iTunes Review

A volatile combination of three distinctive artists, the Police accomplished much in their brief but productive career. Their finest moment was their final one: 1983's Synchronicity, is as satisfying a farewell album as any rock band has made. While musical sophistication was always their strong suit, the trio outdid themselves on these far-ranging, imaginatively executed tracks. Drummer Stewart Copeland's rhythmic complexity brings convulsive fire to "Synchronicity II." The jazz-seasoned virtuosity of guitarist Andy Summers achieves tautly drawn urgency on "King of Pain," and seductive heat on "Wrapped Around Your Finger." Sting's always-evocative vocals are infused with passion and drama, and his songwriting touches perfection - the simmering elegance of "Every Breath You Take" may still be his finest moment as a composer. The talents of all three Police members intermesh flawlessly throughout, playing with a smooth finish that doesn't obscure the music's quirkier edges. Synchronicity concluded the Police's now-legendary career with a genuine blaze of glory.

Customer Reviews

Their best album.

Originally released in 1983, this is just about the best album of that decade. The song writing is brilliant; 'Every breath you take' has one of the most distinctive, yet simple sounds ever. Sting's lyrics stand out, especially the biting narative on 'Synchronicity II'. The album has very high production values. It has a lean, crisp sound and kept the symbols which went missing from much of the music of the time. Each instrument and the vocals are as clear as the proverbial bell. If you are a fan of the drums Stewart Copeland's jazzy style and timing is a joy to listen to, try 'Miss Gradenko'. Andy Summers gets to pluck, strum and play with the guitar showcasing what a talented musician he is, try 'Walking in your footsteps'. Their best album.

Probely their best.

This album sounds like a greatest hits album. While it sounds odd having the rather heavy synchronicity II right next to Every breath you take. the whole album is full of songs which all amazing, lyricaly very good (though it does feel like sting has began to get ready for his solo caree) and musicaly stunning with great drum work by steward copeland and intrsting work by summers. The two songs which however aboustly terrible are O My god and Mother, other than that every song is worth litning to.

An Absolute Masterpiece!!

I listened to this again the other night and forgot how much I love this album. It has everything from the captivating Synchronicity2 to Miss Gradenko which is brilliant. Forget Every Breath and instead immerse yourself in Tea In The Sahara, the best track on this album. It was a great loss to music when they split and unfortunately Sting's efforts after Blue Turtles have pailed in to nothingness and will never again shine as bright as the trio on form.

Nominally, the Police were punk rock, but that's only in the loosest sense of the term. The trio's nervous, reggae-injected pop/rock was punky, but it wasn't necessarily punk. All three members were considerably more technically proficient than the average punk or new wave band. Andy Summers had a precise guitar attack that created dense, interlocking waves of sounds and effects. Stewart Copeland could play polyrhythms effortlessly. And Sting, with his high, keening voice, was capable of constructing...
