Editors’ Notes Sting describes recording this album as “where it all clicked” for The Police, and the chemistry between them is consistently beguiling—particularly on the two killer hits. “Message In a Bottle“ is full of exhilarating gear changes as Andy Summers’s guitar sparkles and charges around Sting and Stewart Copeland’s dubby groove, while “Walking On the Moon” funnels a relaxed skank into a moorish hook. Even on the scratchy, agitated “Deathwish”, they play with the inventive confidence of a band completely in sync.
