Heartland Girl,

"For those who have heard both, how would you compare Brand New Day with the new album?"

I think its too early to say at this point. I need to listen to the Sacred Love more before I decide.

Remember though, Sting is on Universal and his album is sold at the new reduced price of $12.99 or less.

Rolling Stone gives Sacred Love 3 1/2 stars out of 5. Thats a half a star more than Brand New Day which recieved 3 stars exactly from Rolling Stone.

Its better than "Spin" Magazine. What Music Magazine would do you usually look at? Not really trying to defend Rolling Stone here since I disagree with about 75% of what is printed in it usually.

sting is either my second or third favorite artist, u2 #1, and in there also is jimmy buffett because i love the ocean, sailing.

i like stings solo efforts a lot more than i do with the police. i like his stuff with the police but not as much.

I think UnCut is a quality publication, you can get all the music info you need, plus good stuff on movies and books. Its out of the UK so its a little harder to find, but it beats the pants off RS imo.....

I really like "Inside," but I was disappointed that it didn't feature that amazing singer that sung a version of the song on the A&E special. I wonder if I could find an mp3 of that version...

In general, Sting's music has long been too adult contemporary for my tastes as well. I haven't really liked anything since Nothing Like the Sun, which I loved. But he does it well and I've just accepted that that's what he does now. I like him as a person, though, and am always riveted to his specials. He seems to live some kind of ideal fantasy life (of course that's never really true, but you know what I mean) and he's still beautiful to look at.

I actually think Nothing Like The Sun might be his most Adult Contemporary Album. I like all the studio albums though and Sacred Love definitely has some great tracks although I'm not ready to rate the entire album yet.

Sting's new album "Sacred Love" sold a whopping 194,680 copies its first week of release in the USA landing on the Billboard Charts at #3! This is Sting's highest sales debut level in the USA since Soundscan began tracking sales in June 1991. Only Dream of the Blue Turtles, Soul Cages and Ten Sumners Tales have achieved at higher chart position. They all reached the #2 position. The current debut is much better than "Brand New Day" which only debuted at #15.

I've not looked at Europe sales yet, but I'm sure they are very strong as well. Apparently, the new SACD format for "Sacred Love" has already sold 600,000 copies in Europe out selling "Dark Side Of The Moon" in the SACD format.

Despite a 51% drop in sales in the second week on chart for Stings "Sacred Love" album in the USA, the album comes in at #6 on the album chart. Last week it debuted at #3 on the USA album chart. This weeks sales are 94,000 copies in the USA. This puts "Sacred Love" two week USA total at 289,000 copies.
