Dire Straits, "Brothers in Arms" / 1985 Review by: Mr. Media
(P) Mark Knopfler is one of Rock's best composers and it shows. recorded with talents such as Omar Hakim, Sting, and Eric Clapton, the album is the most danceable catharsis on record. The first side is an embittered commentary on Rock and Roll, whereas the second side is one long anti-war ode. This was recorded in the same studio as Sychronicity and Seargeant Pepper so it is well worth it. Unlike many other albums, it does not rely on gimmicks and succeeds ( hence "Money for Nothing", "Walk of Life", and "ride across the river".

10 out of 10.
