• On Every Street Review

    6 Feb 2011, 10:55 de Dill863

    I made it - just under a month ago was when I posted my Brothers in Arms review and now it's time to review the final Dire Straits studio album, On Every Street. I admit this is my least favourite Mark Knopfler album ever, but that doesn't mean it's outright terrible. Saying that, it's probably my least played and the one I'm least familiar with, I probably couldn't even name all the songs off it. I will try my best to be fair and unbiased in this review, though.

    Calling Elvis is the ripper that opens the album. It's probably always been my favourite off the album, but it still could've been a better track. The lyrics and atmosphere of the track are amazing and it was a great choice for the opening track. I love in particular the use of using Elvis's song titles to make up the lyrics... lucky Elvis put out some songs that rhymed. The fast little scale guitar part is pretty cool, though it gets slightly boring during the jam outro.
