Nothing Like The Sun" is chock-full of imagery like this. In "Be Still My Beating Heart", a song that constantly changes and loops back onto itself when listened to carefully, Sting sings about his heart drowning in a sea of emotion. While this sentiment might sound trite (or, God forbid, cliche) in another performer's hands, here, it draws parallels to the sort of deep melancholy Sting is adept at cultivating. Still, he doesn't fully surrender to it, at least not in the first half of the album.

Nothing Like The Sun - a powerful, often hypnotic album that blends jazz and rock styles into a thoughtful suite of twelve songs about love, politics and the meaning of the individual life - avoids the self-conscious stiffness that marred Sting’s first solo LP, The Dream of the Blue Turtles. Whereas that album often seemed to be merely the sterile enactment of its fusion-jazz ambitions. othing Like the Sun flows naturally

This is an album where the only up-tempo track, the only trifle - the cheerfully stiff white-funk "We'll Be Together" - was added at the insistence of the label because they believed there wasn't a cut on the record that could be pulled as a single, one that would break down the doors to mainstream radio. And they were right, since everything else here is too measured, calm, and deliberately subtle to be immediate (including the intentional throwaway, "Rock Steady"). So, why is it a better album than its predecessor? Because Sting doesn't seem to be trying.

Nothing Like the Sun (рус. Совсем не похоже на солнце) - второй студийный альбом британского рок-музыканта Стинга, был издан 13 октября 1987 года. Название для пластинки было навеяно строчкой из 130-го сонета Уильяма Шекспира ( My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun - Глаза моей возлюбленной совсем не похожи на солнце ), которую Стинг также использовал в песне Sister Moon. Кроме того, музыкант добавил, что на это название его вдохновила уличная встреча с пьяницей, которому Стинг процитировал сонет в ответ на его назойливый вопрос: Насколько прекрасна луна?.
