Dire Straits

Brothers In Arms
Sealed 2021 180gm 2LP Gatefold Reissue. The Rhino Records "Start Your Ear Off Right" Edition, Without Hype Stickers. "Brothers In Arms Brought The Atmospheric, Jazz-rock Inclinations Of Love Over Gold Into A Pop Setting, Resulting In A Surprise International Best-seller. Of Course, The Success Of Brothers In Arms Was Helped Considerably By The Clever Computer-animated Video For "Money For Nothing," A Sardonic Attack On Mtv. But What Kept The Record Selling Was Mark Knopfler's Increased Sense Of Pop Songcraft -- "Money For Nothing" Had An Indelible Guitar Riff, "Walk Of Life" Is A Catchy Up-tempo Boogie Variation On "Sultans Of Swing," And The Melodies Of The Bluesy "So Far Away" And The Down-tempo, Everly Brothers-style "Why Worry" Were Wistful And Lovely. Dire Straits Had Never Been So Concise Or Pop-oriented, And It Wore Well On Them. Though They Couldn't Maintain That Consistency Through The Rest Of The Album -- Only The Jazzy "Your Latest Trick" And The Flinty "Ride Across The River" Make An Impact -- Brothers In Arms Remains One Of Their Most Focused And Accomplished Albums, And In Its Succinct Pop Sense, It's Distinctive Within Their Catalog." AMG Review By Stephen Thomas Erlewine.
