The best-selling albums from the greatest artists on Warner Bros. have never sounded better than on their new Warner Remasters editions. State-of-the-art digitally remastered, each album sounds dramatically superior to its original CD release. In addition, the packaging returns each album to its original artwork and graphics.
This Mark Knopfler-dominated release from Dire Straits (as if there were any other kind) features the ringing guitar work and clever lyrics we've come to expect from the band over time. The dark, moody gravel of Knopfler's voice mutters, mumbles, and muses through songs like "Telegraph Road" and "Private Investigations" and virtually giggles through the silly patter of "Industrial Disease." The title track and "It Never Rains" are solid, if unremarkable offerings from the band that has come to represent the epitome of one man's vision of good ol' rock & roll. --L.A. Smith

Every song I rate is 4-5 stars.
1. Telegraph Road: Great album opener, it is an epic, very
long. Starts out with nothing first, then comes along with a
true story. And then the song has a great ending to it. This is
my favorite song on the entire CD.
2. Private Investigations: Nice acoustic work! I love the loud
heavy metal guitar. A must listen to if you are a heavy metal
3. Industrial Disease: I love this song! It has great lyrics
and great music. Sometimes I repeat this song because it it so
funny. My favorite part is where Doctor Parkinson speaks.
At first I didn't like this, but later, it grew on me and I like
it a lot. Great work.
4. Love over Gold: One of my favorite songs on this! Nice song,
I love the ending. I think this is one of the best acoustic songs
of all time!!
5. It Never Rains: Perfect way to close this album!! This has
some of the best heavy metal riffs I have ever heard. Nice lyrics
and sometimes I repeat this track again! One of the best DS songs
Overall, the best 80's album ever!!
Dire Straits are one of the greatest bands of all time!!
Buy it now.
Love Over Gold is a fantastic album from Dire Straits. Telegraph Road has to be one of the best songs ever, its a ride you will never forget once you hear it. Atmospheric, cold and dark, this album is perfect night music. Telegraph Road, Private Investigations are best heard together, as a whole, with Love over Gold coming afterwards. The more ironical and jokingly Industrial Disease doesnt quite fit, as it breaks the relaxing tone the rest of the record sets, but its a good song. The ending song It Never Rains is a very fitting end song, it kinda works like a finale for a story without the rest of it. However, nothing can take away that Telegraph Road is the star of the show, and its hard to describe what it sounds like. Its unlike anything that Dire Straits ever have done, although it retains some of the well known sounds and lines of their earlier and later songs. Its a "Epic" if I may use a word like that, but I think its right on place.
The whole album comes out as yet another wonderful Dire Straits work, only surpassed by Brothers in Arms.
I was wowed too by "It Never Rains" which features Knopfler consciously singing like Dylan but then doing his own thing with a long, rocking finale that features a ringing guitar pitched high enough to make your ears tingle. "Love on Gold" was recorded about the time that Dire Straits was Dylan's back up band, so the Dylanesque touch is legit. Did Dire Straits influence Dylan?
There are only five songs (41 minutes of music) on this CD. The complexities of each song make up for their lack of numbers and the instrumentation is as good as any I've ever heard. These guys can play their instruments.
'Telegraph Road' is perhaps the most interesting 20+ minute song to make it onto the charts. If you shut your eyes, you can "see" the town around it being constructed in rapid retrospect, and it's easy to sense the ensuing loneliness of being cooped up in an urban sprawl.
'Private Investigations' is a reflection of the activities of the urban underworld. However, it is the different timbres created within each section which make it interesting - the best way to listen to this is to put on the headphones and turn up the volume. Mark Knopfler's effortless acoustic guitar playing is a real gem, and the conversations with the vibraphone are particularly effective.
'It Never Rains' is a truly wonderful out-take. It begins all innocent and smurf-theme-like, but builds up as the resentment in the lyrics takes over, to the point where the growling electric guitar spits venom at the end.
Self-righteous, judgemental, sarcastic, intolerant of fools - this album speaks savagely of a time when power-dressing, huge shoulder pads, too much hair and over-the-top make-up were the fashion statements, and clawing your way to the top was the predominant occupation. Hence it is still a timely voice today!

First off this is a stellar album. I don't know if it was hit everywhere but Industrial Disease was here (Toronto) and makes it worth buying the CD itself. Read morePublished on June 14 2012 by Stephen Bieth
