To hardcore Police fans of yesteryear, this album could have been construed as a disappointment. Who cares? The fact that this album was a monumental best seller that appealed to millions of people is a testament to its finely crafted pop tunes.

Sure, there are a couple of dogs on this album, namely the excrutiating Mother, the less than overwhelming Murder by Numbers, and the pointless Miss Gradenko. However, these tracks are more than made up for by the searing intensity of Synchronicity II, the brilliant Wrapped Around Your Finger, and galactico uber hit Every Breath You Take.

Here we have a three piece band at the very height of their song writing and musical powers - the perfect time to call it a day.

Although all their albums are perfetly structured and worth a listen nothing ever sounded quite like Synchronicity. From start to finish the album grabs your attention with key songs like the title track, Walking in Your Footsteps and O My God! Side Two however is where the gems are and is worth the buying price alone. King of Pain, Every Breath you Take and my personal favourite Police track ever Wrapped Around Your Finger are beautiful songs with well written melodies and as always fantastic drumming and production. A perfect note for the police to finish on, and album with all but one filler (The for some unlistenable Mother). Apart from this minor glitch a great final album, if you were only going to get one Police album, get this one, even just for side 2!

The Police's 5th and final studio album represents, for the most part, a superb valedictory effort. There are a number of really beautifully crafted tracks including the haunting strains of 'King Of Pain', the insistent chug of 'Every Breath You Take' and the utterly brilliant 'Wrapped Around Your Finger' which possibly qualifies as my favourite Police track of all-time. The first half of the album veers between the sublime ('Walking In Your Footsteps' and the thunderously good 'Synchronicity 2') and the ridiculous (the atrocious Summers' dirge 'Mother' and Copeland's rather lightweight 'Miss Gradenko'). Even so, there is so much to appreciate on this album that I'm prepared to overlook its weak points and award it a 5 star rating.

Bearing in mind that the band broke up a year or so after recording this album, its not difficult to think that this sounds almost like a sting solo album in places. It's certainly unlike anything The Police had recorded previously, much of the reggae influence is absent here(but not totally), and in its place a more straight ahead rock sound (check "Synchronicity II"). There isn't a single dud track on here, it's also probably their most diverse album to date as well. There is so much more on this to enjoy than "Every Breath You Take". Fave tracks include "Synchronicity I", "Mother", "Wrapped around your finger" and the brooding "Tea in the sahara". If you don't own any Police records, get this and "Regatta de Blanc" first.

This is the final visit of The Police to the studio (with the exception of the horribly revamped Don't Stand So Close To Me) and it's a good way to go out - arguably their best album. Musically diversifying still further, this ranges from dreamy songs like Tea In The Sahara and Wrapped Around Your Finger to out-and-out rock with the brilliantly dark Synchronicity II, which still makes me laugh with delight - "we try to shout above the din of our rice krispies"! Lryically and musically superior to all their previous efforts, it is a fitting final offering from a great band. It has to be 5 stars for this one.

Most bands peak then slowly released weaker and weaker albums until they decide to call it a day. The Police were the exception. They went out on a high with Synchronicity. It's a album of two half's, I'm not a fan of either Synchronicity song and Summers and Copeland songs are absolutely suicidal. It's like they were trying to sabotage Sting's perfect album.

There second half or side two is incredible all 4 original are masterpieces in my opinion. Choosing between them is like choosing between your kids. They contain some of the most passionate and honest song writing ever recorded.

This album will always have a place in my heart. They don't make 'em like this anymore.

This was another really good Police album... I love the sound these guys could generate together... And this album is packed full of gems... The sound is as tight and as interlocking as ever... Dare I say that Stewart Copeland is as accomplished a percussionist as Neil Peart? I think he might be... And dare I say also, that Andy Summers is a better guitarist than The Edge even though when he uses some delay, there are some similarities? I think that is true too... Worth owning... but then all their albums are...

The Police's last studio album contained one of their best known hit singles in "Every Breath You Take" but the track is rather an oddity on the album as the band's sound became more expansive on this album (progressive?) than ever before barely resembling the rock/reggae crossover they so well exploited on early albums.
Like all other Police albums, I like this album alot as overall, the songwriting is of a high quality, the production is good and the album sounds good to listen to. For me, the standout tracks are "Walking In Your Footsteps", "Mother" (Don't ask me why - I just think it is great that Andy Summers was able to get this mad song on the album - think Oedipus Complex), "King of Pain", "Wrapped Around Your Finger" and "Tea in the Sahara" - at least half the album is fab!
A great way to bow out on i must say...
