Dire Straits - Brothers In Arms XRCD

Catalogue number 5483572

The fifth, and some would say most famous, album by the band.

There are hit records. And then there are blockbusters. One of the world’s best-selling records, a winner of two Grammy Awards, and a set that catapulted an already-acclaimed band to arena status, Brothers In Arms is the kind of epic spectacular that comes around only once or twice a decade. The 1985 album remains idiosyncratic for its covetable combination of adventurous songwriting, precision-based performances, and reference-caliber fidelity.

Mastered from the original master tapes, and possessing a richness befitting the album’s stellar reputation, Mobile Fidelity’s numbered limited-edition hybrid SACD 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 hard-to-please audiophiles.

As the recipient of the Grammy for Best-Engineered Recording, the album has always been a go-to sonic standard. But it’s never sounded so reach-out-and-touch-it realistic.

All of the hallmark characteristics—ample spaciousness, ideal balances, widescreen dynamics, immersive depth, lush production—are here in spades. As is music-making of enviable proportions.

Anchored by “Money for Nothing,” 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.

Knopfler and Co. comb over grooves so smooth it seems that they’re made of honey butter.

Dire Straits would never play with such effortlessness again. Experience this era-defining classic in the best-possible fidelity!
