Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

Product Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow April 19 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
By far the best Straits album. and thats saying alot because all the albums were great with the exeption of communique wich was OK.The first time i heard telegraph road i waws in awe. Its one of the best songs i have ever heard. It just tells a fantastic story. Private Investigations is different but still very good. Knopfler does not really sing this song he mainly talks it but the lyrics are great and its just kind of creapy. Industrial Disease is also different but still very good, and is probably the worst song on the album.And Love over gold and It never rains are also amazing songs.There may only be 5 songs but they are five inspired and well written songs.A must have for any Dire straits Fan or any Mark knopfler fan.Get it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Straits second best studio effort! June 14 2012
By Stephen Bieth TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
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. Telegraph Road is also a masterpeice. In my opinion there is not a bad track on the album.
The SACD is great for the album. I had read online that the sound was a little muddy but after listening to it I have no idea why some reviews say that. I alway found the mix on this album a little weird. Telegraph Road the vocals seem a little too far back in the mix. But this is the way it sounded when I bought the first Phillips edition back in the mid 80's. I also think because of the popularity of the live album that came out after this some people (including myself) are use to those versions of the songs.
Again in my opinion these SACD's are insanely priced. If they were $20 to $30 cheaper they would sell a lot more and they would still have a retail price of $40 to $50. I am not saying just Amazon because all retailers do it but I swear if something says made in Japan on it they jack the price up. However if you are willing to part with the money and you liked Brothers In Arms or the first record I would think you would be happy with this purchase.

Well, hardcore fans of Dire Straits, this is the best Dire Straits album I have heard ! And the "Telegraph Road" will always be etched in my memory as the best song I ever heard of any rock band. There is an aura of "story-telling" in all the Dire Straits songs, which is the most highlighted in the "Telegraph Road". The lyrics revv up images of what it must have been like, when the first cities where formed - when "urbanisation" started. It constantly reminds you of the things that people forgot and gave up in the rush of city-life. This nostalgia is pronounced in the end when the protagonist promises his girl-friend that he willl take her away "From all these signs saying sorry, but we are closed. All the way down the Telegraph Road" A must-listen for any Dire Straits fan. Much as the lyrics are beautiful, so is the almost 5 minute long guitar tunes at the end of the song. The guitar captivates me and makes me wishing for more of it when it ends!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best CD of All Time!!!! July 1 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album is great!!!
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
fan!
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
ever recorded.
Overall, the best 80's album ever!!
Dire Straits are one of the greatest bands of all time!!
Buy it now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why isn't this considered a classic??? Aug. 30 2004
By C S M
Format:Audio CD
In my humble opinion, not only Dire Straits' best, but also the 2nd best rock album ever (only U2's The Joshua Tree rates better)! Mark Knopfler is such an incredible songwriter and guitarist. Every single song is amazing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stellar compositions. Sept. 7 2006
Format:Audio CD
Mark Knopfler obviously loves to write passacaglias -- pieces of music that start with a very basic theme, played by only one or very few instruments and, often over repeated crescendos and slow-downs, increasing in volume and instrumentation to a rousing finale, performed by either all instruments or the instrumental lead "voice;" in Knopfler's case of course his trademark Fender Strat. "Brothers in Arms" has elements of a passacaglia, and so does "Speedway to Nazareth" on his latest solo release, "Sailing to Philadelphia." His greatest achievement though, not only in this regard, has to be "Telegraph Road," the opening track of "Love Over Gold." In a little over 14 minutes, the song rises from a simple opening melody, evoking the loneliness of that man walking along a deserted track at the beginning of the song's story, to a final guitar solo which is among the most ambitious and evocative pieces of music written by anyone in recent decades, anywhere and in any musical category. In between, there are no less than two other guitar solos, each of them over a minute long; dramatic centerpieces in their own right in any song but this one. And like the song's instrumentation, its lyrics trace the story of civilization from that one man walking along a track to a modern city, with six lines of traffic (three lines moving slow), unemployment, desolation and anger; so apparent in Knopfler's coarse vocals in the final verse and echoed with even greater force in the instrumental finale.

5.0 out of 5 stars rock and roll craftmanship
This is probably the most adventurous of the Dire Straits CDs, featuring long, complex instrumental solos, especially by leader Mark Knopfler whose guitar playing is a wonder. Read more
