Copland is on his A-game as far as playing goes, the drums are bouncy and energetic as he tends to be at his best. I'm not familiar with Mark King, and Vittorio Cosma on bass and keys but they play well. Belew isn't in full show-off crazy mode, but he's still a killer player and gets off some good solos and stuff.
But there's a problem...
Stuart Copland is the LEAD SINGER ON THE WHOLE ALBUM. and this INSTANTLY turns the album from something with great potential into a near-complete waste of time. I actually like the songs he sang with the Police, but this is TOO MUCH. He's not even genuinely singing all that much, it's more sort of sing-talking. The best songs are the ones with actual hooks and the hooks are mostly delivered by one of the other members (Mark King usually I think) so it ends up being an album where it's better the less the main singer is singing which isn't often. The album would be more enjoyable if it was all instrumental, but the instruments are all playing in a way that makes it obvious that there are supposed to be vocals there, so they wouldn't really be that interesting as instrumental songs.
Regardless of how collaborative these songs actually are the fact that this isn't billed as a Stuart Copland solo album makes it feel misleading as fu*ck. The album isn't like outright bad or anything, but it feels like such a waste of time and potential anyway.
