Product Description

Amazon.ca

Sting explores his shiny, happy side on Sacred Love, adding playful touches of techno to his smooth, vaguely multi-cultural pop sound. Like 1999's Brand New Day, Love sounds effortless and content, with expert musicians backing up Sting's gauzy revelations about love and life. The former Police frontman shakes things up here and there; DJ/producers like BT and Victor Calderone breathe life into tracks like "Never Coming Home" and "Send Your Love," while Mary J. Blige puts her smoky vocals to work on "Whenever I Say Your Name." "This War" takes a not-so-subtle shot at George W. Bush, as Sting gives his left-leaning fan base a thrill with lyrics like "Your daddy was a businessman/ and it always made good sense/ You know the war can make you rich my friend/ In dollars, pounds, and cents." Of course, Sting long ago cashed in his rebel cachet for adult contemporary oblivion. But even though this music is designed for broad appeal, it does so with the natural, unforced ease of a seasoned showman. --Matthew Cooke

5.0 out of 5 stars He has done it again. Oct. 2 2003
Format:Audio CD
As soon as new album is available from Sting I tend to rush to the store to get it, as I did this Tuesday. And as usual high expectations have been met yet again. This album maintains an incredibly high standard that this guy has set for himself over the last twenty-odd years. If you want to know how to mould drum'n'bass to jazz and not make it sound a disaster, listen to 'Never Coming Home', some of the best piano playing you will hear all year from Jason Rebello. If you love intelligent music that sounds as though the artist actually thought about what he was doing, you must buy this. I just want to know how this man is managing to get better with every year and every album. He is one if handful of artists who's albums I actually look forward to and never get disappointed. Only another three or four years till the next one, no doubt. The wait has been worth it as always.
Thanks for one of the best albums I've heard in a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rich melodies get better with each listening. July 17 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When I first bought this CD I thought it was one of Sting's best. Now that I've listened to it many times, I think my first impression was right.
Each time I play this CD I pick out sublte sounds and rythms that make each song have a new twist.
With all of the good stuff, the disco "Send Your Love" adds nothing to an overall excellent album.

5.0 out of 5 stars MUSIC WAY BEYOND ITS TIME July 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
It's obvious that Sting is a holy prophet sent by God above. The message in his music is one of transcending love and hope. How can you go wrong with that?

By A Customer

I can not understand any of these negative reviews. This Album deserves a chance. After listening to it several times, I just love it. Maybe it is to advanced for all of the simpletons out there to enjoy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sounds unmotivated June 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
He's anything but prolific--he releases an album every three or four years with only ten new songs. So why can't Sting make all ten count? The single, "Send Your Love," is a decent song, and his duet with Mary J. Blige on "Whenever I Say Your Name" is a stirring listening experience. It's telling, though, that Blige is the one whose voice stands out and makes the song interesting--she's the one bringing the fireworks. The remaining collection of Sting solos isn't bad, but it's bland enough that most of it will drop from memory as soon as you put this CD back on the shelf to gather dust next to Brand New Day.

1.0 out of 5 stars I've Been Stung! June 17 2004
By B. Lane
Format:Audio CD
I am a huge Sting fan, seeing him in concert several times, owning rare imports, soundtracks, concerts, b-sides, collaborations, and practically every piece of music he has ever published. I anxiously awaited his new album, "Sacred Love" only to have the biggest letdown in my music-buying history. I gave it a chance and played the album several times hoping at least one song would stand out. I am sorry to say that this album is a waste of time and money. Sting has tried to refine himself each album, going from the rockin' new age Police to his departure to jazz which actually broke into top 40 and each album since has inched into adult contemporary. Sting, what has happened to you? This album is terrible! I will not be buying tickets for his latest tour (words I thought I would never utter) because I can't stand to hear even one song from his album live. Look, if you are hungry like I am for some new Sting music, try searching through Amazon for "Sting at the Movies" or for some of his b-sides and imports. They are far superior to this horrible album and will at least whet your appetite for Sting...at least for now...

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing painful about this album's sting... June 12 2004
By DanD
Format:Audio CD
OK, so I'm not too sure what that meant, either. But this album is a joy to listen to...and a necessity.
Sting's songwriting has been a blue print for generations of songwriters. He crafts words and music into poetry...which he sings with his smooth, sly, enchanting voice. A superb instrumentalist, Sting's music combines just about every single genre of music that's out there...heck, "Send Your Love" features superb flamenco guitar playing by Vicente Amigo. Put that next to the song's remix at the end of the album...and you realize this is a culturaly, musically diverse album.
Sting's delivery of "Dead Man's Rope" is intoxicating, for lack of a better word; the title track is a journey through the very meaning of the word "delightful enchantment." "Forget About the Future" and "This War" take tongue-in-cheek to a whole new level, while "Whenever I Say Your Name" is only beautifully written, but is sung with pure and unbridled emotion (thanks in part to duet partner Mary J. Blige).
"Sacred Love" may not be Sting's best; I don't have all of his albums, so I can't say. But he's come a long way since he led the rock group The Police, and the journey was probably for the better. Here, Sting sounds confident of himself and his talents--and he has every right to be. He is, no doubt about it, one of music's best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Older and Wiser June 7 2004
By Josh
Format:Audio CD
This album is by far musically set aside from his previous albums. Lyrically Sting has not changed a bit. The "jazziness" of Sting's previous albums, is hardly seen in this album. "Sacred Love" has more upbeat club songs on it and there has definately been some great influence of The Beatles in a few of the songs, one of Sting's favorite bands. Sting always seems to have matured in some way, and yet there is still the sign of his dirty mind that's still in his lyrics. Writing songs about prostitutes seems to have always been a favorite of Sting's.
