Too much faux reggae and Sting's voice is thin. However, both Stewart Copland and Andy Summers went on to prove to be excellent musicians in other genres post-Police.

Police and Bruce Springsteen are the flag bearers of Dad Rock.

The oddball of new wave; easily one of the most successful acts of the movement, and yet they lack the coolness or finesse of their lowering charting contemporaries. A band with a so-so sound and a series of hits that never really hit the mark in my book.

To quote from Don't Stand So Close; "He starts to shake and cough, just like the old man in that book by Navakov." Really Sting? He is an ex English teacher, I think you'll find better work from the worst of his pupils! Still quite like the band though.

Compilations shouldn't be allowed in the 20 most rated songs of a band, when you have four, "Every Breathe You Take" in the ratings...

I think Sting And The Police have twenty odd good singles and a good album but they are more about the singles. Most of their singles have stood the test of time.

As for The Real Truth... This is purely based on albums, not an overall package of live, song writing, importance, influence et cetera. Obviously not enough people rate their albums now, so get over it!

3 extra terrestres , voilà ce que je retiens de ce groupe de légende pour moi . Un concert en plein air au Touquet pour confirmer la maitrise de leur art (quel batteur...) . Et des albums sublimes dans cette fin des années 70 au moment de l'explosion du punk.

They are more intimate and skillfull than most people think of, even thou they albums cleary have songs that stand out from the rest. Great fusion of punk and reggae based music with similar styles, they are instantly recognisable and really deserve to be in the top 100 of any artist poll.

The Police are not more important than The Beatles. I am not such a raging homer that I would suggest such things. It IS fun to debate, but I have to include truth. Everybody has their own favorite. Being intellectually honest tells me that Arctic Monkeys have ABSOLUTELY NO BUSINESS ranking higher than The Police in any category of historical importance. Fandom is one thing. Honesty is another.
