4.0 out of 5 stars A Farewell to Kings, 16 Oct. 2003
This review is from: Synchronicity (Audio CD)
The Police's last studio album contained one of their best known hit singles in "Every Breath You Take" but the track is rather an oddity on the album as the band's sound became more expansive on this album (progressive?) than ever before barely resembling the rock/reggae crossover they so well exploited on early albums.
Like all other Police albums, I like this album alot as overall, the songwriting is of a high quality, the production is good and the album sounds good to listen to. For me, the standout tracks are "Walking In Your Footsteps", "Mother" (Don't ask me why - I just think it is great that Andy Summers was able to get this mad song on the album - think Oedipus Complex), "King of Pain", "Wrapped Around Your Finger" and "Tea in the Sahara" - at least half the album is fab!
A great way to bow out on i must say...

Yes, not bad at all (though not in the Regatta class).

But how close does it come to the ACTUAL Farewell to Kings?

Now there's an album! (Rush - for the uninitiated)
