    The only hard time I have with Mark Knopfler's music is when it's time to figure out which album I want to listen to. Shanrgi-la only delights, after countless spins.

  1. A wry and considered thing. [Oct 2004, p.128]
  2. 40
    Like [J.J.] Cale, Knopfler prefers murmuring to emoting while threading fancy little guitar figures through songs that can't decide whether to shuffle into the haze or nod off. [Nov 2004, p.136]
  3. Mixes sunniness and darkness in artful ways. [28 Oct 2004, p.102]
