    Disclosure: I'm a big Sting fan. Almost all of his albums either resonate or challenge me. The guy is a master musician and very sophisticated song writer. That said, this album doesn't work for me. He's telling a story with a very clear point of view and probably shouldn't be viewed as an album as much as a musical soundtrack....which, in fact, it is. But I'm afraid that Sting raised the bar too high to let Last Ship work for me. The music is quite Celtic in lineage and if that doesn't float your boat, it may be the Last Ship to Sink. The album almost sounds like a Van Morrison/Sting collaboration so if you like both artists, it may work for you. It didn't work for me. Sorry Gordon. Hope the show is a big hit, but the music won't carry it. Full Review »
