Symphonicities: No Lounge Lizard for Sting!
Trust me- This is a really good album! Sting's orchestral ramblings in the truly adventureous Symphonicity pay off. Avoiding the lounge lizard trap, Sting enjoys himself for our benefit as well. Best of the lot: "Every Little Thing She Does is Magic", the fresh take on "Roxanne", the gorgeous "I Hung My Head" and "When We Dance". And the songs sound just as terrific on tour. (See my review here.) Well done.
