Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 2/21/91
4 Stars - Excellent - "...Sting's most ambitious record yet, and maybe his best...the nine pieces are minidramas of intensity and will...Sting's poetic language makes for a sort of sensory theater, darkly lit, almost Gothic. The effect at times is a bit overwhelming, but it's gripping too, the tossing and turning of an anxious superman."
Q - 2/91
4 Stars - One of Q Magazine's 50 best albums of 1991.
Stereo Review (4/91) - "...the album is not an entertainment so much as a meditation...an important work..."

Sting's most personal solo album (it was written in response to the death of his father), THE SOUL CAGES is also his most ambitious. Many of the tracks (Island of Souls", "Mad About You") verge (impressively) on classical art song territory. For some, however, the good news here is that Sting is playing bass again; his simple yet effective lines are heard to particular advantage on the upbeat pop gem "All This Time." Another high point is "Saint Agnes and the Burning Town," a flamenco-inflected instrumental tour de force unlike anything in Sting's catalogue.
