I know this selection isn't very cool (& these are picked by machine), but Brothers in Arms was one of the first albums that I owned on CD, and so it's got a lot of sentimental value (it was also the first CD album to gross over one million units). My favourite track on the album is Why Worry (but it's also a lot of other people's *least* favourite track!) Maybe I've got crap taste, but I find it such a relaxing song, and the guitar is really soothing.

There's a ton of atmosphere on the album, and the guitar is fantastic throughout. Other favourites are the title track and Ride Across the River.

(No, I don't know who looks after his wardrobe, but I'm sure he could afford sleeves if he wanted...)
