With autumn comes cooler weather, and Sting...

I'm not sure why, but the arrival of cooler weather seems to make me want to listen to my Sting albums. And that's fortunate, because I don't think he's made an album I don't like.

Last year's "If On A Winter's Night..." is one of the most perfectly-named albums I've ever listened to. I am saving this one for the proper cold weather, but I bought it last year and found it to be the most aptly-titled album I own. It was marketed as a Christmas album but is anything but. It's a frigid winter album -- a low-key record that has an ambience to match the cold, windy, and desolate winter outside your window.

I wrote a review on Amazon when I first bought it, so I'll leave it at that.
