I was just a kid when this album came out. I admit at the time I was disappointed. My head was still very much into Reggatta De Blanc. But as I have grown older I've liked this album more and more. I still listen to this album alot even now. The problem with this album is that it verges on the cheesy pop stuff at times, on tracks such as De Do Do Do... and Man In A Suitcase. But when you listen more closely you start to appreciate the creativty of Sting, Summers and Copeland merging together to create a work of art on songs such as Voices Inside My Head and Shadows In The Rain amazing guitars from Summers. To Driven To Tears and When The World Is Running Down... fantastic driving drums and bass. Don't Stand So Close To Me is the all time classic on this album and who could argue? This is probably the poorest of the Police albums but that doesn't mean it isn't any good, in fact it is still a great album.
