My entry album for Dire Straits having loved the singles at the time - the title track is so delicate and emotional and one of my top all time tunes. So Far Away and the great Money For Nothing also stand out here although less keen on Walk Of Life (bit too country perhaps?)

I always skip "Money for Nothing" and "Walk of Life" when I listen to this. If i throw those out it is number one or two of their best albums. "Your Latest Trick" made its way onto every mixed tape I made between '85 and 2002ish when mixed tapes became fairly obsolete.

Their most popular, but far from their best. It's not a complete sellout, but it definitely leans in that direction.

Elevated by three great songs. Everything else is just okay.

This isn't their best album, but I understand why most people would think it is. The album in general hasn't aged very well but there are too many good songs on here to deny it's a pretty great album. Brothers in Arms is spinechilling, every time.

I like this album a lot, but it's not a personal favourite. "Money for Nothing" is an amazing song
