Love That Album Episode 29 - Sting - Ten Summoner's Tales

For episode 29 of Love That Album, I’m joined by the wonderful VK Lynne, singer, podcaster (at the terrific List Music Podcast) and obsessive Nightwish fan.

Sting. He has his share of admirers and detractors. There are those who love him for his time as a Police man and hate his solo material decrying it as boring AOR. Some just hate how ubiquitous he is in the media. Putting those external factors aside, I’m a huge admirer of his 1993 album “Ten Summoner’s Tales” with its (mostly) excellent songcraft. He has a crack band, including the great keyboardist David Sancious ex of Springsteen’s E Street Band.

VK and I discuss Ten Summoner’s Tales, and come to strong disagreements over the merits of the production of this record and as to whether Sting is obsessed with stalking. We also hear one of VK’s own great tunes.

Eric Reanimator returns with another Album I Love segment covering an early Queensryche album, knowing VK is a fan of the band.
