I know the Dire Straits hits, and I’ve done the slightly more famous album Brothers In Arms, but it felt only right to pick up this other one - the second album that Apple Music say is a DS essential.

Obviously, Romeo and Juliet is a ridiculously stand-out song, but the rest of it is pretty good too. It’s so clearly Dire Straits, their individual sound so good from start to finish. There are only seven tracks but it still manages to take you on a bit of a journey. I enjoyed it!

Rating: 4 / 5
