Soul Cages, Dream of the Blue Turtles , and Nothing Like The Sun, and 1 song off TST- "shape of my heart" everything past that has sucked, his music gets worse and worse every second.
Stings soul albums are GREAT indeed ...

But, I beg to differ with you here, Sting's "Brand New Day" album
does NOT suck !!

There are songs on that album such as ... A Thousand Years / Desert Rose
After The Rain Has Fallen / Fill Her Up and Brand New Day ... that are AWESOME !!

I like a lot of Sting's solo material, especially the first four albums. And while I like certain songs from his latest stuff (like the ones just mentioned), the albums as a whole are not as impressive. Half the album would be excellent, while the other half wouldn't be as good.

The Police was a great band, probably the first band I really got into.

Bought all their albums, "Bed's Too Big Without You" is my favorite Police track.

It's too bad I started getting into u2 and realized they were better. I mean, its all about opinion, but after I got into other bands like u2 I don't listen to the Police as much. I usually go back to "The Classics" CD they put out.

It was the LA Christie's viewing of the paintings for Peter and the Wolf. I was able to attend an invitation-only showing. Gavin was there. ( ) And then I noticed Stewart was there. He was hanging around talking to Gavin, looking relaxed and fabulous.

I'm afraid this is true for me as well. I saw them a couple of times back in the day, and they were just great the first time, but the second time, not as great. It was the beginning of the end, I think.

Ah the police. They were WONDERFUL. Like U2, they were very unique, no one else had a sound like them, and never will.

Although, it's not my favorite ... that song is a GREAT tune!

sting came up with the melody and lyrics, wrote most of the guitar parts, (since he plays guitar), came up with the arrangements, played keyboards/piano, also played all the saxophones...and of course wrote all the bass lines.
