The price of this CD would be justified simply because of the opening track. Telegraph Road is an absolutely wonderful, imaginative, inventive, restless, adventurous and unforgettable epic. One of Dire Straits' defining masterpieces, its lyrics match the music, recounting the story of the rise and fall of an industrial town. Yet, there is more great music on here, as you would expect from a Dire Straits CD. Private Investigations is one of the Straits' best known songs, with those classic keys at the end, Love Over Gold is a touching love song and It Never Rains is another one of those wonderfully understated songs by the band. Industrial Disease is the weakest track on here but retains the Dire Straits characteristic of being tuneful and in fact is quite a witty and incisive song. Just take it tongue in cheek and you'll be all right (like you did with Les Boys from Making Movies). This album unusually saw Dire Straits drawn into delivering some overtly political songs, with both Telegraph Road and Industrial Disease providing Mark Knopfler with opportunities to comment on the industrial malaise Britain had found itself in at the time this album was made in the early 'eighties. If you let this put you off, however, I feel sorry for you. You would be missing out on what I regard as being one of the best albums of the 'eighties.
