Sting – The Last Ship

Mr. K. Grewcock (Salisbury , England) - See all my reviews

It’s quite an eclectic selection of songs yet united by the maritime theme. There are some very beautiful songs, typically thoughtful and sometimes profound. It’s wrong to criticise if you’re looking for a pop/rock album, it’s just not that. It’s hard to review properly because Sting ‘s vision is for a play but the mental scene is clearly set to great effect. There will be scoffing at Sting’ s detour into his native tongue but I think it’s a good piece of music not really intended for his own repertoire. At the end of the day I’ve found it strangely uplifting and I’m curious to see what the legacy will be. It’s been playing all day in the van and while Sting is flawed, even by his own admission it’s a sublime and strange bit of genius.
