I feel like he hasn't really tried new things. You could make a random mix of songs from RPD all the way through to DTRW and none of them would sound out of place next to each other IMO...

I think mark is unique in that he goes into recordings with a relatively fully formed idea as to what he wants. Unlike us mere mortals who bumble along and see what comes out the other side.  ;D

I had all his records in a mp3 cd that i put random and what Dusty says is true, all the songs fit with the others very well.

Every record has one or two different songs so when you play it random it fits well.

Absolutely, it's just HIS style and I LOVE it.

Yeah, Punish the Monkey was a bit different. Even when things are "different", it's only a little bit though!

I was mainly talking about the different genres he writes and plays in compared to, for example Eric Clapton.
Knopfler, Oldfield and Gilmour is all the guitar I need.

I think Mark is at his best when the songs are little dark, thematically and musically. I'm listening to the Altamira soundtrack, and some of the pieces there give me goosebumps. I'd love for him to go into that direction.

He is definately stronger in writing ballads, darker songs.
One of my all time faves are: BIA, Basil, STP, RATR, Nobody's Child
What did not work that well imho: Blues and stuff like Heavy up, Ticket to Heaven.
It is somehow not his style. I like it, but it is not MK. Like Chet Atkins said: "Pretty good, but you're not Mark Knopfler"
Of course the old Straits stuff "Rockers" are excellent too: Tunnel,TR, SOS,MFN, Industrial Disease

Despite I am npt fond of the orchestral thing, I find  Ticket to Heaven being very good stuff.

I agree with you. I've always thought about Mark to be a very profound and insightful person who spends a lot of time thinking deeply about certain things,
so I think ballads or darker songs suit him better. So to speak it's more his thing.

Definitely best when his music is dark. I love Dream of The Drowned Submariner. Their is a live version which is astonishing.

Dresden and also Bad Mergentheim 2013.   

I also like his darker songs - "Back to Tupelo" is one of my favourites, but the list is very long.   I don't think songs such as "Heavy Up" suit him at all.
