I was sceptical if it is a stereo recording or multi-channel one - there is not much information on the disk. In the beginning first two songs I also was not happy with highs - they are real, but not crystal clear like you expect on a good high resolution recording.
But then I was blown away with the sound quality and as it is usual with Mark Knopfler quality of content, lyrics, and quite music. The best recording of Mark Knopfler I have in my collection, period. If anyone has Abe doubts regarding the sound quality, listen to song 9, and if you still have any doubts, replace your system with something better. The frequency range is not equal on all songs, but it is as planned, I believe.
This source easily became to be one of my favorite, and there are not so many of them. I'm in my late 50's, a musician by hobby since I was a kid and collector and listener of great music from Folk to Opera since I was a child.
Quality of the sonics is simply at a level I never dreamed possible given how bad digital is compared to high quality analogue, but this recording is a revelation and frankly; shocking in the most positive way.
Musically; well, I'm a big fan of Mark. I just find his guitar playing incredibly tasteful and creative; consistently. This CD is no exception. Seriously; don't flinch on this version of this CD.
It will knock your socks off and remind you of why music is so important to you; not that you need reminding but it genuinely is over the top. There is nothing wrong with this. There is just soooo much amazing surround out there right now, that you have to save those 10's for Hand. This one is perfect for what it is. Mostly mellow rock. Nothing gimmicky. Not always very discrete though.
Nice enough separation. Excellent sonics. Just don't expect Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots level of mix aggression. This is very, Album) much worth picking up. I'll skip the superlative merits of the songs themselves as I've covered that already, and tell you that with Knopfler you always get a GREAT sounding album. Enhanced with the DVD Audio format, it is almost too good to be true.
Assuming you have a passion for well played, tasty guitar licks, it doesn't get any more sublime or sound any more intimate than this DVDA. I'd swear I can hear the strings being plucked! The balance throughout the disc is extraodinary, the dynamics letter perfect. The intimacy acheived and the presence and separation of the music is what is so incredible about this format and in the case of Knopfler, he takes the format to its optimum.
Positively, I highly recommend this disc. As good as the first release was, this is just so much better. Had never listened to this Knoffler album before, but because of his exceptional sounding recordings and on SACD I had to give it a try, not disappointed. Dire Straits and Mark Knopfler are tops on my list of music to just kick back and enjoy. Shangri La is nostalgic of the original Dire Straits group.
As always, Mark's guitar tone is outstanding. Have most of Mark's vinyl and several regular Redbook CD's. This SACD version is simply awesome!!
Great dynamic range and warm, vinyl-like sound. One person found this helpful. This is a well mastered sacd, It really makes for a big sound, tonally sweet,well balanced, I enjoy it, first time that I have heard the songs, but they are good and I bet that the regular CD sounds pretty good too. Only change that I made on this dollar player is I put a bigger power cord on it. Song For Sonny Liston a knockout.
See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews. Mark Knopfler has Album) skill of producing Americana-influenced folky laid-back rock that often deals with uniquely British characters - North Eastern colliers, Northumbrian farmers, North Sea fishermen, dodgy cockneys and the like, as well as a few American characters in there too.
This is very much the blueprint for Knopfler Boom albums - socially aware, sensitive lyrics largely about British working characters and backed by American folk-influenced music. This is more of an American-styled album, though, with slightly less of the British folk and Celtic influences as one previous and subsequent albums.

It seems to be about a cockney coming up to the North East, "Get Carter"-style and getting killed, and some stuff about one-armed bandits too.
Musically, it is folky but rockily upbeat, as, too, is the next track, the bluesy rock of "Boom, Like That", which deals with a Ray Kroc, who apparently launched the MacDonalds franchise. Knopfler appears inspired by Kroc's entrepreneurial spirit. Some excellent guitar features throughout. There are still hints of Dire Straits here and there, but this is very much a Knopfler solo album. This is exemplified by the laid-back folky blues of "Sucker Row" - Knopfler's semi-whispered, quite vocals and that trademark understated bluesy guitar.
Most of the material on this album are country-folk ballads and bluesy, slow tempo quiet, reflective, lyrically thoughtful numbers.
The album is quite melancholic and doesn't have the "history" narrative songs that featured on his first two solo albums. The songs here are more character-driven ones. It is one of my favourites on the album. It is now that the album becomes a bit same-y. Polish Society of the Phonographic Industry.

Today we celebrate the birthday of Mark Knopfler, a man known far and wide for having been one of the founding members – not to mention the immediately-recognizable lead singer and guitarist – for Dire Straits. To commemorate the date, however, we’re actually going to shine the spotlight on one of Knopfler’s solo albums, since those release often tend to fly under the radar of those.
