Run, do not walk...

Run, do not walk, to get this release!
One of those rare gems without a bad song on it.
Better yet, all are very good, if not great. If you're reading this, you must listen to every sample below.
Thank you, Mr. Knopfler!

Terrific slab of Americana through English eyes

Knopfler’s solo work features a fair number of excellent songs along with some filler. This record is an exception: it's solid throughout and it has stood up perfectly. I think it's his best work post-1985. I also think it's the most diverse and interestingly-recorded of his solo records, which in recent years have become—to my ears—bland. The entire second half of this record is particularly strong. If you liked Dire Straits and want “more”, this is probably the closest you’ll get.

Knopfler on Top

This is by far my favorite solo album. Every song carries you someplace else. My favorite is Speedway At Nazareth and I can just listen to it over and over. Great album and great guitar work!!!!
