Police - Ghost In The Machine RIAA Certified Multi-Platinum! Click here to see this CD at!

By Albert Massa

Dark, somber, and thematically unified as no previous album by the Police, Ghost in the Machine deals almost exclusively with the negative effects of modern political and technological culture. The only departure from this focus is "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic," a perfect pop song and radio hit. Elsewhere, the album treats such issues as the hope underlying resistance to oppression, the dismissal of most of the nonindustrialized world, the daily bombardment of words and images that overload the senses, and the frequent recourse to violence for personal or political expression. The songs are presented in what are, for the Police, unusually dense, layered arrangements. Andy Summers's guitar lines are even more ethereal than usual, with Sting's bass parts bobbing in a mix seasoned with keyboards and sax and propelled by Stewart Copeland's unmistakable, idiosyncratic drumming. While Synchronicity gave the Police their greatest success with hits and videos, Ghost in the Machine is the band's best recording.

"RIGHT ON!! I agree WHOLLY! GITM is THE best album they ever had. However, I believe the single, Synchronicity II is one of the best ever! On this album, "Every Little Thing...", "Spirits in the Material World", and "Invisible Sun" are the best singles."


"Absolutely the best Police album. Stewart Copeland's completely unique drum playing and Sting's bass chords, are why I call this my personal favorite."


"Agreed. Ghost in the Machine is one album taken in its entirety rather than by individual songs. Haunting melodies, they remain in your musical memories."
