About The Event
Synchronicity was the final studio album from the Police, released in June 1983. It was the most successful album from The Police and includes the hit singles "Every Breath You Take", "King of Pain", "Wrapped Around Your Finger", and "Synchronicity II". At the time of its release and following its tour The Police were hailed as the "Biggest Band in the World".
The album was nominated for a total of five Grammy awards including Album of the Year and won three. In 2009, Synchronicity was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.
Synchronicity reached number one on both the Billboard 200 and the UK Albums Chart, selling over 8 million copies. The album was praised by critics for its cohesive merging of disparate musical genres and sonic experimentation.
Rolling Stone described "each cut on Synchronicity [as] not simply a song but a miniature, discrete soundtrack" and in 1983 it was voted album of the year in their Readers Poll. It is number 17 on their "100 Best Albums of the Eighties" list and number 455 on the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time".
