Mercury Falling is one of Sting's weaker works. The set of songs aren't memorable and most feed into the perception that Sting is pretentious.

Singles like I'm So Happy I Cant Stop Crying are corny.

Hung My Head and Hounds of Winter are good songs.

I generally skip over this album in the Sting catalogue

Only just good album. Best 10 songs average is 79,7/100 and the album can get good 80/100. Bit too melancholy for me. Best songs are "I'm so happy..." 90/100, followed by "I hung my head", "Let your soul..." and "You still touch me" all 80/100. All other songs average 65-75/100.
Genre: Pop Rock
