'Lifelines' is David Knopfler's 5th solo CD. Recorded in Peter Gabriel's RealWorld Studios and released in 1991, this album marks and end to DK's experimentation with samplers and electronic instruments. Whilst David himself is not proud of the production and its digital instrumentation, this remains his most mature record to that date. Tackling with themes of politics, loneliness, lost love, war and religion on irresistibly beautiful songs such as 'Rise Again', 'Guiding Star', 'Falling' & 'Bloodline', this is an over-the-top album which was critically acclaimed and well received by fans. This is Rock & Roll at its best.
