I've wanted to start a topic on The Police for a while, but as I was diggin' through the ol' All Together Now, I stumbled upon this!
The Police are my second favorite band, so I obviously have a high opinion of them. Sting was an amazing lyricist, he could write such meaningful songs and have all sorts of people love them. There's a quote of his I believe that said something like, "If people don't understand your music and still love it, you're a good writer." Once again, paraphrasing and I hope that was his quote. As a bassist, Sting is/was no disappointment either, his baselines are some of the best. Andy Summers is a great guitarist, his musical influences really made music put out by The Police so interesting. And Stewart Copland is a wonderful drummer, as shown in tracks like Next To You, which is pretty basic but starts their first album with a steady beat, and Don't Stand So Close To Me '86 which also has a great drum intro.
The thing about The Police is that they were a power trio, playing off each other, leaving open space for each others' instruments and having all the different parts come together perfectly.
If I have to choose a favorite album it'd be Every Breath You Take: The Singles, I don't know if it counts but its a collection of all their singles, some of their best work all in one place. Some really great music and lyrics.

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

Can buy Joe love!

I thought i only knew and liked about 5 or 6 of their songs but got a greatest hits compilation recently and knew and liked most of them, which was a surprise, so have ordered another expanded greatest hits to see what the others are like. Its the only album of theirs my local library has and its waiting to be picked up. Don't Stand So Close To Me is one of my favourite songs.
