Very nice debut.

Knopfler is the epitome of understated brilliance.

Completely agree. You can identify he is playing the guitar in the song before you know he is, for example in some Bob Dylan albums he participated.

In this album, apart from the well known "Sultans of Swing" you can find a gem not many people outside the fanbase know: "Down to the Waterline".

Pretty good debut, I'd say it's their third best album. Sultans Of Swing is obviously one of the greatest songs of all time and Down To The Waterline is an underrated gem.

For me, this album encapsulates the simple joy of playing a strat.
