Yep, it's a keeper. I have that on vinyl.
Andy Summers is my favorite guitarist I never learned any licks from.
Great trades/transactions with checo, kjrocks (2x), ginoames (2x), guitarkid (2x), Ed Hunter, primo (2x), apar111, blueman335, King IzzO))), ArtieToo, lemonman, saladin, SAVAGE DISTORTION, and DonP. Excellent forum bros!
I don't like the Police, and I never have. Gimmicky tunes more about sell-out pop than true artistic integrity.
Not only that, but the heavy use of the sickeningly sweet chorus wore itself thin well before the second album even emerged.
At that time the massive media machine was more responsible for their viral popularity than any pure talent they possesed( that and the lack of any true artitistic pop artistry per-se in the 70's to provide anything else worth listening to).

I'm Rich, I'm Beuatiful! <p>
...okay, I'm not rich.
I cannot enjoy their music because it is the soundtrack to "chore day" from my childhood. My mom would blast the Police until the whole house was spotless. Like Nazi internment camps did with Cher.
I have always liked The Police... Now I have King of Pain ringing in my head.

In his career span, Sting has written songs ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous. (I shall leave you to decide which ones are which.) He has been fortunate to have had some excellent musicians with which to record and perform his material.
EDIT - Sting must be pretty good at fisticuffs too! He survived The Police.

And while we're at it, let's bash Megadeth for continuing to play the same genre they co-created after all these years. Or Stevie Wonder for being so damn stereotypical.
