Album Review: 'Fields of Gold, The Best of Sting 1984-1994' (1994)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Lead Performance: Sting

Addicted to lounge-jazz tapestries and proverbs pretending to be profound, Sting ranks with rock's creepiest goody-goodies. But he's melodic enough (''Fortress Around Your Heart'' and ''Englishman in New York'') that his pretension barely gets in ; the way. His best solo hits could almost pass for the Police. B
