Sting: Nothing Like The Sun

Anthony DeCurtis, Rolling Stone, 3 December 1987

Nothing Like The Sun – a powerful, often hypnotic album that blends jazz and rock styles into a thoughtful suite of twelve songs about love, politics and the meaning of the individual life – avoids the self-conscious stiffness that marred Sting's first solo LP, The Dream of the Blue Turtles. Whereas that album often seemed to be merely the sterile enactment of its fusion-jazz ambitions, Nothing Like the Sun flows naturally.
