    Sorry but Mark's phoning it in on this one - a couple of tracks try to raise their heads but basically it's bad Brit C&W and depressing too, saved only by the predictably high production values. Only buy if you aim to leave your kids the full MK set!

    A wry and considered thing. [Oct 2004, p.128]

    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]

    Mixes sunniness and darkness in artful ways. [28 Oct 2004, p.102]
