Synchronicity: The Police

 

I’m starting off this monthly list with an absolute necessity when it comes to classic albums. In building a huge library of music over the years of listening, I’ve fallen in love with 80’s rock specifically. (But really, did anything bad ever come of that decade? Spoiler Alert: the answer is NO!)

This one specifically sticks out to me not only because I’m a Police fan, but because of how much the boundaries of rock were expanded with this album alone. The listening experience is top notch, and that’s an understatement. It’s packed with influences from music from other cultures, which gives each song its own unique flare. Really, this is one of the best introductions to the 80’s that I could think of.

Favorite track: King of Pain
