iTunes Editors’ Notes

On their second album, The Police fully fleshed out their signature sound, sanding off some of their first album's punkier edges and diving deeper into the rock/reggae blend they'd first explored with "Roxanne" on their debut. "Walking on the Moon" and "The Bed's Too Big Without You" in particular are propelled by Sting's swooping, reggae-soaked bass lines and Stewart Copeland's dub-inflected drumming. The more rock-oriented "Message in a Bottle" earned heavy airplay in the U.S., eventually becoming a classic-rock radio staple. Copeland wrote or cowrote more than half the tunes, from the stark, moody "Does Everyone Stare" to the searing rocker "It's Alright for You."

Amazing

For all the people who think The Police aren't talented......this album will prove you wrong...

Regatta de Blanc

This is, in my opinion, the best Police album. It's one of a small handful of albums that I can listen to from start to finish without ever wanting to skip past a song. The only one that I even think about skipping is Message In a Bottle, but that's just because I've heard it so many times.

Give more than the singles a chance.

If you only listen to "Every Breath", "Every Little Thing", Roxanne", etc. you are missing out on a lot of great music. Try a song like "Deathwish" or "Bring On The Night" from this album for something just as good as the standard radio clasics. Buy the album and just let it play from end to end. If you like The Police enough to be checking out individual songs from their albums then you will not go wrong diving into their great 2nd disc. Actually you won't go wrong getting all of their stuff (you don't make the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame for nothing).

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...
