Mobile Fidelity's numbered limited-edition 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 ultimate sounding version of this audiophile favourite ever made. 1985's Brothers in Arms has sold more than nine million copies in U.S. alone and 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. The album remains idiosyncratic for it's covetable combination of adventurous songwriting, precision-based performances, and reference-caliber fidelity.
Mastered from the original master tapes, pressed at RTI, and possessing a richness befitting the album's stellar reputation.
