Product Description

Amazon.ca

On Every Street is an amazing album, if only for its apparent refusal to exploit the success of its predecessor. Sure, radio programmers could hear echoes of "Money for Nothing" in "Heavy Fuel," or traces of "Walk of Life" in "The Bug," but Mark Knopfler wouldn't have waited six years to follow up the band's megaplatinum Brothers in Arms if that was all he had in mind. Instead, he took time out to play with the Notting Hillbillies and Chet Atkins (while most British guitar heroes idolize American blues, Knopfler obviously has a thing for Nashville). On Every Street finds those influences complementing the late-night melancholy that's always been Dire Straits' specialty. Instead of Sting singing "I Want My MTV," fans got Hillbillies pedal steel player Paul Franklin adding to the high-lonesome sound of the quite infectious title track and the epic "Planet of New Orleans," along with meditations on the mistreatment of striking miners in the cinematic "Iron Fist," and some of Knopfler's most haunting guitar work throughout. The result can be seen as a dignified--and, at times, even inspiring--farewell album. --Bill Forman

5.0 out of 5 stars Dire Straits exit in style March 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
Dire Straits have evolved quite a bit during their 13-years-long career. Started with mellow blues-oriented pub-rock, they went through poppy aproach ("Making Movies"), prog-rock approach ("Love Over Gold"), and finally became MTV-darlings after their large commercial success of "Brothers in Arms". Six years of silence after that left everyone wondering about the direction Mark Knopfler would head with "On Every Street". I think, Mark struck everybody off their feet with how un-commercial this album sounds. He seems to throw away any public success considerations he might have had, and recorded 12 songs to his own liking. While this album never reached the super-stardom of its predecessor, I consider it to be perhaps the best thing Dire Straits have ever made.
Mark demonstrates solid growth as a songwriter and arranger. And his virtuoso guitar playing needs no introduction. He never shows off his guitar skills, instead inserting very tasteful and moody licks and solos here and there. This album presents very diverse material. From excellent blues tracks "Fade to Black" and "Planet of New Orleans", to calmness of "On Every Street" and "Iron Hand", to rocking "Calling Elvis" and almost hard-rocker "Heavy Fuel", to classic rock-n-roll "The Bug", Dire Straits deliver it all. They also added plenty of new instruments to the songs, like a full brass section in "My Parties", a sax in a couple of tracks, some orchestration, and something that sounds to me like a war horn on "Iron Hand". The pub-rock roots are almost gone, and instead there's a flavour of country-music over this record.

5.0 out of 5 stars Luminous Album July 29 2006
Format:Audio CD
I don't know what Andrew was smoking! This album is fantastic: hands down my favourite by the group, in particular the luminous "On Every Street".

For those who came to Dire Straits via Mark Knopfler's solo career, this album features the deft lyrics and driving guitar you will be familiar with. Knopfler's dusky voice and sure melodic touch make this a must have in any collection.

For those of you who have not yet sampled Knopfler's solo material, add his "Sailing to Philadelphia" album when you purchase this one. Another enduring treasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy It For Heavy Fuel!! July 3 2005
Format:Audio CD
I really love Dire Straits, and this album is one of my favorites. Maybe not as much as Love over Gold but I like it as
much. Heavy Fuel is my favorite song on the CD and probably the
best song on this CD. Why does it never get radio played? Heavy
Fuel has some great heavy metal riffs and it has great lyrics in
it too. It is also one of my favorite songs of all time. Other
than Heavy Fuel, I like My Parties most likely, The Bug is great!
And, the greatest, Planet of New Orleans is on here too! It starts out with the great epic Calling Elvis. On Every Street is
also great too. Here's how I rank every track on this CD!!
1. Heavy Fuel
2. The Bug
3. My Parties
4. Planet of New Orleans
5. Calling Elvis
6. On Every Street
7. When It Comes to You
8. You and Your Friend
9. Fade to Black
10. Iron Hand
11. How Long
12. Ticket to Heaven
Buy this.

3.0 out of 5 stars The last... and probably weakest of the canon May 10 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The tracks on this, Dire Straits' farewell album, are pleasant enough... but the group just seems exhausted and drained of energy, in spite of a six year break after 'Brothers In Arms'. It marks a return to the style of the first two albums with a laid-back style and shorter songs and the new expanded lineup is impressive, however Mark Knopfler's talent for excellent lyrics appears less sharp. The result is an album that didn't produce any hit singles and did not really meet expectations.
By no means a bad LP but not the band's best work, and the subsequent tour was somewhat disappointing as well. At that time Mark Knopfler just seems like a musician at the end of his life, and Dire Straits disbanded in 1995. However you should get this one in order to complete the set of studio albums from a group that were undoubtedly quiet achievers, but put out some brilliant music during their peak.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! Jan. 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album is what one should expect 6 years after "Brothers in Arms". Fortunately (or maybe unfortunately?), it shows only remote echoes of its predecessor, while sometimes it sounds more like "Missing..., presumed having a good time". The music is great and perfect, but never as popular as the big hits. Although it is a must for funs of Mark Knopfler, it might be boring for the common music listener.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite DS May 28 2003
Format:Audio CD
I love this cd. So expressionate. The song PONO is great, and you get the steamy feeling while MK writes and plays and sings about any topic, whether it is a threesome in You and Your Friend or any other topic. Quite an underrated recording. I have bought it two or three times. Really good stuff.
The CD is most likley the best that Dire Straits ever made. The songs flow and have a very humerous tone that MK can give to songs. Songs like 'YOU AND YOUR FRIEND' and 'MY PARTIES' are genuinley fun to listen to, and MK tells a great story stocked with juicy guitar riffs that have jazz elements to them.
It is a very good representative of Dire Straits, and it is the swan song for dire straits, but a very effective one.
