  1. 8.0 |   The FT

    The music shimmers with reflections of Celtic folk and blues, illuminated by Knopfler’s deft guitar-playing

  2. 8.0 |   Uncut

    It’s serious stuff, but beautifully realised
    Read Review

  3. 7.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    Knopfler can still make the guitar cry and sing without airs and graces
    Read Review

  4. 7.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Knopfler's quicksilver guitar is understated, and he delivers stories of stoic ache like an old watchmaker on a pub stool — quietly riveting

  5. 6.0 |   music OMH

    A record that Knopfler’s faithful following will undoubtedly delight in it
    Read Review

  6. 6.0 |   Mojo

    His storytelling sharpens with every track but that doesn’t make for distinctive songs. Print edition only

  7. 6.0 |   Q

    His low-key, unhurried approach is unchanged. Print edition only

  8. 6.0 |   The Observer

    Knopfler’s music remains a reliable source of warm bluesy guitarwork; the Dire Straits-aping riff of Beryl is a familiar pleasure

  9. 6.0 |   The Music

    It doesn’t quite live up to 2012’s darkly rollicking Racketeering but it’s an enjoyable journey nonetheless
    Read Review

  10. 6.0 |   PopMatters

    The quality of each song is consistently good, but the album doesn’t feel very cohesive when you step back to consider the whole package
