I've got to admit, that I don't like the album as a whole. There are just too many slow, downbeat tracks, and they're too long. I'm not going to be hard on it though, because when it rocks, its a great album. Obviously Money For Nothing and Walk Of Life were massive hits for Dire Straits, and the major appeal of the album. Despite being straight ahead rock, the lyrics are thoughtful in Walk Of Life, an ode to a busker, and scalding in Money For Nothing. So Far Away is another pop hit, and like REM's Everybody Hurts, Knopfler knowingly stripped down the lyrics to make them universally relevant. Brothers In Arms, the last track on the album, is excellent- words describing the harrowing nature of war are made all the more dramatic by the eerie keyboards and Knopflers solo. The solo itself is like the mumbled words of the imaginary soldier, sapped of strength and energy, but still able to make a passionate statement. I recommend it for that.

I've been a Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits fan for a long time. He is a virtuous guitarist in my opinion, but on this CD his song writing is superb as well. Although this is not the newest Dire Straits CD and has been out for a long time, it is still the best in my view and well worth getting a hold of. It will be one you will listen to a lot!
