I originally bought "Knife" on CD back in 1986, listened to it initially, and put it away without much thought. It's not that I did not like the album; I just was not enamored with it. Recently, I dug it out of storage and gave it a fresh listen and have completely changed my mind. Roddy Frame's sophomore effort as front man/songwriter/guitarist/singer of Aztec Camera is truly a wonderful work. Frame's songwriting is more complex than on his debut "High Land, Hard Rain" and the songs benefit greatly from Mark Knopfler's production. The addition of keyboards to fun, upbeat tracks like "Still On Fire," "Just Like The USA," and "All I Need Is Everything" do not detract from Frame's playful guitar work, nor does the trumpet work on "Head Is Happy". The other tracks are on the mellow side but are well written and a pleasure to listen to. Most importantly, this CD is timeless. It does not sound dated in any respect. I am glad I rediscovered this CD think you'll find it a strong effort.
