    Many of my fellow Dire Straits and Mark Knopfler solo fans had made comments that they were worried this might be another CD in the recent line of his material that might seem repetitive but I am glad to say (and they agree) that it is not! The music on "Tracker" is very good as I too felt that his last few albums had not necessarily been "in a rut", but left me wondering things like, "Only one up-beat song on the CD? Really?" but of course I read how he had the life changing/almost killed moment where he realized Rock 'n' Roll may not be the lifestyle he wanted to stick with. Like Neal Peart of Rush having his wife pass away and taking the equivalent of a sabbatical/going off for a year riding his bike all over the world. It seemed to me Mark was no longer enjoying letting fingers wander over the frets and partially lost the ability to happily explore, fell into a quiet country tinged/play my metal guitar introspective vein - which I get, but I hoped his pendulum would eventually swing back to the middle. We all know Dire Straits is "done" and the stadium rock juggernaught days are passed, but just like Eric Clapton... sometimes you gotta' let that guitar ring, Mark! On "Tracker" you get a great collection of his multiple styles and ability to write music that perfectly fits the lyrics and mood of each song. This is a very satisfying collection of new material and a return to what seems a centered Mr. K! I recommend buying the set with bonus tracks. I am very happy to have this new material.

    Mark Knopfler has little to prove, except perhaps to himself. He could have easily retired several albums ago and yet here another example of why so many fans are happy that he keeps singing and writing new songs.

    Tracker is a "usual" Mark Knopfler album. This means that there are intelligent wistful lyrics and masterful guitar playing .I enjoyed it very much and look forward to his NYC concert this coming November.

    I have been a fan of Mark since Dire Striates ,his guitar licks never fail to keep you looking for more. He is just so smooth and he has some of that JJ CALE style we long for.

    MARK IS A MASTER OF THE STRATOCASTER. HE'S MATURE AND AT THE TOP WITH A DISTICTIVE TONE AND STYLE. BONUS TRACKS FOR THOSE WHO ALWAYS WANT MORE.

    Has some Dire Straitsy moments, but even without, strong, workmanlike album from old pro.
