In top 10 bands ever
They have a couple great songs in each of their albums, but the rest brings them down
Used to be my favorite band by far. I still like them but they're becoming a little bland as I listen to more and more music.
GOAT dad rock
Pretty underrated here. Knopfler is one of the best guitarists ever and the songs aren't typical 80s shit pop rock, they have interesting stories and fantastic arrangements. Love Over Gold is a masterpiece, Brothers in Arms is the popular stuff, Dire Straits, Communique and Making Movies are also very good imho.
I don't understand how the Dire Straits aren't positioned in the top 10. However, the fact that they are out of the top 100 list is laughable. 118?!? Just WTF...
Did you know that the band once joined forces with Chris Rea & Ben from Curiosity Killed the Cat. They were called Dire Rea Killed the Cat.
Listened to some of their albums, and I am so satisfied. Nothing can go wrong if you have one of the greatest guitarists of the history. First Knopfler and then the mortals.
This band is perfect, Knopfler so talented
Ranked 114? Seriously? I have them as top 5 in rock history and I thought that they were much better considered... we need to get them up the ranks. Knopfler is a very talented guitarist and Sultans of Swing is perfect.
