How do I rate Synchronicity? I'd have to put it in perspective with the other 1,999 cds I've collected over the years. I have all 5 Police cds as combined on their Message in a Box set. I have all 6 Sting solo cds. It's Synchronicity that I keep coming back to. It's 17 years old now and I was just 10 1/2 when it came out. At the time I hated "Every Breath You Take" and "King of Pain", but what does a ten year old know! As I matured, I began to understand what Sting was saying. This is one of those rare albums where music and lyric combine and compliment each other. Psychologically this album never becomes dated or out of touch. It's as tough a disc as Peter Gabriel's 1992 cd "Us" or Jane Siberry's 1993 cd "When I Was a Boy." All 11 tracks on Synchronicity deal with the theme of love and relationships. The metaphorical take on nuclear war in "Walking in Your Footsteps", the mother-son emotional damage playing itself out in future relationships in "Mother", the stress of working and having a family leading to emtional turmoil on "Synchronicity II", the obsessiveness of stalking a loved one on "Every Breath You Take", the isolation and pain of being in a relationship on "King of Pain" and the psychological/emotional damage of the games we play in relationships on "Wrapped Around Your Finger." Few popular albums have ever achieved such depth in lyric and richness in sound as the Police did on Synchronicity. It's digitally remastered too to bring forth all the best elements of this disc. To be fair, all Police albums are at least good. Synchronicity avoids the repetitiveness of their first 3 discs and takes a step further than Ghost in the Machine.Read more ›

Bias - Synchronicity was the first rock album I ever received (alongside of VH 1984) and it blew me away then, as it still does now.
The biggest thing that hit me - after purchasing the CD years after I lost the tape - is how well the production fits the music. Everything is so lush, its like stepping into infinite sonic space while bumping into pieces of sound floating all around you. The depth of this album is amazing. It, like Peter Gabriel's _Security_, was made for CD.
The songs - To me the only throwaway is "Murder by Numbers" - the definitive version of that song was done by Zappa on the "Broadway the Hard Way" (with Sting at the helm, of course). I think Summers is too clean and sloppy for this song to work. I love the arpeggiated riffing by Summers on "Miss Gradenko", and I must be the one person that loves the swirling, arabesque "Mother" - primarily because when you break down the music, its turns out to be a very cleverly disguised 12-bar blues riff! Such is the majesty of this album.
The best songs for your hi-fi have to be "Walking in Your Footsteps" and "Synchronicity II". The former sparkles and tantalizes with strange percussive synth noises (why does everything on this album sound so different from every synth-pop band of the same time frame? Its still modern after almost 15 years). The latter, a grungy, daring escape into pure musical darkness, is the best performance of the Police's - and especially Andy Summers' - careers. The feedback "guitar solo" and the ripping 16-th note solo that fades in at the end of this track are utterly gripping.
The best part about this album though, if you are a gloomy gus like me, is the lyrical work by Sting.

Thirty years later, Synchronicity still holds up as a high-water mark in the world of pop-rock. Though not my fave Police album (that honor would go to Zenyatta Mondatta), I have many fond memories of June of '83...I had just finished 6th grade, summer vacation was beginning, and Synchronicity would not leave my turntable.
We all know the hits..."Every Breath You Take", "King of Pain", "Wrapped Around Your Finger" and "Synchronicity II"...and also the great album tracks like "O My God" and "Tea in the Sahara". But I see a lot of people on this site talking smack about "Mother". Sure, it's, um..."not conventional." Yeah, it's in an "odd time signature." No, Andy Summers doesn't exactly have a "golden throat." But for me, the song works. In fact, it ought to work for anyone whose mom has ever driven him/her nutso. We are made to feel the effects of Andy's smothering mother through the over-the-top performance. Besides, my mom HATED the song, so that was understandably good enough for me.
My one gripe about this new CD reissue (and ones that have come before) is that it keeps "Murder By Numbers" as the final track. Those of us old enough to know what a turntable is remember that "Murder" was NOT a part of the original LP. By tacking it onto the end of the CD, the desolate, reflective mood created by "Tea in the Sahara" is ruined. "Murder by Numbers", originally the B-side of "Every Breath You Take" and a great track in its own right, clearly does not fit the mood of Synchronicity.
Otherwise, this new 2003 reissue is great, with big, punchy sound. A vast improvement over disc 4 of Message in a Box.
