I'd say, no matter what you say, but 5 songs just can't compete with the variety of the first album. If Love Over Gold would include all the songs it was supposed to have, then I would think a little, but here the winner is clearly Dire Straits (1978).

No matter the winner is, they're both classics even if very different. Personally I'm still hesitating. OK it's hard to compete with the variety of the first album but Love over gold features classics only so… I may skip my turn on this one  ;D

So I finally voted Love Over Gold for sentimental reasons : it's the very first DS album that I have ever played in my CD player and Telegraph Road is the very first DS song that I have ever heard. I wouldn't type these lines without it.

So… GO Love Over Gold !!  ;D

If we could only stop the poll here I think we'd all be pretty happy.  I really don't know now.  :think

Not necessarily my friend, DS is a fabulous album, granted but for me its LOG especially as ID is on there! Which incidentally is a particular fave...

Now, warning lights are flashing down at quality control........

Oops. I've looked but I don't think so.

Can someone who hasn't voted yet vote the other way to even it up please?

DONE.  Since I couldn't decide.  Nobody else has to.

I voted to eliminate Dire Straits. Although it has SOS, In the Gallery and other fan favourites, it can't compete with the musical complexity of Telegraph Road, LOG and It Never Rains.
Also, it would be great if we could have this competition for the MK solo albums.

The suggestion of a poll for MK solo albums has already been made and fingers crossed this will happen....

MK solo then another for soundtracks I would suggest.

I’m away this weekend so if someone else wants to start the solo one after this is finished, go for it.
