Omnibus Press's CD size 'complete guides' are very popular and this book is a belated but welcome addition to the series. Penned by Chris Welch, an ex Melody Maker journalist this compact book includes a brief history and examines each song on each album including Message in a Box, and Sting's solo releases. There are also plenty of photographs including several in colour. The narrative for each track is, understandably, coloured by the author's view and it's obvious that he doesn't rate Stewart and Andy's songwriting talents too highly, but this aside the book is inexpensive and generally very good (and it fits perfectly next to your Police and Sting CD's!) and is excellent value for money.
