Favourite album of the Police. Solid songs all around, but the singles are the strongest part of the song. "Every Breath You Take" is a bona fide classic at this point.

From Sandrof1969 02/17/2018 15:33
Ultimo atto dell'avventura Police con Sting che mi pare già orientato, come tipo di canzoni, verso la carriera solista, soprattutto nel lato A; il lato B è il solito pop marca Police, non solo per "Every breath you take". Qualche buona o ottima canzone da inserire nelle raccolte, più che un album veramente valido in toto.

Anyone else think the first half is an absolute artistic triumph (comparable to "OK Computer" in terms of tone) and that the second half pales in comparison?

The first half is dark, expansive, and quite experimental, even beyond "Mother." Love the ringing "they say the meek shall inherit the earth" in "Walking in Your Footsteps", an otherwise foreboding tale, almost German-operatic. I love "Miss Gradenko" too- especially as I enter the workforce and almost feel the temptation to submit to the technocracy. "Synchronicity II" is maybe the centerpiece with its implausible yet still spine-tingling tale of the Loch Ness monster rising to devour the problems of the ordinary man. It's a searing and revelatory set of songs that really deserve a lot more praise.

The second half is fine in terms of pop- I like the ringing 80s sound and elements continue the expansiveness of the first half- "that's my soul up there", but goodness this album really ends with a long whimper.

Great album...except for "Mother"...that one's just plain bad. It's an excellent album overall...but yeah, that track really sucks....

Very inchoherent album for me. Timeless songs as 'Synchronicity II' and 'O My God' alternated with experimental stuff such as 'Mother' works rather confusing.

Surely I'm in love with some monumental songs on the album but the general concept escapes me.

Tracks 1-5 are terrible, but 6-10 are excellent.

this is by far my least favorite Police album. I think there is a little over reach based on Every Breath You Take being such a big hit. Regatta and Ghost are much better albums than this
