I guess the point is: Sting has so much brilliant work, both as a solo artist, and as lead voice and bass player of The Police, that it's more than a challenge to put his best material in one album, like 'Fields of Gold' tries to. I'd say this is the only one flaw the album has, and it's definitely not one about which much can be done -the man is simply a genius!
This album actually is comprised of a little more than just greatest hits. The first and last songs are previously unreleased. 'When we dance' it's such a beautiful tune... I remember every time I listen to it when I got my copy of the CD. At the time I was living in Ithaca, NY and it was winter (November of 94). I remember opening the window and looking at the snow flakes falling to this song. So beautiful... 'This Cowboy Song' is a very contagious tune as well; not too 'cowboy' sounding in the country sense of the word, but very good anyway.
Other than these two songs, there is another gift for the attentive Sting fan: the track 'Why should I cry for you' (from the album "Soul Cages") is a different version from the original. In my opinion, though, the original one sounded much better (it reminds me of the sound of Peter Gabriel -no wonder, since Sting's line-up for that album was almost the same as PG's!)
The rest of the songs almost need no comment. They're all without exception great, as great is the musical legacy of Sting. If you don't have any albums by him, this will serve as an acceptable compilation of his first four albums. "Soul Cages," his third one (and in general, the least understood one) is not well covered by this album, so you will have to get yourself a copy of this album that Sting wrote drowning in the sorrow left by the death of his father. Once you get these two albums (to the very, very least) you need to treat yourself to "Brand New Day", his most recent production, and try to catch him live the next time he drops by your town: you'll be so impressed, most likely you'll go out and buy the rest of the albums by him you don't already own!
