"For their fourth album, 1981's Ghost in the Machine, the Police had streamlined their sound to focus more on their pop side and less on their trademark reggae-rock. Their jazz influence had become more prominent, as evidenced by the appearance of saxophones on several tracks. The production has more of a contemporary '80s sound to it (courtesy of Hugh Padgham, who took over for Nigel Gray), and Sting proved once and for all to be a master of the pop songwriting format. The album spawned several hits, such as the energetic "Spirits in the Material World" (notice how the central rhythms are played by synthesizer instead of guitar to mask the reggae connection) and a tribute to those living amid the turmoil and violence in Northern Ireland circa the early '80s, "Invisible Sun." But the best and most renowned of the bunch is undoubtedly the blissful "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic," which topped the U.K. singles chart and nearly did the same in the U.S." - AMG.
This is a "Hot Stamper" with an exceptional Side One and a very good Side Two. Side One has some of the deepest Bass and most dynamic percussion that I've heard on versions of this LP -it is just "high-energy" in it's sound quality. Side Two is very good also but does not have quite the energy of Side One - it does have a more pronounced sense of soundstage depth, though. Either way, each side is spectacularly detailed and alive with plenty of ambience and lush highs and deep bass.
