5.0 out of 5 stars REEL MUSIC, 16 Feb. 2013
This review is from: Making Movies (Audio CD)
Dire Straits Making Movies album from 1980 is their defining statement and their best ever album. Listening to it after all these years hasn't dulled it's magnificence, and despite the out of place Les Boys it's a wonderful and timeless album. The sprawling Tunnel Of Love begins proceedings with great aplomb and it doesn't let up there, the sensitive Romeo And Juliet keeps standards high and Skateaway soars also,a brilliantly rhythmic track and probably my favourite on the album. The original side two kicks off with the rocking Expresso Love and the lovely Hand In Hand, then the fastest song on the album Solid Rock speeds Dire Straits towards the anticlimax of Les Boys and it's cabaret nonsense, it's silly and daft and harmless enough, but a stronger song would have made Making Movies a complete masterpiece other than just a brilliant album, which it is..:)

I totally agree with your assessment of this album James. It's my favourite as well.
