The first Dire Straits album you should buy, 27 Feb 2001
Unbelievable. Breathtaking. Beautiful. And that's just the sleeve! Seriously, this is the first Dire Straits album that a non-converted music fan should buy. From the start of the first track, to the background whine of Sting in "Money for Nothing", to the slight country style of "Walk of Life" (which will always cheer you up), to the last, aching, echoey notes of "Brothers in Arms", this record will not fail to impress.
