This Single-Layer SHM-SACD can only be played on a Super Audio CD Player!

1979 Classic Album Contains "Message In A Bottle" and "Walking On the Moon"!
Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 372/500!


SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency, players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high resolution format such as SACD.

Though this record only unleashed one of The Police's hits ("Message In A Bottle"), it is full of creative and fast-paced music. In fact, this record almost passes by in a blur as the band jumps from rock to reggae and even shows traces of punk and ska. In a way, this is the band's forgotten record, simply because of its lack of radio songs. Nevertheless, the music on Regatta De Blanc is amazingly complex, yet memorable and to the point, making for an immediately impressive no-nonsense record.

"By 1979's Reggatta de Blanc (translation: White Reggae), nonstop touring had sharpened the Police's original blend of reggae-rock to perfection, resulting in breakthrough success. Containing a pair of massive hit singles -- the inspirational anthem "Message in a Bottle" and the spacious "Walking on the Moon" -- the album also signaled a change in the band's sound. Whereas their debut got its point across with raw, energetic performances, Reggatta de Blanc was much more polished production-wise and fully developed from a songwriting standpoint. While vigorous rockers did crop up from time to time ("It's Alright for You," "Deathwish," "No Time This Time," and the Grammy-winning instrumental title track), the material was overall much more sedate than the debut -- "Bring on the Night," "The Bed's Too Big Without You," and "Does Everyone Stare." Also included was one of Stewart Copeland's two lead vocal appearances on a Police album, the witty "On Any Other Day," as well as one of the band's most eerie tracks, "Contact." With Reggatta de Blanc, many picked Sting and company to be the superstar band of the '80s, and the Police would prove them correct on the band's next release." - allmusic.com
