Blondie produced one entirely satisfactory album and a couple of reasonable slightly less than satisfactory albums, the Police never produced an entirely satisfactory album. All that Copeland and Summers' tosh spoiled every album - Sting should have kept a firmer grip on the reins, nevertheless, they were more consistent.

Who do like best? If I only had the choice of the five Police albums against the best of five Blondie albums I think it would have to be The Police, close though.

Both released many excellent singles, but albums were a mix of good or indifferent material. Both bands still sound good on the radio but rarely go near my turntable

I'd rather have it off with '78 Deborah than '78 Sting though

Blondie - higher highs but only first and third albums have ever warranted my money
Police - more good stuff for longer - I own their entire back catalogue.

U2 are above both
So are the Bunnymen
Complete Ramones Mp3 set on its way

I love a lot of Blondie, up to and including ETTB. After that, forget it. I like the first couple of Police albums.
I like the first three U2 albums.

Some good stuff there.

Saw Blondie in the 70's several times she was a Queen and the band rocks.
I like the Police (aka band Mike Howlett first put together) and would most likely pick them over Blondie but it's close.

U2 I don't consider part of that area but I guess they are. u2 is better than both of them with multiple albums better then those bands. U2 will laugh all the way to the bank for you haters.
