Sting exists outside of spacetime. If you’d told me this was a Sting album from ’87, right after the Police broke up, I’d believe you. If you told me that Sting released this album last year, I would believe you. If you’d told me that Sting brought a synth back to 1823 and recorded this album on that modern synth, and period instruments, I would also believe you.

All of which is a long way of saying that this album does not feel 90s. It feels Sting. It’s competent and good, but being Sting it does not evoke particularly strong feelings or insights.
