As quoted by PopMatters magazine critic, Michael Kabran in regards to mark's new album, "it's filled with sweeping strings, subtle melodies, bluesy guitar bits and Knopfler's usual smart lyrics."

With the Celtic influence and the fact he's from Scotland could be a big part as to why he charts better in the in the U.K. reaching #9 and did real well in the U.S. at #17.
