The Police suffered from writer's block in completing this album and thus filled in the running time with B-sides, songs invented in live jams, and mock comic songs by drummer Stewart Copeland. Unfortunately, that's just what it sounds like- there's no hidden beauty here. Even the successful singles really are "white reggae" in the sense that they are more appropriation than innovation. The worst record by this band in my opinion. Great playing by all the musicians, though.

A good album. It works mostly because of their playing -much better than the songwriting-.

Not as good as their debut but still high quality esp for the 70s. Walking on the Moon is my favorite Police track

The second Police album doesn't quite have th a same consistency as, outlandos d'amour, but is still a very good record. It's a more challenging LP than it's predecessor but it still features some fantastic songs. Walking on the moon, and, message in a bottle, are two classic singles, but there are other highlights especially on, it's alright for you, and, the beds to big without you. A very good album then from a great band.

My favorite Police album. Some dislike the increased songwriting contribution of Stewart Copeland but I enjoy his songs and here they keep things more punk oriented than if the pop-inclined Sting would have written the entire album. In fact, although "Message in a Bottle" is an undeniably epic song, "Does Everyone Stare" bests it for me; the ultimate mixed-tape song for that certain girl you're pining for.

Good album, but better the previous. Too many artifices, the firs is more direct.
