Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Weathering numerous changes in style over more than 20 years in the fickle kingdom of rock 'n' roll -- and even engineering a few of those changes himself -- Sting still reigns as a maker of classy, vital music. With ...All This Time he has released his definitive live statement. Recorded in Tuscany, Italy, at a special, intimate concert by Sting and a band of international virtuosos -- including reknowned bass master Christian McBride -- the album captures a reflective, revelatory rendering of the man's music. The centerpiece of the DVD companion to ...All This Time is the performance itself, which features innovative arrangements of such Police and solo-era classics as "Don't Stand So Close to Me," "If You Love Them Set Them Free," "Roxanne," "If I Ever Lose My Faith in You," and "Every Breath You Take." Bonuses include a making-of documentary, rehearsal footage, and additional songs not heard on the album. Tracks are as follows:
  • Fragile
  • 1000 Years
  • Perfect Love Gone Wrong
  • All This Time
  • Hounds of Winter
  • Mad About You
  • Don't Stand So Close to Me
  • When We Dance
  • Dienda
  • Roxanne
  • If You Love Someone Set Them Free
  • Brand New Day
  • Fields of Gold
  • Moon over Bourbon Street
  • If I Ever Lose My Faith in You
  • Every Breath You Take

    Any true Sting fan should own this!

    I saw the original airing of this program on PBS. The music is wonderful, but the decision to go ahead with the performance at the scheduled time, on Sept. 11, 2001, was truly inspirational. Sting gathered together an amazing group of musicians, and the rehearsal footage and interviews adds to the impact of the performance itself.

    When the genius stumbles a little

    I was unaware this DVD existed, but when I inadvertently heard some clips was enthusiastically anticipating the full version. As an inveterate Sting fan, I often overlook what others might criticize, but not so this time. The package should be assessed for the two parts which comprise it: the documentary and the concert. The first, documentary portion is amazingly revealing and a real treat. The interviews are insightful and candid. It's refreshing that Sting continues to display more of his inner-self as he grows older and mellows. He also allows for a very accurate picture of music backstage (reminiscent of, but much better than ''Into the Night''): interspersed between the cameos of band members, there are arrangements-in-the making and complete versions of some, including the music video of Fragile, both as it was conceived and in its final form. The second, more lengthy, concert is less satisfying. In the wake of 9/11, the band is noticeably reserved, as is Sting who suffers markedly from a very weakened voice. The modified renditions of familiar Sting songs are intriguing, but their presentation is not quite up to the master's usual standard. Overall- this is worth witnessing: You'll learn more about Sting and further appreciate his genius, but the concert was just not his best performance.

    The most wonderful Sting release yet!

    For those of you who missed the A&E special this was done for...and are Sting fans...this DVD is a MUST.....don't think just because you might have bought the CD you have 'it all'..you don't...there are 3 hours on the entire program...many of the live programs songs are taken from rehersal format and blended into the story of making the free concert at Sting's home in Tuscany. But Sept 11th hit, and the world was not the same anymore. Sting, hit as we all were, felt he needed to continue with the performance - but the CD version is the inprompt version that came out of the shock of Sept 11th as the date for the performance at Sting's residence was SEPT 11! This is a comerative for all to SEE, not just hear parts of, and it marks one of the most fantastic performances ever by Sting and his band....I honestly can close my eyes and think I am hearing Miles Davis play when the riffs of Chris Botti ring out. Bravo Sting. We really needed this at this time.

    FROM "ROXANNE" TO DAY EVERY SOUL ON EARTH FELL COLLECTIVELY TO THEIR KNEES

    THE FIRST TIME I HEAR "ROXANNE" HEADING MY CAR TO VIRGINIA BEACH,I KNEW.WHOEVER THIS BAND ARE WILL "MAKE IT",IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS.THEN A FULL 360 DEGREE TURN AND GORDON SUMNERS,AKA "STING" REACHES A MATURITY UNMATCHED.AS FAR AS CAREERS GO-NOT A "ONE BAND HITS WUNDERKIN".THE REVERENCE OF THAT GHASTLY DAY ON THE EAST COAST OF USA IN 2001 WAS IMPECCABLE RESTRAINT AND A UNABASHED TRUE UNDERSTANDING OF PROFOUND GRIEF. PBS BROUGHT US ALL INTO A "SAFE" MOMENTARY HAVEN OF MUSIC.CONCERN THAT AMERICANS WOULD TURN THEIR COLLECTIVE BACKS WITH A MIDDLE-EASTERN BORN SINGER, STING ALLOWED HIS VOICE TO BE HEARD AND WE WERE ALL BETTER FOR THAT MONUMENTAL DECISION.TO PASS UP THIS DVD IS MISSING A POINT OF SELF UNDERSTANDING AND PROFOUND KNOWLEDGE WE ALL HAVE SOULS AND EVERY RELIGION HAS ANGELS...

    Music does not come together better than this!

    Without a doubt one of the best albums ever made! Sting took all the musicians and back-up singers into his Tuscany villa for a month to rehearse and get it right! The concert was scheduled for 9/11/2001. We all know about that date! He starts with Fragile in the wake...Chris Botti plays trumpet as a simple back-up musician before his own break-out career. SO many excellent musicians in one concert. This is a must for your musical library, if just as a reminder of that fateful day! These arrangements are refined to perfection. The same songs on earlier CDs were more amateur. I appreciate most every kind of music from contemporary Christian to classical and this is one of the best ever!
