Our Review

Sting has always followed his own muse, swirling jazz, world and classical music into his songwriting, thus making his solo work unpredictable. But Into the Labyrinth is certainly the most unexpected turn he’s taken in his long career. Here he’s chosen to explore the songs of John Dowland (1563-1626), a British composer and lutenist who Sting describes as “perhaps the first example of an archetype with which we’ve become very familiar: that of the alienated singer-songwriter.” Accompanied by Edin Karamazov on lute, whose playing is simply gorgeous, Sting embraces this technically difficult music, at times layering his voice to produce a choral effect. The melancholy melodies are dissonant and moving, and Sting’s tenor generally fits the material without the effort coming off as a stodgy period piece. (Strict traditionalists will certainly scream blasphemy — assuming they listen to it at all — but the album will most likely bring the work of Dowland to a larger audience.) The vocal lines, which bend and swoop, must have been a challenge to sing , and at times Sting struggles to hit the notes. But not often, and though eve n some of Sting’s most ardent fans will be mystified, or worse, by this indulgence, the album has its charms. Besides, it’s best — and fairest — to take the music on its own terms and forget that it’s being performed by the same guy who once wailed “Roxanne.”

Customer Reviews

New intelligence in music (5 stars)
This album is really incredible. Only someone like Sting can continue to produce cognitive intelligent music, and produce something different from the rest of his work. If you want to hear the same ole style, and are not able to interpret or "get " new stuff, then just play your old music. This CD is AWESOME.

Awesome (5 stars)
Sting's intelligence continues to baffle me. From one album to the next, you will always find something different. His reach into the classical realm proves that he is not afraid to attempt at the most difficult music to produce. Excellent album.

What are you talking about? (4 stars)
This is not one star! The songs are cool, especially the guitarist he features! And the stories between the songs are just plain neat. My favorite is track 12, Fantasy.

Biography

Born: October 02, 1951 in Wallsend, England
Genre: Rock
Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

After disbanding the Police at the peak of their popularity in 1984, Sting quickly established himself as a viable solo artist, one obsessed with expanding the boundaries of pop music. Sting incorporated heavy elements of jazz, classical, and worldbeat into his music, writing lyrics that were literate and self-consciously meaningful, and he was never afraid to emphasize this fact in the press. For such unabashed ambition, he was equally loved and reviled, with supporters believing that he was at...
