Police to Make a New Album?

So, the big buzz of the music world today is Andy Sumner's dropping hints that (perhaps, maybe, if you read between the lines and actually believe they can stay together) the Police might make a new album. In a statement to the Associated Press, Sumner said, "It's sort of like living with the elephant in the room. I would see it as a challenge, to make an absolutely brilliant pop album at this stage of our career, and that would be something quite remarkable."

Personally, I can't see it happening, and even if it did, I can't imagine it would be any good. Even before they hit the road, they sounded tired. Their appearance at the Grammy Awards should have been exhilarating, but instead, it fell flat. Believe me, I'm a huge fan of the Police. I'd love to see them make an absolutely brilliant pop album. I just don't think they have it in them anymore.
