Knopfler's Best!

Within the very narrow corridors of the iTunes obsessed (music as disposable content) recording industry, Mark Knopfler's Kill To Get Crimson is a welcome reminder of a not too distant past when complete "albums" were not just the medium but the message as well.

Knopfler's work on KTGC is nothing short of astonishing, vividly flowing together as a twelve title song cycle that strolls through the last three generations of British popular (and not so popular) culture - looking through the window of pawn brokers, failed artists, humbled actors, corporate sycophants and the occasional MILF. This is Britannic Tin Pan Alley and is easily the best work that Knopfler has ever done.

The shimmering production and fully realized artistic vision makes KTGC an essential and critical distraction from an era where rock stars are either invented on games shows or lamely masquerade as Disney Channel ingenues.

VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
