Sting's Winter Musings

Former Police frontman Sting, continues to move farther and farther away from his rock and pop roots. "If On a Winter's Night", his newest disc coming October 26, explores themes of the season in a decidely middle-of-the-road kind of way.

Comprised of carols, lullabies, and gentle melodies, this is his unique take on adult contemporary music. I'm sure it will be beautiful and just perfect for a quiet winter's evening by the fire. Yet, since it comes on the heels of his previous collection, "Songs from the Labyrinth", another nonmainstream release, a fan has to wonder, "Can Sting still rock solo?" Here's hoping his next outing involves something accessible to rock radio.
