Format: Audio CD
It's not often that you'll find reggae superstars paying tribute to the Babylon (slang term for the police), so this album is certainly unusual in at least that respect.
There are a few stand-out performances by reggae luminaries like Aswad, who does a great version of "Roxanne", and Steel Pulse who perform "Can't Stand Losing You", but Maxi Priest doesn't do justice to "Message in a Bottle" at all. Sting also guests on two of the better songs, one with Ziggy Marley.
As Police covers, there's nothing really different other than the reggae rhythms, except perhaps for "Spirits in the Material World" by Pato Banton and Sting, where Pato improvises a bit on the chorus.
An interesting novelty album, and quite listenable, but does nothing to showcase or enhance the music of either The Police or the reggae artistes.

If you ever liked Police, even restrospectively, this makes a fine addition to your collection. I've had it years and I keep fishing it out - there are some tracks you'll want to join in even if you can't sing - try the car, and be prepared for strange looks. Astonishing, with only two weak tracks.

This compilation of tunes was well received, by the selection of artist, who preformed them,and sounded very good and had a quality production too.

I'm not a fan of compilations but this album combines two things I really like, reggae and the Police. I first heard it drunk in Hermosa Beach while attending a ritual sacrifice.
5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular island-style interpretation of a great band 2 Dec. 2013

One of the great cover albums of all time, with the show stopper being Shinehead's "Jamaican in New York." Sublime.
