Product Description

The best-selling albums from the greatest artists on Warner Bros. have never sounded better than on their new Warner Remasters editions.

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

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!!

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.

When most people think of Dire Straits, they tend to either say "Romeo & Juliet" or "Sultans of Swing", or "Walk of Life" And "Money for Nothing". Few of those I meet actually mentiones this beauty.
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.

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!

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. "Telegraph Road", one of Knopfler's best songs, is an epic tale in 14 minutes. "Private Investigations" starts slow and boring with semi-spoken lyrics but has a spectacular three-guitar, keyboard, and drum instrumental finale. The bass lays down a heavy slow rhythm, Knopfler's classic acoustic carries the melody, and the rhythm guitar and piano add powerful dramatic riffs.
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.
