Start with "Discovery", their 2nd album. Then get "Homework", their 1st album.

Skip over "Human After All" and go straight to "Alive 2007". It's got all the best bits from "Human After All", but raised from their dead, robotic, catatonic loop states and brought back to life in the live mix.

1. Discovery
2. Homework
3. Alive 2007



I need an audio + video bootleg of Alive 2007. I have many of the audio bootlegs from the tour, but I want a video one. That tour's visuals were so AMAZINGLY, AMAZINGLY STUNNING!!! I need to see it again!!
Thanks, Fitz. Forgot all about this, but I was hoping if someone responded they would give me some direction on their live stuff. I saw a video somewhere of them and thought they looked pretty good live.

I think I may even go searching for my copy tomorrow... good times.


Yessss! Very solid the whole way through.

I'm glad I'm finally checking them out. I've always heard they were good . . . now I know the reason why!



Thanks, Sad!

I'd start with Making Movies if your looking for a cd. Not a sour note to be found. But they've got good stuff on all of their releases.

I'd suggest Love Over Gold myself. Telegraph Road is perfect.

If you want your mind blown to a million pieces, then I'd suggest Alchemy

Thanks mate!! I hadn't even heard of it, I'll be sure to check it out.

I'd go with Dire Straits' self-titled debut. Tight, clean pub rock, before all the shite 80s production values started to take over.

Yup. I hate 80s Dire Straits.

Thanks for the recommendations re: Dire Straits. I think I'll start with a compilation, to get an overall flavour, given that opinions seem to vary quite a bit.

The Best of Dire Straits is really good, imo. Has everything you need.

But you MUST download at least Sultans of Swing from the Alchemy album.

Get the aforementioned Tain EP. It lacks the prog elements of the Landlord's Daughter movement of the Island, but it's still worthwhile.

I'd also recommend getting the Her Majesty record first, as it's definitely my favorite of theirs and has some classic tunes. You really couldn't go wrong with any of their first three records. They're all tremendously consistent.

I love pretty much their entire catalog. Love Over Gold and Making Movies are my favorites.
