4.0 out of 5 stars Dire Straits, 8 Feb 2009
This review is from: Dire Straits (Audio CD)
`Dire Straits' is the debut album from this now legendary group. It has the classic and still potent `Sultans of Swing' with that solo that all learner guitarists try to master at some point. Along with tracks like `Six Blade Knife', `Wild West End' and `Lions' this makes for one very fresh and clean sounding album. There's no heavy distortion on the guitars like `Money For Nothing' or dark brooding music like `Brothers in Arms' but there is wonderful song writing and great musicianship. The remastered version I have has new liner notes giving some history to this album and overall this is a brilliant album that shows the potential in this group that they then went on to live up to. Well worth adding to your collection.
