Background: Released in 1983, Synchronicity was the fifth and final studio album by the Police.

The album reached #1 on the charts in the UK and in the U.S., where it has sold more than 8 million copies.

The album was released with thirty six different covers, and original U.S. issues were pressed on high-quality “audiophile” vinyl, which provided better sound quality than most other mass-produced albums of the early 1980s.

Allmusic.com gave Synchronicity a 4 1/2 star review:

Simultaneously more pop-oriented and experimental than either Ghost in the Machine or Zenyatta Mondatta, Synchronicity made the Police superstars, generating no less than five hit singles. …”Every Breath You Take” has a seductive, rolling beat masking its maliciousness, “King of Pain” and “Wrapped Around Your Finger” are devilishly infectious new wave singles, and “Tea in the Sahara” is hypnotic in its measured, melancholy choruses. …While the hits are among Sting’s best, they also illustrate that he was ready to leave the Police behind for a solo career, which is exactly what he did.
