My first time hearing this. Reinforces My, and surely many others, desire to get off the grid and get back to a simpler lifestyle.

Their Brothers In Arms album was more commercially successful but Love Over Gold was Dire Straits best work.

I’m always amazed at how liberal artists can still write these tremendous anthems to freedom and individualit y . It’s about a man who risked and sacrificed to strike out and make a great place. Others take advantage and ruin it, and now a new man wants to strike out again.
He writes, “then came the lawyers and then came the rules”, but he politically supports that exact thing in reality from what I’ve read.
It’s funny and kind of sad, but still a great song. They do make the best music!

Mark Knopfler's guitar is the greatest lead singer in rock history.
He is heaven's house musician.
Eternity will sound perfect.

one of my favorite songs of all time - no chorus, amazing subtle guitar and keyboard work

Always one of my favorite Dire Straits songs. Not your 3 minute pop standard, but that's never been what Mark Knopfler's biggest fans want. It's unique, and features excellent guitar work.
Report as inappropriate
Which is, of course, completely against the album review, but those are generally disliked by fans anyway.
This is one incredibly amazing and moving song.

A 14 minute song? Awesome that only Knopfler could pull this off. It was not tedious or boring at any point and really flowed well.
