None of the guests makes much of an impression here, but neither does Sting, since this is an album that puts sound over song or performance. Sacred Love is to Brand New Day what Mercury Falling was to Ten Summoner's Tales - a fussy, overworked stab at maturity, one that has impeccable craft but is obscured by its own meticulousness. It is professional to a fault, using its maturity and preciseness to obscure the fact that the songs don't really work

Sacred Love" on SACD is further proof that audiophiles have lousy taste in music. I'm sure the DSD encoding offers superb imaging, a wide soundstage and unparalelled audio fidelity of Sting's new-age whale music. Thanks, but I'd rather listen to my mangled cassette of "London Calling" on a boombox again. For this huge Sting, surround and DSD fan, this album was a complete miss, miss, miss. I hope this isn't a trend, but Sacred Love seems to be one of those late-career, half-hearted, bored rich artist formulaic, committee-driven pieces of white bread.

Album Sacred Love (2003). Label A&M Records. Ada Dyer, Bahija Rhapl, Donna Gardier, Joy Rose, Katreese Barnes, Lance Ellington. Sting "Sacred Love" (2003) album. Send Your Love Lyrics.

Sacred Love is the seventh studio album by Sting. The album was released on 29 September 2003. Some songs like "Inside" and "Dead Man's Rope" were well received; and Sting had experimented with new sounds, in particular the more rock-influenced "This War".

Sacred Love is a great example of Sting's abundant talent. It's one of those things where I feel like I'm digging for treasure on the beach every time I listen to it, and every time, I get another little nugget, another little something to like even more. Sting has been singing about love since his days with The Police, but he reveals a more mature, though still passionate, perspective on this album. Like many Sting fans, what I have admired most about his music is the poetry of his lyrics and this album does not disappoint.
