Album Review

Adding a new rhythm guitarist, Dire Straits expands its sounds and ambitions on the sprawling Love Over Gold. In a sense, the album is their prog rock effort, containing only five songs, including the 14-minute opener "Telegraph Road." Since Mark Knopfler is a skilled, tasteful guitarist, he can sustain interest even throughout the languid stretches, but the long, atmospheric, instrumental passages aren't as effective as the group's tight blues-rock, leaving Love Over Gold only a fitfully engaging listen.

Customer Reviews

Guitar God

Genius agreed, but also sublime and if you love guitars - there is only one "Telegrpah Road" - please listen and be amazed!

A superb album with an epic opening track.

There are a few albums which have a track that can be considered truly an epic piece as Telegraph Road. I first heard this track on the Annie Nightingale show on Radio 1 in 1983 when she played tracks from the new CD format, and was mesmorized. It has a great intro, an incredible mid section, and the last 6 minutes can only be described as the 'Grand Finale'. Just incredible, in terms of its lyrics, music, and sheer genius of Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits. Please iTunes allow Telegraph Road as an individual track, this epic masterpiece deserves that!

True Epic

Telegraph Road is ,quite simply, one of the greatest rock tracks ever. Put it on your POD now.

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s

Dire Straits emerged during the post-punk era of the late '70s, and while their sound was minimalistic and stripped down, they owed little to punk. If anything, the band was a direct outgrowth of the roots revivalism of pub rock, but where pub rock celebrated good times, Dire Straits were melancholy. Led by guitarist/vocalist Mark Knopfler, the group built their sound upon the laid-back blues-rock of J.J. Cale, but they also had jazz and country inflections, occasionally dipping into the epic song...
