The album reached No. 1 in the UK Albums Chart and No. 2 in the .
Although many Police fans consider 1983's 'Synchronicity' album to be the band's finest album, a significant number of others believe that it was 1981's 'Ghost In The Machine' that is the more satisfying. After three albums recorded in either the egg-box covered walls of Surrey Sound Studios or amidst the persistent rain of Holland, the band transported themselves to the idyllic surroundings of the Caribbean, and to Air Studios on the island of Montserrat

For their fourth album, 1981's Ghost in the Machine, the Police had streamlined their sound to focus more on their pop side and less on their trademark reggae-rock. Their jazz influence had become more prominent, as evidenced by the appearance of saxophones on several tracks. The production has more of a contemporary '80s sound to it (courtesy of Hugh Padgham, who took over for Nigel Gray), and Sting proved once and for all to be a master of the pop songwriting format.
Like every Police album, Ghost in the Machine contains a timeless anthem, and the gorgeous verses combined with the Let’s go to Jamaica right now and party chorus mood of Every Little Thing She Does is Magic ensure the dynamics of this streak will continue. While the overall musicianship of the record may not match the virtuosity of past glories, the final verdict on Ghost in the Machine finds the Police continuing to evolve as songwriters.

Renews automatically. Sample this album Artist (Sample). 1. 30. Spirits In The Material World (Remastered 2003). This album saw The Police move in a distinctly different direction from their earlier stuff. The reggae influence was pretty much gone here and the overall sound is slicker in general. Many fans sight this as the band's weakest effort and at the least it is definitely a transitional album. It is one of the bands most somber efforts with politics taking the lead over relationships in the lyrics. Keyboards are also introduced on this album to varying degrees of success.
