Doesn't seem to be on Spotify yet. Really looking forward to this album. Privateering is one of my favourite albums.

I bought tickets for the show in Philly in October and I'm supposed to get a copy of the cd included in the ticket price. He absolutely blows me away as a musician and songwriter. His playing style is just incredible.

He always comes across as though his songs are his children and you can tell he is proud of what he does, and grateful for what he is able to do. I believe he could never put out a bad album because he always does it out of love and passion for the art. Hi songs always mean something. It's never a song for the sake of a song an the same could be said for every note he plays. The man is a true inspiration in every way.

Well, I just listened to it on YouTube. To be honest, I'm disappointed. Not to say they're bad songs or its a bad album, it's just not what I was hoping for. I guess I wanted another Privateering. I love his ballads, some of my favourite songs of his are ballads but a whole album of it is a bit much. Oh well, he's writing the songs for himself, so that's good. I'll give it a few more listens.

I like Privateering very much too, one of his best!

This new one is quite different for sure, but still good stuff IMO - some fine songs and great playing there.

Well, so maybe it will grow on your more listens, who knows..

Thanks for the posts!:thumb:

I went on iTunes earlier to download a podcast for walking and saw that on the featured list. Not going to buy off there, itunes doesnt need more money, but I do want to give it a listen. I will have to stop by Newbury Comics later and pick it up.

Mark Knopfler is one of my favorite guitarists and I have bought all of his albums since he left Dire Straits. With the exception of Sailing to Philadelphia, all of his albums disappointed me upon first listen. However, the more I listened to them, the more I liked them. Most albums bore me after repeated listens. Knopflers just get better and better.
