I Love the Police, but ....
on 1 May 2018
I have followed this band since 78/79 and bought all the Vinyl albums and bought the Police boxset with B Sides etc, but i do lie , 1 lie, I didnt buy this album, too many lows among the great highs.
1) Synchronicity 1 , great opener , what a track.
2) Walking in your footsteps, must have been a sing for his young son Joe at the time not much to this.
3) O my God , ok , again nothing special sounds like this could have been on the last 2 albums .
4) Mother , what is this abomination, the worse Police song ever.
5).Miss Gradenko , Better , again this could have been on the previous 2 albums, just ok.
6) Synchronicity 2 , Just as great as the first Synchronicity, brilliant .
7) Every Breath you take, All time classic
8) .King of Pain, Again the Police at their brilliant best, great Sting lyrics, love it.
9).Wrapped around your finger, A good song , better than many on here.
10) Tea in the Sahara , Excellent brooding song that brings hairs on the back of the neck.
11). Murder by numbers ( extra cassette track, at the time) ok , more of a bside .
Well their most well known album I suppose, but loads of filler , their worst album, but the best songs bring it to a 3/5 a real mixed bag!
