Reggatta de Blanc is the second studio album by English rock band The Police, released on the second of October, 1979. It features the band's first two UK No. 1 hits: "Message in a Bottle" and "Walking on the Moon". It was their first album to reach No. 1 on the UK Album Charts.

'Reggatta de Blanc' was actually a stage jam from the middle of 'Can't Stand Losing You' that eventually solidified into a new piece. Stewart Copeland: Revolver, 4/00. Stewart Copeland: Trouser Press, 12/79. Reggatta de Blanc took us three weeks to record. We just went into the studio and said 'right, who's got the first song!' We hadn't even rehearsed them before we went i.

The title track on 1979’s Reggatta de Blanc, elements of jazz improvisation and scat singing, reggae rhythm and bass, and punk attitude are infused into a three minute rocker. Though never released as a single, the song earned The Police their first Grammy award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance in 1980

Reggatta De Blanc’ marked the moment where The Police synthesised their influences into something unique, becoming one of the biggest bands on the planet. Published on. November 23, 2018. However, it was their transcendent second album, Reggatta De Blanc, that turned them into one of the post-punk era’s defining bands. Originally released on 2 October 1979, Reggatta De Blanc again sported a mysterious, pseudo-French title, which loosely translated as white reggae : a label journalists attempted to pin on The Police after their initial hits ‘Roxanne’ and ‘Can’t Stand Losing You’ skilfully melded the stridency of punk and the joyful bounce of reggae. Listen to Reggatta De Blanc right now.

Reggatta de Blanc is the second album by The Police, released in 1979. Message in a Bottle", a Sting-penned song about alienation, opens the album. It is followed by the mostly instrumental "Reggatta de Blanc", (the title being a pseudo-French translation referring to the album's style of "white reggae") one of the few songs written by all members of the Police.

Part 2: Reggatta De Blanc - The step back. One of the more dreaded quandaries in music is the all too common, almost stereotypical sophomore slump. Many theories abound regarding its alienating presence, but regardless if it stems from growing pains, a lack of fresh ideas, or fatigue, legions of bands throughout rock history have been saddled with the overwhelming pressure of crafting a solid successor to a landmark debut album. The logical question after a near watershed debut is would the follow up album live up to expectations, or would The Police fall into the same knarled Sophomore trap like so many of their brethren. In studying The Police from a career standpoint, it is clear that Sting, guitarist Andy Summers, and drummer Stewart Copeland were advanced musicians for the genre of music they resided in.

Reggatta De Blanc is one of The Police`s finest albums that combined cutting edge punk with reggae music, wonderfully, in the way they did on its predessor debut Outlandos D`Amour. Message In A Bottle, Bring On The Night, Walking On The Moon and The Bed`s Too Big Without You are huge winners. But, we cannot miss out tracks like the semi-instrumental Reggatta De Blanc, It`s Alright For You, Deathwish, On Any Other Day (entirely written and sung by Stewart Copeland). Indeed, it is the only Police song where you can hear Stewart singing), Contact, Does Everyone Stare and No Time This Time. Every single track make this album worth listening.Track-by-Track:1. Message In A Bottle: 5/52. Reggatta De Blanc: 5/53. It`s Alright For You: 5/54. Bring On The Night: 5/55. Deathwish: 5/56. Waliking On The Moon: 5/57. On Any Other Day: 4/58.

No Time This Time: 5/5Average rating: 4.86 starsKey tracks: Message In A Bottle, Reggatta de Blanc, Bring On The Night, Walking On The Moon, The Bed`s Too Big Without You.BOTTOM LINE: Reggatta De Blanc is an almost perfect piece of work that many Police fans love and that music critics and "experts" tend to underrate.
Perhaps the most underrated record in The Police catalogue, Regatta de Blanc is a great rock record and possibly a better offering than the band's debut album. "Roxanne" is an all-time classic and other songs on Outlandos are great songs. The difference here is in the depth of quality songs presented. The writing and musicianship is better and more focused. The production is superior. Outlandos sounds like a new band learning to record. One album later, and Regatta sounds like a band that has honed its craft, and the sound quality is much better. A great album that more people should hear.
Great album , three fantastic musicians . Highlights : Message in a bottle, walking in the moon, reggatta de blanc, bring on the night...
At the time of writing, the crowd of 1753 uses had given this 4.5 stars. The tribe has spoken: 3 stars does not do this great album justice.
Possibly more impressive than their debut in some areas, Reggatta de Blanc is more polished than their first record. By sanding off the rough areas in favor of a more clean sound, a lot of the rawness that was found on Outlandos d'Amour isn't found here. Nonetheless, the crisp sound doesn't hurt the creative process, and this album is well-written. Not as energetic and immediate as the first record, but definitely noteworthy because of its diversity and strong performances. Key tracks are Message In A Bottle, Walking On The Moon, The Bed's Too Big Without You, and Does Everyone Stare

This album is a lyrical, melodic, recording, rhythmic, harmonic, production masterpiece.
Nothing personal
In my opinion, the finest Police album. The only one, after all these years, I go to when I want to hear them. This really wasn't Sting and Company. It was all company; obviously a collaborative effort more so than the later albums.
White Reggae is the English name of this second record from The Police. About half of the record is more of the same, punky reggae that is very poppy, but where this album differs is its dark mood. Songs like the emotional "Bed is Too Big Without You", flawless pop single "Message in a Bottle", fluttering reggae tune "Bring On the Night" and the demented "Contact" are true evolution for the band, and they are all great additions to the band’s catalogue. An evolution from the debut is that the album is more confident and consistent in its style and beyond the single ready songs, the album endures. "Walking On the Moon" was somewhat of a grower for me, as I was unfamiliar with this hit when I first head the record, but I love it’s relaxed slow jam vibe. "It's Alright for You" shows off Copeland's drumming like nothing else, and proves him as a devastating force as a percussionist. Likewise, "Contact" written by Copeland, shows off Sting's incredible bass playing, and you can tell bands like Primus took some notes on from track. Consistency wise, there are two songs that don't work: "Does Everyone Stare" and "Deathwish". One hardly notices the flaws on here though, with great album tracks like the comical "On Any Other Day" and supersonic closer "No Time this Time" to boost the speed back up to normal. Reggata de Blanc is another stellar record from an evolving band, but it should be noted that with the exception of "Message in a Bottle", the album is all about Stewart Copeland as his drumming is one of the best ever heard on any rock n roll album.
Not a weak track here. The Stewart Copeland tracks are stellar and showed what the Police could do as a team before the egomaniac took over and made it more about him.
While Outlandos D'Amour was an excellent outing, it's Reggatta De Blanc that first depicts the group at their creative peak, with a unique, unmistakable sound and absolutely no filler. Their identity is fully established on this album, though, as was the case with REM's Murmur, the band, after discovering the perfect sound, would intentionally never quite employ that style again, resulting in a truly one of a kind effort from one of the greatest bands of the silver age of rock and roll.
