Dire Straits, "Love Over Gold"
Review by: Durv
Althrough Mark Knopfler's 1979 Making Movies (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 Love Over Gold represent the epitome of one man's vision of good ol' rock & roll.
