The Police Outlandos D' Amour on Limited Edition Japanese Import SHM-SACD
With their auspicious debut Outlandos D'Amour (Outlaws of Love), The Police brashly asserted themselves with a distinctive mix of rock, reggae and jazz-based vocals. Recorded in chunks over a six month period, Outlandos was released in November 1978 and featured at least three classic Police songs in the shape of "Roxanne," "Can't Stand Losing You" and "So Lonely" each of which were released as singles.
Whilst 1978 may have been the era of late punk The Police's debut was an album that was truly different from what was the then mainstream. There was nothing on the airwaves like "Roxanne." Sting recalled that, "It stuck out like a sore thumb on the radio when it came out because there was nothing else like it around."
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.
