 Live Review: Mark Knopfler
Whereas on record Knopfler can expertly employ silent grace notes in the riffs on both "Money for Nothing" and Randy Newman's "It's Money That Matters," in front of a crowd he was reluctant to leave too many spaces open, perhaps in fear of the audience's yawning reaching his ears.
Knopfler stroked his guitar with such a feathery touch that at first he didn't even appear amped up.
Knopfler tried swaying from side to side as if to convince the crowd he was really interested in playing limp sketches like Philadelphia's "Junkie Doll," but enthusiasm eluded him.

 Filmtracks: Wag the Dog (Mark Knopfler)
Knopfler does a surprisingly good job of altering each cue for the emotion of the individual scene, especially in the more grim tones of "An American Hero," without ever losing that overwhelming feeling of nationalism that his music conveys.
Knopfler's score only amounts to 19 minutes on album, and that album makes the absolutely fatal mistake of clocking in at only 24 minutes and featuring none of the Willie Nelson and ensemble song performances from the film.
This inexcusable flaw in the album is not Knopfler's fault, and there are easily understandable legal reasons that were probably behind the absence of Nelson's contribution on the soundtrack album, but from the perspective of the listener, the album is an extremely disappointing experience as it stands.
