Originally released in October 1981, the fourth studio album by The Police was no. 1 in the UK album chart and a multi-platinum best seller. It features three hit singles Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic, Invisible Sun and Spirits in the Material World. Their jazz influences became more pronounced, but the album had a very strong, sophisticated pop appeal, in the song-writing talents of Sting. Highlights also include the vicious jazz-rocker Demolition Man (later covered by Grace Jones) the frantic Rehumanize Yourself, and a pair of album-closing ballads Secret Journey and Darkness. Released on black heavyweight vinyl with original LP packaging.
The fifth and final studio album by the Police, Synchronicity was released in June 1983, and was the band's most successful release. Despite its pop-oriented and experimental than either Ghost in the Machine or Zenyatta Mondatta, Synchronicity made the Police global superstars, generating no less than five classic hit singles. Every Breath You Take (featuring a seductive, rolling beat masking its malice) King of Pain, Wrapped Around Your Finger, and Synchronicity II. The album's title and much of the material for the songs were inspired by Arthur Koestler's The Roots of Coincidence. At the 1984 Grammy Awards the album was nominated for a total of five awards including Album of the Year. Released on black heavyweight vinyl with original LP packaging.
