Sting - ...Nothing Like The Sun mp3 album

Nothing Like the Sun is the second solo studio album by English singer-songwriter Sting. The album was originally released on 13 October 1987 on A&M (worldwide). The album explores the genres of pop rock, soft rock, jazz, reggae, world, acoustic rock, dance-rock, and funk rock. The songs were recorded during March–August in 1987 in sessions that took place at Air Studios, in Montserrat, assisted by record producers Hugh Padgham, Bryan Loren, and Neil Dorfsman.

This is an album where the only up-tempo track, the only trifle - the cheerfully stiff white-funk "We'll Be Together" - was added at the insistence of the label because they believed there wasn't a cut on the record that could be pulled as a single, one that would break down the doors to mainstream radio. And they were right, since everything else here is too measured, calm, and deliberately subtle to be immediate (including the intentional throwaway, "Rock Steady"). So, why is it a better album than its predecessor? Because Sting doesn't seem to be trying.

Nothing Like The Sun" is chock-full of imagery like this. In "Be Still My Beating Heart", a song that constantly changes and loops back onto itself when listened to carefully, Sting sings about his heart drowning in a sea of emotion. While this sentiment might sound trite (or, God forbid, cliche) in another performer's hands, here, it draws parallels to the sort of deep melancholy Sting is adept at cultivating. Still, he doesn't fully surrender to it, at least not in the first half of the album.

Nothing Like the Sun to her, and at one point had considered calling the album In Praise of Women. I felt my mother dying was something we had no choice about," he told Rolling Stone in a 1988 interview. She was going to die; it was a given. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the album unfolds at a mid-tempo pace. That's the way I felt," he told Musician in 1987. It's a reflection of two years of – it's how I am at the moment. Anything that was uptempo, I didn't put on it. I didn't feel like doing it, even though the engineer was begging me. I'm saving them for my heavy-metal album. His still-expanding interest in musical multiculturalism, not to mention a consistent focus on renewal through songs like "Lazarus Heart," consistently steered this project away from the morose.
