  • Great album...

    ....and I was fortunate to see the tour for this album as a GI stationed in Germany . I was a minor fan of the band before I saw them live and became a huge fan after seeing them. Mark Knopfler is an amazing guitarist and this CD helps to show his creativeness. A must buy CD for anyone that appreciates "guitar" music.
  • A timeless classic!

  • MK: Last of the Epic Songwriters

    By Maloof23
    The iTunes review of this album does not do justice to the tremendous compositional virtuosity of Mark Knopfler and the largely overlooked versatility of the Dire Straits rock and roll band. While the Straits made their name with the earlier, radio friendly hits like Sultans of Swing and Lady Writer, their multi-dimensional musical repertoire shines through on the experimental masterpiece, Private Investigations, and the lyrically moving title track, Love Over Gold. While the longer run times may make this album less radio friendly, and thus less appreciated by pithy pop music crits, the songs are a masterful tribute to Knopfler's storytelling prowess and guitar ingenuity. The opening track, Telegraph Road, is Knopfler's tour de force and should always be mentioned with the likes of Stairway To Heaven and Comfortably Numb in the ranks of epic songwriting achievements that will forever bask in perpetual rock glory.
  • It Never Rains!

    By KazzCreative
    the main review of this album is way out of touch this is dire straits' best album by far who cares how many tracks there are or if telegraph road is 14 minutes long? it is a masterpiece
  • amazing

    By MrAndersdu
    When I was 15 or 16 (early 80s) I heard Industrial Disease and immediately went out and bought this album thinking these Dire Straits folks must write a bunch of poppy, dance tunes. To my shock it was all this mellow, melodic piano/guitar duets. Disappointed, the album sat unlistened to until one day I put it on again and listened... and let it wash over me. I was hooked. Telegraph Road is one of the great rock masterpieces of Knopfler's generation. Amazing stuff.

Music is the art of arranging sounds in time to produce a composition through the elements of melody, harmony, rhythm, and timbre. It is one of the universal cultural aspects of all human societies. General definitions of music include common elements such as pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics (loudness and softness), and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture (which are sometimes termed the "color" of a musical sound). Different styles or types of music may emphasize, de-emphasize or omit some of these elements. Music is performed with a vast range of instruments and vocal techniques ranging from singing to rapping; there are solely instrumental pieces, solely vocal pieces (such as songs without instrumental accompaniment) and pieces that combine singing and instruments. The word derives from Greek μουσική (mousike; "(art) of the Muses"); see § Etymology and glossary of musical terminology.

Music can be divided into genres (e.g., country music) and genres can be further divided into subgenres (e.g., country blues and pop country are two of the many country subgenres), although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often subtle, sometimes open to personal interpretation, and occasionally controversial. For example, it can be hard to draw the line between some early 1980s hard rock and heavy metal. Within the arts, music may be classified as a performing art, a fine art or as an auditory art. Music may be played or sung and heard live at a rock concert or orchestra performance, heard live as part of a dramatic work (a music theater show or opera), or it may be recorded and listened to on a radio, MP3 player, CD player, smartphone or as film score or TV show.
