I'm not the biggest fan of All the Roadrunning because Emmylou's voice isn't to my taste, and some musical choices on that album don't do it for me either. I love how after all these years Janine sounds like it is straight out of that era and works 100% for me (if only we had a solo live version of Beachcombing like he did with IDUAD...).

Very nice song with nice guitar
And we have just one world
But we live in different ones

Now this is an excellent song, classic MK but still fresh. Great bass sound as well!

An absolute MK classic.
I know the way I can see by the moonlight
Clear as the day
Now come on woman, come follow me home

Just to get Janine back on the first page of the forum again. Kidding! It was my instant favorite of the new album and I’m trying not to repeat to often to give the other song listening time as well! ;)
MK’s recurring theme of change in society, people getting left behind, modernity striking. Some beautiful subtle guitar work that could’ve been extended in a live version which is sadly never coming..

A friend of mine told me a very unlikely theory for this song.

It is said that the tv series "Northern Exposure" idea was influenced by the film Local Hero, and this song seems to be the plot of Local Hero but it ends with the city sold to the oil, and the main female character, Stella, is very dissapointed. The main female character in Northern Exposure, Maggie O'Connell, was played by actrice JANINE Turner.

As I said, very unlikely and just coincidental but I found this theory funny, as I really love Northern Exposure.

Totally overrated song IMHO.  Chorus has me reaching for the sick bag.  Very nice "solo" but just when you're settling down for it it stops.  Quite indicative of the album tbh, especially the title track.  It does add some pace to the album though.

I was a bit disappointed when I heard it to be honest, but my expectations were high after hearing lots of people saying it was their favourite, and as a big country fan. But it turns out it's not particularly country, despite the pedal steel. Still a good track but not a stand out on the album for me.

To me it sounds like a wonderful Knopfler classic country song. Love it!

Go check the chord progression at 2:13

If I realised that the chances were slim,
How come I'm so surprised when the tide rolled in
