Sting - ...Nothing Like the Sun Nothing Like The Sun is what a big-budget pop record should be. Highlighting the major star talent of Sting, Nothing Like The Sun also features an A-list producer and "studio" musicians who include Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, Manu Katche’, Branford Marsalis, Andy Summers and more to create a pop record that musically will pass the test of time. You'll need a 5.1 surround sound processor and 5.1 speakers in your system to fully enjoy the disc, but what good AudioRevolution.com reader doesn’t have at least a happening 5.1 surround system at this point? Nothing Like The Sun is a pleasant mix of upbeat pop hits along with thought-provoking political statements. Compared to Sting’s more recent work, much of which has been remastered to 5.1 DTS CDs (read AudioRevolution.com reviews of Sting’s Brand New Day and Ten Summoner’s Tales, as well as The Police: Every Breath You Take - Greatest Hits in 5.1), Nothing Like The ...

Various Artists - Big Band Christmas artist: Big Band Christmas   function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); album: Various Artists format: 5.1 CD label: DTS Entertainment performance: 8 sound 9 reviewed by: Richard Elen This album consists of a round dozen well-known Christmas carols arranged for big band. Much as you might expect something like this to be pure corn, don’t dismiss it out of hand, as it’s actually extremely worthwhile: the arrangements are very impressive, the playing is excellent, and the crisp digital recording shows off 5.1 surround-sound very effectively.

Sting - Ten Summoner's Tales artist: Sting album: Ten Summoner's Tales format: 5.1 CD label: DTS Entertainment release year: 2000 performance: 8 sound 8.5 reviewed by: Jerry Del Colliano Sting is so consistent. When you flip open the jewel case on the Ten Summoner’s Tales DTS 20 bit CD you see all of the Sting solo and Police albums. There isn’t even a mediocre record on the list. Ten Summoner’s Tales is no exception. Extremely well written, exquisitely recorded with the some of the best musicians in the world, there is no wonder why Ten Summoner’s Tales was such a success.
