Sting - The Dream Of The Blue Turtles

Our Shootout Winner from 2016

  (Item #: stingdream_2016) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This album has long been a favorite among audiophiles and it's pretty easy to see why. What Sting does here with jazz music is very similar to what Paul Simon later did with African music on Graceland. Sting surrounded himself with legitimate jazz musicians and together they've created an album that gives you the loose, relaxed feel of jazz mixed with Sting's distinct pop sensibility. There are elements of worldbeat, reggae and soul here as well, but the album never feels disjointed; Sting managed to pull it all together to create a sound that is somehow unique and familiar at the same time.

The Police - Ghost in the Machine

Nautilus Debunked

  (Item #: policghost_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: F

A Hall of Shame pressing and another Half Speed debunked.

And to think we used to actually like the sound of the Nautilus pressing! It suffers from all the same shortcomings other Nautilus and similar half-speeds suffer from: the kind of pretty but lifeless and oh-so-boring sound that we describe in listing after listing. (More bad Nautilus pressings are discussed below.)

The Police - Ghost in the Machine

Our Shootout Winner from 2009

  (Item #: policghost_2009) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock Hall of Fame.

Ghost In The Machine is a VERY tough album to get to sound right, but this pressing absolutely NAILED IT on side one. I’m talking about A+++, As Good As It Gets, Master Tape Quality Sound -- and you Police fanatics are going to flip when you hear it. We’ve been scooping up copies with various stampers that have shown promise in the past, but unfortunately most of them we played did nothing for us.

The Police - Outlandos d’Amour

Our Shootout Winner from 2007

  (Item #: policoutla_2007) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This Minty A&M LP has TWO AMAZING SIDES on QUIET VINYL! We listened to more than a dozen copies of this album -- imports, promos, and domestics -- and nothing came close to this copy!

Halfway through this shootout, our mood here had become somber. We were innundated with dull, overly compressed, harsh sounding copies of a record that's supposed to be upbeat and fun -- especially on Side Two. Muck!!

The Police - Reggatta de Blanc

Our Shootout Winner from 2014

  (Item #: policregga_2014) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This original A&M LP has PUNCHY LOW-END that really drives this rhythmically charged music! Sting’s pulsing bass lines and the massive assault of Stewart Copeland’s kick drum really come to life on this White Hot Stamper domestic pressing.

The Police - Synchronicity

Listening in Depth

  (Item #: policsynch_depth) 



Presenting another entry in our extensive Listening in Depth series with advice on what to listen for as you critically evaluate your copy of Synchronicity.

The choruses get LOUD and are so POWERFUL on the best copies they make a mockery of most of the pressings out there. This is a Big Speaker Record if ever there was one.

The Police - Synchronicity

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: policsynch_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock Hall of Fame and another in the long list of recordings that really comes alive when you Turn Up Your Volume.

WHITE HOT STAMPERS on side two! That gives you amazing sound for Every Breath You Take, King Of Pain, and Wrapped Around Your Finger! It’s been about a while since we last found Hot Stampers for this album, mostly because so many copies just plain suck. The sound on this one is meaty and punchy down low.

The Police - Zenyatta Mondatta

Our Shootout Winner from 2016

  (Item #: policzenya_2016) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

The first White Hot copy to hit the site in almost TEN YEARS! And it's a monster, with both sides earning our Top Grade of Triple Plus (A+++). The sound is dramatically bigger, present and livelier than the average pressing.
