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.

One of the All-Time greats just keeps delivering!

Good On You Son is Mark Knopfler doing what he does best...excellent storytelling set to amazing music. Looking forward to the rest of the album!

Disappointing

Very slow moving with emphasis on story telling. This cd would benefit from a bit more high energy songs. Each of his last few cds has seen this energy wane more and more.
Where I used to download every song, I find myself picking and choosing no more than half of them. Although I have tickets to see him at the Beacon Theater, I might just reconsider if I'm going to fall asleep at my very expensive seat.
Yes...great musicians CAN make dull cds.

How does he do it?

How does a 70 year old man write 20 good songs every 3 years and go on tour and still stay fresh? Rather than an answer I'll just continue to listen to his amazing style.
