SHIP OF DREAMS
by
DAVID KNOPFLER


Occasionally, just occasionally, reviewing the works of other people makes the heart lurch with joy. Listening to David Knopfler's latest album, Ship Of Dreams, is one such occasion.

 


From the opening track of 4U to the closing Anna Tonight there is nothing in between that cannot fail to enrapture anybody wise enough to put this into their CD player.

Written, performed and produced by the man who inspired Dire Straits to greatness, David Knopfler is still without doubt a fantastically talented exponent of his art who for far too long has gone unrecognised by the mainstream.


With Ship Of Dreams containing such heart-wrenching ballads as Tears Fall, such thought provoking lyrics as Going Down With The Waves and such melodious beauty as Symmetry Of Stars, this is an album of such sublime craftsmanship, it deserves to rank alongside anything else available today.

Listen to Mending My Nets and tell yourself the truth; here is pure genius at work.

Occasionally, just occasionally, music lovers are a truly blessed group of people and David Knopfler's Ship Of Dreams proves it.
10/10
