Songs from the Labyrinth album for sale Product Description



Songs from the Labyrinth album for sale by Sting was released Oct 22, 2013 on the Decca label. It probably would have been difficult, circa 1978, for fans of the Police's bouncy, ska-inflected new wave to conceive that Sting, circa 2006, would release an album of madrigals written in the late 1500s and early 1600s by Renaissance composer John Dowland. Yet Sting has always been musically adventurous and possessed of highbrow notions, as his eclectic solo career in the intervening years demonstrated. Songs from the Labyrinth CD music is a 2-disc set.   ...See Full Description

WHAT??
Songs from the Labyrinth album for sale I am a huge Sting fan, and am always on the lookout for his new material, but this stuff is a case of a Pop singer/songwriter delving into territory that he really doesn't have the chops for. Songs from the Labyrinth CD music Sting is incredibly talented, but is definitely limited in his musical versatility. Here, he strays into music that you can tell HE is very passionate about, but is unable to communicate that same passion in performance. This album will sell, but many Sting followers will be very surprised and unfortunately, disappointed. Sting can quit music anytime he wants. He has plenty of money. Instead, it's obvious he wants to continue though, which is cool, but the only people who won't be disappointed with this new release are the folks at "Deutsche Grammophon" Records. (2 Stars cuz this is STILL Sting!!).

Finally!
Songs from the Labyrinth buy CD music I love this dynamic, passionate, and real recording. Overly theatrical -- or overly refined -- performances of this music turn me off, so I'm thrilled to finally have a recording of Dowland (and Johnson) that sounds like this. It's beautiful and meaty. Edin Karamazov and Sting rock.

It's really wonderful
Songs from the Labyrinth songs The singing isn't refined. But then none of the singers back in the 1500s were professionals anyway (being a pro meant you were "loose") and this is probably closer to the way this music really sounded back then. There is something really very appealing to the way Sting sings this music. I hope he does a second CD like this!

How disappointing!!
Songs from the Labyrinth album for sale I was looking forward to buying this recording as I love early English music and madrigals. Songs from the Labyrinth CD music The songs Sting sings are charming, however the harsh voice, breathy sounds and strange accent really spoiled this recording. Sting's speaking voice is pleasant and well modulated; what a pity it didn't continue into the songs. The other disappointment was the sound of the lutenist's fingers sliding up and down the strings between notes. I am trying to convince myself to love this recording as I have spent good money on it. However it irks me each time I hear it and will probably give the disc away.

Ouch!
I was looking forward to hearing this because I enjoy Dowland and I like other Sting recordings. Now I'm sorry I bought it. Vocally, Sting really misses the mark here. And although the lute playing and its recorded sound are excellent, the voice recording sounds unnatural and over-processed.
