Maybe I'm in the minority but I'd like a double album plus bonus tracks. Yes, I want a repeat of 2012 :)

Quantity over quality, then.


I on the other hand hope they are really cherry picking and choose the absolute best songs they can fit on ONE LP.

I would like a double album too, Mark must have written many, many songs during lockdown alone.
Knopfler, Oldfield and Gilmour is all the guitar I need.

Love Over Gold was recently voted best DS album on this very forum with only 5 songs.  Quality over quantity.

Ideally I'd like one really great album and then a pile of good bonus tracks.

I see an album as a whole "thing", to be enjoyed in a single sitting. This is harder to pull off with a double album. Just make a good album then give us get a lifers the other tracks.

I mentioned the album "Privateering" because Mark originally thought about a blues album but gave up on this idea, so he mixed blues tracks with others.

I TOTALLY agree with you. And, even more important, I don't think that the Priveteering double was "quantity over quality". There were true gems, and many many high level songs by Mark... It would be absolutely great to have a double, after all these years

Yes, Privateering has gems, but to have Corned Beef City, Gator Blood and I Used To Could on there, three very similar songs? Weird.

HAHAHAHA!
That's true.

i'm afraid about this 'multitude of songs' or 'the album is not fixed in one gender only'

Last time i read one of this sentences, a couple of months later came the DTRW... a zillion songs and only one or two songs catched me.

DTRW, MK's worst work, ever.

Yes, i hope it will be a cool double-album, 2-CD-Set, 2-Vinyl-Set, for example with carefully chosen tracks by MK and his buddies. A deluxe-Box-Set will also be fine, filled with some treasuries like some outtakes or unreleased stuff.  :think 8)

Well, for me it's simple, it's Mark Knopfler, one of the greatest ever song writers, so more songs from him I can hear the better :) and with the touring thing having ended, I feel he will be recording more songs more often, not just after a tour.
Knopfler, Oldfield and Gilmour is all the guitar I need.
