Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Songs of All Time - "Roxanne" - Rated 398/500!
Limited Edition Audiophile 180 Gram LP Pressing!
Why buy Outlandos D'Amour? One word...Roxanne! What might possibly be the most recognizable Police song ever is featured on this outstanding 180g pressing.
Outlandos D'Amour presents an earlier, more aggresive Police. Sure to please Police fans and anyone who enjoys high-energy pop, Outlandos finds Sting in fine form on vocal and bass duties, being very well supported by the Afro-Cuban/Rock drumming of Stewart Copeland and the Jazzy guitar work of Andy Summers.
Truely a slice of the eighties, Outlandos D'Amour and The Police never sounded better. "They would get bigger, but they never sounded fresher. The Police were punks who could play their instruments, absorbing reggae into the spare, bouncy sound of their debut album. "Roxanne," "Next to You" and "So Lonely" proved that Sting was already a top-notch pop songwriter." - www.rollingstone.com
"'That song has been the turnaround for us,' Stewart Copeland told Rolling Stone. Sting came up with the idea for the song while wandering around the red-light district of Paris after a canceled show, wondering what it would be like to be in love with a prostitute. The title came from a poster for the play Cyrano de Bergerac featuring a heroine named Roxanne in the band's hotel lobby in Paris." - Rolling Stone
