Excellent album, Down To The Waterline and Sultans Of Swing are classic songs. But, again, every song is amazing besides Setting Me Up and maybe Southbound Again.

Maybe "destroys" is a strong term, but it's definitely better yeah.

Telegraph Road is brilliant indeed. "Brothers in Arms" is also up there with my favorite Dire Straits tracks. Knopfler's solo is incredible on that song.

Knopfler is fantastic. Incredible guitarist, distinctive vocalist and amazing lyricist all in one. Couldn't ask for much more.

Knopfler is so underrated. He's one of those guys people can instantly recognize his vocals and guitar yet not even realize who it is.



Stellar debut.

Ha! Recorded in 70s, and it's like a fresh breath of air when some of these come up in the playlist.
