Released:
Label: A&M
While the Police were already huge in Britain, it took this 1980 release to finally break them in America. Songs like "Don't Stand So Close to Me" and "Shadows in the Rain" brought a new sense of lurking dread to their lean reggae/new wave sound, while "Driven to Tears" previews the more mature work that was to just around the corner. "When the World is Running Down..." may be the single best song on this classic album.
