These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Epic Riff: One of the hallmarks of the band are Knopfler's guitar riffs, but "Money for Nothing" and "Sultans of Swing" particularly stand out. "Walk Of Life" is also known for its distinctive synth riff.
Sophomore Slump: Somewhat. "Communique" is more laidback and less commericial than their first album with few obvious singles (these being Lady Writer and Portobello Belle). It wasn't nearly as commercially successful and many people were unaware it existed until the remastered CDs were released. The album has quite a cult following due to its obscurity.
Tear Jerker: "Brothers In Arms", sung from the point of view of a dying solder.
