Every little song they wrote was magic!,
This review is from: Ghost In The Machine (Audio CD)
The year was 1981 and the Police were on top of the world, musically and lyrically. This album is remembered most for the most beautiful pop song of them all..."every little thing she does is magic..". Not surprisingly it still sounds so fresh and cheerful in 2002. Other high points are
"Spirits in the material world", "Invisible Sun" and the most clever of clever guitar riffs in "Omegaman". "Secret Journey" is testing and tuneful (echos of the "message in a bottle"
guitar sound). Some of the songs are lacking something.. "Rehumanise yourself" and "Demolition man" just don't do anything for me. However on a very bright note , it finishes with the wonderfully gloomy "Darkness"...
Ah..the great '80's!
