iTunes Review

This album contains concerts from two different periods in The Police's career, illustrating how much the trio changed over the course of just a few years. The first half is taken from a 1979 show when the band were just coming into their own. There's still ample evidence of their punky beginnings ("Next to You," "Fall Out") amid the trademark fusions of reggae and rock ("Roxanne," "The Bed's Too Big Without You"). The second half is from a pair of 1983 shows on the band's final tour. Both the songwriting and the sound had become more subtle and sophisticated, with art-pop hits like "King of Pain" and "Wrapped Around Your Finger" foreshadowing Sting's solo career.

How could you give theese bad ratings?

The Police is a great band, better yet, a great live CD! They Perform great and sound way better live then on record!

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...
