iTunes Review

This double-length anthology follows the world-beating trio's entire career. Over the course of 28 cuts, we follow the rapid evolution of one of the world's biggest bands, moving from the punk-infused frenzy of their first (non-LP) single, "Fall Out," to the early flowerings of their reggae–new wave fusion ("Can't Stand Losing You," "Roxanne"). From there, the band's sound expanded exponentially, incorporating world music grooves ("Reggatta De Blanc," "Bring on the Night"), increasingly arch lyrics ("Don't Stand So Close to Me"), and pure pop hooks ("De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da"). The Police never lost their arresting appeal.

Subset of "Message in a Box"

I'm a huge fan of The Police, so this release is a bit lacking. If you want to glean the great talent of the group, this is the best place to start but it would be best to buy "Message in a Box" - the full version, not available on iTunes - which includes every song released by The Police and a few live and unreleased tunes - for example, "Dead End Job" is a great little rocker missing from this release.

Very nice. But not for the price.

The Police...absolutely legendary - and this list of songs is a nice tribute, albeit incomplete. However, the store-bought box set is better. Why? Because you get more cuts for less money. Someone else mentioned getting it at Target for a few dollars less than on iTunes (with a few more songs)...and at Wal-Mart it's on sale for even less than it is at Target. I thought buying music online was all about bypassing the distribution process, thereby saving money, along with heightened convenience. Not in this case. What's up, iTunes?

The Police

A decent anthology of the Police. Predictable song selection. It's nice having "Fall Out" in the song line up. Sounds are pristine on this CD edition, better than the "Message in a Box" set from the 90's With another 38 minutes of playing time available between the two discs, why stop at 28 songs? How about additional key album tracks? Some B sides or live recordings?" Don't Stand '86" ? Alternate takes?


Formed: 1977 in London, England

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '00s

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...
