Blockbuster Brothers In Arms Helped Define 80s, Catapulted Dire Straits to Arena Status

The End-All-Be-All Ultimate-Sounding Version of This Audiophile Standard: Mobile Fidelity 180g 45RPM 2LP Captures Delicate Nuances, Revealing Textures, Finite Information

1985's Brothers In Arms Has Sold More Than Nine Million Copies in U.S. Alone, Ranks #351 on Rolling Stone's 500 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 ultimatesounding
version of this audiophile favorite ever made.
