    Sounds pretty damn perfect if you ask me. Absolutely breathtaking sound with a perfect level of dynamics and clarity not to mention a nice level of bass that isn’t in anyway overpowering or artificial sounding. The half speed mastering definitely brings out those top end details and gives a nice 3Desque vibe to the album especially on the extended songs like why worry and ride across the river, those two being the best sounding on this particular pressing to my ears. If you are a major die hard fan of this album like I am I would without any hesitation pick this up but also try and get the MFSL copy which is equally good in a different way but has some more punch to it, albeit doesn’t have the etherealness that this one has. All in all I truely believe this half speed master to be the best available vinyl pressing of brothers in arms.

      Very impressed by this pressing, despite the high price (though that’s always an issue in NZ). Miles has done a great job, though I do think poly lined sleeves should be the benchmark for a premium release like this. Still, great to hear this on a nicely realised vinyl pressing.

        I had the Mofi and actually felt the low end was a little too much on a couple of tracks. This version I feel is more or less it’s equal…slightly more balanced but still deep bass. I feel more subtle details popping out on this pressing. If you’re in the EU, I would definitely go for this over the Mofi as there is pretty much nothing in it imo…

          I bought this last year but never left a comment on it. Mastering is fantastic, definitely as good as the MOFI pressing (which I recently got). The only reason I bought the MOFI is because right out of the jacket I had a GIANT scratch on side 4 which creates some of the most awful sounds I've ever heard my cartridge reproduce on the last song, which is my favorite song on the album and favorite DS song in general. I only kept it since it went out of stock by every seller in the US who was selling it and was my only copy.

            It sounds really good, but paper sleeves makes some scratches & paper dents on vinyl.

              This was the first album I played when I got a vinyl player for my 40th birthday and the sound quality from this album is the reason I wanted to get into the vinyl game! The presence, the clarity, the atmosphere.. it is breathtaking! It really gives this musical masterpiece the attention it deserves. This is how music is supposed to be enjoyed!

                Comparing this to a beautiful 1985 UK press that my dad handed down to me, this is probably about the same level of amazingness. Fantastic punch to the drums, however comes in card sleeves and the records were absolutely filthy out of the sleeve.

                Definitely buy this if you don't want to pay a lot for an original in good condition.

                  Great pressing , and a bargain on release but no doubt will become a classic. I have 3 other Dire Straits on Mofi, this for me is very very close to the Mofi quality, I wont be seeking out the Mofi edition of this.

                  You could want for more re the packging ( Gatefold, better inner sleeves), but at the price point some choices had to be made.

                  Mine did have a little 'noise at the start of Brothers In Arms but that was solved with a clean in my RCM.

                  For the Dire Straits fan a must

                    This pressing is an absolutely, undeniably, tremendously great-sounding piece of music. It blew me away.
                    I do not own any other pressing of Brothers in Arms (my main comparing here is with CDs from the era), however, I own 3 Japanese pressings of Dire Straits. They all sound fantastic but for the money I if could have a choice now of buying a Japanese pressing of a record like Brothers In Arms and an Abbey Road pressing in 45 rpm I would still again go for the Abbey's version. Abbey Road Studios did a great job here, even better than in some other releases (here I'm comparing to the only other *half-speed mastering* I have - Genesis, Seconds Out) - just something about that 45 rpm versions that gives the whole record a new deep beautiful soul. The lows are great, the mids are great, the highs are great, the vinyl is quiet where it should. The cover is made well from good materials. Some people don't like the fact of no gatefold in this release, but I personally think that having a nicely produced sleeve is better than having an unnecessary "strained" gatefold (e.g like in Love Over Gold's MFSL where the inside is just black background with lyrics).
                    Anyway, GET IT IF YOU CAN, you won't regret it (especially for the money)! Probably my favorite record in my collection.
