    amazing soundstage dynamics and separation of instrumentation if it did not cut tracks short i would say this would be my go to pressing however i also own the mofi 2x45 lp which is just as good or better and has full length tracks but does not mean this is a slouch by no means id say if you want a good sounding inexpensive press of this this would definitely be the 1 to grab!!!!!!!!

      Brilliant sound in this pressing of Brothers in Arms. Especially the mastering and audio balancing on Walk of Life, you can really hear everything with a huge sound and clarity, I don't even know how to describe it. Pick one of these up in good shape, you won't regret it. One of the best sounding albums I own.

        Although initial reviews of Brothers in Arms were negative, the album is Dire Straits magnum opus. The album was one of the first albums recorded on a Sony 24-track digital tape machine, which came from Knopfler's desire for the best possible sound quality, and was one of the first albums specifically marketed to the new CD market. And it worked with the album winning the Grammy for Best Engineered Album in 1986. The guitar sound in particular is owed in part to a "happy accident" where a microphone was unintentionally pointed down at the floor. There is also the famous "woman tone" of Knopfler's Les Paul on Money For Nothing, which is instantly recognizable, as is the song's video. The use of Brothers in Arms in Miami Vice is also timeless. This record sounds wonderful. Full and with plenty of punch together with masterful instrument separation and a lively soundscape. The reissues do not hold a candle to this one. If you are looking to add this album to your collection, pick up a used copy from the original release period, and you will be very happy.

          The mastering on this is really well done and it sounds phenomenal. Yes, a few tracks are edited. I also have a two disc version, but this is still perfect to toss on if you’re not actively listening. I play my two disc version when I’m seated with drink in hand and this version when I’m cooking dinner. Win win.

            I have the MOFI and the Music Matter test pressings. RL did an excellent job on this. Very happy to tell you this is awesome.

              It's finally time I admit I don't need to hear Side One of this record again as long as I live. It's just too AOR yacht rock fluffy marshmallow. Especially "Your Latest Trick" which sounds like it was co-written by Kenny G. I'm selling my Mofi pressing & keeping this one. I can barely listen to the 7 minute version of "Money For Nothing" much less an 8.5 minute version. A 6.5 minute version of "Your Latest Trick" and 8 minutes of "Why Worry".... thank you, no. Yes, the sound quality is punched up to 11 on the Mofi, but this is already at 10 to begin with.

              On the flip side (literally), Side Two is worth the price of admission here. "Ride Across The River" is solid. "The Man's Too Strong" is an amazing show stealer, best song on here. "One World" is solid. And then the closing title track is an absolute classic I never tire of. So, thanks to Knopfler and company for piling all the best parts all together for us.

                Avoid these standard WB pressings. 4 of the songs on Side 1 were edited severely. Stick with the 2 disc versions of this album if you want the full versions of all the songs.

                  The MOFI 45 rpm version is clearly the best sounding vinyl version of this album.

                      Great pressing, pleasantly surprised. Knew of this album but had never listened to it. Picked up a pretty clean copy for $5, but fairly noisy vinyl. Usually any surface noise is drowned out by the music.
