Alright…You Picked It! And here it is. The one you picked was The Police – ‘Synchronicity’. The votes were as follows:
- The Police – ‘Synchronicity’ – 11 votes
- Patti Smith – ‘Horses’ – 7 votes
- The Struts – ‘Strange Days’ – 3 votes
- Lauryn Hill – ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’ – 1 vote
- Prince – ‘Purple Rain’ – 0 votes (this surprised me)
And thanks to being on The LeBrain Train live stream a couple weeks back, we had 2 write-in votes for Tommy Lee’s ‘Andro’ based on my absolute disdain for this new album. The write-in votes are a first for this series and if there was enough votes, it technically could’ve won!!
Thanks to all for participating. The November choices will be up on Saturday!
THE POLICE – ‘SYNCHRONICITY’:
It turns out, I wrote about this album some 3-4 years ago. I think I need to keep better notes. But, you guys voted for it anyway and therefore I will update my review where my thoughts might have changed or where I have better information.
My first album for The Police was ironically their last. MTV had played their previous songs quite often and I loved “Don’t Stand So Close To Me” and “Every Little Thing She Does is Magic”, but it wasn’t until “Synchronicity II” that I finally decided to actually buy one of their records.
I picked up the cassette for ‘Synchronicity’ back in 1983 and later I did pick up their entire collection on CD by buying their box set which had all their albums. I have since sold all the previous copies and when I was out vinyl shopping several years back, I found ‘Synchronicity’ and snatched it up. It cost $8 which was about the same price I probably paid for the cassette back in the ’80’s.Continue reading “You Picked It! – The Police – ‘Synchronicity’ (1983) – Album Review”
