Product description

Product description

DIRE STRAITS

Amazon.co.uk

A strain of deep ennui pervades this, the sixth (and, to date, final) studio album from one of the most wildly successful bands of the 1980s. This time, though, it's the sound of an older, rather less inspired songwriter: from the amiable R&B of "Calling Elvis", to the modest countrified picking of "How Long", Mark Knopfler seems to have left his rock inclinations far behind--allowing himself only a token indulgence, on the lumbering, "Heavy Fuel". It's not a complete waste of time: his guitar work, while untethered to anything especially interesting, remains evocative; and the best track here--the sexually-belligerent, richly atmospheric "You And Your Friend"--recalls the dark view of human relations (and the splendid dobro lead work) he featured on "Private Investigations". But for the most part, this is the sound of a man losing interest in his own life. --Andrew McGuire

Bargain double LP from Dire Straits their last studio album release. 180gm audiophile vinyl release is pressed perfectly and sounds awesome.
Never having owned this one on vinyl I was getting by streaming this album,delivered within 24 hours, which is quite amazing.
Highlight tracks for me Are Calling Elvis, the title track On Every Street and When it Comes to You, though I would say there is no filler material on any of the 4 sides.

I had to buy this to complete my Dire Straits cd collection. However, I found it too American Country en fused.
Some good tunes, in places, but for this ROCK fan I will never stray to far from LOVE OVER GOLD. And indeed the LOCAL HERO ost for those quieter moments.

On Every Street" itself is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard, bittersweet and filled with unrequited longing, and illustrates Mark Knopfler's desire to convey "the essential loneliness of a lot of life experience".

"You and Your Friend" is truly erotic! You can feel a slow and sensual buildup that becomes almost unbearable with the bass turned high. Crank this one up with a special lady friend on a chill winter evening with the fireplace roaring, all you gentlemen out there, and let the fun begin!

While the more recognizable hits on this album are "Heavy Fuel" and "Calling Elvis", which are quite good, these other songs would be my faves, along with the ironic "My Parties", the hilariously satirical "Ticket to Heaven", and the mini-jazz riff "Fade to Black".

To listen to this album is to love Dire Straits in their twilight, the end of a beautiful era...
