EDITORS’ NOTES

Early in 2018, Mark Knopfler’s Dire Straits celebrated their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame—without Knopfler, who decided to skip the ceremony. The guitarist behind FM radio classics like “Money or Nothing” and “Sultans of Swing” prefers to look forward: Down the Road Wherever, his ninth solo album, bursts with ideas. He can still spin a yarn with shimmering tales about his favourite haunts ("One Song At A Time”), misty-eyed reminiscence ("My Bacon Roll") and blues funk (“Nobody Does That”). After four decades of groovy licks, Knopfler hasn’t lost his cool.

Getting back to his roots

I love Marks music! I love that he has returned to his rock instrumentation! Keep on rocking!! It reminds me of his early solo work with was closer to the Dire Straits sound.

Mesmerizing

A truly remarkable collection from an artist that puts his talents to song in a way that no one can. Guitar riffs and fills are subtle and poignant. The story telling reads like the classics. This is an artist to appreciate like a fine wine . There is something here for everyone! There is a review here that states he found this collection boring. Perhaps, he is looking for stadium glam rock. Mark Knopfler comes around once in a generation. Enjoy and savor this work!!
