I never had time when they were current to listen...what a mistake.
Steve Mcceney
Sting is good as a solo artist, but his songs tend to be very redunant.
Danielle Greenhouse
Great CD to own particularly if you're a casual fan or a completist.

The Police started out, strangely enough, as a punk band made up of older musicians with jazz and reggae sensibilities. When The Police managed to find the right balance, this odd fusion -- jazz complexity and a punk edge hidden under chirpy pop or reggae -- resulted in some of the most interesting hits of the late 1970s and early 1980s. The "Every Breath You Take" compilation draws songs from each of their albums and exhibits the wide variety of styles through which they could maneuver.

Problem is, that volatile mix produced musical and personal tensions that came to a boil after the "Synchronicity" album (which quickly went multi-platinum). The band members took a break to work on other musical projects, but relations did not improve and when they regrouped in the studio all they could manage was a drippy remake of the song "Don't Stand So Close to Me" that showed where the singer's new pretensions would be moving him.

This hits package was the vehicle for releasing that swan song, and everything about it (from the album name to the packaging to the song selection) shows that they were aiming for pop fans picked up by the last album. Their attempt succeeded; the compilation shot to Platinum and eventually achieved Multi-Platinum RIAA certification. A subsequent release under a new subtitle, "The Classics," added the original DSSCTM and a new mix of "Message in a Bottle," but there are so many copies of the older compilation floating a around that it still serves as an effective and cheap way to sample the band.

It is hard to believe that a band can become a Hall of Fame band with just five studio albums to their name, but The Police are such a band. This is an honor that The Police are most worthy of. The Police were sort of an off-shoot of the Punk Rock movement of the late 1970s. The band would eventually encompass other influences - namely Classic Rock, Reggae, Jazz, Dance, and even Folk. For the most part, it is fair to say there was a Punk Rock and Reggae influence on the band for their first two albums" - "Outlandos D'Amour" and "Regatta de Blanc". Both of these albums were terrific efforts - mostly because The Police used applied their unique style to a formula that worked. The Police would soon transform their sound to a more Classic Rock sound. With each successive album ("Zenyatta Mondatta", "Ghost in the Machine", and "Synchronicity"), The Police would continue to grow as a band and incorporate a variety of genres into their sound. Following "Synchronicity" tensions were high among Sting, Andy Summers, and Stewart Copeland and there were questions on whether The Police would continue. However in 1986, The Police would embark for a short reunion for the "Amnesty International" concerts (for what would be their last reunion for many years). As a way to promote that reunion, The Police would release their first greatest hits collection - entitled "Every Breath You Take - The Singles". This collection would focus on The Police's "hits" over their five albums. While it does provide a snapshot of The Police's music portfolio, it ultimately is a dated greatest hits collection.

"Every Breath You Take - The Singles" takes tracks from each of the band's five albums.

I know i've gone on record here on amazon and busted the Police's and Sting's balls sometimes. But let me set the record straight- i don't hate them. In fact i like them. I just think that they're a bit overrated in proportion with their actual musical legacy. This collection is a good "one-stop shop" for obtaining all the hits. My favorites are : Spirits In A Material World, Can't Stand Losing You, Every Breathe You Take. There were a few tunes left off that I would've included although there more album cuts than hits (ie Canary In A Coalmine, Synchronicity 1 &2)

I very much like the Police's music and the selection of songs on this album contains many great ones. The only problem is that this is the worst produced album I have ever heard. The songs sound like they're played through an AM radio with a 3-inch speaker. I have all of Sting's solo albums and the production is excellent. Not sure why this one is such a lemon.

The 1990 version of some of the best singles ever recorded by The Police. Every song on this CD is fantastic! It covers all the best and is great to listen to while driving by yourself in your car or dancing in the operating room where there are different people liking different kinds of music, yet this CD brings the generational gap closer than I've ever seen. Its got songs that everyone who has been alive for more than a minute, together. It's a great CD to add to your collecion and it's Timeless!!
