In his review for AllMusic , William Ruhlmann gave the album three and a half out of five stars, writing, "It's a modest effort from a modest band and, in that sense, a better representation of them than Alchemy or On the Night, both of which reflected their worldwide popularity."

With Brothers still riding the charts on both sides of the Atlantic, Knopfler continued pursuing his own projects, appearing on Joan Armatrading's The Shouting Stage , co-producing Randy Newman's Land of Dreams , and recording with his idol, country guitar master Chet Atkins.
