What an awesome band. What awesome pop classics. All your favorites are in this CD, and it's great for those of you who just love good pop, but don't want to go out to buy a whole load of music. There are other CD's that cover a good selection for The Police, and I would not say that this is perfect, but there are a few good things about getting this one. All the music is specifically songs made by The Police, and not Sting's solo stuff. Not saying that his solo work is bad, but we're talking about The Police's classics, right? If you like classic rock, you probably have this CD, and if you're a big time fan of The Police, you have these songs across all the other CDs. It's your standard greatest hits CD type of thing.
