iTunes Review

The Police were at the top of the world as international superstars when this album was first released in 1981. Constant touring and a seemingly never ending supply of hit material got them there, and this album continued their run as the hottest, hippest band on the planet. "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic" became the trio's largest worldwide hit, while killers like the ethereal "Spirits In the Material World" and the reggae influenced "One World (Not Three)" became staples on FM radio. With Ghosts group reaches a perfect balance of songs that are both hit-worthy and hip, and this became their biggest selling album. After it's release, the Police would take a two- year hiatus to explore other creative outlets, from acting (Sting), to soundtrack scores (Stewart Copeland), but Ghosts captures them at the top of their game.

A welcome addition

When Ghost in the Machine was released, it marked a new turn for the Police. They'd already moved towards more cerebral rock with Zenyatta Mondatta, but this introspective, melodic gem had a more polished feel.

The rough edges of genius

Around 1981, The Police had almost finished polishing their music to its peak, and this album shows it. "Every Little Thing" is a brilliant track, as are "Spirits in the Material World" and "One World (Not Three)" Some songs, like "Hungry For You", show where they needed some work, but the gems are worth digging through the occasional lackluster track. The Song to watch out for: The Secret Journey. Dark and foreboding, it is perhaps the most brilliant of the songs on the album, but its always been overshadowed by the radio singles

The Police's Best Album

What a beautiful thing it is to follow a band, being there with heart and soul, and to then witness them hit a plataeu that just blows you away, and force you to thoroughly evaluate and dissect their most recent issue in question. There is no such thing as a bad Police record or song, in my opinion, but this album is just amazing. G

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...
