All five of their albums are fantastic. About 50-60 percent of what they wrote could’ve been singles. There’s one or two duds an album, but when they’re firing on all cylinders, they’re the greatest pop band of their era.

True. My least liked is probably Ghost in the Machine, but even that one is fantastic. Invisible Sun…. Amazing.

There are no duds in any of their albums.


Be my girl sally

They aren’t the best and I am the all time police fan

I would say "Born in the 50s", an ode to Boomers that would make Steven Pinker blush, is one of their rare duds and on "Outlandos...", their best album

Funny... I like Mother quite a lot

Edit: just went and listened again. Yup, this is the song that got me into the band. The 7/4 signature, the absolutely brilliant guitar Solo.... Fuck yeah.

I don’t hate any of their songs. Some better than others but I don’t hate any

Duds? Mother comes to mind! I know what it’s meant to be but holy fuck it’s a tough listen.

EDIT: Hehe! Down voted by the purists who really do love their mums.

Even though technically they were a ska/pop band, the inner tension of the trio gave them a definite rock flare. We will never see another like them.
