The Dire Strait's album, Love Over Gold, saw songwriter, lead singer & guitarist Mark Knopfler take full control over not only his band but the finished product as well, as he added the title of Producer to his credits. The result? The #16 Most Important Album of all time! From beginning to end, Knopfler created another masterpiece, to follow up Dire Strait's previous gem, Making Movies. And while Knopfler continued his new style of massive soundscapes on "Gold", lyrically he directed his genius wit towards the controlling elements of society, scathing the status quo over five, unforgettable songs that represented perhaps the finest songwriting in the history of Rock music. Knopfler took the listener on a moving journey across society's landscape pointing out how the masses were being controlled & by whom. At times the album was intense & moving, suspenseful, painfully truthful, hysterically funny, caustic & severe & painstakingly tender & honest, it was unforgettable & taught us the value of Love Over Gold!
