Note that title: it's the Best of 25 Years, Sting's career-encompassing box set, not a greatest-hits album, so this 12-song collection misses some hit singles. That said, the big ones are here -- "If You Love Somebody Set Them Free," "We'll Be Together," "Fragile," "If I Ever Lose My Faith in You" -- along with a couple of choice album tracks and Police live cuts that make this a solid sampler of Sting's solo work.
