Album 365: Day 37 - Sting - The Dream of the Blue Turtles

The Dream of the Blue Turtles

Favorite tracks: If You Love Somebody Set Them Free, The Dream of the Blue Turtles, Fortress Around Your Heart
Sleeper tracks: Russians, Moon Over Bourbon Street

I remember it was a pretty big deal when Sting released this album.  I thought "...Set Them Free" was a great tune and Omar Hakim's drumming on mainstream radio was refreshing.  "Fortress..." has a really cool, big chorus.  That song is classic Sting and is very Police sounding.

This isn't my favorite Sting album.  I can't get over the soprano sax sprayed all over the record.  I'd be happy not hearing this album for a couple years.
