Not my favorite Sting Album...

"That would be Ten Summoner Tales, but this one ranks up there. This is another album that Sting seems to want to have fun on while some of the songs are a little more serious than Ten Summoner Tales. The mix of music is pretty good, ranging from Middle Eastern to Country. The lyrics are excellent (as always). My favorite song is "Brand New Day" because it gives a nice positive message.
The SACD mix on this album is amazing. Sting never sounded better. Makes the album come alive and seem like STing is right in the living room. The 5.1 mix is very well done. Just wish they would do the same for Ten Summoners Tales."
Sting - BRAND NEW DAY (1999)

"Sting seemed to be on a roll in the early 90s, with his masterpiece THE SOUL CAGES and the outstanding TEN SUMMONER'S TALES. Unfortunately, his winning streak ended with 1996's MERCURY FALLING, a pretentious, unextraodinary addition to Sting's musical portfolio. In 1999, however, Sting made his comeback in a big way with BRAND NEW DAY. It was the ex-Police frontman's first venture into techno music, which he would continue to explore on his subsequent release, SACRED LOVE. Along with the exotic "Desert Rose", a surprise smash hit for the 50-something musician, there's a variety of delightful songs, including the hyptonic "A Thousand Years", the irresistible "After The Rain Has Fallen", and the mega-upbeat title tune. The album has a few oddities - "Tomorrow We'll See", about a transvestite hooker, redeemed by its shady bass line, and the cringeworthy, pretentious "Fill Her Up", undoubtedly the worst song of Sting's entire career - but for the most part, it's a delightful melding of jazz, alt rock and techno. Over thirty years after a band called The Police burst on to the music scene, Sting still rocks."
