This compilation was the first to blend hits from The Police with more salient solo recordings from frontman Sting. Of course it was more than a coincidence that 1997's The Very Best of Sting & The Police arrived hot on the heels of Puff Daddy embedding The Police's "Every Breath You Take" into his chart-busting smash "I'll Be Missing You." The compilation makes no pretense of this, bookending the chronologically sequenced mix with a Puff Daddy reworking of "Roxanne." (Both original versions are featured here.) "Message in a Bottle" opens, serving as a solid reminder that The Police were one of the first pop bands to fuse reggae with new wave, albeit with a unique style punctuated by Stewart Copeland's progressive rhythms. With references to Vladimir Nabokov's 1955 novel Lolita, "Don't Stand So Close to Me" is a great example of how Sting worked scholarly lyrics into his musings; this initially helped the band gain a huge collegiate fanbase. From Sting's solo career, the gloomy "Russians" is a Cold War time capsule.
