hehehe, thats funny...i love all albums but if i had to rank them that would be it,
i love regatta cause it has the wonderful grooves of their early stuff but slightly better album overall [not Be My Girl Sally] and Ghost because the music had developed by then and i overall i like it betetr than syncronicity and zenyatta.
zenyatta lyrics were a bit too silly at times, whereas Ghost had a more balanced blend of good lyrics and good music. Syncronicity i like but i guess i could go w/o miss grandeko, mother, tea in the sahara....king of pain, murder by numbers, and wrapped around your fingers are definitelt soem of my fave police songs overall.
Regardless, i can listen to all albums straigh through wihtout getting tired of them, I love the Police and if it weren't for them i would have never gotten into U2, they were my favorite band until i slowly but surely discovered U2 and went through their entire catalog which eventually pushed The police into second place.

My favorite album would be Reggatta De Blanc ...
since my two favorite songs from The Police are "Bring On The Night" and "Message In A Bottle" ...

Synchronicity would be a close second as that album has other favorite songs of mine too ...
"Every Breath You Take" ... "Synchronicity ll" ... "King Of Pain" ...
"Wrapped Around Your Finger" ... and "Murder By Numbers"

My ratings:

Outlandos <--- Love the rawness of this album
Regatta <--- Infectious
Ghost <--- has a lot of my fav songs, changed their sound a bit
Zenyatta <--- goofy lyrics
Synchronicity <--- some good songs, a little overrated IMO

Ooh, I loved the Police. I'll never forget spending the night on concrete so I could be first in line to get tickets on the Synchronicity tour. I thought Outlandos was underrated.

Any video with Sting from back then in it was great.

Was there music in those videos?
