The last album of their career that sounded as if they were trying to play, instead of going through the motions. David Knopfler had already departed from the band and brother Mark had a free rein, clear from any sibling rivalry. "Solid Rock," "Tunnel Of Love," "Romeo And Juliet" and "Skataway" would be on any decent greatest hits package. Following this artistic triumph they proceeded to release LOVE OVER GOLD, and we all know what album followed after that, don't we?

Q (7/96, p.141) - 5 Stars - Indispensable - "...nailed to a pop groove, accessible but worth coming back to....evidence that pub rock roots were not forgotten..."
