Greatest Albums of All Time List

One of the world’s best-selling records and an era-defining Grammy-winning set that catapulted an acclaimed band to arena status, Dire Straits’ Brothers In Arms is the kind of epic spectacular that comes around only once or twice a decade. Surpassed only in fame and visibility during the period by Michael Jackson’s Thriller, the 1985 album remains idiosyncratic for its covetable combination of adventurous songwriting, precision-based performances, and reference-caliber fidelity. Anchored by “Money for Nothing,” immediately identifiable via Mark Knopfler’s resonant finger-picked guitar riff and Sting’s “I want my MTV” vocal refrain, Dire Straits’ fifth album is stuffed with bluesy signatures, jazz-rock motifs, clever lyrics, and organic accents. Perfection abounds, not only in the manner in which the band nails its pop hooks and uptempo boogies with debonair flair, but also in the control room.

Mastered from the original master tapes, pressed at RTI, and possessing a richness befitting the album’s stellar reputation, Mobile Fidelity’s numbered limited-edition 180g 45RPM 2LP reissue of Brothers In Arms breathes with transparent highs, atmospheric heft, and lifelike tonalities. The sense of realism this edition delivers will leave slack-jawed even the most demanding listeners. Never has it sounded so reach-out-and-touch-it realistic as it does on this analog pressing. All of the hallmark characteristics—ample spaciousness, ideal balances, widescreen dynamics, immersive depth, lush production—are here in spades. This is the hand-down ultimate sounding version of this audiophile favourite ever made.
