  4. jokerjerez says:

    the Police sounded fucking real.

    I love Andy… but he cant sing at all the chorus on this song

    Check all of your Old grey history…this was a 3 piece band…only the Jam come close…this was a new sound created by old combinations. We wait for the next Police, The Cure….The Jam.

    si, el bataco era una bestia para darle a los parches, pese a que sting era el compositor de casi todo el material y todo eso, el sonido de police no sería único sin la genialidad del batero

    When the Police were real….

    @tomsega Lol…. I cant help agreeing….sort of raw sound I guess…. but yes, in comparison with ealier stuff by Focus, Captain Beefheart etc does sound a bit rough…

    Have to say, if you listen to the other groups that come up when you search for The Old Grey Whistle Test, The Police sound like a small pub band.

    @raelraven2 Sting has just as much right as they do even though he’s not completely punk. The only reason he’s wearing those glasses is because he burned his eyes with hairspray.

    They have some great hits but I never liked that reggae vibe from the music. But, overall I have to give it a thumbs up.

  13. Snotra says:

    Good studio band, but otherwise….whateva!

  14. themadgooner says:

    Thank you, for keeping it.

  15. raelraven2 says:

    This is a great song, but Sting posing as a punk rocker is a joke.

    @erikinhawaii.Oh I do agree with you on that comment. S Copeland is a drumming master and king. Good call.

    I am the face.

    i was just a year and a few months old at this time. I really wish i was born earlier. The Police were such a great band (I later bought “synchronicity” in the late 80′s)

    @3MC4 hey I wake up in the morning and put my pants on just like everyone else; one leg at a time. But what I do need is more cowbell…

  23. 3MC4 says:

    @zacandtaylorrule Why ´haha´? They ARE nice B)

  24. 3MC4 says:

    @erikinhawaii you solved it :D
