Every Breath You Take: The Classics

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Staff
Every Breath You Take: The Classics is an updated version of the 1986 collection Every Breath You Take: The Singles. The only differences in this collection are the addition of the "New Classic Rock Mix" of "Message in a Bottle," different artwork, and a slightly reworded title. Cosmetic changes aside, this remains a solid representation of a unique pop trio whose studio output was a too-short five albums.
