Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 352/500!


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 Nuances, Textures, Finite Information

1985's Brothers In Arms Has Sold More Than Nine Million Copies in U.S. Alone, Ranked #352 on Rolling Stone’s List of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time

There are hit records. And then there are blockbusters. One of the world’s best-selling records, a winner of two Grammy Awards, an era-defining reference statement, an MTV favorite, and a set that catapulted an already-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.
"Comparing the original Bob Ludwig mastered LP (Warner Brothers WB 9-25264-1) with this double 45rpm edition is easy: there is no comparison… This version features explosive dynamics, super-tight and deep bass, pristine "crystalline" highs… Inner detail resolution mesmerizes, the guitars transients are oh-so-cleanly rendered and there's even air and space… if you're a fan of the music and the sound, this is the vinyl version to have. It rocks!. BTW: this sealed copy was perfectly pressed by RTI and I do mean perfect." - Michael Fremer, www.analogplanet.com, Music 9/11, Sound 9/11


Mastered from the original master tapes, pressed on 45RPM LPs at RTI, and possessing a richness befitting the album’s stellar reputation, Mobile Fidelity’s numbered limited-edition 180g 45RPM 2LP set of Brothers In Arms breathes with transparent highs, atmospheric heft, and lifelike tonalities. This is the hand-down ultimate-sounding version of this audiophile favorite ever made.

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 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. As is music-making of enviable proportions.

While it’s easy to speculate that the colossal success of Brothers In Arms relates to its timing—its release during an era obsessed with catchy singles, flashy MTV videos, and whistle-friendly melodies—reasons for the album’s chart-busting success primarily owe to the expertly crafted songs and memorable playing turned in by a group hitting its creative peak. Not to mention the spatial dimensions that cause instruments and vocals to naturally float in a fixed area.

Anchored by “Money for Nothing,” a caustically themed smash 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. Diversity and consistency also extend to the songs’ moods. Singing with his trademark light-to-the-touch timbre, Knopfler conjures feelings of poignancy, peacefulness, and mellowness, channeling wistfulness on the Top 10 single “So Far Away” and somber assurance on “Why Worry.”

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. Iconic session jazz drummer Omar Hakim supplies fluid beats and solid rhythmic foundations while Knopfler and Co. comb over grooves so smooth it seems that they’re made of honey butter. Dire Straits would never play with such effortless again.

Experience this era-defining classic in the best-possible fidelity!
