- Brothers in Arms is the fifth studio album by the British rock band Dire Straits, released in 1985.
- The first half of the album is a development of their unique brand of arena rock which had evolved in their music since the 1980 album Making Movies, while the second half consists of more folk-influenced material.
- The whole album maintains the original Dire Straits' bluesy and laid back guitar-based style whilst utilising a more lavish and bombastic production and overall sound.
- It is the band's best-selling album, the fourth best-selling album in UK chart history, and has sold 30 million copies worldwide. (Source)
