Making Movies - Ancient but still worth owning

"Making Movies" was the first CD I ever bought, back in the mid-1980s when CD players had just hit the mass market. And as I looked through the collection for something to listen to that wasn't the same stuff I'd had on for the past few months, I came across it and gave it another play. And 20 years on, it's still an enjoyable album. The lyrics and melodies are sufficiently interesting to make it worth listening to all these years on, and although some of the tracks are longer than average, this isn't a negative point (and hey, the fourteen-minute "Telegraph Road" on "Love Over Gold" is still a cracking track, so at eight minutes for "Tunnel of Love" they're not even close to being overly long and boring. "Making Movies" is well worth paying a few quid for, and there are enough good individual tracks to make it worth buying the whole album.

Making Movies

I'm 20 years old, and grew up with many different bands, most of them churning out pop rubbish that makes your ears bleed. This album was released 5 years before I was born, and I regard it as one of the greatest albums I have the pleasure of owning. Apart from the disappointing 'Les Boys', every song on the album is solid, epic masterpieces. Dire Straits are one of this country's finest moments, and this album is their finest hour.

Magic

If you never buy another song then you should get romeo and juliet, the best song I've ever heard. The others on this album are good too, But I give it 5 stars for romeo and juliet alone

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...
