All things considered, Nathan Cavaleri’s latest release, Demons, is a pretty good album. It is certainly great to hear such a fine musician playing for us all once again and showing us that he has lost none of his natural flair.

Knopfler, who was always the least fashionable of rock stars, is only interested in producing the kind of music he wants to make. In this respect he is reflected in the character in “Skydiver” who sings ‘I don’t give a damn about a thing’. In an era dominated by manufactured music this is a refreshing approach, and has culminated in one of Knopfler’s best solo albums.
