Loved the analogy of 'trial by fire' now in the firelight the case continues and how it ultimately leads to self-confession. The candid flow and simplicity induces overwhelming poignancy. Great, great song Sting!!! Flag Blueindface on October 27, Flag kevinszv on February 25, General Comment Beautiful simplicity.
I love the key change at the end Okay, musicians' nonsense, but it's my favorite part because of that No Replies Log in to reply.
General Comment I had the opportunity to hear Sting on public radio when this album was released. He said this song was about the relationship between him and his father.
General Comment This song is definitely about his father, and how after denying it for years, he must have loved his father after all. In his book, Sting talks about Ghost Story - Sting - Brand New Day (CD later in life, he realized becoming famous was an effort to win his Dad's respect. My Interpretation Actually, "gone resistance" is correct. They interviewed Sting asking him about Ghost Story and he stated that 'That's what ghosts are,' says Sting.
The song is about being haunted on a nightly basis by the past that tortures you mentally until you say, OK, this is the truth now let's move on. Btw a ghost in this sense is not a spirit but more like a haunting thought or feeling. Very moving song, Sting is amazing! General Comment this is my absolute favourite sting song.
General Comment About the simlicity of it, I have the impression, when reading it cause I haven't yet been blessed with hearing it T. T that the first halth is like a poem, Ghost Story - Sting - Brand New Day (CD, and from the middle down, it becomes a song. Also, the first halth has more visual immigery I watch the Western sky The sun is sinking The geese are flying South Another night in court The same old trial The same old questions asked The same denial The shadows close me round Like jury members I look for answers in The fire's embers My Interpretation When I heard this song, I felt a similarity.

That doesn't mean, however, that the album is worthless. At his weakest, Sting is still capable of tunes and arrangements that are light-years ahead of anyone else working in a similar vein, and a few cuts here the burbling bossa nova of 'Big Lie Small World', the Princely 'After the Rain Has Fallen' and the suitably ethereal 'Ghost Story' rank among his best. It's just not as smart overall as it should be. Review from Best Magazine France by author unknown A particular fad has been going on for several years.
Some adhere to it, but some are left perplexed. After a while, these mysterious stickers have taken on a meaning synonymous of "loved car", polished, which despite not necessarily being fast, has the look and the flash.
If it's immediately recognizable and contains the usual elements of a Sting album, 'Brand New Day' is nonetheless different on many levels. Faithful to his intellectual-gentleman-open-to-the-world image, Sting continues to mature and question himself, accumulating multiple influences with wit and cunning: to have friends is very useful. Point taken when his new friend Cheb Mami lays down his soaring rai and his darboukas on 'Desert Rose'.
The result is a marvel that should create a buzz. Another notable orientation: Sting has been leaning towards electronics. He incorporates it abundantly but tastefully to create elaborate and profound ambiences the wonderful 'A Thousand Years'. With good surprises, innovations, and classic compositions, 'Brand New Day' is sometimes uneven, but faithful to all that Sting produces: Touched by "class.
It opens as a pedal steel Nashville pastiche, a yarn about a disgruntled country-road petrol pump attendant who runs off with the day's take and a plan to 'head west' with his girl.
Until, that is, after six verses he runs into both a different, far moodier tune and the beauty of nature in the woods around the gas station.
You gotta 'Fill Her Up' with love'. After this, nothing more is said, but a spacious jazz piano and double bass outro - the fifth melodic theme - somehow suggests a lesson taken to heart. If that's not enough, while tired souls bowl 'pretentious! Throughout, 'Brand New Day''s goodie bag of class-rock, breakbeats, bossa nova, rap, chanson and whatever next gives more the more It's played.
Sting's preoccupation this year is romantic love. His stories' large embrace includesArabesque exotica The 'Desert Rose'Sinatra-in-Paris urban tragedy 'Tomorrow We'll See', doomed hero a drag queen prostitute and cod-smoochy anthropomorphic farce 'Perfect Love Gone Wrong', doomed hero a jealous dog.
But even when he risks generalisation, Sting can still pull it off: the candidly millennium-referencing A Thousand Years is a quiet, aeon-spanning romance sung beautifully, which helps.
Prone, as ever, to the odd plunk down into mundanity when the wax wings of imagination melt - here, with one or two choruses de trop re the power of love - Sting can still rely on musical instinct for a little bit of what he fancies to do him good, be it Algerian Cheb Mami warbling on A 'Desert Rose', French rapper Ste upbraiding her pooch on 'Perfect Love Gone Wrong', or, marvellously, Stevie Wonder frolicking his harmonica - surely the sunniest sound of the century - through the title track.
It may be that nobody is going to like Sting who doesn't already, but 'Brand New Day' is full of vaulting ambition and cat-killing curiosity. Review from USA Today by Edna Gundersen Sting, the undisputed king bee of adult-contemporary pop, delivers more of his exoticism, sophistication and melodic brilliance on this seventh solo album, a vibrant work free of the fatigue or rote maneuvers you might expect at this stage in a long and lucrative career.
Sting explores the healing powers of romance in warm, beautifully crafted music bolstered by impeccable musicianship, Ghost Story - Sting - Brand New Day (CD vocals and such impressive guests as James Taylor, Stevie Wonder and Branford Marsalis playing an elegant clarinet on 'Tomorrow We'll See'. Review from The New York Post by author unknown On his first disc in more than three years, Sting turns in a nine-song album that explores the secret language of love.
The style-defying disc taps jazz, African pop, country and just about everything else that has tickled Sting's ear lately. Rather than sounding like a musical raider pillaging his way across any culture that gets within his grasp, here Sting respects the music and always give it enough room to develop. Although the theme is love, Sting avoids getting soft and mushy. Instead, he looks at love as if it were a mental disability, working his way through various stages, from head-over-heels to can't-live-with-'em-can't-kill-'em.
On Perfect, he pushes the dark jazz bop into hip-hop with a twist the rap is delivered in French by international artist St. The piece eventually transforms into a gospel rave. And listen for guest spots, like the clarinet turn by long-time Sting pal Branford Marsalis, as well a distinctive harmonica blow by Stevie Wonder and James Taylor's mellow vocals. Review from The Buffalo News by Anthony Violanti The former Police man, as usual, is in elegant and cerebral form on his first release in three years.
Country takes center stage on a tune called 'Fill Her Up' that ends with a gospel sound. Just when you think he has overdone it, he comes back to his old roots with a deep funk groove on 'Perfect Love Gone Wrong'. He remains among contemporary music's most ambitious and daring songwriters and performers.
This album proves it once again. Review from Mojo Magazine by Johnny Black Buying every second Sting album has always been a Album) safe bet, and this is no exception. After the lacklustre but still multi-platinum 'Mercury Falling' in'Brand New Day' feels like 10 more 'Summoner's Tales', employing a similar range of styles from bossa nova to country to gospel with multi-ethnic touches. If that makes it sound a tad contrived, well, it is, but so was Beethoven's Fifth, and the point is that Sting employs his eclectic shadings masterfully and always in the right places.
When Stevie Wonder's unmistakeably down home harmonica stabs into the dirty ambient opening of the title track, it's a perfect moment. Similarly, the luxurious North African ululations of Cheb Mami ideally counterpoint Sting's dusty vocal on the complex, soaring, 'Desert Rose', as does girly French rapper Stephanie Quinol, pepping up the ultra smooth witticisms of the shaggy dog tale, 'Perfect Love Gone Wrong'.
Given time, it could be your favourite Sting album ever. Review from The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette by Tracy Collins Gordon Sumner has seen a lot of ups and downs in the 20 years since he debuted as the bass player for the Police. If there's any one trait that's been both his curse and his blessing, it's that Sting has never been satisfied with the trappings, or the methods, of his success.
That has resulted in things as maddening as him quitting the Police at the height of its success 15 years ago, or as gratifying as yet another solid effort by one of his generation's most skilled songwriters. Several songs later, he punctuates a jazzy 'Perfect Love Gone Wrong' with guest raps from Cheb Mami - in French. It's a sort of Boyz N the Berets, but what makes it so smooth is Sting's impeccable aplomb in blending it all seemlessly together.
He also takes us to Nashville, complete with pedal steel and twang on 'Fill Her Up', getting vocal help from James Taylor, who adds a little more authenticity to the song than the well-heeled Brit lead singer.
Sting also takes on a number of personas to deliver some spiritual messages, from a prostitute who provides a street sermon on judging others, to a gas station robber who has a religious experience that sets him straight. There isn't a misstep among the 10 songs. Sting likes to say his strict lifestyle keeps him feeling eternally young. But it's his ability to turn out work like this that keeps his music feeling eternally fresh.
And that's not a bad thing. Because while you can always count on Sting to hopscotch between styles bossa nova, country, world beat, jazz and gospel all receive workouts hereyou never know what approach he's going to take.
But boomers take comfort: James Taylor and Stevie Wonder are on hand, too, as well as trumpeter Chris Botti, who brings noirish Miles Davis shadings to a couple of tracks. While this may not be a completely brand-new day, it is another engaging step in the evolution of one of pop's most compelling personalities.
He ends the decade with a polychromatic, keenly optimistic 'Brand New Day' - a record that explores not only a huge variety of worldly influences, but also the various stages of his pop evolution. With only nine full-length compositions, you wonder if Sting is getting lazy; on the contrary, these mini-epics point to his most ambitious stage yet.
Songs like 'Big Lie Small World' hint at jazz, world and Latin music all in one sensual rhythm, without allowing the multitude of colorful elements to clash.
And while each genre-synthesizing work evokes a story outside of Sting's poeticism, 'Brand New Day' also marks the artist at his narrative, romantic best see the wonderfully, country-jangly 'Fill Her Up' and the Dave Matthews-meets-Peter Gabriel title track.
Highlighting it all, though, is 'Desert Rose', a glowing, grand pop song - complete with Arabic chanting. A Ghost Story - Sting - Brand New Day (CD of hope and reflection, 'Brand New Day' is a fresh start that doesn't forget its past. After the commercial disappointment of 's 'Mercury Falling' the artist may be working on winning back his fan base. With a new collection of top-notch songs, he's liable to do just that. Sting has always had great variety among his songs, and his ability to translate musical influences into his own unique songs shines on this new Album).
The singer claims that writing is hardest for him, but the lyrics are rich with different characters and themes. Whether it's the regret in the comical 'Big Lie Small World' or the lovelorn woman in 'After the Rain Has Fallen', each song has something that engages you.
One of the best tracks is 'Tomorrow We'll See' with its smooth strings and European feel. The thinly disguised theme and Branford Marsalis' clarinet add a good dose of sensuality to the song. Sting has written a few country-tinged songs in recent years, and 'Fill Her Up' is an amazing example of his musical range. The song starts off as country with James Taylor sharing vocals. It then turns into a gospel song and ends with a touch of jazz.
The next track, the soothing 'Ghost Story', perfectly complements its predecessor. The title track completes the album and turns out to be the catchiest song of the bunch.
Sting recruits Stevie Wonder to play harmonica and he plays it in his trademark, early-'70s style. The song will be in your head for hours because of Sting's hopeful lyrics on love and Wonder's harmonica evoking not just excellence, but nostalgia.
With various musical styles and great lyrics, not to mention a few classy guests, Sting has made an album that gets better every time you listen to it.

An excellent album in an age when most albums contain a maximum of one passable song/5(). Light, even effervescent, Brand New Day feels like little else in Sting's catalog. Not that it represents a new beginning, contrary to what the title may promise. The album is not only firmly within his tradition, it sounds out of time -- it's odd how close Brand New Day comes to feeling like a sequel to Nothing Like the Sun. Musically, that is.
