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.

I bought this album because I wanted to finally explore some of the Police's other early songs, having owned only The Police 2CD compilation and the last two albums. It has buckets of the classic Police 'soundscape' which I love so much. Zenyatta Mondatta is I guess anchored by the two songs that most people probably know best and which were singles- 'Don't Stand So Close To Me' and 'De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da'. Both are classic Police and the latter in particular sends you into that magical Police world of the four elements: Copeland's fabulous drumming, Andy's sublime clean guitar tones and Sting's bass and vocals. 'Driven To Tears'is a competent track with some nice sounds and atmosphere, but the third song 'Voices Inside My Head' is better, a good quasi-instrumental to which Sting adds only two simple lines of lyrics. One of the two forgotten Police classics (for me at least!) on this album which I am delighted to have discovered is 'When The World Is Running Down...', bathed beautifully in Andy Summer's fantastic chorus guitar effects and improved further by an excellent bass line interval in the middle. It ends nicely too with the verse repeating as it fades-out, which I liked a lot. The other great little song is 'Man In A Suitcase', a fairly simple and short ska style song, but its bare sound and upbeat feel makes it really pleasant and for me addictive. This song begins brilliantly with a typically incredible Copeland drum roll to bring the verse in at the beginning- listen out for it! 'Canary in a Coalmine' is a real gem, possibly the third best song after the singles and in my personal top ten Police songs. It's frantic and loopy with great rhyming lyrics.Read more ›

I had this on cassette as a kid in the 1970s. This Re-Mastered CD is a revelation in sound. The bass and drums come alive and really make the songs stand out. Even the few cheesy songs are given a new life. What I find spectacular with this album is the inspiring duo of songs Driven to tears/When the world is running down you make the best of whats still around. These two tracks alone really make this album for me. The way they segue into one-another is awe inspiring. It also contains other classic songs such as Don't stand so close to me and Shadows in the rain.
This is a great album of inspired songs when The Police were at the top.

Possibly the least best of all of their excellent albums but still a lot of good stuff to enjoy. Coming after the first 2 classic albums this feels like something of a disappointing record and was really the beginning of the band becoming a more thoughtful concern and slowing down the tempo. But even the change of musical direction couldn't stunt the creativity and musical excellence that existed within.

Tracks like the well-known 'Don't Stand So Close to Me' and 'De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da' do their jobs memorably insomuch as they are still played on the radio across the world today. But some of the least known songs are also note-worthy. The frenetic 'Canary in a Coalmine' and the ironically jolly 'Bombs Away' are The Police doing what they do best: writing songs of protest and social criticism and the dark recesses of the human psyche to a catchy beat. They would come full circle a few years later with the unbeatable 'Every Breath You Take' but they were already masters of satire even by this stage.

The other tracks that work are 'Driven to Tears' and 'When the World is Running Down...' . 'Driven...' is a subtle song with a lacklustre feel but a killer tune that only becomes apparent after a few listens. 'When the world...' is cheerier and more purposeful but they are still both very different from any track from the first 2 albums.

'Voices inside my Head' and 'Behind My Camel' are almost instrumentals that serve no great purpose. There is nothing particularly wrong with them but compared to 'Regatta de Blanc' their inferior nature is brought to the surface. And the last 3 tracks are relatively hard to like too. The best of these is 'Man in a Suitcase' which is akin to 'Canary...' but not as catchy. 'Shadows in the Rain' is simply too long and too boring.
