To play DTS CDs you need to have equipment that supports DTS and a surround sound system that is capable of decoding the DTS signal. Don't play this on equipment that isn't compatible because you'll only hear static!
The first thing to note about the DTS version of Every Breath You Take - The Classics is that it's not an entirely faithful port of the original 1995 A&M CD release. Two tracks have been omitted entirely from the DTS release - Don't Stand So Close to Me '86 and the new "classic rock mix" of Message in a Bottle (tracks 13 & 14 respectively on the original CD). But there's one other important difference that may come as a surprise to fans. During The Police's aborted 1986 attempt to reform for a sixth studio album, the original plan was to record entirely new material. But, egos and tensions within the band being what they were, Sting was less than enthusiastic about the project and had written no new songs. What's more, Stewart Copeland arrived at the recording studio with a broken collar bone, the result of a polo accident. So the idea of a new album was abandoned and a decision was made to simply revisit a pair of tracks for a greatest hits release. The resulting tracks were disastrous by any measure (despite being a fascinating record of the final self-destruction of the band). The first of these (featuring Copeland on electronic drum machine) was the aforementioned Don't Stand So Close to Me '86. But the other track, which ultimately went unreleased, was De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da '86. Unreleased until now that is, because that's the version of the song that you'll find on this DTS release.----review by
