EDITORS’ NOTES

On their fifth and final studio album, The Police stretch far beyond the punchy New Wave that made their name. “Walking in Your Footsteps” conjures rainforest atmospheres with pulsing digital synths, and the frantic “Mother” deploys Middle Eastern reeds. But the album’s core is its trio of timeless singles: the lilting, reggae-tinged “Wrapped Around Your Finger,” the wistfully atmospheric “King of Pain,” and “Every Breath You Take,” with no-nonsense lyrics and an unforgettable guitar melody cutting straight to the heart of desire.
