Sting – Ten Summoner’s Tales

29 07 2011

Listened: Tuesday June 7

Wow. This is going way back. Ten Summoner’s Tales was one of the first CDs I ever owned. And as I owned few albums on cassette, it’s probably one of the first 20 albums I ever owned. I hadn’t listened to it in 15 years.

A lot of the songs remind me of the early 90s because, frankly, they were everywhere at the time. I loved Fields of Gold back then. Listening to the album now, for what it is – vaguely jazz easy listening – it’s not horrible, but some songs are quite cheesy. It’s not really my style now.

I do remember breaking this album out when I finally saw the director’s cut of The Professional – Shape of My Heart is used quite appropriately in the closing scene. Of all the songs, I enjoy it the most, simply because it reminds me of that brilliant film.
