The Police: Certifiable

The Police
Universal Records [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
In the day of reunions I believe that the Police getting back together for a tour was one of the highlights in this trend. Certifiable is a full two CD and two DVD set capturing this giant tour and the show in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It comes with all the standard hits and sounds great so even the most casual fan can appreciate the chemistry that never lost one step over the bands hiatus period. The DVDs of course make this package solid for everyone that could not attend a show plus the second DVD contains the 50-minute bonus feature, "Better Than Therapy, " directed by Jordan Copeland detailing The Police's historic reunion with exclusive behind-the-scenes interviews from the band and road crew. Basically it is Certifiable that if you like the Police you will like this release!

Key Track: "Wrapped Around Your Finger"

Band With Similar Fire: U2
