  3. 7.6 |   Paste Magazine

    What does Hatfield gain from touring through The Police’s discography? What do we gain from listening? An original take on music that helped change music, perhaps, though if nothing else, at least she’s playing the hits

  4. 7.0 |   All Music

    In Hatfield's hands, the songs of Sting and the Police don't necessarily sound like hits - nor are they performed with the technical proficiency of Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland - but they sound fresh and alive, once again feeling like punk-inspired pop

  5. 7.0 |   Uncut

    Her reinterpretations restore some of the post-punk edge to a band long overshadowed by its frontman's solo hubris. Print edition only

  6. 6.0 |   American Songwriter

    This is a fun listen but also feels like a way for Hatfield to amuse herself, romping through a dozen interesting, far from essential interpretations of the Police’s music in 45 minutes as she works on new material
