Back in the 1980's, Dire Straits were victims of their own success. Money for Nothing, from the follow-up to this record Brothers In Arms, was the signature song of MTV back when it was starting out. I and many others suffered from over-exposure to it and rapidly put Dire Straits in the 'avoid' section of the record collection. This year, on a whim, I bought this CD and gave it a play and much to my surprise, I wondered why I hadn't played it for so long.
For me, the first two tracks are what this album is really all about. The last three - side two in LP days - are more typical Dire Straits; agreeable enough radio-friendly fare, but they don't really grab me and stick in the mind like the first two. The ebb, flow and slow build up of Telegraph Road and the dark heartbeat rhythm of Private Investigations don't sound much like anything else Dire Straits ever did but that means they still sound fresh today. Four stars for the album from me because the excellence of the first two tracks isn't matched by the others, but that's just my view.
So if you're wondering whether to give this thirty-year old album a go, whether you're new to it or revisiting the albums of your youth, go right ahead. It's well worth it even if, like me, you only really listen to the first two tracks.
This is Dire Straits at their finest with some great epic tracks and lovely transients to test the power, speed and agility of a hifi system.
