Many years have passed since those summer days...

#11 - Ten Summoner's Tales (Sting) 1993

Of all my top 25 albums, this one has been in my possession for the longest amount of time. I owe my affection for his work to my stepmother, who has been a long-time fan. I remember hearing Fields of Gold for the first time during a mid-inning break at a Braves game in 1993. It instantly (and secretly) became my swoon song for all of my 15 minute infatuations during middle school. It still is, and like so much of Sting's work, this album exemplifies his unmatched ability to craft song around story.
