...it's easy to hear what attracted Gillett and Phonograph execs to Dire Straits, but it's also important to acknowledge that the band's sound was entirely out of step with everything else that was going on in rock during the late '70s. Though Knopfler's distinctive lead guitar was often the focal point of the music, his playing resisted big hooks and flashy solos, and Muff Winwood's clean production on Dire Straits was the antithesis of the rawer, heavier sound that was popular with a lot of younger acts. Neither punk nor disco, glam nor metal, Dire Straits existed in a part of the musical landscape all its own. - Ultimate Classic Rock
