The Police Albums Ranked

I posted a Sting review today, so here's a list to accompany it. Because The Police called it quits at the top of their game, all of their albums are really good -- my lowest rated album is still a 3.
5The Police
Ghost in the Machine

Last only last because the competition is so stiff. But some great songs here, including "Spirits in the Material World", "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic" (how many songs did Sting repeat that line about the umbrella in after this one?) and "Secret Journey".
4The Police
Outlandos d'Amour

Their first album, and some pretty great songs here. Yes, "Roxanne" has been played to death, but I don't hold that against it. And other tracks like "Can't Stand Losing You" and "So Lonely" make this a pretty strong debut.
3The Police
Reggatta de Blanc

They showed some growth here from the first album -- this one is more cohesive. Plus songs like "Walking on the Moon", "Message in a Bottle", "Bring on the Night" and "The Bed's Too Big Without You" make it a winner.
2The Police
Zenyatta Mondatta

For years, this was my favorite Police album, until Synchronicity finally overwhelmed it. Highlights here include "Don't Stand So Close to Me", "De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da" and "Driven to Tears".
1The Police

Seldom has a band broken up while at quite this high a level. This is a ridiculously good album. Includes great songs like "King of Pain", "Wrapped Around Your Finger" and "Synchronicity II", plus minor gems like "Murder By Numbers" and "Tea in the Sahara". And I guess "Every Breath You Take" is OK too.
