Mark Knopfler's solo career is what the critics call subtle. Knopfler has largely abandoned the Top 40 moves he made so successfully with Dire Straits. While I admire his integrity, I find it is hard to keep paying attention. His guitar is as terse and tasty as ever; but I would prefer a bit more energy and fire.

This is a fantastic collection of songs. It's rare for me to enjoy an entire CD, but I can listen to this all day long. It's mellow enough to be background music, but the lyrics and melodies are also beautiful. This has been on non-stop play in my car since the first time I heard it.

I was used to Dire Straits, and expected this to be a rock CD. Instead, it's more like gentle folk music. At first, all the songs sounded alike to me because they're rather soft and quiet. On further listening, I could hear and appreciate the uniqueness of each song. I'm now completely addicted, just like I am to "Brothers in Arms", and just let the disk play over and over, enjoying it more each time. My 16-month-old granddaughter cries in between all the songs because she's afraid the music's over! Mark Knopfler is a great songwriter, storyteller and musician!

One of the best cd's that BN has on the in-store playlist. Doesn't seem to ever get old. Fantastic voice, great guitars, and marvelous flow from song to song. I've been suggesting this to people who like country, folk, bluegrass, rock, etc. It's a great album that's accessible to people of all sorts of musical tastes and backgrounds.

Knopfler will never disapoint a fan.The Main BN "All Music Guide" review is pretty good.You probably have to be a Knopfler follower or fan of rootsy folk ,but on electric guitar to really listen close enough to know how good it is.If you only know Knopfler from say 1985 you will be shocked. I miss & wonder where Richard Bennett was for this one though. I love the guitar style (Its why I started playing).It's completely there ofcourse,but on this album you won't get the 1978 type playing that still makes me run to my guitar and try. I would love for him to put out one more cd that just has that "Lets show 'em some stuff" guitar playing.I'd like to see another duet cd.It might bring it out of him.Clapton got him, but Knopfler & J.J.Cale would be unbelivable. It is a great cd.Waiting for the next one.
