"Shangri La, Mark Knopfler’s fourth solo release and his first since breaking his collarbone, shoulder and seven ribs in a motorcycle crash in March 2003, finds the eternally laid back Dire Straits front man in familiar territory…Knopfler has more or less abandoned the British-folk and Celtic-influenced pop that began to surface on his previous two recordings, opting instead for a full-blown, yet quiet and considerate collection of country-folk ballads and bluesy, mid-tempo dirges that revel in their uncharacteristic sparseness…lovers of Chet Atkins, Gordon Lightfoot and J.J. Cale, as well as late-night poker players and early risers with an acerbic streak will find much to love here." - All Music Guide

I have had this SACD for three or four months now. It is normally not my style to listen to an album over and over again, but I find myself listening to this one almost every day.

Mark Knopfler is Dire Straits all grown up.

It's 5.1 music & recordings like this that makes me wonder why 2 channel music is still in existance.

Great SACD. The use of the surrounds is just right. Center channel and front speaker placement make this a real treat.

He Can't Go Wrong and Neither Can We

He is incapable of making a bad or boring record. Always fresh material, yet with a distinctive style, plus a super surround mix (and fantastic) stereo sound adds up to a record that will be played in my house for a long, long time.

An excellent SACD

This is a fine SACD. The material is of course top notch which is what one would expect from Mark Knopfler. Biting satire and incredible guitar playing with a solid backing band. Sonically this disk flat out sounds great. The 5.1 mix is excellent as the sound literally surrounds you. A definite must for any Dire Straits/Mark Knopfler fan.

Not his best solo work

But Knopfler can never make a bad album. He has one of the nicest guitar sounds among contemporaries.
