Sting: ...Nothing Like The Sun (A&M)

Jeffrey Morgan, Creem, March 1988

STRADDLING A fine line between LP and EP, this almost-but-not-quite twofer boasts 12 tunes thinly spread out over four sides of plastic. That's three songs per side, kihz — and seeing as how each side contains somewhere between 11 and 16 minutes worth of music per go-round, you don't need no calculator to figure out how much blast you're getting for your buck.

Total word count of piece: 509
