SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that
utilizes the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to
further enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate
developed for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher
transparency, players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in
fluidity, which enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for
a low resolution format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements
in a real high resolution format such as SACD.
Despite the fact that Love Over Gold contains only five songs, the powerful
effect of these selections makes this Dire Straits' more underrated record.
Building on the ambitious arrangements and more sophisticated story-songs that
made up the prior Making Movies, Mark Knopfler audaciously composed "Telegraph
Road," a near-15-minute cut that traces society's technological evolution.
Although this kind of subject matter might sound ostensibly dry, Knopfler's
crisp playing and warm raspy voice, combined with Alan Clark's gorgeous keyboard
runs, makes for a sweeping experience..
Dire Straits added a new rhythm guitarist expanding its sounds and ambitions on
the sprawling Love Over Gold. In a sense, the album is their prog rock effort,
containing only five songs, including the 14-minute opener "Telegraph Road."
Mark Knopfler's skilled, tasteful guitar sustains throughout atmospheric,
"Dire Straits emerged during the post-punk era of the late '70s, and while their
sound was minimalistic and stripped down, they owed little to punk. If anything,
the band was a direct outgrowth of the roots revivalism of pub rock. Led by
guitarist/vocalist Mark Knopfler, the group built their sound upon the laid-back
blues-rock of J.J. Cale, but they also had jazz and country inflections,
occasionally dipping into the epic song structures of progressive rock." - All
