Love Over Gold is the fourth studio album by the British rock band Dire Straits, released in 1982. The album features fewer tracks than their previous albums, but each song is longer and more intricate, showcasing the band's instrumental talents and Mark Knopfler's intricate guitar work.
The album's standout track, "Private Investigations," features a haunting piano melody and showcases Knopfler's storytelling lyrics. Other notable tracks on the album include "Industrial Disease" and the epic, 14-minute-long "Telegraph Road."
Love Over Gold is often regarded as one of Dire Straits' best albums, thanks in part to its rich, atmospheric sound and complex arrangements. The album marks a departure from their earlier, more straightforward rock sound and demonstrates the band's growth and experimentation as musicians.
