Overview

The Very Best of Sting & the Police

Yes, you've seen this title before -- slapped on a 1997 compilation of the peroxided trio's best-known material -- but this latest collection of material from Sting and the Police arrives in new and improved form. In a nod to Sting's continued dominance as a solo artist, the disc has been reconfigured to emphasize his recent material -- most notably "Desert Rose" and "Brand New Day." The 18-song collection dips back in time to the Police's first worldwide smash, "Roxanne," and tracks the band's progress through reggae-tinged pop tunes like "Don't Stand So Close to Me" through more complex creations like "Russians" (which, despite its Cold War-era lyric, still resonates pretty strongly). In addition, the set has been retrofitted with a number of favorites left off the original issue, including "De Do Do Do De Da Da Da" and "So Lonely." Given that it was initially created to commemorate Sting's Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to the UK Music Industry, the disc is peppered with highlights from his solo career, including the contemplative "Fields of Gold" and "An Englishman in New York." Full of favorites, The Very Best of Sting & the Police makes an excellent springboard into Sting and company's lasting body of work.

This album was awesome! I loved all the songs that were on it. I was growing up when The Police came out with their first song and was still young when the band was no longer. This album brought back alot of memories for me. This album is a must have...that is if you know what good music is.
