CD Reviews

His very best songs as a singer songwriter and performer
eastbird | The Netherlands | 01/05/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a compilation of Nik Kershaw's best songs. Having been underrated as both a songwriter and performer, these songs give a nice overview of the various hits he's had and the variety of styles in which Nik kershaw can be recognised.
Who doesn't remember megahits like "I Won't Let the Sun Go Down on Me", "Wouldn't It Be Good", and "Riddle" in their orginal setting? To your surmprise, you may find there's a lot more great Nik Kershaw songs, each of them as original and well produced as all of these near powerpop megasellers.
Although it does't cover songs from his latest CD's, it is good to hear litle masterpieces like "Bogart", "Wild Horses" and especially "Radio Musicola" which shoud be played loud on a solid stereo. The lyrics being what they are, from sometimes endearingly naive to sharply sarcastic, every song is a gem.
If you do not own any of Nik Kershaw's music, this is a very good start. It will get you asking for more. Rest assured, there is lots more on the Nik Kershaw CD's, including his latest ones. Nik Kershaw been one of the finest songwriters and best producers of powerpop material since the middle eighties.
Still very much underrated. This is the proof of the pudding."

"I saw Nik in concert in Bristol March 1999 and he was brilliant. This is an essential CD for those who follow 80's throwbacks, which I too follow. I have been into nik since his beginning, have all his singles and albums. All these tracks are on the LP's and are a nice addition to the other stuff.Keep on rocking Nik and we are all looking forward to Wounded and the New album in 2001......"
Same Nik Kershaw from 25 years ago (that's a good thing)

"These are all of the original songs from the original album (my original "album" was actually a cassette tape, egads). It took me back to the 80's. If you loved Nik then you will love him now."
