Is anyone else a fan of them? Their vocals and instrumental talent are just out of this world in my opinion and Dire Straits is what got me into classic rock at the age of 7 or 8 when I heard "Money for Nothing" on the car ride home from a ski hill. Since then, I've fallen in love with songs like Walk of Life, So Far Away, Brothers in Arms, and of course Sultans of Swing.

To this day, Sultans of Swing, with the Not quite southern rock but not quite pop rock genre, has always represented my taste in music... sharing characteristics.

I've never really been able to describe Sultans of Swing. I can describe Free Bird as southern rock; Enter Sandman as Heavy Metal, Heart Shaped Box as grunge; and so on. But yeah, I've never been able to put my finger on Sultans of Swing. The guitar work is amazing and the lyrics flow in just the right way. You're definitely right about it not being pop rock or southern rock, but somewhere in between.

Damn man, their "Brothers in Arms" album is killer! Perfect to chill on sunny days, especially the second part of album! Of course I love Money For Nothing with that killing guitar riff!

I like them well enough. They have a few good songs, but I probably wouldn't go out of my way to listen to them specifically.

I'm not a huge fan or anything but I like Dire Straits. They don't usually make it into the mic but if I hear a song I won't change it or think badly of it. Sultans of Swing is a classic.
