Mark Knopfler’s guitar work is an understated delight on his first solo record in 6 years.

Its leisurely pace is closer to 1981’s Romeo And Juliet than 1985’s Money For Nothing, but Knopfler’s guitar work is an understated delight, decorating his bar-room blues songs without overshadowing them.

An enduring fascination with America surfaces on railroad heist song Tunnel 13. The title track salutes his native Newcastle.

The tried and true have stayed with him on his solo journey, marked by his poetic storytelling and one-of-a-kind deep voice. Those dulcet tones of Knopfler’s voice remain immaculately intact. Now 74, every aspect of his artistry remains at its consistently high quality.  Knopfler remains that singular, comforting voice that’s nourished us for nearly five decades now.
