart" are missing. In sum, if you have not listened to lots of Sting's songs, the collection can serve as as a guide. For me, a loyal fan, it is a CD that continually reminds me of Sting's surpassing expertise in music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Songwriting Brilliance Aug. 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
"Fields of Gold: The Best of Sting 1984-1994" is a compilation of ten years of brilliant songwriting by Sting. In a project like this, there are so many bright spots it's difficult to pick a spot to even start.
Without question every song is a gem, but my standouts would have to be as follows:
Fields of Gold
Be Still My Beating Heart
Fragile - Inspired by the passing of his mother.
Englishman In New York
Russians
Sting reveals passion and compassion in this wonderful collection of tunes and effectively reflects all moods in the process. A fan of Sting in sure not to be without this recording. This is a CD not to be missed, this truly shows sincerity of this amazing artist.

4.0 out of 5 stars I've been stung. July 21 2003
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
This once punk "policeman" just keeps getting more mellow with age. But that's ok. I like his newer stuff too, even if some of it does approach "Phil Collins" territory. His first solo album sounds closest to "The Police" of course, especially in the excellent song "Fortress around your Heart". Most everything he released in these first 10 solo years is great, as well as what he's done since. You can't really do wrong when your name is "Sting", (his real name is Gordon). I also like the new songs almost as much as the hits. There is also the "Best of Sting and Police" album, but I would stick to the seperate collections. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius April 23 2003
Format:Audio CD
Sting is a musical genius. His eclectic sound and soothing rhythms appeal to me in a way no other artist does. I have kept this album playing in my car for quite some time now, and it does make for awesome mood music anywhere. Sting is just an awesome artist, and this truly is a collection of his best. I couldn't live without this collection. Can you?

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of Sting '84-'94 April 1 2003
Format:Audio CD
I remember the reason I bought this album back in the summer of '94 was because I used to listen to most of those songs on the radio, then I found myself recording them on cassette tape! Then I realized, "wait a minute! I think I'm obsessed with Sting!" So I decided the best way to hear my beloved Sting songs was to buy his "Best of" Album on Cassette, CD & VHS (to see him in a diverse variety of music videos) Since then, I became a Huge Fan of BOTH Sting and the Police!

5.0 out of 5 stars It works . . . March 18 2003
Format:Audio CD
You can never truly capture such a versatile artist in one compilation disc. However, if like me, you want a nice set to some of Sting's signature tunes, then pick up this CD.
Obviously being a fan of his for years now, there are songs on this album which I consider great ("Shape of My Heart," for one).
If you can, however buy all of his solo CD's, they are singularly enjoyable to listen to (especially this 1984-1994) period.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dignified Jan. 29 2003
Format:Audio CD
Dignified compilation of ten years Sting. The bass player and singer of the Police has also solo quite something to offer. This CD invites to relaxed listening pleasure. My favorite songs are "Fields Of Gold", "It's Probably Me","They Dance Alone", "Fragile" and "Love Is The Seventh Wave".

4.0 out of 5 stars Good enough for a "best of" album Jan. 2 2003
Format:Audio CD
This CD is an excellant overview of Sting's commercial hits, and is sure to please with "When We Dance", "If I Ever Lose My Faith In You", "Fields Of Gold", "If You Love Somebody (Set Them Free)", "All This Time", and so forth.
It does have the weakness, of course, of most "best of" compilations in that it shows only the commercial "top 40" side of a notable artist. Those who think the only good stuff is that which is played on the radio therefore enjoy this and other "best of" collections, and will like this more than any one album.
This is a good sampler of Sting's radio hits, but if you want a deeper understanding of Sting, don't stop here, but also listen to the albums which show off the less commercial side of his talent.
