Anyone who ever listened to The Police would know that Sting harbored ambitions beyond the limitations of one particular style. His former band may have come together during the punk and new wave heyday, but their pop nous and incorporation of reggae ensured that they stood out from their contemporaries. And when it came to carving out a solo career, Sting continued to ignore all notion of boundaries.

Through much of the 90s, Sting focused on his songcraft, releasing perhaps his most straightforwardly radio-friendly albums since The Police's Synchronicity. Issued in 1993 and shooting to No. 2 in both the US and UK, Ten Summoner's Tales found Sting in total command of his skills, creating a perfect pop album (with no fewer than seven singles worldwide, among them "If I Ever Lose My Faith In You)" that shot to No. 2 in both the US and UK.

Its follow-up, 1996's Mercury Falling, continued in the same vein, as Sting warded off both grunge and Britpop, emerging as a mature songwriter working at the peak of his powers. The album yielded two Grammy nominations for Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for "Let Your Soul Be Your Pilot."
