'Walking In Your Footsteps' is more of the same minus the obvious sloganeering: man's atomic armoury, ready to duplicate the dinosaur's course. Nor did it matter that Sting had worked as a primary school teacher whilst noodling away in various jazz combos in his spare time or that drummer Stewart Copeland’s father had been a CIA operative involved in covert foreign policy operations. Once again, the grind of daily suburban existence, monotonous in its repetition as painful struggles are made to make ends meet whilst trying to make some sense of a life that seemingly has no other purpose than to reproduce whilst making others rich from your labours. I'd prefer "The Thief of Baghdad", but it wouldn't be pretentious enough.

So it's always a little surprising to actually listen to a the group and find a band which makes sophisticated and pleasurable music, music which spends most of its time transcending bassist/lead singer/main songwriter Sting's rather humdrum depressions.

Drummer Stewart Copeland composed the musical score for the film Rumble Fish which spawned the radio hit single “Don’t Box Me In”.

'Every Breath You Take' is a Number One that jolts a chart full of counterfeit sophistication with an injection of the real thing.

Basically, it sounds like a frog farting. I guess mine was concerned with extinction. It's a very happy feeling - it's like the height of your popularity, you know that you do is going to connect in a very big way with a large group of people, and while that period lasts - and it can't last for ever - everything you touch turns this way. Other topics would appear to be include prehistory ('Walking In Your Footsteps'), mother fixations (Summers' 'Mother'), the pursuit of knowledge ('Wrapped Around Your Finger') and the fine art of murder ('Murder By Numbers', only included on the cassette version). Factor in Sting’s simplistic view of Carl Jung’s concept of synchroncity – “A star fall, a phone call/ It joins all” and it becomes apparent that the broad brush strokes applied here are going to be a running theme.

The events described in Alanis Morissette's song "Ironic," like rain on your wedding day, are not examples of irony. Daddy's despair and futility over his life are boiling to the surface just as he's arriving home. Ansonsten: Musik machen (an der E-Gitarre und im Heimstudio), Musik hören und sammeln (auf CD, vorzugsweise), über Musik sinnieren und darüber schreiben... war da noch was? Psychologist Carl Jung created the term as a way to explain paranormal events. I can still recall the balmy summer of 1979 when, as a boy scout, building an improvised bivouac shelter made from branches and fern leaves with friends in a forest in Wales, a small transistor radio kept us company with the sounds of the season. The dinosaurs were wiped out by a bloody great asteroid smashing into the earth which doesn’t really compare to the human race hoisting itself by its own petard.". Die womöglich feinste Songsammlung ihrer Karriere – aber auch die letzte. Erst später, als ich erfahren habe, welche Arbeit der Mann in seine Musik steckte, bin ich zum Fan geworden. Auch Stewart Copeland gab fairerweise zu, beim ersten Hören gewusst zu haben, der Song sei „the Big One“. We all went back that night - we had a house in Long Island, all of us, with our families and we sat round, put the fire on, and we'd just had this huge triumph, and I turned to Andy and said 'It doesn't get any better than this we should really stop'. It Opens with the current single 'Every Breath You Take', a rather plodding tune with a basic theme of jealousy.

I think this may be a concept album. Ugh. But to have a creative outlet for feelings that would normally be ground up and internalised and reformed - you feel cauterised. Before this LP, his global pessimism was countered by a streak of pop romanticism. Sting hatte … 'Synchronicity' is all big, vibrant, complex sound performed with great clarity, even grace. Hach … das war wieder einmal schön zu lesen. The album of course was huge. Nicht schön…. Making of The Police Synchronicity – The other way of stopping. The familiar Jamaican rhythms are still prevalent and Stewart Copeland provides varying drum beats that could get cats dancing, but it's all to no avail. It didn’t matter to us that the trio had hitched its wagon to punk’s spiky aesthetic or that guitarist Andy Summers was actually older than some of our parents.

Read the choicest cuts from the Quietus archive: reviews, features and opinion, Walking On The Moon: The Story Of The Police - An Extract & Q&A, Neil Young & When Musicians Lose Their Moral Compass, Call The Police! There is something personal about 'Oh My God' and 'Every Breath You Take' that lonely chest-beating like 'Message In A Bottle' was never privy to. He smiles with a mouth that looks like it's about to bite the head off a baby doll. Mein Lieblingsalbum von Police ist immer noch Regatta de Blanc. That he sites this intriguing meditation in a sumptuous pop melody and sings it multi-tracked voices of chill purity is no more than a skilled writer/performer fulfilling his dues, but that he does it at all is remarkable.
'Walking In Your Footsteps' is more of the same minus the obvious sloganeering: man's atomic armoury, ready to duplicate the dinosaur's course. Nor did it matter that Sting had worked as a primary school teacher whilst noodling away in various jazz combos in his spare time or that drummer Stewart Copeland’s father had been a CIA operative involved in covert foreign policy operations.
