Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 323/500!

Ghost in the Machine, released in October 1981, is the fourth studio album by The Police and the first to feature a title in English, which was of course provided by Arthur Koestler's The Ghost in the Machine, the book that inspired much of the material. The songs were recorded between January and September in 1981, in sessions that took place at Air Studios, in Montserrat, and Le Studio, in Quebec, and were co-produced by Hugh Padgham.

The album reached number one in the UK Albums Chart and number two in the US Billboard 200, spawning three successful singles: Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic, Invisible Sun, and Spirits in the Material World. In the US, however, the song Secret Journey was released as an alternative single to Invisible Sun.

As the band was unable to agree on a picture for the sleeve, cover art for Ghost in the Machine features three red pictographs, digital likenesses of the band members in the style of segmented LED displays, each with a distinctive hair style (from left to right, Andy Summers, Sting with spiky hair, and Stewart Copeland with a fringe).

Number one in six countries and top 6 in five others, sonically (in hindsight) it formed a bridge between their more direct early work and their more ambitious latter direction. In 2000 Q magazine placed Ghost in the Machine at No. 76 in its list of the 100 Greatest British Albums Ever. More recently Pitchfork Media ranked it No. 86 in their list of the 100 Greatest Albums of the 1980s. The album's cover was ranked at number 45 on VH1's 50 Greatest Album Covers.

This record was cut using a special technique known as half-speed mastering. This artisan process results in cuts that have superior high frequency response (treble) and very solid and stable stereo images. In short, a very high quality master that helps to create a very high quality record.
