“Outlandos d’Amour” is the debut studio album by English rock band The Police. It was released in November 1978.
While their subsequent chart-topping albums would contain far more ambitious songwriting and musicianship, the Police’s 1978 debut, Outlandos d’Amour (translation: Outlaws of Love) is by far their most direct and straightforward release.
The album was ranked No. 38 on Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of “100 Best Debut Albums of All Time“. In 2012, the same magazine ranked it No. 428 on their list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
