    The Bridge is out of time yet timeless, pure pop class.

    Sometimes the music is too comfortable for such strife, but there is more than enough here to satisfy. The voice still sounds great, too.

    ‘The Bridge’ is so much more than a clever concept album, there are links between each of the songs and the prolific musician takes to the theme like a duck to water (sorry!) and whilst water is the common denominator, it is really about connection - connection between people, life and death and more.

    Happily, he retains the melodic sharpness that characterized 57th & 9th, his last solo album of straight-forward pop tunes. The Bridge isn't quite as crisp and clean as that 2016 effort, yet it moves along at a quick clip.

    The Bridge is Sting at his most-Sting like. [Jan 2022, p.82]
