I kept hearing this in music and book stores and everytime I did I would find snatches of it dancing around in my memory for the rest of the evening. Now, being as I was completely allergic to Brothers in Arms and the whole glossy eighties Dire Straits, this was very odd. My partner bought it for me and now we listen to it most evenings. It's a collection of beautiful songs that require you to sit and listen, as you would to a story. It's one of those rare albums that sinks immediately into your heart. Mind you, having read the previous reviews it's obviously the musical equivalent of Marmite. You'll either love it or hate it. Me, I hate Marmite but I Love this.

What a gem. Great story-telling songs that all belong together to create a great album. Top notch production and arrangements. Superb musicianship, as usual, and the best vocal performance yet from Mark.
I read complaints here that he's too laid back but that is his style and, really, always has been. Listen to the first, and best, Dire Straits album and hear how different it is to the rest of their work. Dire Straits got caught up in the whole 80's cd sales boom and stadium rock thing like a lot of artists at that time. Many of them started writing loud, anthemic songs designed to get 50,000 people clapping and singing together but ultimately the commercially oriented songs quickly lose their appeal. Artists like Springsteen and Bowie produced multi-million selling records and played to huge crowds but that period is easily their worst in terms of creativity. A lot of people still want Springsteen to re-hash Born in the USA over and over and it's the same story with Mark Knopfler and Money for Nothing. Those days are over and thank God they're not coming back. Please accept it.

Mark Knopfler`s 5th solo album takes a few steps back and recalls the tempo of Ragpickers Dream.
It`s a folksy kinda album which you would best enjoy on a cold winters night in front of a roaring log fire.Its cosy, warm and very easy on the ear.
Mark`s husky voice is accompanied by his trademark guitar licks--a variety of different guitars are used on this album--and a very tight band that play an array of instruments that comes as a pleasant and rather unexpected surprise.
The songs are obviously drawn from Mark`s memories of his youth (Secondary Waltz)and are a credit to his songwriting skills---the man just gets better with his lyrics.
True Love Will Never Fade and Heart Full of Holes are fine examples of the progress he has made in putting his thoughts into his music and , for me , are the highlights of this album.
For those who loved the music of Dire Straits--well sorry but the man`s moved on ! I feel he is is now writing and performing the music that he really wants to play and there may ( I hope ) be a lot more of this to come.
To sum up--this is not an album to get you on your feet--rather to put your feet up, relax and enjoy.
Hope this helps but I am sure all M.K. fans will buy whatever he records.
Chris

Before Kill To Get Crimson my 'Knopfler Knowledge' was Brothers In Arms, the Money For Nothing compilation of his radio friendly songs and On Every Street. 20 years on I was given Kill To Get Crimson by a Mark Knopfler guitar fan who reckoned Mark had lost the plot on this one but I reckon Kill To Get Crimson is, by far and away, the best of Mark's solo albums so far. I can actually listen to it as an album. I liked it so much I've spent time with all his other solo albums but even if I take the best two songs off each of the other albums I'm still nowhere near an album of eclectic and empathic songwriting as good as Kill To Get Crimson

True Love Will Never Fade is immediately likeable but it was Punish The Monkey [Let the organ-grinder go] that made me put the album on again. Then, The Scafolder's Wife [Don't begrudge her the Merc', it's been nothing but work]

Heart Full Of Holes has the biscuit resonator guitar from Romeo And Juliet. Arranged in six-eight time, it has one waiting for the moment when the snare drops in on the 4 at the chorus

Secondary Waltz shares the same genesis as the Sting song - The Night The Pugilist Learned How To Dance - so I guess Gordon and Mark shared similar primary school experiences of being taught how to 'do it with girls'

I returned the CD to my friend when he realized his guitar expectations had blinded him to the songs. There's lots of 'Surf & Shadow' guitar sounds; We Can Get Wild, in particular, has the most gorgeous Morricone vibratrem. But if, like my friend, you like Mark to up the tempo, toggle back the Strat', overdrive the bridge, and make a dash across the fretboard; you'd best be calling, Elvis
