iTunes Review

The rockers' fifth album perfectly blends pop nous with rock experimentation. Brothers In Arms contains plenty of the virtuoso playing and slow-burning inventiveness that made their name, but an opening salvo of radio-ready melodies leavens the mix. “So Far Away” is lovely, lovelorn blues-rock, an iconic and “Walk of Life”’s ballpark boogie is irresistibly chipper. It’s a blend of the instant and atmospheric rarely matched in stadium-sized ’80s rock.

Customer Reviews

What a great album!

I dont think I ever really knew how good this album was, it is very uplifting and reminds me of being in the car with my dad because he always used to play this album. Feel happy, uplifted, emotional, and good with this album.

Brothers you wish you had!

this is not hip, it is not cool, it is simply the best pop rock album of all time - it's in 25 million people's CD library - add it to yours asap. The top song is why worry? the pick of the album - wonderful atmosphere - guitar that is haunting! Mark Knopfler we salute you!

A Blast from the Past

I was about 13 years old when this album came out, and just "getting into" music. The fact that almost all of the songs on the album still sound fresh (especially the title track and my personal fovourite The Man's too Strong) is a testament to the song writing. Music evokes memories and this album takes me back to a great Summer holiday about 20 years ago. If you don't already own this album, buy it now...It's a keeper and essential listening!

Dire Straits emerged during the post-punk era of the late '70s, and while their sound was minimalistic and stripped down, they owed little to punk. If anything, the band was a direct outgrowth of the roots revivalism of pub rock, but where pub rock celebrated good times, Dire Straits were melancholy. Led by guitarist/vocalist Mark Knopfler, the group built their sound upon the laid-back blues-rock of J.J. Cale, but they also had jazz and country inflections, occasionally dipping into the epic song...
