Two of my favorite songs from The Police are on this album. Message in a Bottle and Walking on the Moon.
Like their first album this one is the essential sound of The Police. I find it interesting that their sound never really changed through all their albums. There is a core rhythm and style that doesn’t seem to change over the years. Its kind of impressive that they found their sound so early on. And it is quite distinctive.
But I do really just like the songs that got the radio time. The ones that most people over 30 know…the ones a lot of us grew up with. Otherwise the rest of the album is just fine.
