All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Note that title: it's the Best of 25 Years, Sting's career-encompassing box set, not a greatest-hits album, so this 12-song collection misses some hit singles. That said, the big ones are here -- "If You Love Somebody Set Them Free," "We'll Be Together," "Fragile," "If I Ever Lose My Faith in You" -- along with a couple of choice album tracks and Police live cuts that make this a solid sampler of Sting's solo work.

    Song Hits of 25 Years

    Sting: The Best of 25 Years is a really well-assembled collection among some of his finest musical gems. Many of the songs are from both the 80's and the 90's. My top three favorite songs in this collection are "We'll Be Together", "Fields of Gold", and "Whenever I Say Your Name". "We'll Be Together" is a great musical story of meeting up with someone for a happy time. "Fields of Gold" appears to be about experiencing the feeling of joy. "Whenever I Say Your Name" is a good musical duet with Mary J Blige that seems to symbolize the strong emotional feelings of love. Sting:The Best of 25 Years is best for many who like any of the songs by Sting.
