My Songs is a total waste of time for a variety of reasons.

On the whole, My Songs is a hysterical act of unfiltered hubris.

A more commercial than artistic style exercise.

Despite the sometimes-jarring changes, the versions on My Songs still sound like the old tunes, raising the question of why Sting even bothered with this project.

Against all odds, Sting has kind of pulled it off.

Belfast Telegraph Belfast Telegraph

His solo songs as well as the Police classics remain quite close to the originals, even if you can see some nuances shifts in detail.

A pleasant reminder of his finer moments.

The Times of London The Times of London (TOP)

For an artist celebrated across several generations, Sting shows that art can never truly set in stone on My Songs.

Classic Sting Nice play list Gordo! Chunk “Murder by Numbers”in there and and it would be perfect. Looking forward to a full listen. Rock

Renewed with fresh new life and spiritual energy This retake is amazing! It adds so much depth, soul and wisdom to the songs you can really feel it...30 or 40 years ago they all seem so fresh and new from a new angle that makes sense now! He has given and given so much to the world and continues to give...all I have is grateful to this great musician Sting. In the grandiose age of social media human disconnect and millennial entitlement there is a bit of hope left...it’s in this soulful music to bring humanity back together, expand love and life! Get this now!!!

C’mom Sting...same old stuff! Stop re-recording the old stuff. The originals were perfect! You are beyond talented, so release only new songs. The past is over...time to move on!
