Dire Straits: Brothers in Arms        (3 of 6 found this review helpful)
  June 5, 2005

An early all digital rock album, it's got a lot of really good songs that open up nicely on this 5.1 multichannel release, which makes the disc essential.

vonwegan's review is spot on, but I thought I'd pitch in my $0.02 anyway. I had the redbook-only CD for about a year before the Dylan SACDs came out, and I had grown to really like it.
