I knew more of these songs than I was expecting which is always a nice bonus, and it was really interesting to hear The Police trying to figure out their sound. It did raise questions in my head when the tracks dipped into reggae - is there an element of cultural appropriation here or should people be allowed to experiment with inspiration wherever it comes from? I wasn’t expecting a wider philosophical discussion to come out of listening to this album but it did! Good songs, though, that stand the test of time.
