Police – Ghost In The Machine

Police - Ghost In The MachineWow. Now this is more like it. My all-time favorite Police album, Ghost in the Machine may be best remembered as the album from which “Spirits In The Material World” (which will always be, in my mind, the definitive statement of the Police sound) and “Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic” came, but also contains other personal favorites as “Too Much Information”, “Secret Journey” and “Hungry For You”, which is sung entirely in French until the last verse. I’m not sure what else I can say about this album aside 4 out of 4from noting that it’s the Police in their finest form, and it was really the last time their music visited the edge of being new wave. The cover design is also very cool, using simple LED-type symbols for the three band members.
