Already in with the Police, Sting had carved a very successful career as a solo artist. Too many fans however, Sting’s solo work went too far down the Adult Contemporary road and lacked a lot of the substance that the Police had. This isn’t to say, that his songwriting as a solo artist was sub par, because it wasn’t. However, it just wasn’t as clever as his previous work, and this is a weird case of being in the shadow of one’s self.
