Intricate lyrics. Hypnotic back-beats. Forays into the weird and wonderful world of alternate musical genres. Just when you thought Sting was all washed up and done for, he comes out with Brand New Day--just because he can. It would be wrong to dismiss Sting's latest effort as another pawn for adult contemporary radio stations; with such gems as the audio tantra "Desert Rose" and the black humour bluegrass-influenced "Fill Her Up," Brand New Day is not tired, grating or boring. Rather, it is eclectic, cultured and demonstrative of Sting's continued evolution as a master musician.
